Clutch Question

Hey y'all... Got a 2006 American Ironhorse with a 3.35 Ultima Belt / Dry clutch, Hydrolic actuator. Now I know as far as the clutch lever goes there isn't any adjustment as the clutch self adjusts... Here is where my dilema starts.. 4th -5th gear cruising... Give her hell and she will slip the clutch a bit... You think any way this had tail done rattled the adjustment out at the clutch? Possibly have to adjust the clutch? or you think it may be about toast?

I'm not familar with the Ultima, the BDL has an adjustment down at the clutch basket, I would assume their the same. My guess is you need new clutch plates, but you can try adjusting it and see how that goes.


How do you like the Kimber handguns, any rust problems?

I never had hydraulic actuator, but I think with it there,s no slack in the adjustment screw/ pushroad and the actuator piston, like you have with cable ramp.

Granted , your kevlars and steels are not warn out, perhaps you just need to back off a bit your adjustment set screw on the pressure plate so the clutch pack and spring can relax completely providing max friction without slippage. However, If you back off too far , then , when you compress the clutch lever you may not have enough clutch plates separation to give you fully open clutch- it will drag.
So I think it,s just a matter of a sweet spot.

gotcha. just had to go back and investigate. caught my eye, because my micro 9 with stainless slide has some rust spots on the slide surface, but i chalk it up to my fat, sweaty waistband.

You all and your fancy guns :P

I need to get my license and a shoulder rig for my 5'' 1911 :P

If your clutch is slipping, I was having problems on my FXR of blowing out bearings every ride, Swapped from a Heavy duty clutch place to a stock one, yours might be needing new plates and/or checking your plate spring.

I'm in San Bernardino county Calif, our sheriff is real good about issuing CCW but you still have to jump through hoops to get one.
I retired 2 years ago, when my son graduates HS, I'm out of this fucked up state. I tried to buy a master link for my money pit last month, because of prop 65 a lot of sellers are affraid to sell anything to people in California. The seller of the master link wouldn't sell to me.
Look on GunBroker,, a lot of sellers wont ship here.

I’d start by readjusting the clutch at the pushrod. Loosen the jam nut on the adjuster in the center of the clutch. Then screw the Allen in until it lightly touches. Once it touches back off the adjuster 3/8” and lock down the jam nut. Then ride it. If it still slips the plates could be toast. I sell the ungraded Barnett kit for them if you end up needing them.

Too bad your so far away. I'd love to tear into one of those Ultima belt drives with the outer bearings.
I'm retired and spend too much time sitting in front of my idiot box.
