SOURCE: clutch slipping in second gear only

Wave washer on the face of the clutch basket may have lost its tension, clutch friction plates may be wearing thin as she's an old girl. Some automotive (car) oils not specifically designed for wet clutches when used in a bike will cause the clutch to slip as they are designed to leave a deposit on friction areas. This will require a thorough flush and a few oil changes in quick succession.
Check the return function of the clutch release arm on the crankcase, they can bunch up the rubber shroud and not return fully. Good luck and Cheers.

Is the oil for the Boulevard semi Synthetic or full Synthetic


Either oil will work, check your owners manual, it may say what came with it. If in doubt use full synthetic. You can't go wrong in doing that.

Why does my RM125 not drive? i start her up pull back clutch leaver and slip it into gear i loose the hand its goes forwards very slowly instead of pulling off normal? whats wrong?


does it fell like its going into gear? if yes,when you let the clutch out does try to move?.This would indicate the clutch was worn out,if it won't go into gear it would mean the cable or clutch were out of adjustment.

Can't get the clutch on a suzuki 800 intruder to hold pressure


Oil should be 10W40 SF or SG grade. Anything else will cause the clutch to slip. There must be freeplay on the clutch cable (0.4-0.6in). Adjust handle bar clutch lever screw all the way out then adjust at gearbox end and revert to handle bar adjustment for fine adjustments. If this does not solve the problem take the clutch apart and measure driven plate thickness (3.12in minimum for the 1st plate and 2.62in minimum for the others)
Measure clutch spring free length. There are 2 sets (4 springs each). 0.97in minimum and 0.92in minimum respectively.
A slipping clutch is caused by incorrect friction, that is incorrect oil or insufficient pressure. Pressure is supplied by the springs on the discs and driven plates.
If the discs, driven plates or bucket is worn it will cause slippage.
If you pull in the clutch and it disengages but starts to re- engage after a short period you will need to replace the clutch master cylinder seals.

Everytime i pull the clutch in on my suuki rm 125 and go to put it into first gear it just stalls as if i dont have the clutch pulled in can you help


You may simply just need to adjust your clutch cable. Make sure it feels like your pulling on something, there should be some resistance. Since you'll be adjusting it while the plates are cold you need to leave some free play in the lever or when your clutch pack gets hot it will start slipping and you'll end up with a smoked clutch. What I mean is grab the lever and pull it in until you start feeling resistance and then adjust it our until there is maybe a quarter inch of free play. Hope it helps. If its not that then you've got some internal problems with your plates and fibers not separating correctly.

Why does my bike start on warm days but not on cold ones?I already replaced the starter


are you running 20w50 oil? if yes, probably full synthetic. try running a standard 10w40 oil or something not as heavy as what your using. heavy oil in combination with cooler weather makes for heavier oil, harder for your starter to turn the gears through it. warmer days, gears move easier.

Top gear slips


The only way for slippage is through the clutch. Have you or a previous owner put synthetic oil or oil with "special" additives into the gearbox? If so, try an oil change using 10w40 motor oil. If slippage is still a problem then get a set of new fiber friction plates (not the metal pressure plates). The metal pressure plates will not be harmed by the bad oils.

If the front and rear sprocket are not stock, (as in the front is larger than stock or the rear sprocket is smaller than stock), get back to the stock gearing.

1997 VULCAN CLASSIC WITH NEW CLUTCH SEEMS TO SLIP IN ANY GEAR


Any special oils or lubricants in the gearbox? Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. If in a hot area like Texas or New Mexico go with 20w50.

be7bdb4.gif If the clutch still slips then go to a different mechanic and have him adjust the clutch. The first guy doesn't know what he is talking about.

Yz 125 2001 stays in gear when clutch pulled in


Lose the Honda transmission oil. It may have swollen the cork on the friction plates. Go with 10w40 in the gearbox. Any major brand; Mobil, Shell, Quaker State, Pennzoil, etc.. Try the new oil and give the cork a week to shrink back down > if they will. You may need to put in a new set of plates.
