My 2012 RGU was slipping in 5th gear. So i had my local bike shop install the barnett scorpion clutch with medium springs. Solved the slipping in 5th but then started to squawk/slip in first gear. Went with heavy duty springs which solved the 1st gear issue but now its slipping in 5th gear again. Its been back to the shop 4 times for the issue. Either its slipping in 5th or 1st. Back and forth with this issue. Any ideas??
I've seen this issue with the only 2 Scorpions that I know directly of, no slip (124s
) but the 1st gear squawk was terrible; both on the CVO Hydraulic Clutch, I know you have a cable which gives more latitude for adjustment. Both guys went round and round with the Indys involved, with different primary fluids, installation procedures, etc...(not the Indy's fault IMO, Barnett's supplied instructions were lacking). After seeing what these guys went through, IMO the best way to fix (if, after making sure the clutch being properly adjusted doesn't cure ~ I reread and see it's an either / or issue)
get your Indy, yourself and Barnett on the phone at the same time, tell them what bike you have, what fluid, the install procedure used and see what Barnett has to say.
After Barnett sent these guys new components, and following Barnett's over the phone installation procedures to a "T", the squawk was reduced significantly but still squawks from time to time...
Or if Barnett can't fix, just installing the SE Heavy Duty Spring ($35.) to your stock clutch (might have to replace the OE plates if they are fried?) is plenty for your motor...
