Check to make sure the slave and master cylinders are working. You can probably bleed it if the slave cylinder started leaking. Could possibly be internal on the clutch master.

Bike dies when put in gear


Hi Ron, I would check the clutch interface switch at the clutch lever it sounds as if it is either faulty, broken, come loose or stuck. Some bikes have loads of problems with this beastie. Pull in the clutch lever then try spraying some lube between the lever and the stock and see if you can see the switch plunger move. You might have to remove the clutch lever completely to see this if you do then you should be able to push the plunger in by finger and see it spring back out. The whole switch does in some cases come loose if you look for 2 wires going into the clutch lever stock see it the thing they go into is loose or pushed out, normally they just push back with a slight click. When you operate the clutch lever the switch plunger should move out allowing the bike to start in gear. On my Suzuki you have to operate the clutch lever to start even in neutral. Hope this helps

Motorcycle loses power and just revs when accelerating


the problem is not your tuning, it is your clutch. Motorcycle clutches are maintained as light as possible to stop heavy pressure on your fingers. often when you increase hp, you must increase your spring pressure on your clutch plates so the first thing is to adjust your clutch, if it is too tight it will slip under load (more load = more slip). second,clutches do wear out so if adjusting does not work you will have to inspect your clutch plates for wear and may even have to increase your spring pressure, this is a big job and you will need special gear to do it

I have a 02 sportster, it been salling out on me. i got it about a year ago ran great when i first got it, 2 months later it started stalling randomly wile commng to a stop riding. at first i thought it...


If the engine stalls when you are going 30-45 mph, you are either running out of fuel in the carburetor or you have an electrical problem. In 1996, Harley went to a vacuum operated fuel petcock. It has a small vacuum hose running from the carb to the backside of the petcock. Over years of use, the diaphragm develops small holes. You may need to take the petcock out of the tank and take the plate off the backside. There is a needle, diaphragm. and a spring behind the plate. Hold the diaphragm up to a light and gently stretch it. Look for holes. This may or may not be the problem but it's where I'd start looking. Make sure your idle RPM is about 1000 or so.

Good Luck

Changed fuel pump on 2003 flht ultra classic. Ran fine. Went to start bike couple months later now it wont start again. drained all gas put some cleaner and new gas in it. still nothing?


Hi Rustedwrench, when checking for spark the CKP needs to measure the compression bump in order to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM so always check for spark with either a third plug grounded or lift the end of the plug boot 1/2 " off one of spark plugs that are in the head. and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty
2. Fuel supply valve turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded with gasoline as a result of over use of enrichner.
5. Fuel valve or filter clogged.
6. Vacuum hose to automatic fuel supply valve disconnected, leaking, or pinched.
7. Discharged battery, loose or broken battery connections.
8. Loose wire connection at coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, spark plug cable connections loose,
or cables connected to wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to faulty ignition coil, ignition module, or sensors " Manifold Absolute Pressure" "Camshaft Position Sensor" "Crank Position Sensor" "Brake Apply Sensor
11. Engine lubricant to heavy ( winter operation )
12. Sticking or damaged valves or push rod wrong length.
13. Primary cam sproket spline sheared or missing spacer.
14. Security alarm system not disarming.

I was riding, started to downshift and the clutch lever just went loose, no tension at all. I pulled the cover off to check the cable and it is fine


If the pressure plate broke, you would not get any feedback tension either. With the cover off, you should be able to tell if there is disk pressure. The cable arm could also have come loose from the shaft it is supposed to rotate. The spiral that is supposed to convert the rotation to inward motion could also have stripped out.

Six yrs, is a long time. You really should change the oil. Oil also breaks down like gasoline does. Wet clutches require an oil containing certan sdditives. Old or regular motor oil is not well tolerated. Make sure you have free play on the clutch lever., about 1/8 in. - good luck- Ned

Suzuki atv brake rebuild no pressure


Cylinders, lines and calipers must be bled thoroughly and in order.
Start with the master cylinder.
Break the line loose at the cylinder and tighten it firmly so you can loosen it easily.
pump the lever/pedal several times,(don't worry about pressure yet). Hold the lever/pedal down.
break the line loose slightly, just enough to release the pressure. Re-tighten the line and release the lever.
Repeat this procedure several times. (4-6)
Repeat this procedure at the line just above the caliper.
Finally repeat this procedure at the bleed screw.
This takes a while but will insure that all the air is out of the lines. It dosen't take much air to ruin a great brake job.
Good Luck
