If it has a clutch cable and not a pipe then you need to look at clutch assembly ,cause it could be that the clutch plate is put the wrong way in,thus not putting pressure on pressure plate or pressure plate is shot and needs to be replaced.If it is Hydro then it will have an hydro pipe and a container for brake fluid level

No Pressure in Clutch Lever on my Honda CRF450R after I changed the clutch plates. I would like to know if this clutch on my CRF 450 R is a hydrilic assisted or strictly cable activated. If it is hydrlic...

if it has a hydraulic reservior then it's all hydraulic. I would suspect you left something out like the proper number of steels and frictions. Or the rod or the... might also take a minute or two and bleed the system

I have a broken clutch bearing and icant find the spare

  1. Clutch Lever
    • As the clutch lever is operated over time, it gradually loses its grip on the clutch cable, weakening the clutch lever action until it barely moves the clutch plates. Maintain the clutch lever by ensuring the free play at the lever meets the specifications of the motorcycle's user manual, in which you will also find instructions on how to make this adjustment.
    Clutch Cable
    • Unlike the gradual onset of a clutch lever problem, the somewhat uncommon failure of a clutch cable is instantaneous. With little warning, the clutch lever goes completely slack and the clutch will be inoperable. Keeping a clutch cable well lubricated can prevent failure. However, in the event of a cable failure, a registered dealer should fit a replacement.

    Clutch Plates
    • Problems with the clutch mechanism itself normally manifest themselves in the gear change rather than in the applying and releasing of the clutch lever. Noise, chattering or slipping can be the result of misaligned or warped plates, leaks in hydraulic cables or bearings. Although more serious, if recognized early, these problems will be relatively inexpensive to repair.

The clutch is quit tight and the gear are not changing easily and not neutral.

well if the clutch cable is adjusted all the way in, then the clutch disc, and plates would need to be changed, especialy if its hard to shift in and out of gear while running. there should be two adjustments, a top lever adjuster, and a bottom lever adjuster. always adjust the clutch componets fron bottom to top.

How do you adjust clutch on 1994 Honda 1000F CBR

Hi there,

CBRs have hydraulic clutches and therefore are adjustment free/cannot be adjusted.

If you are getting some slip, change the clutch fluid for synthetic oil. If this still does not help, it might be time for new clutch plates. Maybe go for kevlar or carbon if you're flush to help reduce the chances of slippage.

If you just want to adjust the clutch lever, you can by unscrewing the little lever on the clutch lever and bringing the lever closer to the handlebars. This will have the effect of changing the biting point (but really it is the lever that has moved).

I hope this helps you and please vote for me if so. Thanks.

I put the bike in gear but when i pull the clutch lever in, it wont disengage and stays in gear??

if the clutch lever feels it has plenty of tension, it may just be the clutch plates stuck together from sitting.

Roll start it and ride around while holding in the clutch, vary the throttle, and they usually unstick. Give it an oil change when it warms up.

Hello, Clutch not disengaging properly

it looks like you have worn clutch plates very common on learner bikes. but do try to adjust the clutch cable first by winding the adjuster on the clutch lever. if this fails drain the eng oil and remove the left hand eng cover to get at the clutch plates. remove the springs by turning retaining bolts about 6 of them. then your clutch plates will slide out off the drum any bent steel plates even a little replace. any dark or burnt friction plates also replace, usually done all in one go and quite cheap to do . fit new parts in exactly reverse order dont forget new oil re set cable and off you go p.s also check clutch basket for tiny notches from plate wear if very little a gentle file will sort this

My transmission seems to not shift properly. I

forget the manual and throw it into back of garage ,now this expert ?? me only works on manuals because us spanish wouldnt give an auto box house room.Now if its not clearing properly when changing gear or its a job to get into first or reverse when stationary then its a new clutch job,some model cars have an adjustable clutch lever arm but if it gets to that stage where you have adjust it right out to get it to engage then its a new clutch time .Now hondas are not adjustable as such because they are hydraulic operated ,if it has clutch fluid then it sould work ok, but if the master cylinder is scored inside or the rubber is badly worn then could cause the problem ,get assistant to push clutch down and check movement on clutch arm ,if the arm starts to creep back when held down then the master cylinder needs changing ,but if it stays down then the clutch is worn even if it is not slipping ,the diaphragm spring clutch is going weak and the clutch plate isnt clearing ,or the clutch plate has heat distortion and its grabbing
