Question about Motorcycles
When i put it in gear it jumps forward and stalls
Posted by Anonymous on
The PW80 does not have a manual hand lever clutch, its a 3 speed semi auto. The bike will jerk and shut off when put in gear. If I put it in gear while rolling then it will work. Any ideas?

You will have to probabley adjust the clutch either from the end of the cable at the side cover or from the above at the handle lever.
Good Luck .

Your Yamaha seems to be needing a clutch adjustment.
You can adjust this on your own by turning the adjusting nut out (at the handlebars) to take up the slack. If that doesn't fix the issue completely, turn the nut back to where it was, and adjust the cable at the clutch housing (right side). Start in small adjustments, and work your way from there. When you get it close, go back to the adjusting nut located at the handlebars and do the fine tuning there. Be sure to leave some slack from full release of the handle to where you feel the clutch tension start. If you don't, the clutch will not fully engage. If this doesn't fix the issue, let me know and we can go from there.
Hope this helps

There should be two bolts/ one per side on the rear side panels. The should be about 10mm and they hold the side panels and the rear of the seat to the frame. Remove those two bolts, and then slide your seat rearward, because there is a plastic tab that holds the seat to the gas tank. Installation is reverse. Slide fwd, install bolts. Good Luck.22

this may help,it doesnt sound like the clutch is out of adjustment,it sounds like the clutch plates have become stuck together,(this happens quite a bit if the bike has been parked for a while..ie over winter)..to fix it get the bike moving,down a drive way or something..then just bang it into gear,then shift into the highest gear you can by shifting without the clutch,once you have a bit of pace on simply hold the clutch lever in and work the throttle on and off all the while holding the clutch lever in,the clutch should free itself fairly quickly and should be back to normall,a lot of older bikes are good at doing this..hope this helps
