1st and easiest is to check your clutch reservoir for low fluid. Also check to see if it is dark or dirty (may mean junk has clogged it). Hope that helps with limited info.

SOURCE: Clutch Lever

AND has a cheaper list price or did I dream that ?You can buy patern levers for much less than the Aprilia one. problem you may have is getting the little brass adjuster out of the old lever. For some strange reason it does not come with the lever. It is a bugger to remove and if you do not set it right then you can get clutch slip.,,

Do a gearbox oil change. Then do another one 50 miles later. This should flush out the dirt and grit currently in the gearbox. You may want to invest in a new clutch cable also. 10w40 motor oil.

SOURCE: Clutch bite is too far away from handlebar

There should be about 1/8" end play on the clutch handle. Adjust the cable at the handlebars where the cable goes into the clutch lever housing. Screw the adjuster inward until the end play is present. Some bikes have an adjuster at the gearbox where the cable hooks up.

SOURCE: 1999 1400 intruder does'nt have any pressure when engaged.

Maybe, and maybe not. If it is a problem with the master cylinder, then it could be bleeding back into the reservoir.

If it will not pump up and pressurize, and there are no signs of a leak, then you need to look at the master cylinder.

SOURCE: How do you adjust the travel of the clutch lever,

You need to get a manual for your bike...you should have adjustment behind the clutch cover. Might need to change the fibers and steels of the clutch.

note it is in the clutch kit
and no other reason to explain the poor clutch grab

a clutch kit required

Clutch biting point very high on peugeot 206sw 1.4dhi it it about to fail


The reason for the high biting point is simple. The clutch is made of 3 main components.
The pressure plate friction plate and the release bearing.
The more times clutch is depressed the concentric spring fingers wear in 2 ways . Firstly by good old metal to metal rubbing and secondly the concentric spring fingers don't return as far as a new one causing the release bearing or csc to adjust .
When the pressure plate concentric spring gingers wear they don't sit proud and require more pedal effort to depress. .
When they loose there spring like feature they require a greater distance from the release bearing. Or it has to travel further to depress them to lift The pressure plate and fee the friction plate from the lay shaft on which it is splined onto to give you drive once released.
The further back the bearing has to travel to allow the fingers to clamp the pressure plate to the friction plate . The more the clutch has become worn and unserviceable.
Self adjustment on hydraulic clutches are a hard one to gauge as you have no idea how far the piston has moved out to compensate for this wear . With a cable you can physically see the wear and adjust .
High biting points on any car are useless. You want a biting point to be 2 to 3 inches from the top and not nearly level with the brake pedal.
Anyway it seems apparent that Peugeot and Citroen both have high to almost no point at which they bite .
I myself would modify this as an engineer.
But it seems to be normal on these cats to have absolutely no biting point worth talking about.
My sisters 2012 206 1.4 is a very high biting point and I myself would not be happy with it . It gives u no indication of a worn clutch if its self adjusting.
Alll hydraulic clutches are self adjusting. So why are Peugeot and Citroens sooo high. Its ridiculous.
A very idiotic idea and I'm taking it back with her and I'm complaining. Hopefully I should get somewhere and ill update you all

Peugeot 505 1990. No resistance at clutch pedal. Hydraulic fluid ok to cylinder at flywheel. Removed this hydraulic cylinder and lever going to clutch itself. This leaver has little or no spring? I am not...


replace the clutch master. clutch master is a set of springs and rubbers located inside your hydrovac that is responsible for pushing your clutch fluids

How do you adjust clutch on 1994 Honda 1000F CBR


Hi there,

CBRs have hydraulic clutches and therefore are adjustment free/cannot be adjusted.

If you are getting some slip, change the clutch fluid for synthetic oil. If this still does not help, it might be time for new clutch plates. Maybe go for kevlar or carbon if you're flush to help reduce the chances of slippage.

If you just want to adjust the clutch lever, you can by unscrewing the little lever on the clutch lever and bringing the lever closer to the handlebars. This will have the effect of changing the biting point (but really it is the lever that has moved).

I hope this helps you and please vote for me if so. Thanks.
