SOURCE: no clutch pressure.

Your clutch lever should have a cable connected to it. Trace it from the lever down to the engine and make sure nothing is disconnected or out of place. That big knurled knob next to the lever is the adjusment and locknut for cable tension. Loosen lock nut, srew cable away from lever until you have only 1/4 " of play between lever and the stop. You should feel tension coming back into the lever...If you have a bicycle ,it is the same drill for adjusting your brakes...look and see...it may help you understand the process...any bicycle mech can show you...maybe a neighbor...Good Luck to you friend....Tim

SOURCE: backfire during shifting between gears

could be few probs, carbon build up on piston crown try a good cleaner fuel additive, your exaust is leaking or blowing allowing air to be sucked back in on revdown as well as you could have a inlet fault overfueling leaving to much unburnt fuel to enter your exaust, might be simple fix by just replacing the air filter and checking for burn marks around the air intake.

Nothing to fear. The shift forks ride on a long spiral grooved drum which has some inertia. If you stomp the gear, sometimes the inertia will carry the shift fork beyond it's intended destination. The various gears are constant mesh with it's mating gear, but are not coupled to it's shaft. The gear, when selected, carries a fixed 'dog' that couples to a sliding 'dog' which is controlled by the appropriate shift fork and is splined to the shaft the gear is riding on. These 'dogs' are like fingers which stick out on the sides of gears and sliders. The reason you have to rock the bike is because the 'dogs' are fairly coarse and don't instantly fit together except when the bike is in motion.

Get yourself a repair manual and find out what it says, but I think you are correct, the return spring is either broken or it has slipped. Try this site for a freebie manual:

Clutch lever went soft while riding


Check the condition of your clutch master and slave cylinders. You'll probably find you need a new slave cylinder, of course new oil and bleeding, hope this helps.

Hello, Clutch not disengaging properly


it looks like you have worn clutch plates very common on learner bikes. but do try to adjust the clutch cable first by winding the adjuster on the clutch lever. if this fails drain the eng oil and remove the left hand eng cover to get at the clutch plates. remove the springs by turning retaining bolts about 6 of them. then your clutch plates will slide out off the drum any bent steel plates even a little replace. any dark or burnt friction plates also replace, usually done all in one go and quite cheap to do . fit new parts in exactly reverse order dont forget new oil re set cable and off you go p.s also check clutch basket for tiny notches from plate wear if very little a gentle file will sort this

2003 SUZUKI GSXR 600 SHIFTING QUESTION


just input , not resolving anything. but i used to have a similar issue with mine, but i had a gs 750t . it has around 20,000 on the clock. sometimes it didnt want to shift into 1st from a dead stop, i had to let out on clutch, then pull clutch again , then it went right in. the gears are so fine cut in the bikes that once they get worn, even the shift fork, it gets a little harder to get into those gears without a little coaxing. by the sounds of it (without knowing the mileage) i dont think id worry too much. especially if its shifting up and down through gears without grinding of any sort. if the clutch is ok on it (being an 03) i assume its still touchy , ull be ok

On two seperate occassions, my 1988 HD FXRS seemed to lose power suddenly on the freeway - It went from 70 mph to 15 mph without shifting down from fifth. I attempted shifting through all gears but nothing...


The latter part sounds like insufficient play on the clutch lever--the clutch seems to be slipping. Sudden power loss is usually linked to the ignition system. Have you checked the lube level in the transmission? You could be having a bearing seizure if the lube is low.
