2019 Scorpa 250 clutch drag

Postby Trials7 » Sun Nov 24, 2019 12:33 pm

I have a new Scorpa 250 racing, with an hour on the clock.

I have lost my clutch pressure. It intermittently comes and goes after a around 10 minutes of riding. I cable tied the lever to the bar overnight and it got better. Then same thing happened again
. With bike in gear and stopped the clutch will slowly start grabbing and the bike will stall.

There is no way of bleeding the clutch at the slave cylinder, is this normal for a new trials bike? Never had a problem with enduro bikes doing this.

Closest dealer for a warranty is 2.5hrs away. I'm told they can get air in them from freighting, also there wasn't much fluid in the resivior when I started to work on the problem.
Was it possibly low or empty from build? Also seeing small gold speckles in the resivior.

Has anyone experienced this?

Located in Victoria.

Any info is greatly appreciated.

Have you tried contacting your dealer? They might be 2 1/2 hours away, but it's still hello over the phone. They would be my 1st port of call. If I fork out all those hard earned $$$ and it isn't right, I'd be picking up the phone.

I had a clutch issue in my old '02 290 Sherco, ended up rekitting the master and viola problem solved. But in a new bike? I wouldn't think it'd be the buckets passing.

Let us know how you go with it

Yes, call the dealer you purchased from. If they can't assist, i know exactly what the issue is just give me a call.

FYI the clutch can be bled at the hose union into the slave cylinder.
