new clutch.
« on: March 25, 2015, 12:04:43 PM »
Hi all. This is my 2nd new explorer. Had a weird pulsing from clutch lever when feathering (1st gear in traffic or pulling away) not right at all ! . Had 1st service done.... same problem ...checked again at dealer then taken straight in for investigation. ..warranty claim accepted by triumph and a new clutch is being fitted. I will find out exactly what the problem was when I go in to pick bike up ... anybody else had this problem with a 2015 exp ( or older) ?
i think therefore I am .....I think !

I've been having it on my '14 since day one.
At first I put it on the brand new bike and possibly unbroken lubricated components.

Now it does it say one or twice a week, only when taking off cold.

FWIW, my '12 wasn't doing it.

My 2012 exp clutch was silky smooth, I have had another bike in between explorers so I thought I was just getting used to a triumph again. I couldn't get it to it for the tech guy but 10 mins earlier it did it for the sales manager so I least I had a witness. Pick it up on Friday so will update post after I have ridden it .

Just had my clutch replaced by triumph on my 2014 7500mls explorer,seems like the clutch on my bike was misaligned at the factory,triumph replaced the full clutch assembly inc basket without any fuss,the bike was juddering,causing the gearbox/engine to chatter when i pulled away,worse when engine was cold, since the new clutch was fitted it feels lighter and silky smooth,better than when i bought  the bike new. Looks like some other guys having same fault,are triumph keeping this problem under wraps so as not to have a recall,  :084:

clutch is one of those things.

I picked up my third new Explorer in December 2017. My first ride was a 400mile round trip to Plymouth and the clutch was the worst of any of the Explorers previously owned - I just couldn't feed the power in smoothly at all and it juddered like crazy. However when I took it in to the dealer 100miles later for its 500mile service the clutch seemed to be behaving itself - perhaps it has 'bedded in' and long may it last.

Good luck all.

Same here on a brand new XCA 2017 model, first 500 km's I was ready to throw a match on it, but it must of just been a bedding in process, as it is silky smooth from there on.

Have I told how good these things are? $6,000 discount being offered by Triumph in Australia at the moment to clear MK11 Explorers.

My December 15 build (last Gen 1) had it when it was new but it settled pretty quickly after say 1000klms? Never happened since. I'd forgotten about it until I read this post.
