So the thicker discs took up all the the adjustment? Good catch.I believe that I may have found the issue. Thank you so much for posting the pictures from the service manual! I measured the friction discs that were in the clutch already and they are at about 2.8mm. Service manual stated it should be between 2.3mm (absolute minimum and replace immediately) to 2.78mm. The new discs I ordered are about 3.2 to 3.4mm.
That should solve it, with everything else looking fine. I’ve inspected the push rod and lifter rod to make sure there’s not any gouges, wear or other abnormal things and everything there looks fine.
I will be ordering some oem Honda friction discs. Where do you all prefer getting yours from? I have been looking at Revzilla, hondapartshouse, and motosport. Any others you prefer or recommend? Or have the fastest shipping?
