Clutch squeals when disengaging... HELP!

I just purchased a Ducati 996 and it has a few goodies on it. I got on the bike and started to disengage the clutch when it started squeaking like the plates were rubbing bad. The guy said it was because its a dry clutch, but i figured the plates were miss aligned... anyone have any experience with this?

    I haven't ridden the bike for a long time. Clutch won't disengage, even when adjusted as far as possible. What do I do now?

The clutch may have overheated in the past. I had a similar problem at about 1,500 miles because of stop and go traffic in 95 degree weather. The plates heat up and glaze over as they slip. I installed an open clutch cover on the same bike and I am now at 6,000 miles with a non squeeling clutch pack.

After a few unsuccessful minutes of trying to start my Shadow (It's cool out, late October) the clutch seemed to stop working. It's now harder to squeeze than normal, and when pulled in, the bike won't...


The neutral switch will prevent starting if the bike isn't in neutral or in gear with the clutch disengaged. You should be able to get the bike in neutral without disengaging the clutch by rocking the bike back and forth while depressing and lifting the gearshift as needed. Once the bike is in neutral, it should start without using the clutch. If it starts, let it run until it's warmed up and check to see if that frees up your clutch. If still no start, you have a mechanical problem, either with the clutch cable, the clutch pack or the transmission. You can also try using a hair dryer or heat gun to warm the cable and clutch housing to melt any ice-up causing a bind.

The Clutch on some bikes will disengage the starter motor. Yamaha will not allow you to engage gear when the side stand is down. Hope this gives you some idea

2008 Ducati S4RS dry clutch either sticks or doesn't disengage when I pull the clutch in riding, and sometimes I can't get the bike out of gear unless I stalling the motor while in gear.


Check to ensure the hydraulic mechanism is working properly and hasn't leaked. If it has leaked or there is air in the system, it wont allow the clutch to disengage properly and would be akin to a clutch cable being out of adjustment or broken. If the yydraulic release is working as it should be, you may have oil fouled clutch plates. Oil fouled plates would cause the bike to jump/lurch from a stop and could also stick together.

1995 900 sp clutch does not disengage when lever


hi,this may help,it sounds like your clutch plates are stuck together,this is quite common on bikes that have been parked up for a while,mine does it ocasionally,i fix it by getting the bike moving and crash starting it,once you have got it running and moving with the bike in the highest gear you can get it into(you can change up and down the gearbox without the clutch and not do any damage)simply pull the clutch lever in and roll on and off the throttle a couple of times and the clutch should disengage...hope this helps

Clutch Problems


slave cylinder and line were replaced at a local dealership. Last year prior to the repair the clutch wouldn't disengage once the clutch had warmed up. It was working fine after the repair. Now along with the new problems there is a whining sound at every speed that I travel at. The sound had never been there before. During operation after the bike is moving the bike operates normally no slipping in the clutch no hesitation, operates as normal just doesn't sound normal. I'm thinking about replacing the clutch pack, basket, throwout bearing, and pressure plate bolts, but will all that really solve the problem. Especially since I don't really know whats going on. Sorry for the wordiness but any help would be appreciated,I had a similar symptom after installing a new Barnett clutch pack. The clutch worked fine when fully engaged, finding neutral was fine, etc. However, everynow and then, when taking off from a stop in first, the engagement point would change from the middle of the lever range to the end of the lever range. The first time it happened it caught me out and I almost fell over while trying to take off from an uphill stop and turn. Anyway, I took the clutch pack out, cleaned the friction plates with contact cleaner, cleaned the drive plates with a Scotchbrite pad, and put it back together. The problem has not reoccurred since.,,,

996 Clutch Slave Cylinder Stuck


drum basket springs rubbers and so on, including the control rod because it had broken. The Clutch lever however operated fine with a nice smooth action before changing the clutch, but now the lever only moves about 10mm before becoming rock solid, making it impossible to disengage the engine. I have removed the clutch slave from the bike for inspection but it remains solid which I think indicates that the piston is stuck. The slave cylinder was hanging free from the bike for a few weeks, I do not know if this is significant. My questions are: What is wrong? How can I fix it? Bike: 996 European Biposto Year: 2000 Many thanks,having the slave hanging shouldn't be the problem. The only only thing I can think of is, when you replaced the rod did you get the correct one? I can't remember off-hand right now, but I know that the clutch rod came in different lenghts. I just can't remember if the 2000 and earlier were the longer ones or vise-versa. I'm sure some one here will know that one. I could be wrong about this is the problem, but it's my guess.,,,
