SOURCE: 1988 Honda VT1100 Clutch problem
hi,might be able to help,there is probably nothing wrong with your master cylinder assembly,what has happened is that the clutch plates have stuck together,there are two ways to fix it,one is easy one not quite so easy,try the easy one first,what i normally do in this case is start the bike,roll down a hill or get someone to push you just to get moving,pull in the clutch,change up into second gear,to get the gear box working,change up into the highest gear you can(you dont need the clutch to change up)all the while you are still holding the clutch lever in,get up to a reasonable speed say 20-30 mph,keep the throttle open a little,keep the clutch lever in and start applying the brakes,it may take a few meters but the plates will let go and normal clutch operation should return,as the plates free up,the second option is to remove the engine cover dissasemble the clutch pack and free the plates manually,personally,i have always used the first method,sounds complicated but is actually very simple to do and will save a lot of time and frustration,give it a go first before you pull your bike apart,this is quite a common problem on bikes that have been sitting for a while..hope this helps..cheers

Testimonial: "I did try this but it did not work. I drove it for about 4 miles going up and down the gears and applying the brakes. I guess it has to come apart."
It has two adjustments one on the handlebar and one by the clutch basket. Unscrew them until you get the play where you want it. Start by adjusting the one by the clutch basket

Did you do an oil change recently? Sometimes a motor cycles clutch shares the oil with the engine and a different kind of oil then the bike requires will cause the clutch to slip. This happens alot especially if someone switches to some types of synthetic oil when the bike had regular oil before the oil change.
