Question about Motorcycles
All Original has less than 1000 miles since the 30,000 check. While on ride started sounding like baffels were removed ( they aren't ) by time got home running rough not sounding right (knocking) shut off. When I restarted it a couple hours later it started to smoke out of the bottom of the engine louder knock friend thought maybe cam looked for metal in oil didn't find any. I pulled plugs put in 1st gear clutch engaged hard to push. Where do I look next before I have to get into the engine?
Have you ever had changed, or at least have looked at, the cam chain tensioners?
These were an issue on the early Twin Cams.
If yours are original, I'd be surprised they lasted 30,000 miles!

the plates will stick to each other because of oil
check the clutch lever at the motor and make sure it is moving the arm that pushes the pressure plate and make sure it is moving

go to this http://www.cmsnl.com/yamaha-rt1-19701971_model8356/partslist/A-09.html and then click on "view big image", this will give you a diagram of the clutch etc,, the adjustment (No. 26) may need looking at, or (No.11,12,) have broken.Basically you turn 26 in (clockwise) untill you feel light resistance then back off 1/2 turn (been years since i worked on one of these!) this should give you freeplay, have you just got the bike?, and do you think it has been stripped lately(ie the clutch). PS I am not affiliated with the web site i offered above, just a handy reference for you maybe? cheers

It's a problem thats common in the Adventures and I think it has to do with the driveshaft set up. I generally let clutch out slighty when kicking it down to 1st and that does the trick. I dont think there's anything mechanically wrong, just one of those glitches in the design.
