Clutch barely engages, slips in 5th gear w/ fast acceleration

36,00 miles. from all indications I think I need a new clutch. Is it possible the linkage or allignment can be the problem ? how complicated would it be to repair or replace the cluthch myself ? are special tools needed ? I'm looking for the least expensive way to fix the problem. The dealership wants approximately $1500.00 to replace the clutch. Can anybody advise me ? Thanks !

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?


possibly
it indicates that the clutch is slipping from not being fully engaged, overheating and fading
check for the correct clearance at the cable end as the cable may be breaking internally and not allowing full engagement

When I take off from a stop my RPM's shoot up and it takes a while for my bike to actually accelerate. This is happening in all gears, but when I get to about 8-9k is when i get a huge power boost.


indications are that the clutch is not engaging properly and is slipping
this can be from a bad clutch cable that is jamming in the outer case and not allowing full engagement
it can also be from incorrect oil in the clutch plate section which will cause the clutch to slip even if correctly adjusted

2007 Harley sportster 883 custom has tarted


I didn't know Harley's had 5th gears. When you start slipping in the top gears, it's usually a worn out clutch - assuming you don't have the clutch cable so tight it isn't engaging all the way. Is there play in the clutch lever?

I have a 1998 Suzuki bandit 1200.I'm having problems with the clutch.I think. I noticed when I would accelerate the rpm would jump 4 -5000 before the bike would respond . I let off throttle to stop rpm...


make sure there is 3mm play on the clutch lever , select 5th gear while engine is running and press the rear brake to stop you moving away ! with a little revs try and set off , if clutch is worn it will slip and not stall the engine ! if this happens then replace the clutch plates !

Its slipping in 5th gear but the clutch plates look new and its getting worse


If she's slipping, she's slipping, no way around that new looking or not. They are probably glazed, and will need replacement.

My Harley 883 Sportster suddenly became stuck in 5th gear.


More than likely the shifter pawl has broken. Breaking in 5th gear is kind of unusual however, they usually break between first and second.

You'll have to remove the outer primary cover to look at the shifter pawl. It's partially covered by the clutch assembly.

Clutch slipping


Clutch plates are probably toasted. Drain the oil, remove the cover where the clutch cable goes into and check them out. Not hard to replace but you do need a special tool to get the plates off/on.

While riding, the 4th and 5th gears do not engage promptly when you clutch and shift the gear. It sort of goes into neutral as one disengages the clutch and accelerate and then falls in place (ie 4th or...


This behavior is the symptom that your clutch plates are getting worn out. Since power is transmitted from the cam shaft to the front sprocket (smaller dia) is better at lower gears but once the rpm increases the clutch plates do not catch up with the cams rotation, hence slipping at higher gears & in between 4th & 5th gears the pulling power of the engine seems to go to neutral before engaging again. Check your clutch plates as well as the sprocket-chain- rear sprocket for wearing out of the gear teeth & replace if required. You will get back full power & acceleration as when the bike was new.............sodeep
