welcome to the forums..first off..what kind of oil are you putting in your bike ?..second..have you tried adjusting your clutch free play ?..on the oil..you want to use oil thats made for atv wet clutches..if you don't..your clutches will start to slip..for the adjusting to the clutch..try adjusting it to increase the clutch...it might be to late to adjust the clutch..if you already burnt up the clutch disk..anyway..let us know what oil you use..and if you have tried adjusting your clutch free play . the one way bearing..< sprag bearing > has nothing to do with your clutch slipping..that problem is only for kick starting..slowing the bike down going down hill..and the other one way clutch on the other side < fly wheel side >..only operates when you use the elec starter..thats it..you got bad clutch disk..or your free play needs to be adjusted.

Agree^^^ that is the number on failure for clutches, if you only ride two or three times a year you would never notice this issue with using conventional engine oil. but if you ride alot then you will noticeit right off. I suggest using GN4 honda oil you know it's right then.

I doubt that the oil is your problem if you used Castrol. It's best to use Honda oil if you can, and I usually do, unless the Honda shop is closed and I need it quick. Then I use Castrol and have never had any problems. The guys at the Honda shop even told me I could use Castrol, but not any other kind of regular oil.

Are you soaking the fiber clutch discs in new oil, before installing them? You are supposed to soak them in new oil, first.
