Sounds like the bike has been doing wheeles and burnouts. As the clutch plates wear the cable needs adjusting. You have reached the end of the actuating cam. New plates are your best bet.

SOURCE: Clutch push rod will not depress to engage

go to this http://www.cmsnl.com/yamaha-rt1-19701971_model8356/partslist/A-09.html and then click on "view big image", this will give you a diagram of the clutch etc,, the adjustment (No. 26) may need looking at, or (No.11,12,) have broken.Basically you turn 26 in (clockwise) untill you feel light resistance then back off 1/2 turn (been years since i worked on one of these!) this should give you freeplay, have you just got the bike?, and do you think it has been stripped lately(ie the clutch). PS I am not affiliated with the web site i offered above, just a handy reference for you maybe? cheers

My bike was running perfectly fine, until I changed the clutch lever. I got an after market shorty lever, and installed it just as the oem one. Now it will crank, but not shift without dying...?


Hi, Matt my thoughts are the shorty lever pull distance may not be the same as your Oem lever and is confusing your clutch safety switch/sensor for more information about your question and valuable "FREE" downloads that you will need please click on the links below. Good luck and have a nice day.

T56 6Sp manual not engaging, gear lever sloppy


Check and bleed the clutch system. If the clutch is working correctly there will be no clashing of the gears during selection or attempted selection. Pull the gear lever out of the turret section of the gear box and see if the pin in the side that the lever pivots on is still intact. If ok undo the turret section of the box and ensure that the plastic cup on the end of the lever is still in place . There is normally a small cup that fits over the end of the lever that takes the gear noise out of the gear lever and it also takes up the clearance between the end and the slots in the selector rails.

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.

After fiiting a new clutch cable and clutch return spring i can not get the clutch to engage what have i done wrong


Take off clutch lever. If it engages fully, check for a worn bearing in lever. Otherwise you have adjusted it improperly or the least possible cause, you did not install spring properly. If when lever is off and clutch still does not engage, remove cable from spring.If clutch engages you either have a faulty cable or somehow you have it bent to far or pinched it..

I think there must be a difference on the shape between the new and old clutch lever, try to adjust the clutch cable adjuster, the adjustment must be a little tighter you grip the lever,try to adjust at your freference

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.
