SOURCE: clutch not fully disengaging

You have either air in your hydraulics which you need to bleed or else the clutch plates are worn/ is the repair manual....

SOURCE: clutch engaged engine stalls 2003 Suzuki GSX-R 1000

The bike has a sidestand interlock that prevents you from riding away with the kickstand down. That interlock is not functioning properly. Could have been bent or moved, unplugged, or perhaps the relay has failed. If physically activating the switch does not work, and connecting the wires with a jumper does not work start looking at the turn signal relay, some bikes have that circuit integrated into the relay.

SOURCE: clutch rm 125

Okay, this may take a couple of comments back and forth but I can get you back on the road. First, Have you done any work on the clutch lately? If so, what and why? Did the clutch work okay after the work? Have you changed gearbox oil in the last month or so? If so, EXACTLY what oil did you put in the gearbox? i.e. "10w40 Mobil Super Blue fluid with silicone friction limiters". Just post a comment to get back to me.

SOURCE: peugeot jet force 50 engine cuts out on overrun

when the engine dies pull out the spark plug and earth the plug on the metal part and turn it over dont hold the spark plug as you will get a shock if the plug sparks you know the ignition system is working.if you have no spark do a compresion test to see if there is a problem with the engine.if that ok you will have a fuel problem make sure the breather on the fuel tank isn blocked or trapped.

Problem on my ktm 450sxf 2007 model inner hub on the clutch

Your hub on the shaft - the nut is too tight. The nut is pushing the hub too far on the shaft and making it a drag. Need to back the nut off and torque it at factory spec. That could be somewhere between and 12-15 lbs. This has happened to someone else I know.

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

Thanks tombones. My computer hates me so it wouldn't let me reply. How would i have damaged my forks. I haven't dropped it "yet". could it be my clutch?

The shift forks are the weakest part on these motorcycles. The clutch has nothing to do with a hard shift lever. If the clutch engages and dis-engages as it should then it is fine. A friend (or yourself) may have shifted up and down while the engine was not running. If the gear dogs didn't happen to line up at the time, a bent fork or two can happen. If your bike is a 1988 the forks have had a good life. The shop will likely charge $1000 or so for the repairs. You can reply by just posting a comment instead of posting from scratch. Could you rate my answer?

How do you adjust a clutch on a yamaha gt 100 motorbike this bike has been in storage for a few years. We just got it back running but at first the clutch wouldnt work at all the we took the cover off the...

Since the bike was stord for a long time the clutch plates have siezed kinda on the plates, all you have to do is put your bike on the main stand and thn select a gear and press the clutch lever and one turns the rear wheel ..this might help to release the plates.
If its tough to turn the rear wheel by hand thn try pushing the bike exrating pressure to the rear side so tht the wheel can get maximum contact to the ground.
This works for my bike XJ750R 1981.
Hope this helps!, or else you will have to remove the clutch basket and clean and refit.
