Possibly
it indicates that the clutch is slipping from not being fully engaged, overheating and fading
check for the correct clearance at the cable end as the cable may be breaking internally and not allowing full engagement

    Clutch is actual not cable, DOT4 brake fluid. Plan was to disassemble clutch and slave cylinder to check springs and thickness of plates, etc.

    even better --replace the master cylinder as the compensating port is blocked preventing the fluid from returning to the reservoir
    as the fluid gets hot it pushes the clutches off making for more slip
    at best it is cheaper to start externally rather than to work on the clutch and you can always get to the clutch later

Hi, Daniel and the usual suspects are:
1. Clutch controls improperly adjusted.
2. Insufficient clutch spring tension.
3. Friction discs or steel discs are worn or warped

I just put a new slave cylinder and clutch master cylinder on a 2003 Honda accord 3.0 V6 six speed and you can shift the gears without the clutch pedal pushed in or the car started


that is normal if the gear synchro dogs ( teeth) are in line in the box
problems concerning a clutch are
slashing gears when trying to engage first or reverse with the pedal to the floor ---needs bleeding
slipping when the clutch pedal is released--- slipping clutch from the pressure not being released ---problem in master cylinder
reverse gear is the only gear not synchronised so even with the clutch depressed it is possible sometimes that it will not go into gear unless you let the clutch up to move the gears in the box then attempt to re-engage reverse

All gears from 1 to 5 are slipping. each gear


does the clutch lever release "sharply" and snap back after engagement? then lean bike over drain about a quart of oil, take off access cover to clutch and check to see if you have any broken clutch springs. if thats looks o.k. you"ll probably need new clutch plates. a real quick check when you ride the bike smell the oil, does it smell burnt? if it does, the plates are probably no good.

With the bike in gear and the clutch engage, the


Clutch discs are stuck, put the bike in gear, not running, pull in the clutch and push the bike back and forth to break the clutches loose. Once they break loose start the engine put the bike in gear, hold the front brake, and slip the clutch a little to remove any built up or stuck crud on the plates.
