The engine dies due to (what seems to be) the clutch not fully releasing. When the engine is started it is OK. The driver clutch has about 2500 miles on it since new last summer and has been lubricated within the last 1000 miles. This doesn't happen all the time only once in a while. Any ideas??? The problem is in the drive clutch. It needs to be checked out. Sounds like a lose bushing in one or more of the torque pins holes.,,,

Does the noise happen only when you pull in on the clutch (disengage the clutch), and go away when you let the clutch out (engage the clutch)?

If so, that's the clutch plates rattling until the spring load is reapplied to clamp the up.

I lost my clutch on my 1988 yz 125 the plates dont seem to be engagen or disengaging i got new cable everything seems to look ok i just cant shift gears with clutch cable


If you are able to start the bike and get going using the clutch, it doesn't sound like a clutch issue.
Are you able to pull in the clutch and stop? if so, the clutch is working and there's a problem in the gearbox (bent shift lever or something of that nature)

My bike wont go into gear it just kicks back out and cuts off engine. I can run it on centre stand but cant drive it,I have noticed that my clutch lever has lost its resistance can i just adjust this...


I'm not femiliar with your bike. But a bike is a bike when it comes to some problems, and yours is not disengaging the clutch. So, if its hydrolic than you need to bleed the air out of ituntil you lever feels solid but with just a littls free play. Same thing if it's a cable. Adjust it all the way tight , so that the clutch fully disengages then back it off until there is alittle free play in the lever. You need to be able to squeeze the clutch with the bike on the stand and have the rear wheel stop turning. Don't ride it any other way or you'll toast your gear box. Not cheap. Happy trails.

1987 Honda rebel 250 shifting problems


make sure you have proper amount oil in your gear box, i would change it since is 1987, check the cable, over time it things tend to stretch, squeeze the clutch handle fully, check if it pulling the clutch arm fully, if its not lift fully it will be also hard to engage and disengage the gears. low oil, dirty oil gives the gear very little lubrication will also cause the problems.

Clutch not fully disengaged, hard shifting - 96 FLHTCU


If the previous solution doesn't fix it, beg, borrow or steal (maybe even BUY) a service manual and run thru the clutch adjustment BY THE BOOK.. I also would suggest removing the clutch cable and checking for binding, fraying, kinks, etc. If the problems still persist, total disassembly and inspection of the clutch will have to be done.

Clutch


new procut basket and barnett plates. Had to file the barnett friction plate tangs they all slide but are a tight fit. All plates installed carefully per the Barnett instructions. Started the bike in neutral all fine shifted into 1st clutch in, I feel the bike want to creep forward although just slightly (I can hold it with my feet down). Can't get to neutral again with the clutch in until I shut the bike off. So, just before I go back in and pull a plate out to make the clutch pack smaller, i wondered whether anyone here has had this problem and whether if I ride it like this for a short while whether the clutch pack will settle in and fully disengage?,A too-high overall thickness of the plate stack will cause drag between plates when the clutch is disengaged making it difficult to select neutral when the bike is stopped. The last 2mm steel plate can be interchanged with a 1.5mm curved plate facing away from you if you want to adjust the stack to get the 38mm stack thickness, or if you want a more progressive, soft clutch engagement. A commonly-used substitution that adds an additional spring plate to the stack. Any of the steel 2mm plain plates can be exchanged with 1.5mm plain plates to reduce stack thickness or increase stack thickness as needed to achieve your desired overall height. You will see the need for this as friction plates wear, so keep your steel plates from pervious clutch replacements as spares to be used as height adjustments later. The 2mm and 1.5mm steel plates only need replacing if they’re scored or warped.,,,
