I just changed the oil in my Honda 750 Shadow and switched to Synthetic Oil. As you mentioned this could cause the clutch to slip. Wel it 's slipping. What's the fix?


I'm assuming that you have a "wet" clutch, unlike most cars that have a "dry" clutch. "Wet" means that the clutch sits in the engine oil, "dry" ... that it doesn't!
It's very important that you use only oil specifically made for motorcycles if you have a wet clutch, synthetic or not. The formulation of the oil-additives is different if it is to be used with clutches.

Using "normal" "car" oil, whether it is synthetic or not, is highly likely to result in clutch slip.

If this is what has happened then I can only suggest this course of action:
> Drop that oil out and replace the oil filter
> Refill with cheap motorcycle oil
> Drive for 10 or so miles, get the engine nice and warm
> Drop that oil out
> Refill with cheap motorcycle oil again and drive 10 miles
>> Hopefully at this point the clutch slip will be gone
> Drop that oil out and change the oil filter.
> Now fill with "nice" motorcycle oil

Best of luck :-)

Were you careful not to get your hands on the face of the clutch disc too much? Any indication of oil or grease around the disc, like from a leaking rear crank seal, when you changed the clutch?
Did you bleed the slave cylinder, to get all air out of the system?

If still no help, someone will have to troubleshoot it. A new clutch should not slip, especially with the flywheel polished to smooth.

Honda nifty bfifty clutch slip, how to adjust or is it oil filled centrifugal clutch, if so how do u fill


Hello David?
Motorcycles have what is called wet clutches. The clutch is bathed in the engine oil(crankcase oil ) To ck the adjustment, squeeze the clutch lever enough to take up any slack. There should be at least 1/4 in freeplay. If no free play the clutch will slip. Too much free play and the clutch won't dis-engage.after verifying free play, Take this part with serious thought. Wet clutches do not like motor oil. It causes the clutch to slip. So, If you have changed oil or have added any and it was not motorcycle engine oil, It is more than likely your problem. You will need to drain the oil and filter and put the right type into the engine. The clutch has np separate oil supply. Lever adjustment should be at the clutch lever clamp. Now what is this 50/50? Good Luck-

It should be the small plug up near the steering head with the dip stick, you need a small funnel, use only motorcycle oil, car oil can cause clutch slip.They hold about 1.1 litres . you then need to start it for a couple of minutes then check with the dip stick

Just changed my gear box oil on my aprilia rs 125 2000 model and my clutch is sleeping how do i fix this and how much will it cocst thanks josh


i sure hope you didn't use car oil but bought motorcycle oil. The clutch is a wet-type system that uses engine oil to keep it cool. Motorcycle oil is formulated differently than car oil, which has detergents in it to add lubrication and engine life that will cause a motorcycle's clutch to slip. A new clutch is both inexpensive and easy to replace. When you buy a new clutch, don't forget the clutch cover gasket. i recommend EBC clutches.
1. Set up a little pan with MOTORCYCLE oil in it and place the new clutch discs and pressure plates in it so that they get well-covered with clean oil.
2. Drain the oil, remove the clutch cover and remove the bolts on the cover of the clutch basket.
3. Remove the old clutch parts and make sure you pay attention to what the last part is (disc or pressure plate).
4. Install the new clutch, starting with the last part you removed and alternate between the discs and pressure plates until you run out.
5. Reinstall the clutch basket's cover plate and re-torque the bolts to the specified setting, using a cross-sequence like you would on a wheel.
6. Clean all the old gasket off, install the clutch cove and new gasket and fill up your engine with oil.
7. Ride away happy because you just changed your first clutch!

Hope this helps,
matt

1997 VULCAN CLASSIC WITH NEW CLUTCH SEEMS TO SLIP IN ANY GEAR


Any special oils or lubricants in the gearbox? Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. If in a hot area like Texas or New Mexico go with 20w50.

be7bdb4.gif If the clutch still slips then go to a different mechanic and have him adjust the clutch. The first guy doesn't know what he is talking about.

The clutch started slipping. is there a way to ajust it. what would cause it to slip if it not ajustable. it only has 14995 miles. the fluid was low. i filled it


Ah yes! The missing clue! You put more stuff in the gearbox. But what exactly did you put in it? Motorcycle engines do not do well using synthetic oil, or oils with "special" additives or "friction reducers". Drain whatever is in the gearbox and refill with 10w40 motor oil. Shell, Mobil, Quaker State. Any major brand will do. It may require a one hour ride and a second oil change to rid the gearbox of the synthetic. Clutch plates that swell are usually toast. Plates that just slip usually recover after awhile. Install a new oil filter. Look it up in the manual. See below.
