Just bought the bike. It has been sitting around for some time. I cna engage gears with the engine off but when I pull in the clutch the bike remains in gear!

The plates will stick to each other because of oil
check the clutch lever at the motor and make sure it is moving the arm that pushes the pressure plate and make sure it is moving

With the engine off put the bike in first gear and pull the clutch in it should roll pretty freely if not tighten the clutch cable and try it again a transmission gear could possible be getting worn out

Lose the Honda transmission oil. It may have swollen the cork on the friction plates. Go with 10w40 in the gearbox. Any major brand; Mobil, Shell, Quaker State, Pennzoil, etc.. Try the new oil and give the cork a week to shrink back down > if they will. You may need to put in a new set of plates.

SOURCE: what spark plug for yz 125?

Hey Ryan, I gotta say "told you so" on the trannie fluid. Go with NGK BR9ES. That is the plug that came in the bike when it was new. As to the clutch plates, you probably can't find just the friction plates. Clutch plates normally come in sets, < pressure plates / friction plates >. If you can find just the friction plates then go for it.

Best wishes, Tombones49

1976 yamaha yz 125 not shifting properly.not staying in gear


If it does stay in gear when barely throttled but does not stay in while under load, the engagement dogs on the gears(inside the engine) are bad and the engine will need to come apart to repair it.

How to fix the yamaha krypton starter not engaging the engine


Hi, Anonymous the starter drive/Bendix/clutch is a mechanical gear driven component that engages the clutch pack ring gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed, it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.

Yamaha YZ125 Clutch not disengaging


I would be more concerned with the stuck gear than the clutch, but we will start with the clutch.

02ccdb2.gif The push cam may be bent or deformed and the push shaft may be bent. Assuming the ball bearing is in place, the cam and rod are all that can really go wrong. The rod slides out of the left center case. You will need to loosen the springs to get the left side cover back in place. Roll the rod on a flat surface to see if it is bent. I fear a bent shift fork is causing the gearbox to be stuck in third. Fix the clutch and then post a comment to get back to me.

'95 Yamaha YZ 125 clutch - stays in gear when clutch is pulled in


hey dude,, just thought id come in and give u some tips or 3,, i take it when u pull clutch lever in, and try and change gear it feels like your foot will snap b4 it goes in gear,, if that makes sense,, firstly mate,is to make sure the clutch cable slides freely ,easest way is to take cable off and just grab 1 end and make sure it isnt sticky,, if so dip one end of the cable in a bit of old oil ,,whilst holdin the other end ,pull and push the cable inner, this will **** up a bit of lubricant inside the cable ,, keep doin this each end till free to move, ,,next step if the cables ok,,, and may need help if u dont no,drain the oil out,,and as u r sat on the bike is to remove the clutch casing on the right hand side of the moter,where the bottom end of the cable goes,remove the casing being carefull not damage the gasket,,then u will see clutch plates and friction plates housed,, undo the 7 or 8 spring loaded bolts carefully take the first fibre plate out then metal friction plate then another fibre plate and so on,, wen u take the 1st plate out place that on the bench ,stacking each plate on top of one another, cause they have to go back in as they came out,,wen out,,u need a piece of wet n dry paper ,or fine emery,,and just wipe round both sides of the fibre plates taking the shine off them,as u put them back in,, put casing back on with a decent gasket,, oil back in cable on, make sure cable has no free play on the lever so wen u r about to pull lever in it bite straight away,, start her up, warm it up and try it,,any probs still il eat my shoe,, take care m8
