I have recently replaced all of the clutch plates on my 2016 Kawasaki Z1000 which has a slipper clutch. After installing all 17 plates (Clutch & Steel) on the bike it has been an issue with adjusting the clutch cable, mind you this is a new cable . No matter how many combinations I have tried with adjusting the cable, the clutch cable will grab as soon as i put it in the gear with the lever squeezed in all the way and will surge foward. I was wondering if i put too many plates in the bike and that seems to be the issue

Inviitro just did this but it was his clutch cable adjustment that was the issue.

Do you have the old cable?

Read jordans post. 17 plates seems normal. All i can think of is that your stack height is too big.

You bought your plates from Kawasaki, didnt you? Aftermarket plates rarely match up when you measure stack height.

I dont have my haynes manual around. Its over at a friends place. Think you shaould call your kawa dealer and ask them what the stackheight should be and the tolorance. If your are way out side, replace some steeelplates with thinner ones , you can also order them from kawasaki.

As u can see frim the partslist 2.6 thickness is "use aS required" not all your plates should 2.6. .

So i can pretty much say with confidence your stackheight is too big. You should have started with the plates that quotes the amount of 6. From there on you measure , and replace steelplates with "use as required" untill you are within tolorance height

Is this quoted for the slipper clutch for the 2016 or the standard clutch, in my clutch I only need 1 (13089C) steel plate that is in the front right after the first friction plate that sits on the groves of the pressure plate (13187)

On my diagram 13089C(marked red) is located in the middle and quotes 6 plates. The one you are referring to (on the grooves of the pressure plate) is just 13089( marked green), you will only need 1 of those.





This is you basic starting point, from here you start measuring and swap out 13089C plates, for either 13089B or 13089D until you are within the tolerance stackheight.
