Question about 2001 Ducati 996 S

No pressure in the clutch lever

Hi, I got a 748 last week. I pulled my clutch discs out to check them. They're ok. Put them back in, bolted on the pressure plate (which was flush with the discs) & now I have no pressure in the clutch lever. Notches are aligned. The clutch slave cylinder works fine. Everything works fine until I bolt the pressure plate on, then it doesn't move out when the lever is pulled in. Can you help?

Hi Koorong,
It seems you may have refitted it incorrectly the system,especially the springs !, the round ones or the center inside clutch lifter pin which whn operated does not push to lift the pressure ring.
I am not tht experinced withthe duccati but i guess the clutch systems works on the same principles.

Drain the oil and Pull the clutch cover off. That rod connects to the clutch push button. sounds like it fell out. Undo all the little clutch cover bolts. Carefully pull the cover off leaving all the clutch plates in a stack as some are different to others usually the first or last plate .Check the center of this plate as that is where the button usually is. Put it all back together and check clutch with cover off. You should see it move away as you pull the lever. Make sure you back off your clutch first. Hope this helps cheers

  1. Remove the transmission or transaxle as outlined.
  2. Insert a pilot shaft or an old input shaft into the center of the clutch disc, pressure plate, and the pilot bearing in the crankshaft.
  3. With the pilot tool supporting the clutch disc, loosen the pressure plate bolts gradually and in a crisscross pattern.
  4. Remove the pressure plate and clutch disc.
  5. Clean the transmission and clutch housing. Clean the flywheel surface with a non-oil based solvent. Wash your hands before installing or handling the clutch assembly parts. Hold the clutch disc by the center hub only.

Before assembly, slide the clutch disc up and down on the transmission input shaft to check for any binding. Remove any rough spots with crocus cloth and then lightly coat the shaft with Lubriplate.
  1. To remove the throwout bearing assembly: Remove the return clip and take out the throwout bearing carrier and the bearing.
  2. To replace the throwout arm use a / 16 in. punch, knock out the throwout shaft spring pin and remove the shaft, springs, and the center lever.
  3. Do not immerse the throwout bearing in solvent; it is permanently lubricated. Blow and wipe it clean. Check the bearing for wear, deterioration, or burning. Replace the bearing if there is any question about its condition.
  4. Check the shafts, lever, and springs for wear and defects. Replace them if necessary.
  5. If you hadn't planned on replacing the clutch disc, examine it for the following before reusing it. Loose rivets. Burned facing. Oil or grease on the facing. Less than 0.3mm left between the rivet head and the top of the facing.
  6. Check the pressure plate and replace it if any of the following conditions exist: Scored or excessively worn. Bent or distorted diaphragm spring. Loose rivets.

Why does clutch have no tension on cr85r Honda


Bolt the clutch cable's tensioner on your left lever mount assy.Unbolt the clutch cable's nuts at its bottom mount and pull so that you remove any **** it may has. When you bolt them back on, make sure that the clutch lever has a 2-3cm freeplay (measuring its end ball movement).If you still don't have tension, then you must take off the right hand crancase cover and check the fiction plates as well as the tension springs behind the 4 bolts which mounts the pressure plate against the clutch basket.

Clutch slipping on new bike so has no traction on start. Brand new Bike. Peter


Hi


Being in proper adjustment ensures that your clutch is FULLY disengaging when you pull the lever and is fully engaging when you release the lever. This will make sure that it will not slip under acceleration or drag when the lever is in. It will also prolong the life of the clutch, making it last longer.
Also note, normally there is an adjustment at the clutch itself AND an adjustment of the cable to ensure proper free-play on the cable, this is for making sure there is no tension or pressure being applied to the clutch with the lever fully released.

Here is how you can fix your clutch:-

Drain the oil out of the 4-wheeler. This is done by unscrewing the drain plug under the engine. If you have a skid plate obstructing the plug, remove it first. Remove the clutch cover with a socket and ratchet. Inspect the gasket and replace if it is worn, cut or ripped.

Remove the pressure plate by loosening the bolts with a socket and ratchet. Loosen in a crisscross pattern so that the pressure plate comes off easily and won't bind. There are springs behind the bolts, so be careful not to loosen them. When removing the pressure plate be aware of the lifter behind it and make sure you don't lose it. Remove the friction plates from inside the clutch compartment. Remove the jutter springs and make a note of how they are positioned. This will make the reinstall process easier.

Reverse the steps to reinstall. When installing the bolts on the pressure plate and the clutch cover, consult your service manual for the right torque pressure.

When i put the 1st gear it vibrates before pulling off.


You may need to have you clutch replaced. This is usually a sign of a bad disc. If the clutch is replaced, they will replace the pressure plate, disc, throw-out bearing, pinion bearing. This will (should) take care of this issue. I just last week replaced my clutch (was doing the same thing). It is also caused from not accelerating enough before (while letting out the clutch, so the clutch is jumping back and forth.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

1998 ford contour 2.5 ltr manual,stuck in second and have to hold the clutch in to move it.how do i solve this issue?


