    haha whoops...meant to quote you instead. but oh well...

    Another way, if you wanna try,
    1. Place front wheel against wall.
    2. Engage 2nd gear.
    3. Throttle up while slowly releasing clutch.
    you engine should die off. If your rpm can go up and back wheel never move, your clutch plates are gone.

    The loud "tak-tak" sound when down shifting could be because of numerous reasons.
    - Engine oil old or not enough
    - Clutch lever not enough free play
    - Chain too loose..

    All clutch plates does is to transmit power from engine, to the gear box. Clutch plates for a super 4 last from 80k - 100k or even more depending on rider. Most ppl just change the clutch plates. The springs are pretty hardy. CLutch cable is only changed if it is worn, i.e. the wires coming apart.

    Best remedy, go to your fav workshop and get a reliable mech to check your bike. Making decisions based on answers here is at your own risk.
    Most motorcycle problems are a result of the nut that connects the handlebar to the saddle

    Hi Sealover,

    this has been discuss before. When the engine is warmed up t he sound should disappear. If it doesn't disappear after 5 mins of warming up. Then that's a problem.

    Its not so much of a problem, but just that the clutch housing is loose due to it being a wear and tear item. Not sure how much it is for replacement for super4 though. Cost me $500 for my R6.

    Question, how long do clutch cables last, and what are the symptoms that it may be snapping soon?

    I would also like to know this, since I've had a clutch cable snap on me while riding. Can be quite inconvenient..

    Also,

    Anyone tried hydraulic clutch for s4?

    - lube using abit of EO at the clutch lever area & the end of cable at the joint area

    - dnt simply "throw your clutch after changing gear".. Instead, release the lever gently

    Can explain? Remove the cable and drop a few drops of EO?

    Hi guys.

    I'm not sure what's wrong with my S4 Spec 2. Everytime I change up from 1st Gear to 3rd Gear I will hear a cluttering sound. However, from 4th to 5th it seems perfectly fine.

    Is my clutch plate from messed up and I need to change them? Any workshop you guys can recommend?

    Or is this something got to do with my clutch cable that is preventing me from a smooth gear change despite fully pulling the gear lever?

    Will appreciate any advise. Many thanks!

    @fzlj - try rev a throttle before releasing your clutch to shift a gear. otherwise check your clutch cable free play.
