Question about Laverda 1000 Jota Motorcycles
I am having problems with sticking plates of my motorcycle. Apparently every item of the sistem is runnin ok , but when the bike is stoped for 3 or 4 days the clutch does not work. Please help me
Be sure you are using the correct weight of engine oil. Too heavy a viscosity will cause the problem you mention. In addition, it could be the clutch cable sticking rather than the plates. Have you lubricated that cable lately? Does anyone even do that any more?

hi m8,, undo the clutch reservoir,put a few rags arround the tank ,leave the cap off, then undo the clutch piston housin, so in your hand the clutch piston,, pump the lever a few times till u see the piston move out,, dont over do it,, once the piston has moved out enuff, replace it back on the bike,, maybe a little harder putting the housin bolts bk in without pushing against the housing,, as u push it in ,u might get a bit of fluid pop out the reservoir,, top up clutch fluid if needed,, replace cap,, this should do it,cheers

Do not try to out engineer the engineers. Do not take a drill to your clutch. Just put 10w40 in the crankcase and see if that takes care of the problem. How good is your clutch cable? Lubricated it lately?

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

You are saying that with the clutch lever pulled in the bike still wants to go forward. Generally that is caused by dirty, gritty oil in the gearbox. Go ahead and change the oil. 10w40 motor oil is what you want. I think that will fix the problem assuming the clutch plates were installed properly. The first plate installed and the last plate installed should be a fiber friction plate, 8 plates total. A metal pressure plate goes between each fiber plate, 7 plates total.
Be sure the lever assembly arm is installed so that it gets full movement of the clutch cable. If the full range of movement is not present then full disengagement of the clutch is not going to happen.
cape cod bob did you a good service in the manual referral. Be sure to say thanks.
