I apologize if this thread is in the wrong place.

I have noticed that, for the first few minutes of my run, the slipper clutch seems very loose. Just as I think I should tighten it, it always seems to tighten up on me. Are the slipper pads heating up, therefore causing more friction, and giving the slipper a tighter feel? It doesn't bother me, I'm just curious. I actually think it's kind of cool! What do you guys think?

I think your pads are glazed over, you might wanna replace them, they're cheap.

It could be heat expanding the parts but I cant say for sure.

Personally, Id just tighten it properly so it is the same cold or hot and will not wear as fast nor generate as much heat.

If the pads are glazed scuff them and the plate they slip on with some fine grit sand paper or emery paper.

I think that after a few minutes your batteries have drained a bit and don't have the punch to make the slipper clutch slip as much.
