SOURCE: Clutch squeals when disengaging... HELP!

The clutch may have overheated in the past. I had a similar problem at about 1,500 miles because of stop and go traffic in 95 degree weather. The plates heat up and glaze over as they slip. I installed an open clutch cover on the same bike and I am now at 6,000 miles with a non squeeling clutch pack.

SOURCE: clutch wont disengage properly

What kind of oil is in the crankcase? Wet clutches take a sprcial oil, noy motor oil. If oil is correct, Is the cable and release levers fully disengaging the clutch? There is an adjustment for the rod inside the clutcjh hub . That could be short stroking.

That is more than enough movement. Most probably don't move half that much. All they have to do is release the spring pressure from between the plates.

If you put synthetic oil or an oil with "Special" additives in the gearbox the cork on the fiber friction plates may be swollen. The swelling can cause the clutch to stay engaged, Only use standard 10w40 motor oil in the gearbox. You will need new fiber friction plates if that is what has happened. Normally the only other three things that would cause the problem are a worn shift arm, a bent push rod and a badly worn cable.

New clutch not disengaging


When I do clutch jobs. I replace the clutch package(comes with the slave) and the master cylinder also. Have the flywheel turned or replaced. Just a note. The clutch plate can be installed backwards. No matter how many times you bleed it, It won't work.

If I adjust the clutch to disengage properly then it slips, if I adjust it so that it does not slip then it will not disengage completely, I had a new clutch installed, can there be too many discs?


There are line up marks on pressure plate and the clutch basket these need to be inline.If these marks are not lined up the adjustment will be way off and clutch will not engage or disengage properly.the only other problem it could be is possibly is when old clutch was removed the was a plate left behind and thats why the clutch wont adjust properly.Hate to say but the only way to be sure is to open it back up and see how many friction and thrust plates are in there.Find out from your local dealer the exact # of friction and thrust plates the bike should have.Last it could be the wrong clutch kit completly which may not have the right thickness plates.Good luck.Hope this info helps you.

Cluch not woking everything outside is working so something inside not working


Remove the right side cover and check the operation of the side case clutch lever by looking at it from the inside. If it is operating freely and the cam on the arm that pushes the clutch release pin is not worn out, the problem would be the fiber friction clutch plates. Did someone use synthetic oil in the gear box? Oil with "Special" lubricants? These can shrink the cork on the plates and cause the clutch to slip. Some synthetics can swell the cork and cause the clutch to grab and not disengage. If swelling or shrinkage of the plates has happened then the repair is to install new plates. Potentially, grooves may be worn in the inner and/or outer clutch hubs. This would prevent proper operation of the clutch. The repair there is new clutch inner hub (if worn), or clutch outer hub as needed. A worn needle bearing could also be the cause if the clutch will not disengage. Please post a reply if any more info is needed. An exploded view of your clutch can be seen at the website below. Please take a moment and rate my answer.

Clutch


new procut basket and barnett plates. Had to file the barnett friction plate tangs they all slide but are a tight fit. All plates installed carefully per the Barnett instructions. Started the bike in neutral all fine shifted into 1st clutch in, I feel the bike want to creep forward although just slightly (I can hold it with my feet down). Can't get to neutral again with the clutch in until I shut the bike off. So, just before I go back in and pull a plate out to make the clutch pack smaller, i wondered whether anyone here has had this problem and whether if I ride it like this for a short while whether the clutch pack will settle in and fully disengage?,A too-high overall thickness of the plate stack will cause drag between plates when the clutch is disengaged making it difficult to select neutral when the bike is stopped. The last 2mm steel plate can be interchanged with a 1.5mm curved plate facing away from you if you want to adjust the stack to get the 38mm stack thickness, or if you want a more progressive, soft clutch engagement. A commonly-used substitution that adds an additional spring plate to the stack. Any of the steel 2mm plain plates can be exchanged with 1.5mm plain plates to reduce stack thickness or increase stack thickness as needed to achieve your desired overall height. You will see the need for this as friction plates wear, so keep your steel plates from pervious clutch replacements as spares to be used as height adjustments later. The 2mm and 1.5mm steel plates only need replacing if they’re scored or warped.,,,
