In Reply to: don't you need to break the clutch in? posted by KraZy007 on February 03, 2001 at 14:04:37:

i did not get on the gas until the clutch was engaged. as long as the clutch is engaged, you can floor it. i did not pop the clutch anytime during my testing. i also did not power shift. those are the things you're not supposed to do when breaking in a clutch.

i did hit triple digit speeds for a short period of time. and my test driving stints by korman were short, maybe 5-10 mins.

i do not plan on dumping the clutch or anything of the nature until the clutch is broken in properly. but yes, the clutch needs about a 500-800 mile break in.
