Dragonfly clutch
« on: 08 May 2018 at 09:23 »

Good morning,

Can anyone put me in the direction of a company that I can buy a clutch kit from? Had mine out for its first run of 2018 at the weekend and the clutch is slipping. Also any advice on any other parts I may need at the same time, I have not done this job on a Douglas before.

Thanks in advance

Could be just oil on the clutch plate. I had similar problems with my Mark V. I followed Eddie's advice. Plug the hole in the bottom of the clutch bell housing and pour in about a pint of petrol having first removed the clutch adjustment inspection plate - you will need a small funnel. Pull the clutch lever in and use the kick start lever to rotate the clutch assembly a dozen or so times. Remove the plug and drain out the petrol in to a suitable container - it will be black and horrible. I then left the bike overnight to let any residual fuel in the bell housing to evaporate. Use a grease gun and give the clutch release mechanism a few pumps. That was a few years back and since then I have had no furher problems.
