Corser's clutch concern

Published: 01 March 2006

Suzuki’s Troy Corser is warning that clutch problems on his GSX-R1000 are hampering the defence of his WSB title.

Despite finishing the first qualifying practice session for Sunday’s Australian round on the front row, he said: "Today (Friday March 3), and especially this afternoon, I had some problems with grip and also the clutch.

The inconsistency of the clutch probably caused my little get-off - at Honda corner. Next bike? Inspiration here

“It's a new clutch for this year, but it worked perfectly well in the four-day test at Phillip Island earlier in the year, so we are a bit of a loss to understand why it is playing up now. Either way, we will have to solve the problem soon or it will become a nuisance."
