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.

Probably both.You definitely should open up the clutch side engine cover and take out the clutch plates and measure them to be sure.You must drain the oils before you do so.After inspection use new oil.

SOURCE: 1997 VULCAN CLASSIC WITH NEW CLUTCH SEEMS TO SLIP IN ANY GEAR

Any special oils or lubricants in the gearbox? Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. If in a hot area like Texas or New Mexico go with 20w50.

be7bdb4.gif If the clutch still slips then go to a different mechanic and have him adjust the clutch. The first guy doesn't know what he is talking about.

How do yo tell if clutch is bad, on 2000 750 susuki katana, feels like slipping at max speed on all gears.?


Find a long straight road that climbs fairly steeply get into top gear at about 40 MPH then try to slowly accelerate. If the clutch is slipping you will find that the revs increase but the speed does not. It is not a good idea to rev to the max in each gear it can damage the engine and gearbox. Have you checked the clutch cable and the adjusters also is the clutch release mechanism (push rod I think in your bike) working correctly. A poorly adjusted or damaged, un-lubed cable, with no free play at the lever will not help a clutch to operate properly. I would also have the clutch checked as it could be the friction plates are worn and/or the spring tension is incorrect. (Wrongly adjusted or weak springs will also not help the situation)

2009 ford mustang v6, standard, will not accelerate, no matter in which gear I am in why?


Sorry old son but your clutch sounds like it has gone to the big junk yard in the sky reserved for dead clutches . When a clutch starts to slip it will continue to do so until that is all it will do . solution a new clutch is required .

My 1995 sentra shifts fine in all gears but when i accelerate in 4th or 5th gear it the rpms wind up and the car doednt real respond feels like its in the accelerater do i need a new clutch


Sounds like the clutch is slipping. If the clutch is bad, it will slip in high gears (4th & 5th) but seem to work fine in lower gears. Clutch probably needs replaced but have a mechanic check it out first because it's a fairly expensive job. If your clutch is actuated via a cable (not hydraulic), it may just need adjusting.

Over-revving in 5th at 75mph all of a sudden


If the car rev'd up but did not speed up at the same time the clutch is starting to slip. Check the adjustment and recheck driving. When the clutch starts to wear this is how they act, only most people ignore whats happening and keep driving till adjustments won't fix it and the clutch has to be replaced. Have adjustment checked and keep an eye on it and hopefullty you won't need a clutch yet.

2000 saab 93. Slow acceleration out of gears, especially first.


Car picks up speed if you accelerate slowly, but the engine races, with minimal speed increase of the vehicle, when the throttle pedal is pushed harder? I'm not aware of the typical layout of the Saab, so while these things below are what I would suggest you look at... Not all will apply. Note that if the clutch plate is worn or otherwise slipping, the more you race the engine, the sooner will you burn off any remaining clutch life. Take things easy 'till you have a solution..... On any vehicle, this is a classic sign of a worn, damaged, or out of adjustment clutch. Or Possibly oil contamination from a leaking crankshaft rear oil seal. It causes a glaze on the linings of the driven plate and loses friction. Or The clutch pedal is not returning to it's normal rest position when released. Check for objects trapped between the pedal and the vehicle surfaces. Or The cable (if used)may be binding, thus the clutch doesn't fully return. It may be out of adjustment. Check for adjusting points at the cable ends. If no slack exists in the cable, it appears as though the clutch is worn. The clutch may be self adjusting. It's possible for self adjusters to seize. Or The hydraulic system (if used),has sticking cylinders. You may be able to clean and reuse the cylinders....

1999 Honda civic Ex 5 speed


It is possible that your clutch is slipping, causing the engine to rev high. Does it also seem to be lacking power, ie if you put your foot ******* the accelerator does it just rev up and not go any faster? If so, the clutch will need to be replaced. Take it to a garage and get them to road test and report to you if you are unsure.
Hope this helps, Mark
