Cr 250 2002. Clutch will not disengage. All has been inspected and looks OK. It seems like the discs are not getting the proper spread between them to free up tranny. With all slack out of cable to get...
.25" is more than enough to release the clutch - if this is measured at the "hat" (pressure plate) of the clutch pack.
Most of these kinds of clutch problems are caused by two or three things: Incorrect oil, rusted plates or a notched clutch basket. There is nothing in the clutch pack to separate the clutch discs. The springs on the pressure plate push the stack together and pulling the lever relaxes this pressure, but nothing actually spreads them away from eachother.
If you use SAE motor oil for the transmission you will experience stiction - the suction caused by the oil is enough to keep the discs stuck to eachother pretty tightly. When cold, the stiction can be pretty strong.
If you take off in first then pull the clutch in and rev the engine, will it release then or will it pull just as hard as normal?
Have you blown your water pump seal? Water in the cases can rust the plates pretty quickly which can lock a clutch up tight. Something else to look for.
I suggest taking the discs out and examining your clutch basket and internal hub for notching if you do not feel the oil could be the culprit.
