Is it not engaging, or not disengaging? Does it just slip when you put it in gear and let out on the clutch? You can try a clutch adjustment, but may need to look at the clutch discs themselves.

Clutch lever operation stiff and very noisy ( the type of noise you would relate to something seizing up). Along with this the neutral warning light wont come on.

Check your clutch pushrod is clean and can move freely when operated. Otherwise it sounds like the clutch internals.

Clutch not engaging on my 1994 Yamaha yzf600. anyone have any suggestions I'd greatly appreciate it.

Do you have free play on the clutch cable ,it should have about 3 mm of travel on the lever when you pull it before it starts pulling the cable tight.there is also a primary clutch adjuster in the front sprocket cover.

Clutches slipping in yamaha tri moto 175

check adjustments on the clutch cable arnt too tight as you must have 3 to 4mm slack on the lever and if thats ok then remove the clutch engine case and see if there is free play on the centre of clutch plate ! normally a nut with a possi screw , release the nut and turn the screw out to free off any pressure on it between the rod that then gets pushed when you pull the clutch lever ! : )

How do i fit a clutch cable to a honda cbr 125?

The clutch cable is fitted to the lever and the clutch arm on the top of the crank case beside the oil cap. Remove old cable (remove side fairing if you need to for access to cable end) slacken the new cable adjusters as much as possible fit to the clucth arm on the engine and fit to its seat route the cable the same as the old one up to the clutch lever, fit the cable end to the lever, hold the cable sleve tight pull the lever to strech the cable and drop into the lever seat, adjust the cable for 2mm of free play at the lever before the cable is pulled

How do i take the slack out of my clutch cable after i replace the clutch

Turn clockwise the tensioner on your left lever all the way in.Loosen up the 2 nuts on the clutch cable's bottom end.Pull the **** (not especially hard though) and tight the nuts back.Then go to your lever's tensioner bolt and adjust the cable so that the lever's end (ball) should move 2-3cm before the cable stretches (freeplay 20-30mm)

How do I adjust the clutch on a 1981 Suzuki

Adjust clutch cable and "lifting mechanism",,, Loosen locknut on the adjuster SCREW ( gain access by removing the "plug" loctaed the furtherest to rear on left hand side of crank case, looks like a "cap" with a slot in it) and rotate screw IN untile you feel it lightly touch end of turn screw OUT 1/4 to 1/2 turn , then tighten the lock nut...... then use two wrenches to loosen the locking nuts on clutch cable, adjust so there is 4mm / 0.16 inches of free play when you slightly pull the clutch lever ..the measurement is placed at the gap of clutch handle and lever base where you see the cable attached into the handle....tis slight free play is to make sure the clutch is not "tight" engaged all the time.....when you lightly pull on lever watch the adjusting lock screw it will slightly rise...if you can not see it then place one finger on it as you pull lever. ck out pg 20 of manual at for clutch adjust, and pg 58 for cam chain adjust, and pg 78 to see blowup pic of clutch and adjuster

Raptor 350, gears slip at full throttle. Is there an adjustment

sounds like you need a new clutch. but first make sure that your clutch cable is'nt too tight. it should have a little bit of freeplay when you pull the lever.

Clutch lever sudenly becomes hard to compress after short run????

I would not trust that clutch cable. Chances are it is pretty old. It could leave you stranded in traffic. Get a new, worry free, clutch cable. Also, change the gearbox oil, 10w40, and install a new oil filter. The gearbox oil could be dirty and gritty and impeding the operation of the clutch.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!
