Clutch peg grip

I need a replacement clutch peg grip I guess you would call it for my suzuk. does anybody know if its possible to just order the grip for it or do I need to order a whole big part just to get the grip? It can't be anymore than 1.5 inches long. or is it worth it just order a whole new part?

Clutch acting like it has air in it but no leaks

Clutch plates possibly worn. This would make it feel soft for most of the pull on the handle with very little travel in the lever when it grips. If clutch is okay change fluid(I am assuming it definitely is hydraulic)

I just replaced my clutch cable, but now that I've put everything back together I have a problem. The bike will from neutral to first and back without the clutch lever pulled in. However it also...

Good news, you just need adjust the clutch cable..

Always order the part for your model and year when getting parts and make sure it matches in length with the old one. Note how much cable is sticking out of the housing.
Is it 3 1/2 inches or 4 inches or 2 inches. make sure the new one matches.

Put the new cable on with lots of slack.Slack at the adjuster, and slack at the handlebar adjuster
Now pull the lever in, it will be easy because of the slack.let it stay there.
It will stay against the grip.
As you tighten the cable adjustment down by the cover, you'll notice the clutch lever move out.
Once it reaches the top, stop adjusting and pull it in again.
Continue adjusting and pulling the lever until the lever springs back to the top.
You can feel resistence which is the clutches disengaging.
Make sure there is 1/8" free play when the lever springs back.
Now turn the clutch cable adjust on the handlebar outward, which will remove the rest of the slack.
Only leave 2mm slack on the lever.

Now start your bike up and it should work like new.
You want your clutch to disengage within the first 1/2" of pulling the lever in.
This ensures the clutches are definately disengaged by the time you get the lever pulled back to the grip when shifting.

If your clutches are slipping or dragging no matter how you adjust the cable then your clutches may need replaced.
But sounds to me like its just an adjustment.
Hope to be helpful

Slacken of the clutch cable and tighten so that there is 1/2 inch of alomost free play at the far end of the handlebar grip lever.
If it is still slipping, replace the clutch plates.
Hope that helps.

Loss of power accelerating after the bikes warms up GSXR 600 K7

I believe the clutch disc is slipping. This is not something that will get better on it's own. Clutches are wearing parts. When they are worn out or dangerously out of adjustment the clutch will slip. That is to say it will not transmit as much of the available power to ground as it should. You must get this fixed as soon as possible. If you do not know how to adjust the clutch cable find someone who does and pray that you have not already glazed the clutch. Glazed clutches have to be reworked or replaced. Either way it is a big expensive job. Get it done. Ride easy or not at all until you get it fixed. Good Luck.

I am changing the handlebars to 16" ape hangers, need the instrucitons to change the clutch cable and the throtle/idle cables

To change the throttle/idle cables, first you need to remove the fuel tanks so you can get to the carb/throttle body. Loosen the adjusters at the throttle grip on the handlebars. Remove the idle cable first and the remove the throttle cable from the carb/throttle body. Then take the two bolts out of the throttle grip housing halves and carefully seperate them. Remove the old cables from the twist grip. Reinstall new cables in the reverse procedure. Before starting the bike, make absolutely sure that the throttle cables work like they're supposed to and the carb/throttle body will close completely.

To remove the clutch cable, remove exhaust system or whatever might be in the way on the right side of the bike. You need to remove the right side transmission cover. Drain the transmission oil. Remove the chrome right side transmission cover. Disconnect the clutch cable from the clutch release mechanism. Screw the end of the clutch cable out of the cover and take the cable loose from the clutch lever on the handlebars. Reinstall in reverse order making sure you install a new O-ring on the cable at the transmission cover. Replace cover and refill transmission with oil. Reinstall anything else you had to take off.

OK my 125 cc dirt bike the gas tank was leaking so I toke out the ring and then I ordered another one and the bike was standing for about 2 to 4 weeks in the cold then I changed the ring and I relized the...

Both seized.
For the gas tap, spray CRC lube on it, leave for an hour then gently use grips to move it.
For the clutch, need to know if its the cable or interanl clutch. Disconnect cable from engine and try, if OK its internal. If its clutch cable remove from bike and try to spray / fill cable and leave elevated for and hour / day. Then start see sawing cable to free up.
