I would revisit the clutch adjustment especially the clutch cable for smooth sliding and no kinks in the outer cable. gear 5 is normally an over drive gear which requires most power from the engine so a clutch not properly set will be tending to slip, as it will be heated and will be fading. I would look closely at the cable being hung up from the internal wire fraying and jamming on a bit.

Sounds like the bike has been doing wheeles and burnouts. As the clutch plates wear the cable needs adjusting. You have reached the end of the actuating cam. New plates are your best bet.

SOURCE: 1997 VULCAN CLASSIC WITH NEW CLUTCH SEEMS TO SLIP IN ANY GEAR

Any special oils or lubricants in the gearbox? Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. If in a hot area like Texas or New Mexico go with 20w50.

be7bdb4.gif If the clutch still slips then go to a different mechanic and have him adjust the clutch. The first guy doesn't know what he is talking about.

SOURCE: Rpms speed up faster then bike does. Sounds like clutch slip.

You can adjust it by slackening the cable...unless it has hydraulic operation....Otherwise get it replaced before you do more damage..ie clutch dust and debris in the oil, so dont forget the oil and filter change too.

SOURCE: slipping in first gear - 1996 Kawasaki Vulcan VN1500

only two things going on here, first the clutch is out of adjustment, no enough free play, the next is the clutch plates and springs need replacing.

When I let clutch out when cars in gear the car wont pull away if I turn engine off let it sit fr an hr then drive it its fine fr a while.


For awhile? How long? And then it slips again? I think you need a new clutch, your clutch disc must be worn. A new clutch kit includes a new clutch disc or plate, a new or rebuilt clutch pressure plate, and a new release bearing. Costs about $150-200,for the kit, but you also need the flywheel surface smoothed at a machine shop or garage, then the labor cost of removing the transmission or transaxle to replace the clutch- it all adds up to an expensive job.

My clutch seems to slip in higher gears on my suzuki intruder but takes off from dead starts just fine. what does it sound like the problem is?


Sounds like you either need to adjust the clutch cable - there should be a little bit of play in it before it disengages the clutch - or you need a new clutch kit (plates, springs, etc). What mileage is on the bike and has the clutch ever been changed?

Freelander clutch


check out the operation of the clutch system .IT is difficult to rationalise a hydraulic clutch because if it is slipping that means that the pressure plate is being held off and not fully engaging but it also means that when pressing on the clutch the there would be no problem changing gears . But if you have a cable clutch operation then it is possible that the cable is jamming inside the outer cover and holding the pressure plate off ( slipping) and gear problems. If it is cable then replace the cable first. If hydraulic then it may mean box out for a new clutch kit.

Truck wont go when I release the clutch.


You need a new clutch. The clutch disc has worn out, now it's slipping on the flywheel. Clutch kit: new pressure plate, new clutch disc, new clutch release bearing, and new crankshaft pilot bushing- about $150-200, somewhere in that range..

Seems like transmission is slipping in 3 and forth gear . egine revs and loss of propulsion, back off throttle recovers.. does aroun 45+ MPH in3 and 4th gears. Makes it almost imossible to do 50


Sounds like a clutch issue for sure. My 96 1500 Vulcan Classic wore out the diaphram spring on the clutch at 12000 mmiles, 2nd one @ 2000. Bought aftermarket kit (shims) and 1600 clutch parts to fix. As of 6000 no problems.

Clutch was slipping real bad, changed gears just fine. Took it to a garage, installed new clutch kit, Drove it home still slipping, so I replaced slave cylinder, great for about a week started slipping...


check the clutch linkage and make sure it'd not binding and di you replace the pressure plate? if not then it will need to be replace to stop the slipping if the linkage is not sticking or jamming. If the pressure plate springs are broke it would cause it to slip, also if the master cylinder is not releasing this could cause it to slip.

Either your gearing ratio hs been considerably changed (front & rear sprockets are not std) or more likely your clutch is slipping.

Have zl 900 1985 model clutch slips bad replaced clutch and fluids everything apears fine new clutch acts the same way trans shift thru all gears fine acts like clutch cable to tight but its hyd clutch any...


It might have a "wet" clutch like my Yamaha which means that the clutch is in contact with the motor oil. If you use motor oils that have cleaners in them to remove gunk and all that bad stuff then it can cause your clutch to slip. I don't mind the clutch slip though it keeps the bike from popping a wheelie under hard acceleration :)

Our Yamaha 100 runs excellent until yesterday, will slightly move in 1st gear, nothing in 2nd. Oil is good, where should I start?


if the bike revs and doesnt or barely moves like it is slipping youll need to buy a clutch kit it will consist of clutch plates and friction plates the cost is about $70 to $90 you should be able to order it at any repair shop it is located on the brake pedal side the round cover on the main part of the engine if you decide to fix it your self take pictures as you go so you can look at them as a refrence
