As far as I know, squealing or chirping is a problem with the clutch on the 07+ 400 but not the pre 07 models. The clutch on my 06 400 does not do it.

The stock clutch on my '03 would get a bit grabby every now and then, often in particularly humid weather (which get a lot of down here), and I found as have others on this forum that "abusing" it a little by clamping up the front brake, revving the engine and letting the clutch heat up a bit would take care of the issue for a while.

The final fix was to install an Adige SU-84 clutch, which I have now run for over 4500 miles with no grabbing, squeals, chirps or other problems of any sort--highly recommended...

ty cliff .more than likely i'll end up replacing the clutch 27k miles on what looks to be the original 1 is probably a good thing to do since ive changed the belt and weights i more than likely should have did the clutch to but there is always tomorrow just getting the right 1 for my 04 400

Don't forget to service that idler bearing!!! Simple job, and will save you the hassle of tearing it apart again to do it.

+1 My thought too...Has is been replaced? If not it is way over due!
A broken bearing cage will chirp forever until replaced.

You don't need to change the others unless you just want too. Usually just that one bearing goes bad. If you have ever change a wheel bearing or any bearing like that then you should not have any problem with it.

Yes, it is--Adige is the aftermarket product division of Adler Spa. Spa is the abbreviation for Società per azioni, meaning "joint stock company" in English...
