Have you made any adjustments to the clutch cable at the lever?
This is basically the only clutch adjustment. If the adjustment is maxed out then it's time for a new clutch. Depending on your riding experience, riding conditions and total time since the clutch was replace or it not then since the bike was new, it's an item that needs to be replaced now and then just like the brakes.

If you know this great. If not read on.

If you intend to continue to own and ride this or bike you are going to want to learn as much about them as you can. This experience is just as important as riding experience. I have been riding my entire life and at least 1/4 of my off-road rides would have ended if not for knowing how to wrench on the bike anywhere.

Changing out a clutch is not difficult unless you have zero mechanical skills and no tools. But if you have basic skills and tools it should be no problem. The picture below is a diagram of your clutch, (under the clutch cover). It can be done in 3 to 4 hours.
Although someone with good mechanical skill could do it using just the diagram, my advice is buy a repair manual.

I really hope this helps but if not or the clutch is new and giving you these problems please let me know and I'll help from there.

No free play at lever? At least a quarter in needed and I would venture to say you just change the oil in it. ???

1995 Toyota Tacoma 3.4L 5-speed manual feels like 4x4 is not fully engaging.


check that the clutch is fully engaging by checking if there is free play at the throw out lever and clutch push rod . If you cannot push the rod back into the cylinder then the slipping is because the clutch is only partially engaged. Replace the clutch master cylinder if that is the case. If it is right then the fault will be in the pressure plat/ cutch plate and it may require a clutch kit.

Loping idle 1995 honda accord occurs when ac is on for a few minutes seems like the compressor clutch is engaging and disengaging it is a nuisance and the air doesnt blow as cold


bad compressor? (seizing) or
or engine is so weak, at idle (lean), that it cant run your compressor.
the reason for the lope is the ECU idle speed controls going crazy.
id say, the ISC is a victim here.

Rattle and slippage when engaging clutch, only when hot after a ling ride. does not rattle or slip at all when clutch is fully engaged.


Clutch plates may be worn. You would have to pull the side cover to inspect them. Honda clutch's always rattle at an idle when in neutral. If you just pull in the clutch lever the rattle will go away. Let the lever out and it will rattle again. As for the slippage, if your clutch cable is binding at all it will keep the clutch from fully engaging when you release the handle. This will cause the clutch to slip for a second or two until the cable fully releases from the bind. Any resistance in the cable and you should replace it.

Wire clutch adjustment


Pulling the lever releases the clutch. Disengageing it so you don't go. Ok, in order to engage the clutch fully, you release the lever and you must have at leas 1/4 inch free play.
If it is not going in gear easily, you probably have too much free play and you are not fully disengageing.. There is the possibility of an internal adjust ment Try the above and let me know how or if that works. Clutch lever pulled by closing your fist releases the clutch for shifting.

What will stop the electric clutch from fully engaging?


Electric clutches usually work or they don't. You may simply need a new belt or there may be an idler pulley or blade spindle with a bad bearing causing excessive drag. I have seen idler pulleys go missing altogether causing extra slack in the belt. good luck, Chuck
