How much of what lube for Rivera Pro Clutch?
« on: Sunday, May 22, 2011. 07:08:49 AM. »
     Chain drive primary sealed off from engine. Using a Rivera Pro Clutch. How much and what type of lube have you had good luck with? Thanks, Bill

Bill, I'd still go with 8oz of ATF in there. You are still only lubing the chain. The Riviera is still a wet/dry clutch so it should be good.
EASY

I'm running 14 oz. ATF with no issues in a 77 FXE with a Rivera Pro clutch.

Bill,
I've got over 23k on my Riveria. I only put enough fluid in to reach the basket which is about 8oz.
I've run ATF, HD primary lube, straight 50w and for this season Redline MTL.
If there's a difference I really don't see it yet.

I have to say the Pro clutch is one of the best up grades you can do to an older scoot. It really works well and smooths things out. Great product  :beer: :up:

One thing I noticed with mine, when spanking new it was a bit grabby and creepy. I initially thought $!@#$!$!!!!

 My advice since has been don't be too quick to judge it, give it a few hundred miles.

Good point. I wouldn't know as I bought mine off ebay used so I never experienced that.
