my new clutch on the cx500 slips. It did work with mild slips then after a few runs around the block it wont even make it up the hill WHAT IS WRONG! How tight should the four bolts that hold the springs and roller bearing be.

tAKE A LOOK AT YOUR CLUTCH CABLE free play, your clutch lever should have 10-20mm 0f travel, play. It may need adjustment at the lever, or, if more is needed, then it is adjusted at the clutch cover area where the clutch cable enters the clutch basket.

Which oil are you using? "Energy saving" oils may let the clutch slip.

Are the clutch parts in the proper order, the pressure springs up to spec?

The 4 bolts are torqued to 10 ftlbs or so if I remember, do not break them.
