Default Burnt clutch now feels different

Hey all.

Today I burnt my clutch and could instantly feel a difference. The clutch now seems softer like it has less resistance and a shorter distance to push. Because of this it feels like I either need to apply more gas when I take off or let the clutch out further.

If anyone could suggest a fix or identify a problem I would be extremely grateful.

Sounds like your clutch disc is worn out and slipping. Sadly, there's no fix or bandaid for something like that. Your best bet is to change your clutch, and possibly flywheel if it's glazed.

Yeah no easy fix for a slipping clutch. Time for replacement.
