SOURCE: when i am in 3rd

If it's the original 1996 clutch I'd be surprised if it wasn't slipping. If the clutch & clutch springs are actually still good & working properly, make sure the oil you're using doesn't contain any "friction modifiers". AMSOIL & other companies make synthetic lubricants without friction modifiers. If your oil or an oil additive has friction modifiers, just drain the crankcase and replace the oil with the proper stuff and that may well cure the problem. Replace the filter too.

SOURCE: Hi,my 1997 V-Max has got either a clutch or gear

The coggs between the gears are worn, no simple fix. you just cant get on it very hard. And if you do it will strip out 2nd gear. In order to remove and replace the worn out gear you have to remove the engine from the bike, take off the upper half and split the case. and if youre going to go through all this trouble you might as well rebuild the whole engine. So I had a Vmax that 2nd and 3rd gear went out on me, (my heavy right hand and all) I could still ride it. the gas mpg was bad reving 1st till about 20 mph then skipping to 4th. But hey I put over 40k with it acting this way before I sold her and purchased anouther... Enjoy your beast and she will take good care of you

3rd gear SEEMS to slip


Either the clutch slips or the gear jumps out. Chech your free travel in the clutch lever the end should move an inch before feeling clutch tension.
Drain the oil from the gear case and observe any metal fragments. anything larger than powder is serious damage and will get worse.
Worn gears, bearings fragmenting will destroy all the transmission as the chunks circulate in oil.
Flush with a quart of motor flush , Naptha, or diesel fuel. and drain completely
. REFILL to mark with proper specified gear oil.

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.

Yamaha xt660x 3rd gear slips and then then grabs


Hi, Anonymous never use automotive oil it's not designed for motorcycles also the answer to this question is way above my pay grade and for this situation, I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry.

When i am in 3rd or higher gear and accelerate i can feel the clutch slipping. could it be the type of oil like i herd or is the clutch bad

Clutch is sliping on third gear and the lever is engaging almost at the end i i replace the push rod and the bolt in the middle of relese arm i loose out a little and is a little better there is any other...


Make sure you aren't using an incompatable oil, wet bath clutches need engine oil to be compatable. Most synthetics will cause slip in taller gears due to added load. Lower gears usually won't slip but 3rd and up will.

?3rd? gear it slips win power is applied


You should be admired for being able to tear into the guts of this bike, find a problem and fix it. Most guys would back away, and rightfully so if lacking mechanical ability and tools. Strange that only 3rd gear is affected. The only possible thing I can think of is to stick in new fiber clutch plates. The plates have been used for 22 years and thousands of miles. Time to replace them just on the principle of the matter. Post a comment on how things turn out!

Please rate this solution. Thanks!
