I always check  before my mods, so when I removed the clutch assembly I found clutch pads I have never seen.
They looked like a kid had pasted the pads on , with pad material all over the place. Is this NORMAL?
Also I found "one third side burnt" pads. OK this is normal for standard roller weights in hilly areas. But why only one third?
I checked the clutch bell but no discoloration and no marks on it.
If I compare this with the original Piaggio 500cc clutch - man is this really an original Honda clutch I have?

Can’t explain why the 1/3rd contact (“burnt”) area but I have seen pads showing less than full contact.
Unless you’ve been experiencing clutch slip I’d ignore it and get on with your project.

However if you are suffering anxiety about it and the clutch performance you might want to switch over of Dr Pulley’s HiT clutch. Positive lock-up. No slip.

I understand that Dr Pulley has a new design for their HiT clutch too.

It looks like poor quality pads. It possibly had a high spot when assembled and is rearing down through use. My 2¢.

No, Tim I know that the burnt area will get rubbed off eventually and the pads make a sturdy expression it is just the the pad paste is not orderly in the pad form but like smeared around the pad - I have never seen that.

@easyrider I agree, but since I do not know when the clutch was installed, I will monitor it closely.

The clutch works like a charm even when we tour the mountains up super slow in the 20 kmh and just 3000 rpm it works quiet and is fully controllable, just a little twist and I have 4000 rpm at 20 kmh.

With my 4 slider setup is never a need for the function of the HIT clutch.
I can force the clutch to engage real slow including slippage or engage slow and then rip open the throttle and have instant 5000 rpm what does what the HIT clutch does- really press the pads on the bell.

I can have a docile pussy cat what moves the bike that you will notice no movement during acceleration or have you pressed into the backrest in 1 second and slingshot the bike onto the highway.
It is always fun to see the cars moving to the other lane to free the right lane for me to come on only to notice that they do not pass the accelerating bike but that the bike has already full or near full highway speed (120kmh/75mph) and leaves them behind - even with 2 riders and a windscreen extension.
... and all this with a 400cc scooter
