Make sure you've bled all of the air out of the clutch assembly. You should feel positive resistance when the clutch is engaged.

SOURCE: 94 suzuki 800 intruder. clutch splips in

No adjusting is possible.
Slip can be caused by several defaults:
- Wrong engine oil ( SAE 10w-40 API SE or SF only )
- Weak clutch springs ( free spring length : 34mm ( 1.34in ) MINIMUM
- Worn clutch disk 2(internal teeths ) ( wear limit 3.15mm ( 0.124in ) ) This is the last disk, against the clutch center
- Worn clutch disks 1 (internal teeths) ( wear limit 2.62mm ( 0.103in ) )
- Clutch plates ( thikcness between 1.55 and 1.65mm / 0.0610 and 0.0649 inches
- Damaged pressure plate ( cracks round the spring holes )

To check the clutch parts, the right engine cover must be removed.
Take attention while loosening the clutch spring bolts!
Drain engine oil, and set engine into first gear ( this locks the clutch for an easy loosening of the spring bolts )

Hope it helps

SOURCE: Should I adjust my valves? 1999 Honda Shadow Ace.

Well if its running good and you don't here any out of the ordinary rattling I wouldn't worry about it until at least 25,000-30,000 miles on the bike so probabley in another 10,000 miles or so have the valves adjusted unless you hear any unordinary rattling noises sooner then go in at that point and have them adjusted.

SOURCE: I have a 2004 Honda

Adjustment is made at clutch end first and then fine-tuned at the handle bar end. Adjust at clutch end until there is no free play on the lever. Then slack off the nut a quarter turn. Test clutch operation and adjust at the lever end if nescessary. Remember to lock the nuts at the clutch end.

I changed my clutch on a 83 vt750c honda shadow and now it's stuck in gear any suggestions why this is.....please help lol


Hi,I dont know why this is,but its a pain when this happens,
if the gears where working before you changed the clutch assemberly,I would sujest that you strip it back down again and carefully put it back together again,but this time when you put things back make shore that on each job you do that you can still selct the gears.
all the best.
