I believe those levers are interchangeable with all coffin style master cylinders from at least 1987 through 1999 and they interchange with the remote reservoirs of the 2000-2002 ST bikes.......I know for a fact that the levers from the 1998 ST2 are interchangeable with the 1987 Paso 750 and the 2002 ST2 master cylinders.

How do I adjust the clutch?

loosen adjuster on clutch cable if thats your setup so lever has tons of freeplay acess the clutch adjusting screw and jam nut loosen jam nut some models have reverse threads turn in adjusting screw until it bottoms out on clutch pack then back it out one full turn then secure jam nut while holding adjusting screw in its set position replace covers replace any lost oil then go back to cluth cable adjuster extend it so while you are pulling slightly on cable with one hand check lever freeplay with the other you want about 1/8" of free play between lever and bracket then tighten its jam nut. this is also a great time to lube said cable i like the liquid graphite my self and a tad of grease or antisieze on the last inch or of the steel braided portion that comes out of the cable housing and into the lever since this is where they break 99% of the time good luck

Hi. I have a 98 ST2 and just replaced the standard clutch springs with aftermarket. Tensioned them to 5 lb ft and the clutch won't go into gear. Just spins as if it still in neutral.

Is the clutch working correctly are the plates compressed. Without operating the clutch lever the clutch should be fully lock the center hub to the outside cage. Does the clutch front plate move when you squeeze the lever? If not I would suggest the springs are: - a) too long, b) not correct for your model or c) have too much tension in them and so holding the clutch open. I know they cost more but I would get OEM springs.
Hope this helps

My 1989 FZR 600 will not change into neutral or 2nd gear when the engine is running, but when you turn the engine off it will select neutral with no problem. The clutch adjustment on the lever is on its...

This problem normally only occurs when the clutch cable needs to be shortened to very littleplay at the lever.If you've lots of free travel in the lever,clutch pack is too tight and shift is hard.I'm sure you know that.Anyway,since is still a problem,I'd be checking the throut at clutch pack before replacing the clutch.Throught lever could be bent or out of position,or just worn out from playing hard.You know how we are.

After replacing my clutch lever and adjusting the clutch cable at the adjustment location halfway down my cable, I am having problems downshifting, but only from 3rd and down... this makes it hard to make...

If the clutch was adjusted correctly it sounds like your throw out bearing could be going bad. Or you might have an issue with the clutch plates themselves. If you set the lever too tight you could have smoked the clutch plates. of course the same thing could happen with the adjustment being too loose. It almost sounds like it might be too loose. If you pull the cable out of the perch it should only come out of the perch the thickness of a quarter . any more and it's too loose and can't dis engage which would give you a hard to get into gear.

I have a broken clutch bearing and icant find the spare

  1. Clutch Lever
    • As the clutch lever is operated over time, it gradually loses its grip on the clutch cable, weakening the clutch lever action until it barely moves the clutch plates. Maintain the clutch lever by ensuring the free play at the lever meets the specifications of the motorcycle's user manual, in which you will also find instructions on how to make this adjustment.
    Clutch Cable
    • Unlike the gradual onset of a clutch lever problem, the somewhat uncommon failure of a clutch cable is instantaneous. With little warning, the clutch lever goes completely slack and the clutch will be inoperable. Keeping a clutch cable well lubricated can prevent failure. However, in the event of a cable failure, a registered dealer should fit a replacement.

    Clutch Plates
    • Problems with the clutch mechanism itself normally manifest themselves in the gear change rather than in the applying and releasing of the clutch lever. Noise, chattering or slipping can be the result of misaligned or warped plates, leaks in hydraulic cables or bearings. Although more serious, if recognized early, these problems will be relatively inexpensive to repair.

I dont know if my clutch is bad or if my clutch chord is bad in my 1983 suzuki GS 650 L

I am assuming that the engine races on up-shifts rather than getting a good, positive clutch hook-up, so checking the following items would be a good place to start. Since the GS650 uses a rack and pinion style release, it has no true clutch "adjustment" except for cable and linkage play. First check that there is adequate free-play in the lever and cable- does clutch tension pull the lever hard against the perch bracket or is there some free-play? If there is play, also check that the lever pivots freely in the perch, since corrosion can often cause the lever to bind. If this checks out, you will need to determine if the release cable is binding. You will need to spin the cable adjuster on the lever perch inward to add as much play as possible, then disconnect the cable at both ends. Removing the lever pivot bolt is often the easiest method. Once both ends are disconnected, you should be able to pull the cable back and forth in the sheathing quite easily. If not, I recommend lubrication first (Use a commercially available cable lubricating tool from Bike Bandit- they are inexpensive and last a lifetime) or replacement if it is binding/dragging. I make it a practice to lubricate new cables prior to installation as well, since you will find operation and longevity improved. Last but not least, check the actuator lever on the clutch cover to insure that it rotates freely in the cover. Reinstall the cable and adjust, making sure that there is play. If this doesn't cure your clutch slippage issue, it will be time to replace your clutch.

No clutch when you pull the clutch lever started getting worse tried adjusting lever stil gettin worse checked mineral clutch oil hardly anything in resorvoir is my clutch on the way out?

It could be. First thing to do is look for leaks, if no leaks? Then refill and look for leaks while you
are clutching the lever. If no leaks? proceed to adjustment . Try lever adjust first, and then go to
your lower case adjustment, bleed system. You should have a clutch . You may have to repeat
the steps until you get it right . If no clutch after that you will need to replace clutch plate's . I
hope this helps you, and good luck .

Check them few things you will most likely find its the clutch plates need replacing.

Why does my motorcycle stall when I change from neutral to first even with the clutch fully engaged?

This usually means the clutch is going bad or is bad. Does it seem to shift hard when you are normal shifting? You should be able to shift with the lever pulled 3/4 of the way back with no surging or hard shift. I would start with replacing the clutch or having it checked out.
