Question about 2001 Yamaha Serow 225 WE

1 Answer

Clutch noise If I let the clutch out a little fast or have slightly higher revs, the clutch screams. There is no clutch slip so maybe the clutch is on the way but not gone.

Sounds like your clutch is slipping. Make sure your clutch lever has free play of at least a 1/2 inch. Otherwise it is time for a new clutch. Although at 15000 mi it should not need one yet.

Driving down the road a open the throttle to accelerate. the engine revs up but it takes the bike a few seconds to speed up. could it be clutch fluid? clutch is brand new.

A new clucth will slip a little at first. Its recommended to try to make the clucthes slip.
i just put in a set that instructed me to make the clutches slip.
A brand new set of clutches needs to seat and it will take a few times riding it before it does.

If they continue to slips after a few rides then you should have your master cylinder bled.
If the clutches are not engaging all the way, the clucthes will slip and motor revs but bike dont move.
if the clucthes are not disengaging all the way, the clutches drag, and the bike will edge forward because the clucthes are not disengaing from the motor.

Thats a pretty simple set up, hydraulic just needs to be bled all the way in the same manner you bleed a brake caliper.
once bled there is no adjustment and the clutches should disengage and engage within the first 1/2 inch of pulling in the lever.

Hope that helps, and don't worry about your new clucthes, they will slipp a little but will go away.
i'm sure of it.
Best Regards

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.

Slight sliping in third gear when accelerating hard. Does clutch need replacing

If it is the original clutch I would say probably to check for sure go about 35mph put the bike in top gear 5th i believe on your bike give it full gas if the bike revs fast clutch needs repacement

Need to find out the clutch disc spec's for a 03 suzuki orzak 250

the easy way to find out if the cluch is slipping is to ride the bike in top gear pull in the cluch rev the bike up to high revs and drop the cluch if the engine dont drop in revs very fast and the revs only drop slowly its slipping if this happens check that you have a small amount of slack in the cluck cabel ie: 1/4 of an inch is ok if its to tight it will cause the cluch to slip as the engine warms up

When 1973 enduro is in higher gear the bike revs

Yes, it does sound like a clutch, but make sure you have a little free play in the clutch lever. Age will make the clutch plates deteriorate.
You need to remove the right side engine cover to get at it. Take your time and note where all of the pieces are. Pre-soak the new clutch plates (The ones with fiber on them) in oil before you install them.

Screaming sound

its quite normal for these bikes to scream at high revs its what they do at the high revs though it becomes more apparent with engine age and thrashing into the high revs maybe a good service is due hope this helps
