Question about 2000 Yamaha DT 125 R
The clutch of my dt125 is hard to sqiz, is it the cable is the problem or the lever itself because its a little bit short.
Disconnect the clutch cable at the side case. Now try the lever. If it is easy then the problem is not the cable. A short handle does make it harder to pull the clutch in. Get a new lever and hook the cable back up to the side case. If the clutch lever is still hard to pull in, try changing the gearbox oil. Dirt and grit can build up and cause the clutch to become stiff. If an oil change doesn't fix the problem after riding for an hour, get back to me by posting a comment.

Remove the cable and try to release it by using WD-40..spray it in between the outer and inner cable starting from any side,hold it straight down wards,spray WD-40(carefull as the oil has to pass inbetween outer and inner cable!) until you see the oil dropping out from below (i.e. the other end of the cable), thn try to hold the outer cable and move the inner one, it should now travel freely.
Yes too if the cable is short thn theres no much play for it to work smoothly.
Hope this helps!

Tombones49.. I have a dt175 1974... clutch is hard to pull in, and takes forever to come back out, its not the cable. I haven't changed the gearbox oil but do you know what else it could be?
