Hi, it sounds like your clutch friction plates have either worn out or, someone has put the wrong oil in it, some car oils make the clutch slip in high gears.

SOURCE: Clutch slipping while cold, when warm/hot, it operates great.

I have a 2000 Vulcan Nomad FI & had a very similar problem. In fact, it's a very common problem with these bikes. I fixed it by replacing the Clutch Spring. (As Described here: http://www.gadgetjq.com/clutch_spring_replacement.htm

It cost me $40 and 3 hours of time with an impact wrench.

SOURCE: transmission will not upshift between 3rd and 4th gear

It sounds like the shifter pawl might not be centered. This is located behind the clutch basket and is a pretty big job to get to, easy adjustment just a pain to get to. You will need a manuel to do it yourself.

SOURCE: 96 rm 250 clutch not working

Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx

Look at the clutch diagram on the Babbit's site. Chances are that the "E" ring #14 was not put on the clutch rack #13 that the pinion shaft #16 engages to pull the pressure plate #8 outward, disengaging the clutch. Without the E-ring the rack can fall inside the clutch and is unable to pull the clutch plates apart. This is likely to be where the problem is. By the way, look at the sequence all the parts are to be installed in. Does your clutch assembly match that sequence? Let me know what you find.

SOURCE: 1991 rm 125 clutch springs torque

The clutch springs are not the problem. Check to see if all parts were installed as shown below. The clutch plates alternate Fiber/steel/fiber/steel, starting and ending with a fiber. Be sure the teeth on the clutch rack are pointing to the rear.

My 2005 r6 had all maintenance done chain and sprocket . new clutch and brakes but when i'm riding 3rd gear seams like the chain is slipping off then catching and when it catches it jumps to a high rpm ....


It sounds a lot like 3rd gear and shift fork need replacing, it seems a very common problem on the r6, jumping to a higher rpm would mean it is jumping out of 3rd and back to 2nd.
There is a slight possibility the spring and ball, that locate the shift drum,isnt holding it in gear.

Gears slipping


Sounds like early stages of a worn out clutch slipping under load. If it is, make sure in the future to always take your foot completely off of the clutch pedal once in gear, or you will be replacing it again. In other words Do Not Ride the Clutch. Eventually you will have trouble going up hills, even in first or second.

2001 suzuki rm 250-Clutch feels like it is grabbing to much only from a stop?, it's making a weird noise when the clutch is being disengauged and sometimes stalls. checked clutch plates and basket and...


I have the same bike doing the same thing, I think this problem is caused by running regular or synthetic motor oils intended for cars rather than using motorcycle specific 10- 40wt. Motorcycle specific oils have friction properties that support long life of the friction plates in your clutch, regular motor oils can cause your friction plates to heat up and glaze over. I think That's what gives you that grabby all or nothing feel when taking off from a stop.

Clutch slipping


I had the same problem with my Yamaha 650. Either the clutch cable is misadjusted or you are using the wrong oil. Since the clutch assembly and all that is built into the crankcase, you need motorcycle oil. Are you using motorcycle oil or regular automotive oil.

Im sure there could be more serious issues, but I would check these first.

Good news > save your money on the clutch. Bad news > Invest it in new shift forks. What you describe is a standard symptom of bent shift forks. Sorry to be the one to tell you this.

Clutch is slipping on my 1995 BMW 318ti


to be fully honest if its doing this its wont be nothing to do the the fluid, the clutch plate will be sticking on the shaft untill you get it upto a higher speed,, that means you will need a complete clutch fitted, because as its slipping it is burning the clutch plate away,, you have new clutch fitted and car will be great. . playing away with things only makes matters worse and time comsuming ..

Gear/clutch problem


does not seem like the waterpump. is the clutch set too loose?
usually in wire based clutches, if the clutch cable is set to be too loose, or if it is frayed, and needs replacement, the bike will jump and stall.
check that.
