2mm or 4mm? It gets very little milage per yearGet the 4 mm spline and you'll get bonded plates to suit with heaps better wear of the splines and hence a less grabby long term action.,

1992 gt 750 starter clutch total rebuild with new parts still slipping

I had the starter clutch out on my '81 '7 750 LTD twice. The first time I rebuilt and it lasted 6 months. The second time I rebuilt there was no improvement. I bought a used one on e-bay, installed it and it works like a charm.

I own a 1981 suzuki gs 850. the bikes clutch cable broke the other day as i rolled up to a light and shifted it into neutral. i put a new cable on the bike and when i pull the clutch and shift into 1st...

Yes.Because your old cable was old,it had stretched.New cable has been put on and the adjustment of it is wrong.It needs to be readjusted.If the bike sat around for a long time after the cable broke(and you said it did not) then a different problem may exist.Get the clutch readjusted and all should be good.Hope this helps

Just changed my gear box oil on my aprilia rs 125 2000 model and my clutch is sleeping how do i fix this and how much will it cocst thanks josh

i sure hope you didn't use car oil but bought motorcycle oil. The clutch is a wet-type system that uses engine oil to keep it cool. Motorcycle oil is formulated differently than car oil, which has detergents in it to add lubrication and engine life that will cause a motorcycle's clutch to slip. A new clutch is both inexpensive and easy to replace. When you buy a new clutch, don't forget the clutch cover gasket. i recommend EBC clutches.
1. Set up a little pan with MOTORCYCLE oil in it and place the new clutch discs and pressure plates in it so that they get well-covered with clean oil.
2. Drain the oil, remove the clutch cover and remove the bolts on the cover of the clutch basket.
3. Remove the old clutch parts and make sure you pay attention to what the last part is (disc or pressure plate).
4. Install the new clutch, starting with the last part you removed and alternate between the discs and pressure plates until you run out.
5. Reinstall the clutch basket's cover plate and re-torque the bolts to the specified setting, using a cross-sequence like you would on a wheel.
6. Clean all the old gasket off, install the clutch cove and new gasket and fill up your engine with oil.
7. Ride away happy because you just changed your first clutch!

Hope this helps,

My clutch doesnt work

What service work has been done in the last month? Any oil changes? Added oil to the gearbox? Clutch worked on? New cables? Was this a sudden overnight thing or has it been getting worse and worse and now the clutch won't disengage the motor at all? Below is a parts diagram of your clutch. Post a comment to get back to me. I am sure I can get you back on the road.

Kill switch?

I would check the obvious stuff first, like the kill switch. Maybe the clutch damaged the safety switch that is operated by the clutch. But I would think that you could still start it in nuetral if that were the case. hmmmm........ There is also a safety kill switch on the kickstand that may have been damaged. It should not be any kind of major problem from just a little fall. Good luck

850 t3 clutch

First they all do this to a certain degree even my Centauro! I had my Centauro serviced when it got as bad as you say yours is and they said I should go after the person that last worked on my transmission because he only put in 8 of the required 10 clutch plate springs. I said it came that way from the factory since I bought it as new in 2002 right out of the crate! Still cost me $600. Since then I have found out that the adjustment it self (the one you can make at the handlebar or down at the transmission end of the cable) is not all their is too it. Guzziology in chapter 9 under clutch adjustment sez: normal clutch wear can on most models, eventually back the clutch arm up against something solid so that even with a properly adjusted cable the clutch is subject to excessive wear and slippage. Many a happy customer that thought a new clutch was needed has left our shop after a simple adjustment of the arm's position. This sounds like what you are experiencing. Take pictures when you have this corrected, use a ruler to give perspective to the adjustment and share your results with us. All I have is the text as an example!,,,
