need some help guys
I just put a EBC clutch in my 07 R1, soaked the plates in Mobil 1 over night,did the install by the book. All was good. Then at about 150 miles it is slipping bad. What gives???

Just a few more obvious questions; The dot lines up with the arrow on the cover when at rest? The 3 spring plates that hold the slipper in were all undamaged (all 3 were broken in mine)? You have a tiny bit of freeplay in the lever (about 10 mm at the end of the lever)?

i threw the EBC street racing kit on my 02 03 R1.. brand new and a much much simpler install than current and 04-08 models...

broke them in properly then starting putting power on the clutch a few hundred miles in then a track day and nothing but slippage.. even brand new so i think they just cant handle high power bikes is my conclusion.... best advice is to swap them for new OEM plates and upgrae to higher pressure springs

i wont ever buy EBC again for a liter bike.. sorry man might have to bike the bullet

** side note if you cant swap the clutch anytime soon a slight improvement will come from lowering the oil level a few experts told me before. OBVIOUSLY not enough to piss off the engine sensor but too much oil will cause slippage.. drain some out until the seeing glass has about a quarter inch over the minimum see if that helps..
