Or at very low speed. The only way around it is to accelerate very slowly for a bit. After reading the forums I tried... -rolling the bike backward about 3' and examine the belt--the belt stays right at the top of the pulley. -examining the clutch--doesn't appear to be any rubber particles (shouldn't be as it was just replaced!) Also the drive belt is new. The only other thing to comment on is while I assumed I was buying a new clutch the red writing on the clutch indicates it is a rebuilt. That's all the info I have--any ideas?? Thanks! ,Slipping won't work for long. We have never seen slipping when all belt friction surfaces are clean. The belt should be totally dry and clean. The metal surfaces of both clutches can be cleaned with brake cleaner to remove any lubricants or oils that may be on them. Typically real slipping will destroy a belt almost instantly.,,,

    99 rm 250 rides and runs great but when you shift into 3rd gear it does not grab it physically goes into gear but seems to slip! Some say bad clutch plates others say bad gear no idea any suggestions??


    Hi, it sounds like your clutch friction plates have either worn out or, someone has put the wrong oil in it, some car oils make the clutch slip in high gears.

    Clutch plate problem in my bajaj discover 125cc. Used to replace clutch plat twice in a month. Kindly suggest me


    You are too rough on your motorcycle. Make sure you are in proper gear, your clutch is properly adjusted to begin with, dont ride the clutch. If you are in competition ... well this is the price of competition.

    Hello. My 1995 dr 350 has a couple problems. First of all, the engine seems to get crazy hot from just minor trail riding. I know the head should get hot, but this just seems too hot. I don't want to fry...


    for ur overheating problem it could be a clogged radiator or radiator hose. try pressure washing the radiator fins and maybie clean it out a bit and for the clutch it could be wear on ur clutch cable. let me know if this helped. thanks

    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.

    Rattle and slippage when engaging clutch, only when hot after a ling ride. does not rattle or slip at all when clutch is fully engaged.


    Clutch plates may be worn. You would have to pull the side cover to inspect them. Honda clutch's always rattle at an idle when in neutral. If you just pull in the clutch lever the rattle will go away. Let the lever out and it will rattle again. As for the slippage, if your clutch cable is binding at all it will keep the clutch from fully engaging when you release the handle. This will cause the clutch to slip for a second or two until the cable fully releases from the bind. Any resistance in the cable and you should replace it.

    Recently purchased a '97 Vulcan 1500 C. Had 11,730 miles on it. After riding about 1,000 miles, the clutch is begining to slip when cold. Seems ok after riding for about an hour. It also clunks, or grinds...


    I don't think your clutch is bad, if it doesn't slip when hot. I would be blaming the pull on the lever not enough, or the gears are worn in the tranny. You can adjust the lever and you can try bleeding off the clutch, The engine oil usually cools the clutch, I'm not sure where your filter is, mine is underneath like a car. My tranny clunks and grinds when revving too much, have to wait for the revs to go down before shifting into first. It used to slip on hot days. Hasn't done it but a couple times. I never took out the clutch basket, but it seems fairly easy. If the oil change doesn't do it, and the bleeding of the slave, I would have to dig deeper into complaints about your bike, before I blame the clutch. You might not have to touch it, but you might be looking at something else. Check it out.
