I can't take it anymore, I ordered the Duraclutch. I've been putting more hours on mine since the weather is getting nicer. If I run it at high speed and high rpm it's fine, but after one or two minutes of low speed driving it's impossible to shift. I think I could fix that, but the jerky starts and freewheeling down hills is driving me nuts. Every time I come down my driveway I have to let off to slow down, it disengages, and when I get back on it it grabs and locks up the rear tires. The only way to avoid it is to drive with both feet on the pedals. I don't remember my old 500 being this bad, but maybe I'm just spoiled from driving the Mechron, it stays engaged down to 5 mph with no throttle.
