New procut basket and barnett plates. Had to file the barnett friction plate tangs they all slide but are a tight fit. All plates installed carefully per the Barnett instructions. Started the bike in neutral all fine shifted into 1st clutch in, I feel the bike want to creep forward although just slightly (I can hold it with my feet down). Can't get to neutral again with the clutch in until I shut the bike off. So, just before I go back in and pull a plate out to make the clutch pack smaller, i wondered whether anyone here has had this problem and whether if I ride it like this for a short while whether the clutch pack will settle in and fully disengage?,A too-high overall thickness of the plate stack will cause drag between plates when the clutch is disengaged making it difficult to select neutral when the bike is stopped. The last 2mm steel plate can be interchanged with a 1.5mm curved plate facing away from you if you want to adjust the stack to get the 38mm stack thickness, or if you want a more progressive, soft clutch engagement. A commonly-used substitution that adds an additional spring plate to the stack. Any of the steel 2mm plain plates can be exchanged with 1.5mm plain plates to reduce stack thickness or increase stack thickness as needed to achieve your desired overall height. You will see the need for this as friction plates wear, so keep your steel plates from pervious clutch replacements as spares to be used as height adjustments later. The 2mm and 1.5mm steel plates only need replacing if they’re scored or warped.,,,

Clutch adjustment # 1 to 4 what does it do


The 1 to 4 adjustment only changes how close the lever is to the bar. It will not change the "friction point" of the clutch.
If your bike has a cable operated clutch you can adjust the cable to change this. If it is a hydraulic clutch then bleed the system. I think though it is a sign of clutch wear.
There is a little screw on the inside of the clutch lever in between the 1 to 4 dial and the bar grip. You can try to adjust that carefully. It may be difficult at first as BMW loctites the screw.

If the clutch has a cable system and not a hydraulic clutch system, the cable is probably adjusted incorrectly. If the system is hydraulic(applies to cable systems also), the steels in the clutch pack are probably warped and should be changed. If the steels in the clutch pack are black and blue they arre probably warped and should be changed.

How do i change my clutch and plates


Harley changed their clutch in 1998 and I don't think they've changed it since. To change the plates in your clutch:

First, disconnect your battery, Remove the floorboard on the primary side and drain the oil out of the primary. Remove the outer primary cover. Remove the six screws in the clutch assembly and remove the clutch plates and steel plates. Soak your new clutch plates in oil overnight. Replace the old parts with the new parts in the exact same order. Rinstall the bolts using Loctite 242 (medium strength blue) and torque the bolts to about 20 foot pounds. Adjust the clutch according to factory specs and reinstall the outer primary cover. Add oil and reconnect the battery. Put the floor board back on and you're ready to ride.

Ride Safe.

Clutch not disengaging when clutch lever is depressed.


Assuming the clutch cable is intact and adjusted properly at the handlebars, the normal things that would cause the clutch to fail to disengage are extremely dirty oil or that synthetic lubricant has been used in the gearbox instead of 10w40 motor oil. Synthetics can cause the cork on the fiber clutch plates to swell. This causes the clutch to stay engaged. Extremely dirty oil can also cause the clutch to fail to disengage. If the oil is dirty, change it then ride for 30 minutes and change it again to flush out the grit. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Approximately how many miles before you need to change the clutch on an o7 cbr 1000?


You do not count how much mileage it has before changing clutch, it all depends how you use the gears and clutch...I had a cg125 and I had 40+ k miles and the clutch was absolutely fine...Just make sure you service it and change the oil when needed which will give it longer lifetime...Hope this helps.
