2001 Honda Recon 250 Clutch Slipping

I have a 2001 Honda Recon 250..Ive put a new clutch basket in it and a new one way clutch bearing.. when i drive on the road it feels fine but when im on a trail and really crank down on the gas i feel the clutch slipping... i did not replace the sentrifugal clutch pads...do you think it is the sentrifugal pads?

When you replaced the clutch basket, did you replace the clutch discs, too? I'm assuming that's what you meant. If so, then yes, it could be the centrifugal clutch slipping.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Yeah, it sounds like they've been slipping. You can measure how much lining is left on them. The service manual lists the specs. Also, check the inside of your clutch drum for excessive grooving where the clutch blocks engage.

Soak the new discs in wet clutch approved dino oil for 24 hours prior to installing them,and scuff the steels with a scotch brite pad before you put it all back together,or it'll likely slip again,and not hold as well,or as long as it should...More than likely the slipping new plates caused a glaze to build up on the steels,and it has to be removed,or you'll be on another set of discs pretty quickly...

X2, that's how I do it, too.

You wouldn't have to scuff the new plates, but it wouldn't hurt anything either.
