I think I have symptoms of bad clutch. Please help my diagnosis, and possible cure.
Riding on I-75 north of Ocala about 80 mph, feeling increasing wobble. Could be the pavement, or my rear tire. Slowing down, wobble getting worse. So I pull over to the side. Rear tire flat. So, I arrange a tow home.
While the tread was okay by usual standards, I remove front and rear wheels and cart them to an independent for a new set of rubber. Back home, with Road Glide still on the lift, I install the wheels. Test ride revealed an issue. Rolling the throttle on, I could increase the RPM WITHOUT increasing the speed. Then on a long stretch, with RPM constant, bike went slower and slower until total no go at all.
Could I have done something wrong when installing the rear wheel. Watched a YouTube video. Removed and reinstalled rear wheel. Same problem.
Moving forward to the clutch, watched another YouTube video. I've adjusted clutch and replaced rear wheels many times. Read the shop manual, followed the instructions exactly.
So, on the one hand thinking - bad clutch. On the other hand thinking - unlikely coincidence rear tire blow out and bad clutch at same time.
I've been happy with various FuelMoto purchases over the years, so started to think about their clutch.
What do you all think about the circumstance, diagnosis, and cure?
