45 miles per year. Wow.
Thank you for the reply!For what purpose? That costs quite a bit, especially if you have it done by someone else. I did it but because mine needed it & it was cheaper than the &^%$% Yamaha parts. If it ain't broke, why fix it?
Thanks for the reply.I'm 81 years old & about all I can do anymore is put the gas in. When I needed the new clutch the dealer wanted over $1500. I got it done much cheaper than that but the guy didn't properly tighten the nut. When it failed it did a lot of damage & when i went back to him I discovered he had recently been killed in a motorcycle accident. I had another guy replace the damage & he charged even less & did it right. I have been riding since 1954 & of course I did most of the work myself for most of that time. I finally had to give up my Harley a couple of years ago when my knee got so bad I had a hard time shifting or even throwing my leg over the bike. I had also had a Majesty since 2005 & it had over 100,000 miles on it when I finally sold it. Now I have been looking for a new scooter but they are hard to find they say because of Covid. For now all I have is an electric bicycle. Actually I have two electric bikes but the twenty year old one I can't ride anymore. Knee problem again, you have to pedal that one, the frame size is too high, the motor too week & the battery too weak & heavy. The new one even folds up & is much easier to pedal when I want to.
To be honest I haven't look in there but if you look Partzilla for the same bike and year it shows a 3 pad clutch.The old style 3 pad clutches were upgraded by the factory in 2007 or 2008 to a five pad setup. If you have a 3 pad and it's a 2009, something isn't right. The 5 pad setup works very well. I've had the Malossi variator-I bought it second hand but unused, but felt it wasn't worth the money I spent, even though it was deeply discounted. I got much better results by playing with the rollers and doing some clutch tuning with different springs.
European market was upgraded to 5 pad clutch and abs. Here in the US NOTHINGPartzilla only copies and pastes. Open it up and look-or better yet do a search on this site-if they've archived stuff.

I'm sorry to respond so late. I don't get on here very much anymore having sold my last Majesty quite awhile ago. You can mix two different weight rollers by alternating them. A lot of people liked the slightly better acceleration of 8-13gr rollers, but the price of that is a diminished top end.Since I did a lot of interstate riding, that didn't work for me.Stock is 8-15gram rollers. I ended up with 4-12gram and 4-16 gram rollers, which equaled the total weight of 8-14s.It gave me just a little better acceleration, strong mid-range and didn't lose much on the top end. I changed to a White contra spring which worked well with the rollers I used. I forgot what color the shoe springs were, but they may have been the yellow ones. You might want to pull the clutch sheaves apart. It's a pain and time consuming, but there may be worn parts inside-not to mention any grease there is probably 15 years old or better.Hello,
what roller weight and what color springs made the good job, please?
