A issue with the 99~02's is that the clutch cover gets warped from the repeated heat/cool cycle associated with riding your bike. You can take some 500 or higher grit sand paper and tape it to a flat surface and then in a cicrle pattern smooth the clutch cover out. Works for some people...if it's too far out, you'll have to get a new cover.

I put some new 10 40w oil in the case and took off. 2 miles and 120 mph the clutch completely slipped and would not engage. Did I put to much oil in the bike or did the clutch burn up? or What? please...


Not being able to see the bike makes it hard to assess. Get your self a manual, if you haven't got one, go to http://www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-manuals.asp , and download one. Once you have it apart you will be able to see the damage, and rectify it, and you may even work out what caused it. Sounds to me as if you blew a seal, whether from to much oil or not is very hard to say.

Will main clutch casing fit yz 125 2001 from 1997?


Hey Ryan! Long time since hearing from you.

When you say "main clutch casing" do you mean the right side cover for the gearbox or do you mean the primary driven gear (AKA "clutch basket") that the clutch boss (AKA "clutch hub") and all the clutch plates fit into?

If you mean the right outer casing > they are slightly different, '97 pn 4JY-15431-10-00 and 2001 pn 4JY-15431-12-00. The entire clutch is the same from 1997 through 2001.

I have a suzuki sv 650s that will not hold a charge.it reeds 13.2 volts at idel & 12.8 at higher rpm.it has a new battery & it was charged properly.


thats a problem with the regulator off of you magneeto that charges your batery its usualy located on the side of your motor under the honda plate there is a little round cover that covers it but if you take that off all your oil will come out so watch out for that.

2003 yz 125 clutch


This sounds like dirt and grit in the oil is causing the clutch to grab. Change the gearbox oil. Ride the bike for a couple of hours using the clutch often. Now drain the oil again and put in fresh oil. This will flush out the dirt and grit. Use 10w40 motor oil. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. Do not use synthetics or oils with "special" additives.

Other possible causes are > a need to adjust the clutch lever for 1/4" free play at end of the lever > warped clutch plates or friction plates > Clutch has been worked on and assembled wrong > low oil level in the gearbox > frozen clutch hub bearing > Incorrect clutch cable being used.

Please post a comment after the double oil change. The 2x oil change is a cheap way to eliminate a possible cause and hey, it isn't gonna hurt anything. If you still have the problem I can help with a clutch rebuild.

Puting wrong oil in transmition


The problem did not start untill the 10w30 Honda transmission oil went in. It isn't the 10w30 thats the problem. It's the TRANSMISSION oil as opposed to MOTOR oil. There is a difference. As I said before, the swelling may or may not go away.

Best wishes Ryan :)

Yz 125 2001 stays in gear when clutch pulled in


Lose the Honda transmission oil. It may have swollen the cork on the friction plates. Go with 10w40 in the gearbox. Any major brand; Mobil, Shell, Quaker State, Pennzoil, etc.. Try the new oil and give the cork a week to shrink back down > if they will. You may need to put in a new set of plates.
