    I have an issue with the clutch. It has been replaced once at 12,k miles and it never has felt right sense. I have had to adjust it within 2k miles after replacement, due to the fact the free play vanished sitting at a stop light. I found the clutch adjustment free play on the adjuster screw was completely gone. I cannot believe I am that hard on a clutch, and I don’t see anything else to check. Any recommendations? Any suggestions including a replacement clutch pack supplier?

    the first replacement at 12k cost $435.00. They said it was a normal wear item. Choice, pay or not get the bike back.

    I never used that oil. Is it blended for clutches? Correct me if I am wrong but isn't that motor oil?

    My understanding is the Dealer uses the same oil in the primary/clutch as in the engine

    This is the 1st profound statement I have made since I joined HD talking.

    I know I am going to get a lot of heat from this one but I would not give $10 for a Tanker of Mobil 1. I have had repeated failures on several engines and applications using Mobil 1. In a testing lab, I am sure the oil is Great. But for me, nothing but failure after failure after failure.

    I won't bore you with the details but they are available upon request!!:p:p
