Sounds like it's time for new plates and springs.

Yeea I was thinking i need a new clutch it is just wierd cuz two summers ago I was riding it was fine then I wrecked and twisted the forks and I just got new ones and tried to ride it and it wouldn't go I just want to exhuast all possibilitys before I spend 150 bucks on a clutch


Yea it is and right now it is kinda a mix of bobber and cafe Its got hard tail struts and a solo seat with clubman bars and kind of a street fighter fairing I'll try to post picks but this winter I hope to do a monoshock conversion with a new tank and I'll cut off the rear subframe and add an older style cbr seat to it
