Question about 2003 Yamaha YZ 125
Ok my 2003 yamaha yz 125 is riding fine but when im riding and go to stop it wont shut off n less it is totally stoped so i cant stop it when im moving at all it just keeps idolling but its trying and when i do stop if i use the brakes which is like always it will stall. So im thinking the clutch is to tight and if that is the case how do i fix it?????
This sounds like dirt and grit in the oil is causing the clutch to grab. Change the gearbox oil. Ride the bike for a couple of hours using the clutch often. Now drain the oil again and put in fresh oil. This will flush out the dirt and grit. Use 10w40 motor oil. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. Do not use synthetics or oils with "special" additives.
Other possible causes are > a need to adjust the clutch lever for 1/4" free play at end of the lever > warped clutch plates or friction plates > Clutch has been worked on and assembled wrong > low oil level in the gearbox > frozen clutch hub bearing > Incorrect clutch cable being used.
Please post a comment after the double oil change. The 2x oil change is a cheap way to eliminate a possible cause and hey, it isn't gonna hurt anything. If you still have the problem I can help with a clutch rebuild.
