I agree that this is likely a worn clutch issue. Still, several things to consider first: Did you try adjusting the clutch? Did you change oil brands or oil weight recently? Did you check the oil level? I have a '78 KZ750 and the motor oil is shared with the clutch. I've heard that some of the modern synthetic oils may cause problems with the clutch.

It sounds like your clutch pack is worn out. When you rev it up you heat up the friction plates between the clutch plates and it will grab because it gets hot.
One thing you can check before is clutch cable adjustment. hope this helps KC

Clutch will not engage on my 1978 kawasaki kz750


Try the cable first, remove it and form into a loop can you easily move the cable inner? Try crossing the outer cable ends about 6" from the top hold the cross and using finger pressure see how easily the inner cable moves. If stiff to move try lubing the inner cable until it moves easily if no joy get anew cable. Wen re fitting make sure you adjust the cable correctly and have enough free play at the lever

250 z kawa 82 ,runs but won't charge battery, has had battery connected wrong way. any ideas,has apprently been to auto elect, but no help.


It's possible that when the wires were connected the wrong way it could have caused a short in the electrical system that charges the battery. I'd suggest you change those first.

My 1980 kz750 ltd(G1) will shift into 1st and neutral but not into 2nd or any other gear, clutch is adjusted right and the clutch rod is in good shape, so...without a manual I'm not sure where to start. Is...


Hello and thanks for the question.
Keep in mind that Kawasaki has a lock out in the transmission that will not let the bike into second gear unless the bike is moving at least 15-20 mph. It will not shift into second gear while the bike is sitting still. If the bike is moving at that speed the lock out becomes inoperative. If you are riding the bike and it does not shift, you have a problem with the shift mechanism or in the transmission itself.

The shift mechanism is serviceable by removing the clutch assembly. The transmission requires major engine dissasembly and should be performed by a qualified technician.

Thanks and I hope that this helps,
Steve
