I suggest you choose a clutch-friendly oil (ie 4T, JASO MS-2) and then flush twice.  EBC specifically says oil choice matters.

oTTo, I went the 6 yellow heavy duty springs when I changed the clutch, no slipping and not much more lever pressure, very springy  ;D

And that's exactly what's in there...

...different oil brand could help though, maybe.

I sold it.
As much as I would have loved to have kept it, I can't justify having two bikes. I'd had an RE 650 on order for a while, but got tired of waiting and bought a 2005 Triumph Bonneville, which I love. And, I have to say, the vibrations and cafe racer riding position was getting a bit hard on my 63 year old body. I did feel sad though, when the chap who bought it loaded it up on his trailer and drove off. It was a great bike for me to get back into motorcycling after a forty year break, but the Bonneville ticks a lot of boxes for me, and who knows when the RE 650s will actually be available.

Well it was a good gateway drug. Enjoy the Triumph.

I'm trying to perfect the Power Commander stock fuel map. I'm just wondering if my stalling issues on Idol and just as I cracked the throttle from 0% is an issue of the bike running lean.

Put another 120 miles on it. Only a few miles away from 9000 now and still enjoying every mile that passes.

KD...I am attaching my Map. I have never stalled since installing the PC-V. This is pretty much the stock GT Map. Compare yours to mine for differences. Hope it helps.
