Clutch and flywheel replaced but clutch is still slipping

My clutch was slipping so I had the clutch and flywheel replaced with an Exedy Stage 1 clutch and a lightweight flywheel.

It grabs a little better now but it's still slipping.

After the clutch is replaced, should it automatically stop slipping, or does something else have to be adjusted?

It could be that the fork is not properly seated into place (could be sitting up on the little joint it rides on), it seems unlikely but it is a possibility.

Re: Clutch and flywheel replaced but clutch is still slipping

It could also be that the clutch master needs adjusting, the new clutch has more meat on it so the grip point will be higher. I've had it happen where the grip point moves off the top of the pedal travel. It's easy enough to adjust, at the top of the clutch pedal is a locknut where the push rod meets the pedal arm. Undo this nut then rotate the push rod to move the grip point, I just cant remember which direction does which. The clutch pedal switch can be adjusted too but I suggest adjusting the MC first.

Re: Clutch and flywheel replaced but clutch is still slipping

Thanks, I adjusted the clutch using guides like this one, and now it's a lot better.

I don't think that my clutch is slipping in the normal sense, because I think normal slippage happens at high RPMs. My clutch only "slips" at low rpms. I think it's just because I have a lightweight flywheel, and what I have is clutch chatter, not slippage, because the RPMs don't shoot up. I think it's because the flywheel doesn't have enough inertia and so I have to rev the engine and not let the RPMs drop too low.
