Question about 1992 Suzuki GSX 1100 GN
If it will go into gear with the engine not running and won't go into gear with the engine running, you still have air in your clutch line. I suggest starting @ the clutch master cylinder and bleed the MC by cracking the banjo bolt loose @ the MC. Crank it loose no more than 1/4 turn after you pumped the lever a few times. After the lever hits the grip, tighten it back up and do it again Keep doing that till no air exits the system. Work your way down to the slave cylinder, bleeding the line at each junction you come to. If you still don't have good lever, the slave could be assembled incorrectly or the MC is not up to par anymore. If you have rubber lines on your hydraulic clutch, you can test the air in the lines theory by wrapping a rag several times around the line then pinch it off with a pair of needle nose pliers. Do this close to the master cylinder. If the lever gets hard instantly, you have just confirmed you have air in your lines. You can do the same test each staep of the way down to the slave cylinder. If you cross a point where all of a sudden you loose good lever, that is where the air in the system is. If you bleed all the way down through the slave cylinder and still don't get air, you could have an assembly issue. The other possibility is the clutch plates are stuck together. If the bike has been sitting for awhile, that is a high probability. To fix that, start the bike and ride it around in first gear with the clutch pulled in. Keep revving the throttle as you ride the bike slowly in a safe area away from cars, people and other MC. That may take awhile to do, the oil may have to come up to temp, so it could take up to 30 minutes.
