    Default Slipping clutch

    I need a bit of a walkthrough on how to adjust my clutch at the clutch itself on my 2013 fz6r, my freeplay is fine but my clutch is slipping, im certain that in the centre of the clutch basket is where to adjust but more or less, how to go about it??

    Any advice ?

    The two adjustments are at the clutch lever end of the cable and the clutch end of the cable. There should be nothing to adjust within the clutch. If you're looking inside the clutch for adjustment, your plates are badly worn, or you used automotive oil and trashed the plates.

    I agree if clutch engagement is set properly and its slipping under load clutch is toast.

    As said earlier the wrong oil can cause slipping. Changing the oil sometimes stops the slipping. It may take some mileage (time) and more than one oil change to fully stop the slipping.
