Hi, Colcww and the usual suspects are:
1. Clutch cable bent, kinked, pinched, rusted or needs lubrication.
2. Hydraulic clutch hose collapsed or pinched.
3. Improper clutch adjustment.
4. Clutch plates rusted.
5. Pressure plate or springs to heavy for service.
6. Damaged clutch shell.
7. Damaged, bent, or stuck push rod assembly.
8. Faulty worm gear mechanism.

SOURCE: Yamaha motorcycle stiff clutch

Disconnect the cable at the engine. Does the cable move freely when disconnected? If it does, remove the left side cover then check the operation of the clutch arm. Does it move freely and spring back freely? If not then clean it up. If it does move freely, remove the clutch push rod from the center case. Roll it on a flat surface. Does it roll smoothly or does it sort of lope along. If bent, replace it. If rolling smoothly then put it back in the center-case and remount the side casing. Lube the clutch cable and remount it also. The adjuster #23 should be screwed in until it is snug then back off the screw 1/4 turn.

Assuming no one has tinkered with the actual clutch and it was operating properly a few months ago or when it was put up for the winter, now is the time for an oil change. Dirty, gritty oil can stiffen a clutch big time. Drain the oil and refill with 10w40 motor oil. No synthetics or oils with "special" additives or friction reducers. No oil marked ECII. Just normal motor oil. Shell, Mobil, Pennzoil, etc., the major brands. Ride the bike for an hour or so then change the oil again. Doing this will flush most all of the grit from the gearbox. Hey, oil ain't that expensive. This should take care of the problem.

A “very helpful” rating on this answer? Thanks!

I have a yamaha 360 motor, in a flat track frame. Don't know what model it came in, it has a ser.#484. Any help would be great. Dale/ sondl7@aol.com


  1. Apply the Clutch
    • Pull the left-hand clutch lever back to engage the clutch for starting. Shift the engine into neutral by upshifting to the middle position on the foot peg on the left side of the bike.
    Insert the Key
    • Insert the key into the ignition and turn the key to the "on" or "run" position.

    Turn on the Fuel
    • Turn the stopcock on the fuel line to the "on" position to allow fuel to enter the engine of the 250 DT.
    Start the Engine
    • Fold out the kickstart lever and press down on it rapidly with your right foot until the engine starts. This may take multiple tries on a cold engine. Once the engine has started, rev the throttle to warm up the engine.

I have a 72 Yamaha LT2 100 what gear oil should i use?


20w40 motorcycle engine oil, the same as a four stroke motorcycle would use,
Not car engine oil as this can cause the clutch to slip.

Clutch push rod will not depress to engage


go to this http://www.cmsnl.com/yamaha-rt1-19701971_model8356/partslist/A-09.html and then click on "view big image", this will give you a diagram of the clutch etc,, the adjustment (No. 26) may need looking at, or (No.11,12,) have broken.Basically you turn 26 in (clockwise) untill you feel light resistance then back off 1/2 turn (been years since i worked on one of these!) this should give you freeplay, have you just got the bike?, and do you think it has been stripped lately(ie the clutch). PS I am not affiliated with the web site i offered above, just a handy reference for you maybe? cheers

Clutch not working


it may just be the fibers sticking. If the bike has been sitting for a while the fibers will dry out and stick. I would remove all of them, and while keeping them in order dip them into some clean oil and replace them one by one. Be sure to inspect all of them for damage or excessive ware. Good luck.
