How to free up clutch on honda shadow

if it stuck from being stood that's due to corrosion on the clutch plates the steel plates rust and stick to the friction plates,two ways to do it
1st is to start the bike get someone to give you a good push then put in in 1st gear,hold the clutch in and open and close the throttle quite quickly ,hold on as it will jerk about a bit and possibly wheelie.that should do it if it doesn't
2nd,Take the clutch cover off and undo the clutch bolts that hold the pressure plate on and manually separate the plates ,clean them up with some fine wet and dry sandpaper and re assemble it..

Wont shift while engine is on

First thing to check is that the clutch master and slave cylinders are working normally, does the clutch lever feel normal? If the feel is normal then keep reading, if not fix it first. Has the bike been sitting for a while? If so the clutch is likely stuck. To un stick it with the engine off put the bike in high gear, hold the clutch lever in, and rock the bike forward and back, with any luck after 2 or 3 bumps you will be able to push the bike with the clutch held in. If you are unsuccessful this way you can hold the clutch in, sit on the bike and hold the brake, then bump the starter. Caution if the clutch does not free up the bike will move forward, be ready for it. If neither one of these methods work the only thing left is to disassemble the clutch to free it up.

Sticking clutch plates

Be sure you are using the correct weight of engine oil. Too heavy a viscosity will cause the problem you mention. In addition, it could be the clutch cable sticking rather than the plates. Have you lubricated that cable lately? Does anyone even do that any more?

The clutch wont diengage

Might be time for a Clutch Slave Rebuild.

Has the Bike sat for many months? Sometimes the Clutches stick together because the oil , like, suctioned them together.
You can start the bike, hold in the clutch and kick it into first gear. It may stall out a few times but usually that will free up the clutches. Careful , the bike will lunge foward as yo kick it into gear

Troubleshooting for laverda motorcycles

Did your bike quit whilst it was running, or is the problem that it won't turn over on the starter when you try to start it?Position 1 of the ignition switch should allow the starter to be operated and the engine to fire up. Position 2 is for parking lights only. The ignition switch can suffer poor internal contacts with age. It may have been replaced with the wrong type of switch if you say it turns over in position 2. Have you checked the fuses? If they are OK, try bypassing the ignition switch completely.If you are running the original ignition, the control box under the tank can fail. Check that there is a spark on all three plugs. THEY ALL MUST BE KEPT EARTHED when turning the engine over to avoid destroying the ignition module.

Hey I have a 1985 rm 250 and its been siting for about 3 months with all fuilds removed ....I have cleaned the carb and other areas on the bike ......but when I reset up the cluch it is stuck ingaged and...

a clutch sticking on after storage is not unusual. i find that if i put the bike in 2nd gear, pull the clutch lever in and rock the bike back and forth quite hard a few times that the clutch will free off. just make sure that the ingintion is turned off, or the lead is removed from the spark plug, to make sure that the bike cannot start. this has never failed me yet, and some of the bikes i have done this with were stored for quite a number of years. hope this helps

Having problems with clutch ajustment of laverda 1980 model... please help

Jo - you need to explain what problems you are having!! The 1980 model had a cable operated mechanism. Vital that the clutch cable is smoothly routed with bends as big a radius as possible. Lubrication of clutch lever pivot and cable is vital too. Handlebar adjuster should be used to leave a small amount of slack. If the problem is getting the clutch to free off, then if the bike has been standing for a long time the plates can stick together. Have an answer for that...

Drive shaft noise

when i back it up or move it forward when it is in nutral,, i cant hear it when the bike is running nor can i feel it when im ridding only when the bike is off and i roll it forward or backwards any ideas on whats wrong?,check the final drive lube level, make sure that's good. if that's ok then the problem probably is a worn worm gear that only makes noise when its moving slowly. To make sure its the drive and not tranny itself, see if it makes the same noise in 1st with the clutch in rolling it around. ,,,
