OK guys I got it apart and I am baffled by what I found. The primary, which is the drive clutch, right? Looks like this...

No wear whatsoever. All of the plates are perfectly in specs.

The starter clutch looks like this...


Look at the excessive wear. That would explain the massive amount of heat being generated and the burnt oil. The starter clutch housing even has baked on oil that looks like a well seasoned cast iron skillet.



Am I missing something? Why is it doing this? I'm lost.

OK now I think I have a better understanding of this. The "starter" clutch drives the primary clutch which sends power to the ground.

I thought the starter clutch engaged with the starter to crank the engine.
I dunno

What can I say, it's a learning process.

So I have all new plates coming for my primary and I don't need them. I need to rebuild the starter clutch.

Why the heck is it called a starter clutch???

The manual bikes have two clutches. the starter clutch (primary clutch) transfers the engine power to the drive train. the second clutch (what i call the shift clutch) is what allows you to change gears. when you apply pressure to the shifter it opens the shift clutch and unloads the transmission allowing the gear to change.
