Question about 1981 Yamaha XJ 650
I dont have a manual for that bike, but i think there is an internal clutch adjustment that may help. if not properly set, the clutch will slip under a heavy load. if it does have the adjustment, it will be on one side of the engine and it should look like a 10 or 12mm nut with a set screw. loosen the nut and adjust the set screw one way or the other until there is NO tension on the screw. tighten the nut and then re-adjust your clutch lever for proper free play. if that dont work, install high performace clutch plates. again, im not certain that bike has the internal adjustment. take a look. hope this helps...
