Hi All
After a bit of advice. My Fury has 9000 Miles on the clock it has the correct oil in it and the cable it self is adjusted correctly however if I push the bike in forth or fifth the clutch slips. I can't imagine the clutch plates need replacing after such limited milage has anyone else had similar issues or does anyone know of anything else I can try before I start taking the clutch apart

I'm no expert on clutches, hopefully @krashDH is around, he's done some impressive work with clutches, but how much play do you have in your clutch cable? After 9000 miles I'm pretty sure you have thought of that, though.
Good luck!

9k is approximately when I changed mine, but more was going on than just a standard slipping issue. Are you the original owner of the bike? If not, no matter what the PO tells you, it probably didn't live an easy life. Have a read:

WTF? That's no way to tell if your clutch is going out. And what do you mean it's slipping? You CAN push a bike when it's in the higher gears -- but the gears are not slipping.

Unless by "push" you mean "twist the throttle really hard while at speed" -- but you really should do that test in 1st - 3rd gear. 9K is ridiculous time to need to change the clutch, even on a hardley. Do some more research.

Hey Vic he's got a bunch of threads going about the same issue that go into more detail that I've helped him out on...this one is kind of void. Not sure if OP knows how to navigate the site so much, but he's already changed the clutch pack out with what looks to be the wrong one anyway.

9k is ridiculous to have to change out a clutch pack, but I had to change mine out around that time too. I don't think it lived an easy life before me. I didn't have the slipping issues, but when I removed my OEM one the steels and disks looked beat, colored, and warped.

Sorry when I mean push its in the context of twisting the throttle and when a clutch starts to slip you notice it more in higher gears on inspection of the clutch the springs were sitting proud and were not torqued anywhere near what they should be so rather than the clutch failing it looks more like a error by the person who had the clutch apart last it’s a long story with wrong parts being sent to me but all good now

Just as a recommendation in the future for all of our sanity that want to help you out, start only one thread and keep adding to it if you have related issues...Ie you have individual threads about your clutch slipping, then the springs/bolts sitting proud, then the disk issue we were going over. Keep all of that in one thread

Yeah, I guess some people DO thrash their bikes hard. Mainly it was the symptom he was using that concerned me.
Thanks Krash.
