Question about 1980 Suzuki GS 750 L
1980 suzuki gs 1100 L inline 4 cyl. the fuel was leaking past the carbs. and into the motor / trans fluid . I've resolved this problem , however , now the clutch is engaging and making the bike want to move forward with the clutch lever in .The bike wants to stall because to keep her from rolling forward I have to apply the brake and increase the rpms . Also the gear shifter is very hard to change in the lower gears. I think maybe clutch was contaminated with gas and hence the problem . The clutch was working fine until the gas went into the base of the engine . The oil was drained and replaced with new but I still have this creeping problem at idle speed . Can anyone offer a solution . Many thanks
If your clutch is adjusted properly, it should not be doing that anyway, even if it is contaminated with gasoline. make sure clutch is properly adjusted, and if that doesnt work you made need to remove the clutch plates and clean them and lightly sand them to remove the fuel from the composite plates, fuel on them will make clutching operation jerky. they will clean themselves over time and a few oil changes if thats easier for you

When gas enters the crankcase the gas will wash the oil of the clutch plates. And if it sat faor a while the plates will stick together(usually rust) and not relaese properly. most of the time they will just work themselves out but if not you will probably need to pull the clutch pack and inspect them. And if your bike has a lot of mile then while it is apart it would be a good idea just to replace them
