Question about 1977 Honda GL 1000 (K2)

1 Answer

Clutch The first few days of riding the clutch was fine, now its slipping. I figured it might be out of adjustment, so i backed it all the way off. No problem getting it into gear with it backed of, but the thing is still slipping a little bit. What do you guys think it might be? And if it is the clutches, how hard are they to change???

Make sure the oil your using is NOT energy conserving. This oil has moly and is not good for clutches. It will cause it to slip.

2000 Honda, VFR 800. Clutch began to slip when in gear, sometimes worse than others. One time clutch would not engage at all, had to tow. At home with engine cool, clutch worked fine. Clutch springs?


Hi, Daniel and the usual suspects are:
1. Clutch controls improperly adjusted.
2. Insufficient clutch spring tension.
3. Friction discs or steel discs are worn or warped

Why my 2011 fat boy burn the clutch its only has 2980 milae


As a new clutch or new motorcycle begins to break in, the top of the clutch disc will wear pretty quickly until the clutch discs are seated. Normally, the bike is returned for a 1000 mile service in which a clutch adjustment is made. If this isn't done and the owner disregards the slipping clutch, the clutch disc will be damaged or destroyed. Anytime you suspect your clutch is slipping, gently ride the bike somewhere and have the clutch adjusted. The more the clutch slips, the shorter it's life is going to be. And, usually clutch discs fall into that "normal wear items" list and are not covered under warranty.

Good Luck

I can select first gear and ride away no problem, when I select any other gear there is no drive to the rear wheel at all, there is some slight odd noise coming from the clutch side but it seems to be...


Those are the normal symptoms of a worn clutch. It will pull quite well in lower gears but slips in the higher gears. I doubt if releasing the clutch adjustment is going to give you a bit of grace, you will soon have to replace the clutch, especially considering the noise.

Clutch seems to be weakened or worn??


Ok, if when you are out riding and you accellerate hard and you don't feel slipping, then it is probably not a lack of engagement. If as you say that there is not much in between then shifting should be tough. Try adjusting your clutch. One possibility to consider you might not have thought of is that your clutch lever bearing is worn out. If this does not work, let me know and i'll narrow it down for you.

Well i would say the clutches have sat dry to long. You may change the oil and it solve the problem but more than likely new clutch discs.

Trying to figure out how to adjust the clutch on a 2005 Toyota Corolla style s


You car does not have an "adjustable" clutch. The Corolla uses a hydraulic clutch. The action of the hydraulics eliminates the need for adjustements. If the clutch is slipping, you may need to replace the clutch.
