Default clutch specs

Hi all!! bought a 2001 YZ 250 last summer (nice upgrade from the '81 IT 250) took it out for its first ride this year, got into some wicked clay, jumped the chain 2 spocket teeth and toasted the clutch. I bought a DK clutch kit with friction plates, clutch plates, springs + got a jug of 80w oil. I was wondering what the specs for springs, clutch nut, cover etc. was. Bought bike private sale and haven't got a manual yet. Bike will still move but when powerband kicks in, it slips. Is there a way to tighten clutch and get last bit of use of clutch or should I just change? thanks.

You can loosen the cable so it engages all the way, but you will essentially have Zero clutch for starting and stopping.

So the bottom line is to just change them out.

What Woody said.... however changing the clutch on a new bike is so quick and easy you can do it in about 15 minutes without even draining the tranny oil. Lay it on the left side and pull the clutch quick cover off.

On my ole 125 it was 8 x 8mm bolts and then 5 x 10mm through the pressure plate and done....

Thanks
Scott

Yeah it is a really easy job. I've now done two of them and going to do the next one in about 2 weeks. Very easy job.

It's not much.

My 2006 YZ125 shows 10Nm and 7.2ft/lb for the case bolts and springs.

I don't know what clutch bolt you speak of. I would think those should work, but maybe someone else will chime in.
