The clutch was upgraded on the 2002. If you have this problem with an '01 model, you can find some details on performing the upgrade yourself by clicking here

If it is slipping...and not toast from YOU slipping it I would pull it and examine it. (after warranty is up)

You may need aftrmarket/stronger clutch springs. Not a major deal-

Ive had it to the dealer 5 times, 3 times at one and 2 times at another, I have had 2 complete new clutches in the bike and only have 6000 miles on it and now my warrentie is up.

Theres a fix? maby they will install it even tho my warrentie is up since ive had so many probs with it?


P.S. New cluthes made NO difrence at all, I imediatly knew the prob was still there a few miles after leaving the dealer.

As far as me burning up the clutch, come on man get serious Ive had 4 Gsxr's and not one clutch prob.
