Question about kawasaki Motorcycles

1 Answer

Clutch is stuck, bike won't start.

Bike broke down while on highway. Very suddenly, it started loosing power. I gave it gas and it still kept loosing power, so I was on my way to the shoulder when the bike suddenly jerked and almost kicked me off. I tried downshifting and got to either 4th or 3rd before it couldn't go anymore. I killed the engine and tried restarting and nothing happened. I got the bike home and drained oil and there were very fine shavings of metal and a black piece that I assume is from the clutch. I assume my clutch broke inside and may have done very small damage to the engine. what are your opinions? (I can only move the bike while holding the clutch, otherwise it wont move)

Hi, Fulladrenali for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.
Good luck and have a wonderful day.

SOURCE: started bike, pulled clutch lever,

The clutch lever should have some tension, so could be a problem with the hydraulic actuator stuck, or a failure of the clutch. try bleeding the clutch, or pull the clutch cover off and see if the pressure plate moves

Cant get clutch to engage after fiting new cable help please


the clutch may be stuck on. Put the bike in neutral, start the bike, run down the road looking like a fool jumping on and off the bike to kick it into 2nd gear and pumping clutch lever. Clutch should be free.

It might also be worth checking if your pushrod has a ball bearing in the end, I had one on mine, replace the clutch plates and it wouldn't work with the ball bearing in :)

Hi!!!!! i have an kawasaki zx6r 1998 and it dosent want to start , i started it 2 days ago, but today it dosent want i charged battery, and when i push start button it dosent do nothing, i checked coil...


Check the clutch, neutral and side stand safety interlocks.
Double check that the bike is in neutral, and the clutch is pulled in when trying to start the bike.
If the bike is in gear with the side stand down, the bike cuts off all ignition.
If the clutch isn't pulled in, the starter won't engage.
Check all these safety interlock switches, and make sure you are in neutral with the clutch in when trying to start the bike.

Bike won't start, headlights and gauges light, hear a click coming from under the bearpaw, battery is new today from dealer


If you're hearing a clicking from the engine casing after changing the battery and the bike still won't start, chances are there may be a problem with your starter motor.

Either it's not contacting well enough to the battery (Faulty Wiring or Loose Connection), may be having trouble engaging/dis-engaging the starter gear, or it's just cactus and needs repair/replacing.

If you haven't tried push starting the bike, I'd suggest trying that first. Sometimes that can dis-lodge the starter gear if it's stuck, but it might require maintenance to ensure it doesn't happen again.

If you're un-aware of how to perform a rolling start, put the bike on a downward slope, or get a friend who can help push. Put the bike in first gear with the clutch in, and the ignition 'on' and roll the bike forward to a bit more than a brisk walking pace. Lift your weight from the seat and drop it down again quickly. As you drop down, release the clutch to engage first gear and hopefully the bike should spring into life. (Beware not to hold the throttle open, or stop moving too quickly, as this can cause an the bike to spring forwards or dropping of the bike as it stops suddenly)

If this fails, you may need to have the Started Motor removed to be looked at, as it may need replacing or repair by a professional.

Hope that helps!

With the bike in gear and the clutch engage, the


Clutch discs are stuck, put the bike in gear, not running, pull in the clutch and push the bike back and forth to break the clutches loose. Once they break loose start the engine put the bike in gear, hold the front brake, and slip the clutch a little to remove any built up or stuck crud on the plates.
