Whatever you do - do NOT put engine flush in there!

for a month or more the clutch plates on the '75 stick together. As long as
I remember this it isn't too much of a problem. The bikes are in a garage
on a hill so I just have to remember to start coasting down the hill before
I shift into first. They usually free up when I hit 2nd gear hard or hit
3rd. The bike does not see 100 miles a season, so I only change the oil
every 2nd year. The '83 is the opposite. The clutch doesnot seem to
release completely and it slips around 6000rpm. I have a gallon of Valvoline
Synpower 100% synthetic oil I was going to try in these. Do any of you know
if this stuff is compatible with motorcycle clutches? Or suggest any other
fixes. Maybe sell the '83 to Buerhle.
