If the clutch lever is high (or engages at almost full release) then there is two options. 1, adjust the screw on the the lever itself, loosen the lock nut and turn in to adjust. 2, your clutch is worn beyond adjustment, replace clutch pak

2001 rancher 350trx atv. Runs good but no take off power. Give all the gas it hardly goes but when it gets up to speed its pretty fast. Why no take off power on 350cc honda


Could be a handful of things; 2 that you could check and let me know what the outcome is will narrow it down -

1. When was the last clutch replacement done on the bike if any? When your clutch starts to go - one of the symptoms is loss of power at take off.

Here's something you can do and I believe the 350 had a basket as well as a centrifugal clutch if you have an adjustment - there should be a nut on a stud on the front cover of the engine. Front Housing is what it's called. You can't miss the stud - it's on the engine cover that faces forward. That's your clutch adjustment. Hold the stud stationary and loosen the nut - should be a 10 or 12mm - once the nut is backed off - loosen the stud - then go counter clockwise slowly until you start to feel resistance - once you feel resistance - go forward about a 1/4 turn.

That's a standard clutch adjustment for multiple makes & models especially the Foreman, etc. I've got a 2000 TRX450 and that's the clutch adjustment*. If this atv has the hondamatic - or no clutch adjustment stud/nut - I'd pull that front cover off and check the tolerance on your centrifugal clutch.

2. - every 6 months or 500 hours they recommend you check and adjust your valves as needed. No one does it and the valves get out of whack. What could possibly be happening - your valves need adjustment - when you start the bike and until it's really warmed up performance will suffer. Once they bike warms up, heat makes everything expand - and if you're on that threshold - you'll run terrible at first/better as the valves warm up. You'll see this play out everytime you get on it and it hasn't been running in 20 hours.

Could be a carb issue as well, your idle and slow jets could be getting clogged up. Or your pilot screw's o-ring is shot and you're drawing too much air at idle/slow speeds and evens out under demand. Once that happens - you'll probably idle okay/nothing great - putting around will be about the same - but when you're on full throttle your carb pulls from a different jet. Each jet has a job - idle jet, slow jet, fast jet, - if you haven't cleaned the inside of that carb out in awhile - now is the time to do it - if nothing else, you'll have a clean carb and you'll have that knocked off your list.

These aren't the only causes by far - there's a flow chart attached/it's from an 04 TRX400 - Same rules apply. I didn't touch on electrical - but if you check on the things above/need any tips going through the flow chart, etc. feel free to shoot me a message. Glad to help if possible.

How do i tighten the clutch or replace


you cannot tighten a clutch as it is a spring loaded operation
I suggest that the clutch cable may be faulty ( jammed up) and not al;lowing the clutch to fully engage
try adjusting the cable

I just put new clutches in 85 honda 250 four trax y are thay steeel sliping


Sometimes you need to adjust your clutch cable. as the disks wear out you have to tighten it to get it to disengage. if the cable is adjusted too tight then it will slip because it is not taking all the pressure off the disks so they can fully grab. That is where i would start

Yamaha 2005 raptor 80- clutch not engaging


ever put a clutch in? 100% sure you have the discs in right? It could very well be that it is adjusted too tight and won't release the clutch. Usually happens when you go from a bad bad over adjusted clutch to a nice new one.

Clutch slipping on new bike so has no traction on start. Brand new Bike. Peter


Hi


Being in proper adjustment ensures that your clutch is FULLY disengaging when you pull the lever and is fully engaging when you release the lever. This will make sure that it will not slip under acceleration or drag when the lever is in. It will also prolong the life of the clutch, making it last longer.
Also note, normally there is an adjustment at the clutch itself AND an adjustment of the cable to ensure proper free-play on the cable, this is for making sure there is no tension or pressure being applied to the clutch with the lever fully released.

Here is how you can fix your clutch:-

Drain the oil out of the 4-wheeler. This is done by unscrewing the drain plug under the engine. If you have a skid plate obstructing the plug, remove it first. Remove the clutch cover with a socket and ratchet. Inspect the gasket and replace if it is worn, cut or ripped.

Remove the pressure plate by loosening the bolts with a socket and ratchet. Loosen in a crisscross pattern so that the pressure plate comes off easily and won't bind. There are springs behind the bolts, so be careful not to loosen them. When removing the pressure plate be aware of the lifter behind it and make sure you don't lose it. Remove the friction plates from inside the clutch compartment. Remove the jutter springs and make a note of how they are positioned. This will make the reinstall process easier.

Reverse the steps to reinstall. When installing the bolts on the pressure plate and the clutch cover, consult your service manual for the right torque pressure.
