    Anyone ever had this?

    You buy a new clutch, get it fitted, leave the garage and it slips, and after a bed-in period it sorts itself out? I've spoke to one member on here who this happened to but just seeing who else?

    Apparently the garage I've been dealing with said some clutches can take up to 800 miles to bed in? And others say it doesn't need bedding in?

    I've got a second hand Courtenay competition clutch thats done 102 miles now that Courtenay don't really want back.

    The new ones fine, get a slight slip at 4000 rm in 4th and 5th then it grips again, been told this will go the more I drive it.
