Hi, Sounds the clutch assembly rather than the tranny, but it could be in the backlash gears. There have been several recalls on this bike and this was one of the issues. Make sure the recall issues have been addressed. I would take this bike to a dealer for a through inspection and have them give you in writing what is wrong with it. Good Luck!

Yes you are correct, twice. Be easy and maybe an extra set of hands when taking the tank off. I always buy a service manual when I purchase a new project. I would suggest doing the same. It just gives you good idea's about the what and where. The one for the Victory V92 isn't so great for the how just basic pictures and some details. Try going to M&M leather and custom cycle's web site and look at the parts fische for a free view under your tank. When you begin to lift the tank off take care with the fuel connection. That plastic fitting is 10yrs old and likely prone to snapping if pulled on the wrong way. It has a push tab on it that is silver. Push and lightly grasp the fitting pulling them apart as straight as possible. The one just under the seat is even more brittle so be carefull. It is a $40.00 tee that will break easily. Done it.

SOURCE: i own a 2001 victory v92c. do i check the oil with

the bike needs to be standing up straight. if you check the oil w/ the bike on the stand it will show that the oil is low and you will tend to over fill. it is better to be a little low verses overfull. If the bike is overfilled it could damage the seals, rings or valves.

Check the plug on the lower left frame. It's mounted in such a way the it can get water down in the connection after washing.

It could have condensation built-up, You might want to unplug and spray with WD 40.

How do i adjust the clutch on my 2004 Harley Davidson Heritage Softail

Try this:

Loosen clutch cable all the way (so you don't get a false setting).
Loosen clutch push rod adjuster (in center of pressure plate).
Turn adjuster in until it JUST touches.
Back off 1/2 to 1 turn and tighten locknut.

Be careful when tightening locknut that the adjuster doesn't turn also, decreasing play.

Readjust clutch cable, leaving 1/16" to 1/8" slack.

I have to let my clutch handle all the way out before it catches.I installed new clutch and pressure plates, and adjusted it according to the manual, but same problem

You haven't adjusted it correctly. You must adjust the clutch in the exact sequence that the manual tells you to. A lot of people don't like the idea of having to loosen the clutch cable but it has to be done. Find the cable adjuster and loosen the lock nut. Turn the adjuster barrel inwards and get a LOT of slack in the cable. Then, remove the derby cover. You'll see the clutch assembly with the adjuster screw and locknut in the center. Loosen the locknut and turn the screw outwards until it's loose. Turn it back inwards until you feel a resistance. Do not force the screw and you may have to turn it back out and then back in several times until you get the feel of what you're doing. Once you feel the resistance, back the screw back out 1/2 turn and lock the lock nut down. Replace the derby cover. Then adjust the cable adjuster barrel back out until you have about an 1/8" free play in the cable. This should adjust your clutch to a more acceptable engagement point. Since your clutch discs are new, be prepared to adjust your clutch several more times as the plates "seat in".

Good Luck

I need to know the exact specifications to the clutch pushrod on a 93 katana 750

There's no exact spec cause you set the clutch to the way you like it. With the clutch cable adjusted loose. ( the cable adjuster at the clutch handle backed up so thiers alot of free play at the handle). Lossen the lock nut at the clutch pushrod and screw in the adjuster screw till it tightens up. If the handle losses all of the freeplay them back up the cable adjustment even more You may find another adjuster wher the cable enters the engine case. Reconizing the only reason you need to do this is because your putting on a new cable or have installed a new clutch, If you did'nt do any of these repairs the problem that your trying to correct may be a sticking and binding cable. This is a common problem and you pull in the clutch and it's hard to do and you let the clutch out and it slips and engages badly,, With the cable removed ( or loosened up good) It should move very easily in the housing. if it doesn't remove it and move it back an forth all the way and see if it'll loosen up putting it in solvent or rust buster working it back and forth with a good cable lube in it till it works real smooth with little or no resistance. If you can't getr it to work smoothly you need a new cable. with the cable installed loosly turn the screw in till it tightens up and then pull the clutch handle. if the cable is still loose tighten it up till theiers just a little free play ( almost none) This adjusts the cable. Then back out the clutch rod screw trying the handle as you turn the screw till you get a noticeable amount of freeplay at the handle. ( 1/4-1/2 inch) . once completed put the bike in gear and with the bike off and in gear pull the cluch in and rolol the bike slowly letting the cluch out to see where it engages. if it seems good start it up and if it feels good and does'nt grind the gears and starts moving at a reasonable space off the grip, lock all the adjustments and take it for a ride. If the cable acts up any get a new one.

1971 CB 350 clutch is VERY low (close) - How do I adjust it?

On the left side sprocket cover is a nut and screw , if you loosen the nut you can turn the screw you can adjust the clutch. You will want to loosen all your cable adjustments first so you have the adjustments later when you need them again. If this does not work, take the cover off and inspect the pieces for damage ,missing bearings, cracked parts,bent shaft,etc. If you pull the shaft out of the motor be careful there is a small bearing that will usually fall out of the motor after you have left the room if the bike is on its side stand.

