Sounds like time for an oil change. Dirty, gritty oil is causing the clutch plates to grab. Change the oil filter along with the oil. Ride the bike fifty miles or so then change the oil again. No new filter this time. Doing this will flush out the dirty oil.

The bike is 10 years old. It is probably time, (or past time), to replace the clutch cable if yours is not hydraulic. Most cables never seem to get lubricated. The oil and the cable are low cost items and you can't go wrong in doing the service.

Please rate this solution. Thanks Stacy!

Bike jumps and stalls when put into gear


Sounds like your clutch is partially engaged.
You may be able to adjust the screw near the lever to tighten the cable (take out the slack) and allow the clutch to disengage when you pull the lever.
If that does't work, the clutch plates may be dry or seized?

1st and 2nd gear keep jumping out of gear


You may want to make sure the clutch cable is properly adjusted. At the clutch lever on the handlebars, pull back the rubber cover over the end of the cable where it goes into the lever. You'll find a round lock wheel that you tighten to prevent the clutch cable adjustment from moving. Loosen that wheel then you can turn the clutch cable adjustment in or out to adjust the clutch engagement and take up. For those bikes, you want to adjust it so that there is a small amount of slack in the clutch lever. Look at the "crack" where the lever pivots when you pull on it. Adjust the clutch cable by turning that adjustment in or out until you have just barely enough opening to slip a nickel edge into the very outside of that "crack" when you apply very, very light pressure to the clutch lever (just enough pressure to take the slack out of the lever). Tighten the lock wheel back into place and try it now. Also, make sure you are using a good, FIRM foot pressure to engage each gear. If you don't engage firmly enough or the adjustment is out, then it will pop out of gear. You notice it more on the lower gears because the lower gears allow the engine to send more torque thru the clutch, thereby providing more force to make it pop out of gear.

If this doesn't help, then take it to a shop to see if it's simple worn clutch disks (easy to replace on this bike) or if the gears have worn teeth in the transmission.

How do I adjust the clutch on a 1981 Suzuki


Adjust clutch cable and "lifting mechanism",,, Loosen locknut on the adjuster SCREW ( gain access by removing the "plug" loctaed the furtherest to rear on left hand side of crank case, looks like a "cap" with a slot in it) and rotate screw IN untile you feel it lightly touch end of pushrod....now turn screw OUT 1/4 to 1/2 turn , then tighten the lock nut...... then use two wrenches to loosen the locking nuts on clutch cable, adjust so there is 4mm / 0.16 inches of free play when you slightly pull the clutch lever ..the measurement is placed at the gap of clutch handle and lever base where you see the cable attached into the handle....tis slight free play is to make sure the clutch is not "tight" engaged all the time.....when you lightly pull on lever watch the adjusting lock screw it will slightly rise...if you can not see it then place one finger on it as you pull lever. ck out pg 20 of manual at http://tinyurl.com/2cua6ak for clutch adjust, and pg 58 for cam chain adjust, and pg 78 to see blowup pic of clutch and adjuster

Bike wants to move when in gear and clutch is pulled in


Your clutch is not fully engaged. You should have adjustment not only at the clutch lever but where the cable terminates at the crank case. In order to fix this, screw the adjustment at the lever out to get the desired result. Adjust a bit then try the bike and see if you have moved it enough. Whenever you get the desired result, tighten the set nut on the adjustment.

Wire clutch adjustment


Pulling the lever releases the clutch. Disengageing it so you don't go. Ok, in order to engage the clutch fully, you release the lever and you must have at leas 1/4 inch free play.
If it is not going in gear easily, you probably have too much free play and you are not fully disengageing.. There is the possibility of an internal adjust ment Try the above and let me know how or if that works. Clutch lever pulled by closing your fist releases the clutch for shifting.

Clutch


Press the clutch lever in,  if it's soft it's still air bound and needs to be bleed.   Press the clutch in and it's hard but smooth, see if it's moving your cluth lever on the engine,  if not again try bleeding line till all air out. Press the clutch and everything external to engine is moving ,  you have internal clutch problems.

Wire clutch adjustment


dunno if that's backwards. Anyway: adjusted to just minimum sane play it barely engages with the lever fully in. If I would have to adjust the lever to any shorter position (for smaller hands) it would probably not engage fully. I understand there is an adjustment at the clutch arm down behind the gearbox. If I adjust there what will happen? I'm guessing I can wind that one in a bit then loosen the wire a bit. Will this solve the problem or will I be back at where I am now?,The arm only has limited travel, and there is a screw adjustment between the arm and the end of the clutch push-rod. Not sure what it is on the 1100s; it could be a hex headed bolt or an allen grub, but it's a bugger to get at because the swinging arm is so close. There's going to be some sort of locknut which will have to be slackened first. Make small adjustments, screwing in towards the 'box, and trying the clutch lever each time. ,,,
