Where it doesnt fully engage but I am having the opposite problem where I can not get my clutch to disengage. I have the top cable adjuster-adjusted so there is about a nickels (few mm) worth of play where i can pull the clutch lever that much before the cable really starts pulling. With it on the stand when i start it and put it in gear the wheel spins (enough that it is hard to stop the wheel and if i do the bike stalls) even with the clutch lever pulled all the way in and when riding it, the clutch doesnt actually seem to engage until the lever is almost all the way out. I adjusted the cable adjuster and unscrewed it as far as it can unscrew which was considerably further out then it is with the nickels worth of play and it changed nothing aside from the tightness of the lever/cable. On the stand the wheel still spins and stalls if i put enough force on it to stop the wheel and when riding the clutch still seems to engage and the same point (where the lever is almost all the way out). I think when I am on it and put it in gear, it doesnt stall becuase i keep the Rs up and my weight keeps the back tire from turning and slips the clutch?? Any comments, ideas, advice, etc. would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. ,well , the most obvious is a worn out clutch..BUT it can also be from the plates sticking together, or the springs are beyond their service limit. you can check and change all this at once.... 1) drain the oil 2) take off the clutch cover 3) loosen the screws that hold the pressure plate 4) check the springs (they should be a specific length , over time the length decreases) 5) take out pressure plate 6) check every plate , you can check thickness with a good caliper.( if the pads on the thick discs look worn or are not there the clutch is worn and you need a new set of plates) if they discs are still in good condition try cleaning them with a solvent like alcohol etc...but be carefull you do not use a aggressive solvent as the pads are made from cork and some solvents will damage the cork . If you change the pads the best thing to do is change the metal and the friction pads aswell as the springs. there's a trick to use a clutch that's worn down alot and that is to add another metal plate to the outside so your total stack height becomes higher , however this will only help you 1 or 2 heats after that the clutch is toast either way. hope thats FIXYA.,,,

Firstly please write in english ,is this a new word meachanic like it refers to a female mechanic of something or am i missing the plot ,because what was the original fault by the derivative meaning of the clutch was slipping or thought it was slipping now a proper trained mechanic would know if the clutch was slipping not just thought it might be slipping was the said vehicle test driven by the mechanic in question or just seen you as a cash cow and changed the clutch because its easy to do and a lot of mark up on the clutch unit without the labour charge involved.No take it back to the alledged mechanic and get him/her to sort it as i think the correct diagnosis wasnt applied to start with in this case.Perhaps a coil pack has gone done or a problem with the fuel whos knows without a drive of the vehicle to determine exactly whats wrong

How much oil do you use


Answer 1. Engine oil. On *** bikes its usually stamped on the side of the clutch cover. Or there is a glass window with a little - (dash) for the upper & lower levels. Or a dipstick on the clutch cover filler cap.
Answer 2. If your talking about a 2 stroke & want to mix oil/petrol I recommend you ask a Honda dealer what the correct mix is.
Answer 3. It would have helped if you had told us the Make, Model, engine size, year, type of engine 4 stroke or 2 stroke.

I have a 2006 yz250f and it seems like the clutch is slipping in 5th but its great in all the other gears


If it is going to slip, 5th is where you will notice it first, so it may need new plates, the alloy ones can wear as well as the fibre ones.
Make sure you are using four stroke motorcycle engine oil ( car oils can cause clutch slip due to friction modifiers)

A rough check of the clutch can be done by placing the front wheel against a solid wall, selecting 5, and a handfull of revs, drop the clutch, the engine should stop immediately, if it spins over even a couple of times with the clutch out, it is slipping and needs work.

Only way to check out the problem for sure is to drop the gearbox out and examine the clutch. Having gone this far in to the internal workings. It would make best sense to replace the clutch and pressure plates. Oil leaks can be repaired at the same time. No need to go to a main dealer because clutch replacement on a V6 is technically a very similar and no more difficult to replacement on any other Vectra
