I've purchased a 2008 GT250 Comet last year around fall, it's already a fuel injected modell. Anyways, it wasn't working, the rear cylinder was completely trashed. Bought the new parts, my dad put it together (worry not, he is a car mechanic, things can't go that wrong). The engine is now seems to be flawless, but the bike has some bad clutch issues.
When I took it to a test ride, I couldn't shift up to 2nd gear. Took it back home, we've adjusted the cable. Now I was able to shift up properly, but in 3rd gear and over 50 km/h the clutch slipped, rpm skyrocketed and the bike slowed down. So I downshifted, turned around and tried to get home. After about 500 meters, in 2nd gear and at 45 km/h the clutch slipped again, and I had to downshift once again. We did another adjustment, but it didn't really change a thing, so we took it apart, turned out the springs are below the service limit.
I've already ordered a new set of springs, they are on their way. On the other hand, my dad suspects that the springs alone couldn't cause this. The driver and driven plates also got measured, they are fine and reach the standard limit.
So my question would be: What else should we look for?
Also, can somebody please tell me the correct number of driver and driven plates? I think currently there are 5 driver and 4 driven plates in the clutch basket. I've tried searching for an answer with no luck so far. Some diagrams show 5-4, yet sets are being sold as 6 driver and 5 driven, and I'm confused.
Let me know if you need any more information, and any help is appreciated.
