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?
Thank you for the reply!

The only reason is to get away from the three clutch system and jerkiness on starts. I also hear a ding sound on idle on the clutch area, is that normal? As for the labor I can easily do that.

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.

Don't tell me you have a Lectric?

Thanks for the reply.

Don't tell me you have a Lectric!? I have a Lectric and I love it!

I got my Majesty at an auction the ticket said bad fuel pump and fuel tank needs clean. Turn out to be the injector, for some reason it wasn't moving I remove it clean it and triggered with a 12v battery It came back alive put it back on and fired right up. For the fuel tank I ran the pump until all the water came out (1/2qt in it) added new gas and shes been running great.

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.

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.

Thank you!

Believe what you want...There were some that made their way here. I upgraded my '06 Majesty clutch with pads and bell from a '08 model that was wrecked. The Copart in Buffalo,NY had the bike and I watched them pull the parts. I reported when I upgraded on this site, but it was years ago.

Hello,
what roller weight and what color springs made the good job, please?
Thank you.

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.
