I just reciently bought a 98 monster 900 i'm new to ducatis and this is my first bike besides countless dirt bikes. anyways i have had it for about 3 months and it has been running fine till about 2 days ago when i move off from a complete stop the bike shakes and stutters and almost stalls everytime but when i actually get it moving it still shifts fine but its performance over all has been sluggish after i get it going. im guessing the clutch is grabbing a little bit then slipping and thats whats causeing it to act like this? or i could be completely off. does this sound familar to anyone? thanks in advanceIt may be a lean burn condition with the engine or maybe the friction plates have worn some deep grooves into the clutch basket, or maybe some of your steel plates in the clutch pack are corroded. Maybe some of each. I had 2 out of 3 of the above with my S4 but installed a new clutch basket, clutch pack, pressure plate, and spider retainer and just enrichened the fueling today and set the idle at 1200rpm. All much better.,,,

Honda nifty bfifty clutch slip, how to adjust or is it oil filled centrifugal clutch, if so how do u fill


Hello David?
Motorcycles have what is called wet clutches. The clutch is bathed in the engine oil(crankcase oil ) To ck the adjustment, squeeze the clutch lever enough to take up any slack. There should be at least 1/4 in freeplay. If no free play the clutch will slip. Too much free play and the clutch won't dis-engage.after verifying free play, Take this part with serious thought. Wet clutches do not like motor oil. It causes the clutch to slip. So, If you have changed oil or have added any and it was not motorcycle engine oil, It is more than likely your problem. You will need to drain the oil and filter and put the right type into the engine. The clutch has np separate oil supply. Lever adjustment should be at the clutch lever clamp. Now what is this 50/50? Good Luck-

Hi,I have a 2003 deuce done 11000 mls, rode it today felt asthough the clutch cable broke (no clutch) ,after further inspection clutch cable seams to be alright connected both ends,haven't pulled side...


Well, you only need the clutch to release, and that cannot be major. Inspect the cable completely, does it move at the trans end when you pulll it. What is inside is essentially a fork on a release bearing, a rod, and the clutch spring plate.

How do I determine if my clutch is bad or it is the presure plate


This is strange. I've seen clutches drag and I've seen them slip but never both. If I had to take a guess, and that's exactly what this is, I'd guess that it was either something with the clutch cable or the release mechanism on the right side of the tranny. Evo clutches are very good clutches as compared to the earlier ones.

Good Luck

sounds like you need a clutch. Yes the friction plates should move a bit when you pull your clutch lever in that is how the clutch works what oil are you running in you tranny and have you tried adjusting the clutch cable? When you had your clutch apart what did the friction plates look like was there much meat left on them?

What kind of parts are insde the chain sprket cover where the cluth line enters the case . My cluth line is tight not engageing. I looked at pictures on the ent apartently im missing like a a piece of...


This is inside the casing cover. Just a lever for the clutch cable to connect to, a spring, The clutch release mechanism, a seal and a clutch push rod. The clutch release has a threaded screw for adjusting the clutch and a locking nut for the screw. The only other thing is a metal bracket.

What exactly is the problem? The lever is hard to pull? The clutch won't engage to make the bike go forward? The clutch will not dis-engage, the motor will not stop driving the bike forward? What?

Adjust Motorcycle Clutch Cable


Usually there are 2 adjustment points. One at the clutch lever, and one on the clutch pull on the crankcase. Follow the cable from the handlebars to the engine, there should be an adjust bolt or two. The adjustment at the handlebar lever is usually a screw with a thumbwheel lock nut. Depending on what you are trying to adjust, dictates which one you will use and in what direction it will go. If the clutch is slipping, use the thumbwheel adjuster. Loosen it, back the screw out 2-3 turns, tighten. and check you clutch. if this one is all the way out, go to the crankcase, loosen the bolt on the richt side of the bracket first, then loosen the left one, one turn at a time, checing the clutch. once it's where you want it. tighten the right bolt only. You can do this with a set of open end or box wrenches. An adjustable wrench works in a pinch.
