Question about 1987 kawasaki GPZ 500 S - GPX 500 R

3 Answers

Possible clutch problem. Feels like setting off in 3rd gear.

My Daelim scooter has lost acceleration from a standing start and strugles at low speed up hills. Once moving above 30 kph it still performs very well and there is no loss of maximum speed. The only way I can describe the difference in performance is thta it is like setting off or traveling at low speeds in 3rd gear. I have removed the belt drive cover and observed that the front drive pulley closes half way before the clutch on the rear pulley starts to engage.
I have no experience of variable belt drives and I would welcome any advice as to when the clutch should engage along with any other comments you could make.
Many thanks

Replace your big clutch spring!!!!!!!! a 1000rpm spring. If the spring isn't stiff enough your scooter lose alot of its torque! and the spring loses its stiffness after some time.. that is normal The spring has the same effect as changing back a gear on a motorcycle. try it! I guarentee it.

If it has a 4 stroke engine then check the compression. You may have bad valves. If it's a two stroke engine the exhaust port(s) may be plugged a bit with carbon buildup. Clean air filter? Exhaust pipe allowing clear exit of exhaust presure?

If you say the scooter struggles at low speed up hills you need to determine if the cluth is spinning

Put the scooter in front of a brick wall or something that will not move

open accelerator and see if engine races ad scooter does not gerk or try to climb wall
If this is the case you have a clutch prolem

you will need to replace clutch

    It sounds like the variable elt drive is not engaging properly

    the belt works on th principal of providing pressure and thus engages there has to be some form of tension either springs or in this case pulley pressure

    I think you should remove the belt and clean any oil off of the pulleys to increase friction


    as the belt wears it can bcome streatched etc replace the belt and like i said before you could have a bad clutch

How do yo tell if clutch is bad, on 2000 750 susuki katana, feels like slipping at max speed on all gears.?


Find a long straight road that climbs fairly steeply get into top gear at about 40 MPH then try to slowly accelerate. If the clutch is slipping you will find that the revs increase but the speed does not. It is not a good idea to rev to the max in each gear it can damage the engine and gearbox. Have you checked the clutch cable and the adjusters also is the clutch release mechanism (push rod I think in your bike) working correctly. A poorly adjusted or damaged, un-lubed cable, with no free play at the lever will not help a clutch to operate properly. I would also have the clutch checked as it could be the friction plates are worn and/or the spring tension is incorrect. (Wrongly adjusted or weak springs will also not help the situation)

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 !

Idle and stalls


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Idle speed improperly adjusted.
2. Inlet system air leak.
3. Leaking accelerator pump.
4. Loose low-speed jet.
5. Plugged low-speed jet.
6. Contaminated or plugged low-speed circuit.
7. Enrichner valve is not seated or leaking.

Hi i've got a honda cbr600f 03 when accelerating hard in 3rd it jumps in to second, what are the possible, causes and whats required to solve the problem. ta


Ascertain that the bike least has an automatic gearing system. For example, automactic gears least requires clutch to propel bike. Once the bike is at slow motion captures an improvided speed with acceleration.

Did you adjust the freeplay on your clutch lever? You should havee 3-5 mm of freeplay. If so, maybe youjust need a new clutch.
