Clutch Slippage?

Hey All.

For some reason, this time of year my clutch slips. Only in 4th and 5th, only when the vehice is warm, and only when its cold and clear out.

Rest of the year, its fine, even while abusing it on the trail.

Any ideas as to what it could be?

Re: Clutch Slippage?

Do kicks use cable or hydo? As it cools off, the cable can tighten. possibly just enough to begin to
disengauge the clutch. Does it disengage at the top? and after driving arount the wind chill can cool
it further...

4th and 5th make sense, thats when you have the most pressure on the friction plate.

Re: Clutch Slippage?

Only the Sport had a hydraulic clutch. Makes sense... my engagement is near the top. So, loosening it a wee bit may help solve the problem.....

Worth a shot.

Thanks!
