Clutch

What's up guys. Me and a friend were out yesterday messing around practicing come out of the hole quicker and we started burninig a little rubber. Well I left about a 35 foot mark then I went to do It again and nothing My bike is in gear the clutch is out and nothing its like its in neutral. I believe I burnt my clutche out. Do you think this is about right.

I just went out to the shop and started up the bike and the clutch ingaged. Maybe it got too hot or something. I think I might change it out anyways.

Certainly. What you have done is glazed the steels. and this in turn is from friction plate heat. I would do the all steels and friction plates. You might consider heavier springs also if your going to continue with launching.
