Hey abikerider I resoaked my bearing a couple of times too and i inspected the clutch and the clutchsprings seem very soft and one spring seems softer than the others two. all my clutchspings are adjusted til the clutch adjustment nuts until they stop. i know my old hoot gearbox cutch springs are so strong i can barely pull the clutch shoes apart, but the 4G clutch shoes use very little effort to pull them apart. i know they are different but wow those honda 4G springs are very weak. Is there anything else we can do like a firmer clutch spring or lighter clutch shoes. i love the 4G accept for that pesky clutch.
