Question about 1977 BMW R 75-7
After the winter, I tried to get my motor BMW 75/7 back on the road. Starting is no problem. But when I hold in the clutch (coupling - I don't know the right word) and I want to put him in first gear, he shoots forward and falls out. The clutch/coupling seems not to work anymore. It is probably stuck or it sticks together somewhere. I allready tied to hold in the clutch for one day without succes and I tried to start it in first gear also without succes. Do you have any usefull tips ?
Is the bike shooting forward while you have the clutch lever pulled in or when you let it out? If it's when you let it out you have to do it slower and roll on the accelerator so that it doesn't stall. If you have the clutch lever all of the way in and it shoots forward you may need to see a mechanic... I'm sorry if this doesn't help much.

What you have here is a clutch plate that is stuck against the flywheel. You can try a couple of things. First the safe thing is to put it on the center stand and put it in 4th gear. Hold the clutch in and Grab the rear wheel and rock it back and forth severel times quite hard and this may free the plate That is the simpleest and safest way to do it. donnyb60

The problem may be the clutch thrust bearing,if it seizes and you pull in the handlebar lever the mechanism may get damaged . A lot of play in the lever and rough action with no effect on the clutch is the result.It may just be the clutch plate slightly seized the results of this are proper handlebr lever action but as soon as you put the bike in gear in jumps forward ,try running the engine at tickover for 30 minutes to really warm up the bike then put it in gear,after a few trys things should free up.
