Wet clutches need the proper oil. Is there any possibility it has the wrong oil?

My clutch is slipping,my bike want even pull itself. Someone told me to change my slave cylinder first befor I tear into the clutch plates,so would the bike even go into gear if the slave cylinder is


clutch plates need replacing , I would replace the steels as well and also change the oil and filter as it will be polluted with clutch dust.
Would also help to flush clutch fluid as well.

My 2004 1500 Vulcan Nomad will not stay in gear 2nd thru 4th gears? It started off as a momentary thing where when I went from 1st to 2nd it would go into a false neutral. now it won't stay in gear at all...


Always start with the easy (read cheap) stuff first. Make sure that the clutch is fully disengaging when in gear and engine running. If bike 'clunks' and lurches forward as soon as you shift into any gear, it may simply be that your clutch needs to be bled and/or adjusted so that you are fully engaging/disengaging the gear. More likely, however, the shift lever was subjected to a heavy foot resulting in the shift fork being bent. This prevents full engagement of the gear resulting in it popping out under load. Unfortunately, this repair requires a teardown. Continued operation with the tranny popping out of gear will round off the shift dogs and create an even more very expensive repair.

When I pull the clutch it will disengage ... but if I try to let out a little and pull it back it dose not fully disengage


Sounds like the clutch pack is having issues. If the plates are worn or warped you'll have the same type of issue. I would pull the clutch apart and check the plates.

2002 Vulcan will not stay in second gear


It sounds like a bad shift fork, shift drum or worn dogs on the gear itself. Very labor intensive. have remove engine from the frame and split the cases.

Hi, Kdompe357 and the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty wiring to any safety switch.
2. Safety switches loose at the mounting point.
3. Faulty kickstand safety switch.
4. Failed kickstand safety switch circuit diode.
5. Stretched side stand spring.
6. Side stand not coming up far enough to disengage switch.
7. Faulty clutch lever safety switch.
8. Faulty neutral safety switch.

2001 kawasaki vulcan 1500 will not go into gear


You have found the problem, that saucer spring acts just like the pressure plate on the clutch of a standard transmission on a car. I had to replace one, and it was about $35.00. Good luck
