Question about 1994 Yamaha XJ 600 Diversion S

2 Answers

Tough start When I start my bike in the morning or after it's been sitting a couple hours, I pull in the clutch, and when I put it in first gear it either jumps forward and stalls or wants to move forward but doesn't quite stall. After the bike warms up the problem goes away. I am pretty familiar with clutches in cars and in general (I'm a mechanic) but I just want some opinions. Could it be air in the system that takes a warm up cycle to go away? Or is this a common problem with Monsters? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

The clutch slave can be difficult to bleed. It sounds like you have air in there. I'd bleed it, and zip tie the lever to the grip overnight. That will allow air to return to the master. Another issue could be sticky plates in the clutch pack. Does the bike get ridden infrequently?
