Question about Honda XL 125 R Motorcycles

1 Answer

Hello, My 1979 XL185 R is starting to have a clutch slip at 40 MPR under full throttle. Does it have a wet or dry clutch? In addition to the clutch plates should the clutch springs be normally replaced? Also anything else to look for as i try to do this job? THANKS, Ron

Can i use lucas oil stabilizer in a wet Clutch motorcycle i have a qlink legacy 250cc


I wouldn't. You only need to use motorcycle oil for a wet clutch. No other additives are needed. Change your oil every 3k miles or once a season. Do not use regular car oil as most of them have additives (friction modifiers) that will make a wet clutch slip when you don't it too.

Is the oil for the Boulevard semi Synthetic or full Synthetic


Either oil will work, check your owners manual, it may say what came with it. If in doubt use full synthetic. You can't go wrong in doing that.

BE CAREFUL WITH THE OIL CHOICE. SOME HAVE ADDITIVES THAT CAUSE THE CLUTCH TO SLIP, SPECIALLY WITH HIGH POWER ENGINES.

I just changed the oil in my Honda 750 Shadow and switched to Synthetic Oil. As you mentioned this could cause the clutch to slip. Wel it 's slipping. What's the fix?


I'm assuming that you have a "wet" clutch, unlike most cars that have a "dry" clutch. "Wet" means that the clutch sits in the engine oil, "dry" ... that it doesn't!
It's very important that you use only oil specifically made for motorcycles if you have a wet clutch, synthetic or not. The formulation of the oil-additives is different if it is to be used with clutches.

Using "normal" "car" oil, whether it is synthetic or not, is highly likely to result in clutch slip.

If this is what has happened then I can only suggest this course of action:
> Drop that oil out and replace the oil filter
> Refill with cheap motorcycle oil
> Drive for 10 or so miles, get the engine nice and warm
> Drop that oil out
> Refill with cheap motorcycle oil again and drive 10 miles
>> Hopefully at this point the clutch slip will be gone
> Drop that oil out and change the oil filter.
> Now fill with "nice" motorcycle oil

Best of luck :-)

Hi Anonymous, if you have a carburator the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system (gas cap).
2. Inlet system air leak.
3. Vacuum piston malfunction.
4. Accelerator pump leaking or no output.
5. Plugged bowl vent.
6. Fuel level (float chamber) too low.
7. Restriccted fuel supply passages.
8. Plugged jets or passages.
9. Worn or damaged needle or needle jet.
10. Enrichner valve not seated or leaking.

What oil do i use in the engine


Use any motorcycle oil that has the JASO MA rating. 10w-40 for cold climate .20w-50 for warm climate/touring. Do not use any oil that says Energy Conserving it will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears(wrong additives). Synthetic oils will help your bike run cooler and shift easier.

Clutch slips when rainning


You don't check the fluid like that! it should not be full up to where you can feel it. there is a screw plug possibly a bolt into the side of the gearbox you take this out and fill it from the side once the fluid start to come back out it is then full. make sure the car is sat on the flat. also you may need to bleed it through now as it's been over filled. on top of the gearbox there should be a slave cylinder a part with what look like brake pipes coming from it, this is most likely the fault the car had to start with. Bleed it through if no joy then you will most likely need a new slave cylinder.

Please get back to me if you are unsure of anything.

HI I OWN A 1998 R1 IF I USE A 15/40 OIL AS A TOP UP OIL, WILL THIS MAKE MY CLUTCH START TO SLIP. MANY THANKS MARC


Not at all, mixing the weights of oils usually isn't too big of a deal if it is in small quantities. Be sure to use Motorcycle specific oil though because automobile oil does not have the additives needed for a motorcycle's wet clutch.
