!983 honda magna v45 clutch not engaging

Clutch was fine, but I had to remove carbs to clean them. After putting bike back together, there is no clutch. Bike will not move in gear while not running and holding clutch lever, And started the bike will just die when shifted into gear (you know, after it jumps out from under you almost) Fluid level is good, do not see any pinched lines or anything.
I did nothing more than remove carbs and replace them.....I guess.

If you rebuilt your carburetors you have made a mistake when you reassembled them a carb must sprsy a fine mist of "dry" fuel into the engine intake your carbs are flooding you need to check your fuel floats , jets and, don't forget to check the power piston circuit and, balance (sync) your carbs on the bike when you're done
your chuch is fine if you did not touch it

Hello,

Have you checked to see if the clutch lever is working properly? If the clutch stays engaged, the bike won't move. You can lubricate the clutch cable by removing it and taping a cardboard cone to the housing and pour a lightweight (30w) motor oil into the cone. Next, move the cable back and forth for a minute or so so that the oil will flow down inside the cable.

If the clutch cable is working correctly then then clutch plates are not disengaging when put into gear. Try different gears to see if it does the same thing. Also, have you changed the oil in the bike? Your bike uses a wet clutch system which means that the oil you put in the crankcase is also used for your clutch plates. Using a synthetic oil will cause problems with your bike (according to Honda).

Hopefully this will give you a few more ideas to try. If you need more information, please post a reply/comment and I will get back with you.

If you find this information helpful, please vote on this post. Thank you.

Regards,

Oz

Engine shuts down while still bike is running. and low thrust from the engine. is it clutch problem or engine problem ??


It is not likely to be a clutch problem if pulling in the clutch lever fully dis-engages the engine. If the bike wants to pull forward in first gear even though the clutch is pulled in all the way, then the clutch is not fully dis-engaged. Adjust the clutch cable. If the clutch is working properly then there is an engine problem.

If an engine problem, start by draining the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side or bottom of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the
carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine.

Magna engine surges


The carbs may need to be cleaned. Try running seafoam in the tank first and see if that clears some of it up. The slow jets may be plugged up inside the carbs. If the snorkel had been removed from the airbox, it could cause siminlar problems as well. have you changed the spark plugs yet? be sure to check out the Honda Magna forums for more info:
