Clutch slipping trx350D

Recommended Posts

Hey guys it's been a while since I have been on, work and life has been crazy you know the deal...

Anyway long story short I screwed up and used oil that probably was not made for wet clutch systems. Fast forward a couple months, and under full power in the upper gears the clutch is slipping. As I understand it and correct me if I am wrong, the clutch is not adjustable?? Just wondering if anyone can recommend a course plan to remediate this. I am mechanically inclined, want to get it done before I throw the plow on. Thank you for any help.

First thing you need to do is get that oil out and put some JASO MA rated oil in.  You might put it in, run it a bit, and change it again just to be safe.  Rotella 15W40 T4 in the white jug is JASO MA rated and it's cheap.

I drove around with the suspect oil for maybe a week

I've changed it with GN4 Honda oil , filter as well

So I went out and adjusted it according to shade, and fsm. No more slippage. Question, the decrease and increase on the case, what does that mean? The set screw is increasing what if I turn it clockwise? Tension on change clutch?

Thanks for dealing with my ignorance.

center bolt/screw will increase going clockwise, decrease going counter clockwise. what it means is, depending on which way you turn the center bolt/screw ? , changes the amount of tension it puts on the friction disk inside the change clutch.
