Ive been trying to figure out whats the best set up this bike has a lot of miles and has a chatter issue that got alot worse after i geared it down . I want to get it right the first time lol that being said whats your opinion for the best setup?
Go ahead and have a look through this:
The set-up I have always
used on my K5/6 for drag racing has been:
-welded slipper(takes 10min to weld)
-3 holes drilled into basket
-complete free-play adjustment after 4-5 passes
K5/6 clutches can be finicky if not adjusted properly from the get-go. The key
to buttery smooth launches and clutch engagement is proper free-play adjustment,or the bike will start to buck/grab/chatter when launching hard or aggressively.
How many miles on this bike and how many previous owners before you? Hows the basket look? Are there notches/grooves where the plates make contact with the basket/hub? This will cause several issues,such as inconsistent engagement. If you have notches/grooves then take a small file to them,or if they are too deep you'll have to replace both parts.
I cannot stress how important it is to have the clutch free-play adjusted properly. This is a must-do
,and should be checked/adjusted regularly otherwise you will have issues.
