Slave cylinder and line were replaced at a local dealership. Last year prior to the repair the clutch wouldn't disengage once the clutch had warmed up. It was working fine after the repair. Now along with the new problems there is a whining sound at every speed that I travel at. The sound had never been there before. During operation after the bike is moving the bike operates normally no slipping in the clutch no hesitation, operates as normal just doesn't sound normal. I'm thinking about replacing the clutch pack, basket, throwout bearing, and pressure plate bolts, but will all that really solve the problem. Especially since I don't really know whats going on. Sorry for the wordiness but any help would be appreciated,I had a similar symptom after installing a new Barnett clutch pack. The clutch worked fine when fully engaged, finding neutral was fine, etc. However, everynow and then, when taking off from a stop in first, the engagement point would change from the middle of the lever range to the end of the lever range. The first time it happened it caught me out and I almost fell over while trying to take off from an uphill stop and turn. Anyway, I took the clutch pack out, cleaned the friction plates with contact cleaner, cleaned the drive plates with a Scotchbrite pad, and put it back together. The problem has not reoccurred since.,,,

I can't find neutral when engine is running, what can I do?


If having troubles finding neutral when the engine is running. may be due to your clutch, not separating properly. That is because, the transmission still turning when the clutch is applied. The job of the clutch is to bring the transmission to a complete stop or almost stop so the gears can be shifted with ease. Otherwise, if there is a bind it will be really hard to shift (remember your wheels are not turning) when in motion the gears have a better chance to get in. So, I'll check my clutch lever adjustment, and cable free travel to start with. Otherwise the problem may reside within the clutch unit (friction dics,springs) etc. Hope this helps you!

I have a 1998 Suzuki bandit 1200.I'm having problems with the clutch.I think. I noticed when I would accelerate the rpm would jump 4 -5000 before the bike would respond . I let off throttle to stop rpm...


make sure there is 3mm play on the clutch lever , select 5th gear while engine is running and press the rear brake to stop you moving away ! with a little revs try and set off , if clutch is worn it will slip and not stall the engine ! if this happens then replace the clutch plates !

Hello. My 1995 dr 350 has a couple problems. First of all, the engine seems to get crazy hot from just minor trail riding. I know the head should get hot, but this just seems too hot. I don't want to fry...


for ur overheating problem it could be a clogged radiator or radiator hose. try pressure washing the radiator fins and maybie clean it out a bit and for the clutch it could be wear on ur clutch cable. let me know if this helped. thanks

2007 yz450f has a low rumble when clutch is out all the way


The bearing for the clutch outer drum may be worn. The adjustment on the handlebars is to set lever free play(about 1/2 inch) before the cable becomes tight and operates the clutch release inside. Make sure the outer drum cover is tight--check with the clutch lever to make sure the plate releases the disks and plates.

Having trouble with the clutch/gears


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my knowledge, the engine and the gear/transmission share the same oil in the crankcase. Clutch cable adjustment on most bikes could be done 2 ways:
  • after the clutch lever itself. There would be an adjustable end of the cable. It is locked in place by a coin like nut with grooved edge. This locked must be loosed before the cable end could be adjusted.
  • similarly at the bottom end of the cable that attaches to the clutch arm, the cable end would also have a thread end. There would be 2 lock nuts that must be loosened up.
You can experiment clutch play/slack to your personal preference. Soon as you are satisfied (number of tries clutching/engaging gears), then the locks could be tightened in place.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
