hey guys i took the 636 out for a spin yesterday and noticed when i got high in the rpm's that the clutch slip, i went out to garage and performed alittle maintence on my bike, decided to check to see how my clutch plates look and noticed my steels had dark spots on them, the steels i bought was KG steels said to made around oem specs ? also the fibers look to be still in good shape and they are Versah, anybody had this problem before, i just replaced the clutch early part of this yr and didnt figure i would burn them up this quick, also could it be from to much tension from the clutch cable down by the cover bc i think i had it to tight at one moment and i let some tension off of it

all i have ever had luck with are oem clutches...no matter what setup i use they always grab the best and hold up longer. Cycle concepts on psychobike sells a dragpack or something like that and ive heard a lot of people like those. Maybe something to look into?
