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?

Hi cbloom,
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 .

SOURCE: HI,I HAVE JUST BOUGHT AN XJ600 DIVERSION.WHEN

Paul,
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

SOURCE: how do you remove the seat ?? on a pw80 yamaha

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

SOURCE: 1982 Honda 650 nighthawk; jumps and stalls when put into gear.

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

1897 Yamaha Fzx 750 runs but stalls when put in first gear. Was working yesterday...


Saftey circuit issue! check clutch switch, side stand switch and wiring these are connect to the neutral light switch and the 3 are part of the saftey circuit,
circuit is designed to cut the bike out if the stand is down and you kick it in gear also to stop the bike turning over & jumping forward when you hit the starter and its in gear and the clutch isnt pulled in.

weak stand spring my not be pulling stand onto the stand switch correctly there fore no making the curcuit, switches just make and break the curcuit.

My Yamaha TTR250 1998 model starts and idles fine but when you put it into gear it stalls the bike?


I had an old YZ465 that use to do that. Has it sat a long time? I found on mine the clutch discs were stuck together. I use to start it and then push the bike and jump on and hit it in gear. That would break the discs loose. After that it would work fine until I stored the bike for a long time again.
Hope that helps. Just go easy with it, because the springs force all the oil out from between the clutch plates so they will be dry for just a moment where they were bound together..

When i put my xj600 into gear it jumps forward and stalls


You probably need to short the two wires together in the side stand switch plug,
It can also be a problem with the clutch switch

Tough start


The clutch slave can be difficult to bleed. It sounds like you have air in there. I'd bleed it, and zip tie the lever to the grip overnight. That will allow air to return to the master. Another issue could be sticky plates in the clutch pack. Does the bike get ridden infrequently?
