F4 slipping clutch

greenspun.com : LUSENET : MV Agusta F4 : One Thread

I have a 2001 F4 and after 17500 kilometers the clutch is slipping. Is this a common problem? Or can there be something else? I drive pretty fast with the MV, but with good care. I change the engine oil (Motorex 10W60) and engine oil filter more often than recommended (last time at 14500 km).

My 01 F4 is starting to have the same problem, but only when the engine is cold, ?I'm not sure which oil is inside maybe it's time for new plates

Clutch replacement,

I rode my bike for normal use (no tracks) and have to replace the clutch now (38000 km) which seems quite normal to me. I have to replace tires every 8000 km which illustrates my riding style.
