How to adjust 95 geo tracker clutch


engaging?
you meant dis-engage im sure.
pedal up is engaged,
pedal at floor dis-engages it.
my guess, is the clutch drags unless i push the clutch pedal 100%
to the floor.
1: bad cable is 90% cause. non last this long.
2: no free play is way too loose.
3: broken lever on the pedal top. caused by #1

My 2003 ZX& jumps when I go from N to 1st, but if I start in 1st its ok


The clutch plates are dragging. This causes the clutch shaft to turn even when the bike is in neutral and the clutch is dis-engaged ( handle pulled in ). When the shift fork moves to engage 1st gear, the bike jumps due to the shaft rotation. When was the last oil change? Dirty oil can cause clutch drag. Also, are you using synthetic lubricants? Some of them can swell the cork on the friction plates and that swelling causes dragging. tombones49_286.gif

Won't go into reverse


sounds like the clutch is "dragging", could be adjustment if cable clutch, or leaking slave cylinder on hydraulic clutch, or the clutch it's self, normally first gear would be a little tight to engage too

John Deere 318 blades won't engage once it gets hot.


Check the clutch gap in the front of the machine (the one that engages the belt) by tightening or loosening three lock nuts around clutch. Tightening decreases gap/ loosening increases gap. Note: do not tighten too far as it will result in clutch drag or lockup! Stop when its just starting to touch then back off slightly. Also without a proper charge on the battery the magnetic power for the clutch is altered and not strong enough to engage clutch when hot. Find out why battery light is on.

2005 kdx 200 clutch not engaging properly


Assuming the clutch handle on the handlebar is adjusted properly, only three things will cause the problem.
  • Very dirty oil in the gearbox. The grit is causing the clutch to drag. Change oil, ride for an hour in the city then change oil again to flush out the grit.
  • Worn clutch lever (at gearbox). Lever is not moving the pusher far enough to fully disengage the clutch. A new lever would be needed.
  • Synthetic lubricant ( or oils with "special" additives), was put in gearbox. 10w40 motor oil should be used in the gearbox. Synthetics can swell the cork on the friction plates causing the clutch to drag. New friction plates will fix the problem.
The current amount of clutch drag is not enough to harness the power of an engine rev. That is why the clutch seems okay at higher revs. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

CCM 604e 2001..how to correctly adjust clutch cable, clutch drags


Turn the clutch adjustment bolt towards the clutch-lever surface all the way in-not too tight. Feel the lever pressure as crisp, engage the first gear, and see if the bike moves when you engage; stops when you dis-engage. Give the adjustment-bolt a couple outward turns, and see. Repeat procedure as necessary.

Engine stalls when electric PTO clutch is engaged


check your spacers to be sure you havent locked the clutch assembly directly to the motor shaft
you should be able to turn it fairly free less some clutch drag

What will stop the electric clutch from fully engaging?


Electric clutches usually work or they don't. You may simply need a new belt or there may be an idler pulley or blade spindle with a bad bearing causing excessive drag. I have seen idler pulleys go missing altogether causing extra slack in the belt. good luck, Chuck
