My RE-5 has been getting a sticky clutch when cold lately. The oil (correct type, 20W-50) is maybe a year old but only has a few hundred miles on it. I guess I should change it.
Anyway, after I start it up I have taken to getting a few MPH by gravity before I put it in first. I get a pretty big clunk if I don't. Once I warm it up all is well.. When warm full clutch has pretty much no drag and works great.
What am I looking at here? If I need new clutch plates, where to get them?
As usual, thanks for the advice!!
It's been such a nice summer in Cincinnati that I've gotten more riding in than usual. It's usually hot and humid.
