Assuming it is a standard cable and not hydraulic, ( I can't remember which your bike has ), Lubricate the cable and change the gearbox oil and filter. Ride for 50 miles or so then change the oil again but not the filter. This will flush out the dirt and grit that is hampering the clutch. Your clutch cable is probably pretty old and in questionable condition. Consider installing a new cable.

Why can I hardly pull my clutch lever in on my 2008-Victory 8-Ball motorcycle


It sounds to me like the inside of the clutch cable itself has broken strands that is making in bind up. Disconnect the cable at the motor (transmission) now see how difficult it is to squeeze the clutch lever on the handle bar. If it is easy to pull back and forth than the clutch cable needs replacing.

Gsx750 clutch cable


See if you can push the bike with it in gear and the clutch lever pulled in. If the clutch is stuck, push start the bike, jump on, get to about 10 mph, pull in the clutch lever and hit the rear brake hard. This will usually break a stuck clutch loose.

No clutch when you pull the clutch lever started getting worse tried adjusting lever stil gettin worse checked mineral clutch oil hardly anything in resorvoir is my clutch on the way out?


It could be. First thing to do is look for leaks, if no leaks? Then refill and look for leaks while you
are clutching the lever. If no leaks? proceed to adjustment . Try lever adjust first, and then go to
your lower case adjustment, bleed system. You should have a clutch . You may have to repeat
the steps until you get it right . If no clutch after that you will need to replace clutch plate's . I
hope this helps you, and good luck .

1996 Honda Goldwing. the cluch lever is very hard to pull-in is there anything i can do to repair


Take the clutch cover off motor.Look for any broken springs or pieces falling out. Then readjust clutch from bottom,motor, to top,cable at lever.You could try adjusting lever,but you're pulling against clutch springs and if they're not broke then readjustment should work.Owners manual might cover this,if not get shop manual.Not a bad thing to have.

Why does my motorcycle stall when I change from neutral to first even with the clutch fully engaged?


This usually means the clutch is going bad or is bad. Does it seem to shift hard when you are normal shifting? You should be able to shift with the lever pulled 3/4 of the way back with no surging or hard shift. I would start with replacing the clutch or having it checked out.

The clutch of my dt125 is hard to sqiz, is it the


Disconnect the clutch cable at the side case. Now try the lever. If it is easy then the problem is not the cable. A short handle does make it harder to pull the clutch in. Get a new lever and hook the cable back up to the side case. If the clutch lever is still hard to pull in, try changing the gearbox oil. Dirt and grit can build up and cause the clutch to become stiff. If an oil change doesn't fix the problem after riding for an hour, get back to me by posting a comment.
