Suzuki LT300F Quad

I just replaced the centrifical clutch on this quad with a used one because the original self destructed. Everything looked in good condition on the used one. The quad now stalls when it is first put in gear if I shift it into gear and let the shift lever return real fast to it's normal position. The owner of the quad says it didn't do that before. If I hold the shift lever up with my toe which keeps the manual clutch disengaged and then let it out slowly the quad doesn't stall and it will idle in gear no problem. The three springs and centrifical weights are all within specs. Seeing as how I never rode one of these quads before I don't know what is normal. There is no adjustment for the centrifical clutch. Changing the idle speed seems to have no effect on this problem even if I turn it down so slow that it will barely run. I'm hoping that some miles on it may make the centifical clutch slip a little more so the problem goes away. Any ideas or suggestions anybody?

Re: Suzuki LT300F Quad

No I didn't soak them in oil. Are you referring to the six or so fibre discs in the manual clutch or the fibre material on the centrifugal weights. The discs themselves were not replaced as the manual clutch was okay but they may have dried out since I had everything apart for quite a while. Both clutches run in oil though so maybe it's just a matter of time.

Re: Suzuki LT300F Quad

I would have soaked ALL the disc's , but like you said they all run in oil , maybe it will start working on its own , but I kinda doubt it, I would take it apart and soak them anyway, before they burn up from lack of oil!!!