SECTION 308-00: Manual Transmission/Transaxle and Clutch - General Information 1998 Contour/Mystique Workshop Manual DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Manual Transaxle and Clutch Manual Transaxle and Clutch - General Information This section covers general procedures for diagnosis and testing the clutch system. For additional information, refer to Section 308-01 . For specified clutch system service procedures. For additional information, refer to Section 308-02 . For a complete description of the manual transaxle. For additional information, refer to Section 308-03 .
The clutch system includes:
  • Flywheel.
  • Clutch disc.
  • Clutch pressure plate.
  • Clutch master cylinder.
  • Clutch slave cylinder.
  • Clutch release fork.
  • Clutch release hub and bearing.
The clutch master cylinder transmits fluid pressure to the slave cylinder, which in turn moves the clutch release fork and the clutch release hub and bearing.
The clutch master cylinder uses brake fluid and shares a common reservoir with the brake master cylinder
The clutch is a single plate, dry-friction disc with a diaphragm-style spring clutch pressure plate. The clutch disc has a hub which is splined to the input shaft. The clutch disc has friction material where it contacts the flywheel and the clutch pressure plate. Torsion springs on the clutch disc help absorb the engine torque pulses. The clutch pressure plate applies pressure to the clutch disc, holding it tightly against the surface of the flywheel.
In the engaged position, the diaphragm spring holds the clutch pressure plate against the clutch disc, so that engine torque is transmitted to the input shaft. When the clutch pedal is depressed, the clutch release hub and bearing pushes the diaphragm spring center toward the flywheel. The diaphragm spring pivots at the fulcrum, relieving the load on the clutch pressure plate. Steel spring straps riveted to the clutch pressure plate cover pull the clutch pressure plate from the clutch disc, disengaging the engine torque from the transaxle and enabling the gears to be changed.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Inspection and Verification - MTX-75
The following checks should be carried out before repairing or replacing the transaxle:
Poor gear shifting
  1. Check the operation of the clutch: Lay a block of wood approx. 25 mm thick under the clutch pedal and depress the clutch pedal as far as the stop. If 1st or 2nd gear can be selected with no problem with the engine running and the parking brake applied, the clutch is OK. If the gear cannot be selected, repair the clutch.
  1. Check the selector mechanism:
    • The free play in the gearshift lever must be no more than 15 mm.
      • If the gearshift lever free play is too great, check the gearshift cables and replace them if necessary.
    • If the gearshift lever free play is OK, adjust the gearshift linkage. For additional information, refer to Section 308-06 .
  1. Check the transaxle fluid level and top up with Automatic Transmission Fluid ESD-M2C186-A if necessary.

Replace clutch in a 2003 hyundai Elantra


  • The manual transmission in your Hyundai Elantra uses a clutch to engage and disengage the power from the engine to the transmission.
  • The clutch disc is sandwiched between the engine flywheel and the transmission pressure plate.
  • When you switch gears and let off the clutch pedal, there is a short period during which the clutch is slipping to transmit the power in a controlled way. This causes wear on the clutch; over time it will require replacement.
The procedure to replace the clutch is as follows:--- 1) Jack up the Hyundai Elantra and place on jack stands. 2)Drain the transmission gear oil into a catch pan. To drain the gear oil, loosen the drain bolt with a ratchet. 3)Disconnect both drive axles (half shafts) from the transmission. Use a ratchet to remove the two bolts that hold the steering knuckle to the strut. Once those are out, you can easily pull the axles out of the transmission. The steering knuckle is the component that the wheel and strut attach to. 4)You can locate the two bolts to remove by following the strut down from where it's bolted into the engine bay Removing these two bolts allows you to pull the steering knuckle outward so you can pull the drive axle out of the transmission. 5)Remove the exhaust downpipe from the rest of the exhaust. It will be held on with two bolts at both ends and can be removed with a ratchet. Removing this piece is necessary to gain access to the transmission. 6)Disconnect the shifter cables connected to the transmission. Use a ratchet to remove each shifter cable and its housing.Remove the bolts holding the transmission to the engine block (there will be about seven or eight bolts). Place a transmission lift underneath the transmission to hold it and lower it down. If you don't have a transmission lift, you can use a transmission attachment for your jack.Shift the transmission back and forth until it drops onto the jack. Pull the transmission straight back, ensuring that no pressure is put on the input shaft, then lower the transmission to the ground. 7)Remove the pressure plate and clutch disc from the flywheel with a ratchet tool. Then remove the flywheel with a ratchet tool and replace it with a new flywheel. Alternatively, have your flywheel professionally machined at a machine shop then replace it in your car. Torque the flywheel down to the manufacturer's specifications. 8)Place the clutch disc on the clutch disc alignment tool and insert the tool into the flywheel input shaft hole. Connect the new pressure plate to the flywheel and torque the bolts. Once the pressure plate is torqued down, remove the clutch alignment tool. 9)Grease the new throw-out bearing and place it on the input shaft of the transmission. Once the transmission is installed, it will push against the pressure plate. 10) Reconnect all the parts which you removed while replacing the clutch. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Clutch will not disingage when i pull the lever .


Sounds like it is not adjusted properly, or you have the clutch misaligned. You can check for proper operation with the bike off, and the clutch cover off while pulling the clutch lever. Should be able to see it move 1/4-3/8 of an inch.

Clutch feels fine on lever, was ok before i changed front sproket, have bled, but can not push bike when its in gear and lever pulled in,fzr1000 exup 89.


When you put the sprocket cover back on, you've not engaged the clutch push rod correctly in the clutch slave cylinder. As the cover was tightened down it's pushed the slave cylinder piston too far back.
Remove the slave cylinder only (3 x 8mm head bolts) and check it operates properly, then ensure the push rod is correctly seated in the depression in the centre of the slave cylinder plate when you bolt it back up. FJ1200's have the same clutch and I had the same problem with my FJ...
