LC8 950/990 Reducer Clutch Oil Jet (Larger Size 0.5mm) – CJD-ORJ50
Why do you need a Reducer Clutch Oil Jet?
– The oil jets controls oil flow to the clutch booster system/fibers and bearings along the clutch pushrod shaft.
Some of the early ’04 950ADV bikes came from the factory plugged. The next year it was changed as these parts need oil. New bikes come with a .3mm jet. The larger you go the more oil gets to the parts. If you have an older bike, upgrade to this jet now. This NEW jet is also redesigned to help keep it clean and plug up less.
We’ve found this size is a great compromise. The larger you go, the harder it is to shift to Neutral from standstill. The .5mm offers more oil for longer life of clutch components with only a slight reduction in ease of finding neutral at idle.
– The oil jet can get clogged with fine particles. This should be checked every 5,000 miles. Most riders never check this until there clutch is acting up. It might be too late already. Having a slightly larger hole also keeps it from getting clogged as often.
– This also keeps the clutch cooler. If you ride hard, more cooling to the fibers is a good thing for long life.
If you run our clear clutch cover, it is instantly apparent that the clutch is getting more oil. A slight rev of the throttle should cover the window in oil. If you don’t see this. The clutch oil jet is plugged. Pretty easy to help keep an eye on your oil jet system when on the road. I have been using this jet size for over 100,000 miles on my LC8 950 engine.