How do I adjust the clutch on a 1981 Suzuki

Adjust clutch cable and "lifting mechanism",,, Loosen locknut on the adjuster SCREW ( gain access by removing the "plug" loctaed the furtherest to rear on left hand side of crank case, looks like a "cap" with a slot in it) and rotate screw IN untile you feel it lightly touch end of turn screw OUT 1/4 to 1/2 turn , then tighten the lock nut...... then use two wrenches to loosen the locking nuts on clutch cable, adjust so there is 4mm / 0.16 inches of free play when you slightly pull the clutch lever ..the measurement is placed at the gap of clutch handle and lever base where you see the cable attached into the handle....tis slight free play is to make sure the clutch is not "tight" engaged all the time.....when you lightly pull on lever watch the adjusting lock screw it will slightly rise...if you can not see it then place one finger on it as you pull lever. ck out pg 20 of manual at for clutch adjust, and pg 58 for cam chain adjust, and pg 78 to see blowup pic of clutch and adjuster

2001 frontier tailgate won't open

Remove the inner pannel. Then move the handle the connecting rod from the handle to the lock will move.Then pull or push the connecting rod helping the handle. When you get it open move the handle again if it moves freely then most likely the catch needs adjusting to adjust loosen the screws aroung the catch on the rear pannel move the catch out a little try closing the tailgate if it takes undue force to close then repeat moving the catch out until it is easy to shut simple rule is if it is hard to close then it will be hard to open! Leave the inner pannel off until you can easily open the tailgate with the handle as you may have to give the handle a helping hand to open until you have finished adjusting.

How do you adjust the clutch. Mine doesn't completely disengage when I shift gears. Too much play in the clutch handle.

You need to adjust the clutch cable adjustment for the clutch handle, THEN adjust the clutch itself.

1.First go to the clutch cable. Halfway down the cable is a rubber boot. Pull the rubber boot up the cable, (Or down. Pull it. Do NOT push), until it clears the adjustment. (The adjustment is a hex shaped piece, that is made of two parts. It's called a Barrel)
Use a 9/16 inch open end wrench, and a 1/2 inch open end wrench. Loosen the lock nut until you have around 1/16th to 1/8th of an inch clearance, of slack in the handle.
(Where the clutch lever, touches the clutch lever mount on the handlebars)

2.Now open the derby cover.
(The round cover on the back of your primary cover. Not to insult your intelligence. This ->
<-shows a custom primary inner, and outer cover. The derby cover is the round cover all the way to the right, on this custom primary cover. You can click on the photo to enlarge)

You will then see a single threaded stud, (Adjuster screw), in the middle of the clutch pressure plate.
This adjuster screw has a nut on it, to lock the screw from turning. (Jam nut)
Hold the stud end,(adjuster screw). from turning with a large flat tip screwdriver,
(May have changed to a small square end, that you use an open end wrench on), loosen the jam nut with an open end wrench.

Turn the adjuster screw in, until there is 1/8th inch slack of the clutch lever, to the clutch lever mount.
(The clutch lever mount is the part that attaches to the handlebars. The clutch lever is the part you squeeze in with your hand. The slack is the small space in-between the clutch lever, where it touches the clutch lever mount)

Now turn the adjuster screw out 1/2 turn. Tighten the jam nut. (Make sure you hold the adjuster screw in that place you set, as you tighten the jam nut. DON'T let the adjuster screw turn as you tighten the jam nut!)

3.Now tighten the lock nut, (Jam nut), on the adjustment barrel for the clutch cable. You should grease the threads of this adjustment barrel to prevent corrosion in the future. Pull the rubber boot back into place.

4.Replace the derby cover gasket as these will leak like a sieve. Replacing this gasket is cheap insurance. Install the derby cover, tighten the derby cover screws evenly. (Go to one screw, tighten until it touches. Then go to another screw, and do the same. After all three are touching, snug them down one turn at a time, going from screw to screw)

This is a thin cover. If you don't tighten the screws evenly, you can cause this thin cover to warp, and be the cause of a constant annoying oil drip.

Adjustment for the clatch

Hi I understood the correct adjustment for the clutch is as follows-slacken off the adjustment at the handle bars first then remove the plastic plug slacken the locknut and screw the screw in until contact is made then back off the screw 1/8 of a turn (what the ccm handbook says) the rotax engine manual says 3/4 of a turn but I think that is excessive. Then using the box spanner supplied in the ccm toolkit, carefully tighten the locknut ensuring the screw does not move with a screw driver. Re-adjust at the handlebar(2-3mm of slack). Also ensure there is the correct amount of oil, I checked mine cold after an oil change and I had way too much causing the clutch to drag when warming up. The clutch will tend to slip if the adjustment screw is in too far and there is no free play at the lever. Steve.,,,
