Question about Yamaha WR 400 F Motorcycles

1 Answer

Yamaha 1998 wr400 dirtbike clutch dragging.

My 1998 yamaha wr400's clutch is dragging. The oil has been replaced, the basket has been replaced, the clutch cable has been replaced, and the friction plates, steels plates, and clutch springs have all been replaced.

The problem is still there. The pressure plate appears flat, and the pushrods seem straight. Any idea what it could be? It drags enough that when first started one must rev the engine when putting it in gear (with clutch lever pulled in) in order for the bike not to stall. When riding, if I come to a stop (again the clutch pulled all the way in) the bike will stall. The adjustments on the lever are adjusted so that there is the manual's recommended 2-4 mm of play before tension is felt. Maybe I am just adjusting it wrong?

I hope you guys can solve my problem so I don't have to pay a shop to!!

How do i change the oil on yamaha wr400f


Yes put the reccommented amount in, then start it and let it idle for a few minutes, then check the level.
Make sure it is four stroke motorcycle oil, car oils can make the clutch slip.
There is a second drain down the front down tube
