The clutch on my B175 is very heavy. I have cleaned up all the plates and took a little burr off the edge of the plates and clutch basket. Other than that the friction plates look fine.

What would cause a heavy clutch? I haven't touched the clutch it seems to have got progressively worse. Could it be just the adjustment?

Thanks

David

I typed "heavy D14 clutch bantam forum" into google. Works for any query.

Got the clutch sorted. The clutch basket was a bit burred making it stick and I cleaned up any burrs on the plates as well. I even managed to fabricate my own clutch compressor tool with some scrap metal, an angle grinder and welding gear. With a bit of adjustment as well and it works great
