Question about 1974 Yamaha DT 360
My 1974 Yamaha dt175 enduro's clutch is not engaging. When the springs/cover is off, the pushrod comes out about 2cm when you pull the clutch in. But with everything assembled, it doesnt engage the clutch. Does anyone know what may be causing this? We have also messed around with the adjustment screw/ lock nut.
Also on the side, does and old bike like this need a battery to get any spark?
(p.s) I know its labeled as a yamaha dt 260, but its actually a 175 thanks.
I actuall have a yamaha enduro 100 and had this same problem.
First thing is take the clutch apart take all the rings out and clean them good with momry cloth assemble the clutch compleatly as it came out and when tighting the springs tight them all one turn at a time and after everytime you go around try to move youre clutch with youre bike in gear. if it trys to move it is engageing just keep turning the screws untill they stop. also recomend putting threadlocker on the drive gear bolt and the clutch bolt that holds the clutch on. if you have and questions just e-mail me at Jvossbrink@comcast.net just make shure to tell me that i responded to youre fixya question about youre bike and i will walk you threw it.
ps just rember to put the clutch pushrod back in
