Hi Darren:
Have you a lot of slack in the lever before the clutch starts to compress? If so, you should be able to use the adjustment where the cable attaches to the lever. Back it off so there is less slack, thereby getting more compression of the clutch. If the clutch drags and the shift into gear is really harsh, it may be an idea to have it checked for worn clutch plates.

The clutch's plates must be stuck.Disassemble them and renew if necessary.The clutch lever should have 3mm freeplay and the spring's bolts should be tighten at 14Nm.

SOURCE: I had new front pads fitted to my ZX10r 06-07 when

Possibly 2 problems m8.
If the brake-lever travel has increased then it either wasn't bled up properly or it's allowing air past the seals in the master-cylinder.
Try tying the lever back to the bar overnight to bring any air in the system up to the top (resevoir) and see if the brakes stay good, if not they'll need bleeding again.
Check for any leaks around all the banjo connections, up at the bars and down at the calipers, plus have a close inspection of the master-cylinder piston area for leaks.
The juddering might be down to a warped disc or two, get the front wheel off the ground and spin the wheel to check for this visually or with a stick and pointer.

SOURCE: My 1999 Aprilia rs125, No clutch.

Nope. Pressure plates use mechanical springs which don't fail with this symptom. It's your pressure cylinders for the clutch fluid. Either the main cylinder that is activated when you squeeze the lever or the slave cylinder that moves when fluid is displaced from the main cylinder. Check the fluid level in the small tank usually located on the handle bar and connected to the lever housing. No fluid = source of problem. Refill with the proper fluid. However, if the fluid has gotten very low, you may have gotten air into the fluid line and will need to "bleed" the system to restore good lever pressure and clutch function. Buy a repair manual...Chilton, Clymer, etc.. for your bike for details.

SOURCE: Not enough play between clutch engagement. pull

check your master cylinder fluid level you have air in the line, you need to bleed out the air bubbles.
remove the master cylinder cap make sure yo uhave enough brake fluid pump the lever watch for fine bubbles keep doing it until you feel the resistance build up and the air bubbles are gone ad fluid to proper level replace the cap.

SOURCE: HAVE A 1999 SPORTSTER 1200C PULL MY CLUTCH LEVER

Well, the answer is yes and no. If you hear a clunk noise when shifting to first gear when the engine and transmission is cold, this is normal. Once the engine reaches normal operating temp, the answer is "NO", not normal.

In a cold engine, the oil is thick and even with the clutch pulled in, enough oil is between the plates to drive the mainshaft and cause the noise. Now. once the oil gets hot, it shouldn't do this. If it does, you need to adjust the clutch.

To adjust the clutch, find the cable adjuster in the middle of the clutch cable. Loosen the locknut and turn the adjuster inwards to get as much slack in the cable as possible.

Now, remove the derby cover, spring, and locknut at the clutch release mechanism on the outer primary cover. Inside the mechanism is a screw. Turn this screw as far as it will go clockwise but don't try to force it. Once it stops, turn the screw back clockwise 1/4 turn. Replace the "locknut", spring, and the derby cover over the release mechanism.

Now, go back to the cable adjuster and adjust it back outwards until you get about an 1/8" of freeplay. Squeeze the clutch a few times and check the freeplay again. Lock the lock nut and replace the rubber boot over the adjuster.

Good Luck
Steve

On a Honda Valkyrie do I shift down on 1 st gear or shift up


With the motorcycle in neutral pull in the clutch and push the shift lever down, it will go into first gear. To shift into 2nd gear, pull in the clutch and lift up on the shifter pedal and it will go into 2nd gear. Repeat the second step for third, forth and fifth gears.

1999 Honda F6 C Valkyrie starter spins but won't engage


Hi, Anonymous the starter drive/Bendix/clutch is a mechanical gear driven component that engages the clutch pack ring gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed, it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.

My honda valkyrie stalls when shifting from neutral to first gear wile still holding down the clutch


Hi, Anonymous the ignition circuit cut-off system comprising of the side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral switch has the following functions:
a. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is up, but the clutch lever is not pulled.
b. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the clutch lever is pulled, but the side stand is still down.
c. It cuts the running engine when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is moved down.
Periodically check the operation of the ignition circuit cut-off system according to the following tests.
With the engine turned off:
1. Move the side stand down.
2. Make sure that the engine stop switch is set to "RUN"
3. Turn the key to "ON".
4. Shift the transmission into the neutral position.
5. Push the start switch if the engine does not start the neutral switch may be faulty.
With the engine still running:
6. Move the side stand up.
7. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
8. Shift the transmission into gear.
9. Move the side stand down if the engine does not stall you may have a faulty side stand switch.
After the engine has stalled:
10. Move the side stand up.
11. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
12. Push the start switch if the engine does not start you may have a faulty clutch switch.
This check is most reliable if performed with a warmed-up engine.

I have a 1999 Honda CBR 600 f4 and recently it won't start while in gear. Before, I could start it while I gear with the clutch lever pulled. Now it only starts while in neutral. Any ideas?


the neutral light, side stand switch and clutch switch are all wired together.
If the neutral light works.then check the side stand cut out works as normal, finally check the micro switch under the clutch lever, it should make a tiny click when the clutch is activated, also check it with a multi meter, follow the wires back to the plug and check the resistance goes from 0 to 1 with the clutch pulled

Hi, I have a 1995 GL1500 and it has a slight light rattle at idle when hot. It has covered 55000 mls, i have checked valve timing and carb balance all seems good. bike runs perfect except for noise, any...


Does the noise stop when in neutral with the clutch handle pulled in? If so it may be normal. I have a 1999 Honda Valkyrie (has the same engine setup as your wing) and it is noisey with the clutch handle released at idle, but the noise goes away when the clutch handle is pulled in.

Another thought.......Have you recently adjusted the valves? If not they may need adjusting.

Hope this helps.
