With all that damage to the clutch fiber disks, it makes me wonder what oil was used.

with it being a trike,
I am wondering if previous owners were using a heavy throttle while engaging the clutch, and not allowing the engine to gradually get the bike up to speed?

It's a 1996 golgi g. When I bought it, it had 17000 miles on it. The man I bought it from was in his 70,s . He told me it was his first bike and he never ran it that much. He had it over 20 years. The carburetors were all tarnished and gummed up. I kept running g seafoam it it to get to clean the carburetors cleaned out. I run pennzoil 10w 30 on it. That's what I run in my 1987 goldwing and never have touched the rngi e except 2 changes of spark plugs. It has 192000 on it. Still running g strong. It's tricked out with a motor trike kit and stl runs smooth

By chance is the oil rated for use with a 'wet clutch'?

So you put 170,000 miles on the original clutch! I would say that is pretty good mileage for a trike clutch. I don't own one but that kind of mileage on any clutch is impressive.

Even if it is not it won't cause the clutch to wear out, it would just make it slip because of the anti friction additives.

And if you subtract that from the 192K on his 1200 you actually get 175k miles. But one has nothing to do with the other . Except he is happy with SeaFoam and Pennzoil and Goldwings .
