Have the corks ever been replaced? Might need to replace the cork inserts... Or friction plates...

Another effort that has assisted me before, is to have the steel plates lightly sand blasted.

Perhaps the springs have lost their tension?

Looking back at your post, you may not have enough tension applied to the springs, adjust the nuts equaly tighter, but not so tight that the coils bind. Somewhere between the nuts at the end of the studs, and 'clutch in' coil bound, you should find the sweet spot.

You have lubed your clutch cable, right??? A drop of oil on the pivot of your clutch lever?

If you disassemble your clutch pack, while it's apart, check that the steel plates are flat. If not, replace.

Have a good look at the corks.
if they get too dry it is not unheard of for them all to move in a plate so that on one side they are flush with the steel with the expected outcome

Are you running the clutch wet or dry?

The only way the clutch can contribute to "not starting" is if the clutch is now slipping, and the kickstarter can't turn the engine over.

Is the engine turning over when you kick it? If so, it's time to drop the clutch and start checking compression, ignition, fuel ....

OK, I admit it, I'm addicted to brake fluid.

But I can stop any time I want.

Chripes. Now I feel like a gosh darn hero. grin Anyway the owner of this wonderful little Golden Flash will get that clutch spot on. No question in my mind. Very talented mechanical abilities. Just needs a little encouragement from us older folks every now and then.

If you are running the 6 spring clutch originally mounted on your bik yoy will find it very difficlt to work propoerly. This clutches are yust crap. If you adjust it to free out completely, enabeling easy to find neautral at standstill it will slip. If you adjust for no slip you are not able to engange neutral at standstill and you will have problems with creeping. The only way is to replace the clutch for a later 4 spring Triumph type used on later A10's. Several shops in UK among them C&D Auto and Draganfly sells complete kits at reasonable prices.

SHE IS RUNNING GREAT, THANKS TO SKEET'S HELP. CLUTCH STILL DRAGS A LITTLE BUT DOES NOT SLIP. I AM GOING TO RUN IT FOR A WHILE AND SEE IF IT BREAKS IN CONSIDERING THAT ALL THE COMPONENTS ARE NEW.

MAYBE I WILL SAND BLAST THE PLATES IF IT DOESN'T.

THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP.
