Do you mean the clutch wont allow you to engauge 1st gear from neutral ? if so then clutch plates are stuck together , try warming up engine first then get a friend to push you while engine running in neutral and pop into 2nd ( without clutch ) and ride round for a while then pull clutch in ( at fair speed to keep rolling ) and stamp on the rear brake , mite take several attemps , and this should free the plates ! Check gear oil for signs of water also , but this can happen if bike stood for several months ! hope this helped ? P...

SOURCE: replace handle bars on a 2006 HarleyDavidson RoadKing

I added a 2 inch riser to my dyna and didnt have to replace any cables, so - to answer your question, not always. There is plenty of wiggle room, however, if there is gonna be more difference that about 2 inches, replacement will be required. ADJUSTMENT WILL DEFINITELY be needed. And no, its not difficult, when u have the bars off, its nearly 1/2 done anyway

Your bike has a hydraulic clutch with a master cylinder at the clutch lever. Remove the cap and I think you will see there is little or no fluid in the reservoir. You need to fill it up then bleed the system to remove air in the line. This is done the same a bleeding brakes on a car. If I recall correctly, the bolt that holds the hydraulic hose to the master cylinder acts as a bleeder for the cylinder and there will be a bleeder valve at the other end of the hose to bleed the hose and actuator. Many parts are available at the website below. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Clutch plates could be soaked, and yes you can adjust the pushrod....1st position on handler bars and the second on the bottom right side...there is also a deeply buried third adjustment screw. When you look at it you will see a lock nut on threaded stud with slot head. If you have no results adjusting 1 & 2 loosen them first to adjust # 3.... I hope this helps.

How do bleed the clutch,on a vtr1000.


vtr1000 I believe your referring to a Honda...
OK,,,,
this is very difficult to explain. I don't think there is a bleeder plug for the bike, you need to open up the clutch reservoir on the right handle bar.. I know of a video that will help...
> make sure you cover all exposed paint and plastics on your bike first.
> If at any time you feel lost or uncomfortable take it to a shop but I'm confident you can do it.
> just watch the reservoir so that it doesn't overflow
> This is a great video...

Like this or pretty close.





  1. Cock brake while expanding chain brake binder by pulling brake handle towards left-hand (wrap-around) handle grip, hard, until it locks in place.


  2. Loosen 2 brake-asssembly-and- bar retaining nuts but do not remove yet.


  3. Unscrew (turn CCW) bar adjustment screw on front face of unit in order to shorten bar and slacken saw chain.


  4. Slip chain off bar over bar tip and towards inward side of bar.

2002 yz 125 when I put it in gear it will shut off acts like the clutch is not working when I adjust it on the handle bars it slips


Mechanical issue: clutch not disengaging completely...
engine off - put in gear and roll back and forth with clutch released does engine stop the bike from rolling? Now pull clutch lever in and try rolling again is clutch cable adjusted properly?
Electrical issue: bike thinks clutch is still engaged and kills motor when not in neutral
Is the clutch switch properly connected and working? Is it adjusted properly? Use a multimeter to read resistance across switch contacts does it change state when clutch is pulled in?

932 ariens shuts engine down as clutch is engaged to throw snow


Your problem would be in a safety shutdown switch.
some Ariens blowers have a two handed safety switch whitch is located on back of blower right lower side (inside of body)
You have to remove 4 transmission pan bolts to see it.
The other location is under the metal face plate between the handle bars.
Some of them have a third handel on right side of handle bars that has to be depressed to run auger .

Chain does not rotate around bar. Chain brake seems to engage/disengage as intended.


With a gloved hand can you manually pull the chain around the bar? if not the chainbrake is still engaged, pull the hand guard fully back to the top handle until you hear the click from the brake mechanism, if the chain does pull around manually then there is a problem with either the cluch or the sprocket, remove the side cover, check the clutch for damage, remove the drive sprocket and check the drive teath are not badly worn allowing the chain to slip within it, replace parts as required.

Can't get the clutch on a suzuki 800 intruder to hold pressure


Oil should be 10W40 SF or SG grade. Anything else will cause the clutch to slip. There must be freeplay on the clutch cable (0.4-0.6in). Adjust handle bar clutch lever screw all the way out then adjust at gearbox end and revert to handle bar adjustment for fine adjustments. If this does not solve the problem take the clutch apart and measure driven plate thickness (3.12in minimum for the 1st plate and 2.62in minimum for the others)
Measure clutch spring free length. There are 2 sets (4 springs each). 0.97in minimum and 0.92in minimum respectively.
A slipping clutch is caused by incorrect friction, that is incorrect oil or insufficient pressure. Pressure is supplied by the springs on the discs and driven plates.
If the discs, driven plates or bucket is worn it will cause slippage.
If you pull in the clutch and it disengages but starts to re- engage after a short period you will need to replace the clutch master cylinder seals.

Rattle and slippage when engaging clutch, only when hot after a ling ride. does not rattle or slip at all when clutch is fully engaged.


Clutch plates may be worn. You would have to pull the side cover to inspect them. Honda clutch's always rattle at an idle when in neutral. If you just pull in the clutch lever the rattle will go away. Let the lever out and it will rattle again. As for the slippage, if your clutch cable is binding at all it will keep the clutch from fully engaging when you release the handle. This will cause the clutch to slip for a second or two until the cable fully releases from the bind. Any resistance in the cable and you should replace it.
