My clutch isnt working at all on a 1991 suzuki rm 125. I replaced the clutch plates and still nothing. cable seems good. I am wondering if i overtightened the clutch springs, and if that would be a cause of the probem? Any other ideas?

Re: 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.

could be a few different things,But always start with the small( inexpensive )first and work your way up...#1 check your clutch cable adjustment to be sure its engaging and disengaging properly(clutch cables stretch over time and need replaced or adjusted)...but if you have never done any clutch work to the bike(and you ride it like i do mine) #2. it probably needs new clutch plates and #3 maybe clutch basket from your description of the problem. the clutch plate fibers wear down over time(they are like brake pads and wear out).and the plates wear groves in the clutch basket and interfear with the plate movement...hopefully its just your cable..hope this helps..
First, try the cable adjustment at the lever end, if no more movement re-adjust inwards, then adjust at the clutch end.
If no joy, then it is either the lifter mechanism or the clutch its self.
1) Can you push the bike while it's in gear with the clutch pulled in? [If so, clutch is disengaging OK]
2) If not, check when you pull in the clutch lever that it pulls all the way through to the actual clutch [If not, replace broken clutch cable]
3) If so, clutch is binding. Either fix it properly by stripping the clutch.. or just brute-force the plates apart. :-)
Brute-force clutch plate separation: First make sure you have enough oil in the engine (wet clutch), then basically you're looking at either riding it with the clutch lever pulled in until the plates come apart or with the rear wheel in the air CAREFULLY running it in first gear against the rear brake while the clutch is pulled in.
Did you check the main crank drive gear i had a 96 rm 125 with that problem. Its a cheap fix if thats the case but the only problem is that the engine needs to removed and the case needs to be be split. If thats not the problem with the case split it should be ovious.
