alright i bought my 07 back in june or something like that...i've put some miles on it, i'm at about 9,500 or so an my clutch started slipping. so i drove it to my buddies garage and we tore it apart an its fried. i don't know if anyone else has had this problem but i've never heard of a clutch crappin out at 10k miles but i guess its understandable since i ride my bike the way it was made. get back to me...

I believe I am also having a clutch problem. When ever I attempt to put it in N, It slips right into first or second. Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

if your clutch is fried at 10k, its been abused. lol. drag raced quite a bit perhaps?

if your wheel spins a little on a stand that's fine, as long as you can stop it with a finger or two. this generally only happens when the bike is cold.

Yes it does stop when I touch it, I bought it from someone who used it on the track, came with a steering damper as well. I just don't want problems when the season comes around.

Worst case you need some fibers & steels.
Im guessing the previous owner might still have the last fiber misaligned which would give you additional service life if you lined it up with the rest of the fibers. You should be able to peer into the oil fill hole and see where the clutch hat is positioned before having to remove the clutch cover. You may also want to lube your cable.

you could wear a clutch stack with one crazy hard long launch if done improperly .. it can be done. You say .. "tore it apart and it's fried".. what is "fried"? did you measure the individual fibers? the manual states the minimum spec thickness (2.85mm or so), did you measure warpage on the metals ? how does the pressure plate and center hub inner surface look, how are the basket teeth, did you measure stack height ? again.. manual states the range the stack height for a 3rd gen clutch pack needs to be. how about measurement of the free length of the clutch springs ? sacked out springs will allow the stack to slip in higher gears and high rpm.
If it's done it's done. Get a new one and move on. 10k miles or 100k miles, depends on how it was used.
