Ktm 125 sx the clutch wont engage and disengage


You will need to slightly loosen the line where it goes into the master cylinder,...then squeeze the lever and hold it in...fluid should come out. While holding lever in,re-tighten bolt. You should get a lil bit of lever feel now. Making sure there is fluid in the resrvoir,...squeeze lever multiple times,and hold it in,....loosen the banjo bolt again,...slowly,..untill fluid rushes out. Then,..while holding lever in,retighten banjo bolt again. Check fluid,...then pump the lever multiple times again,and you should be getting some good lever feel now. After this,you may need to bleed the air out at the bleeder a couple times till alll the air is out.

I need to know how to replace the hydraulic clucth hose on my 1995 intruder motorclyce


Hi, this is a fairly straight forward job, first thing to do before you start, is get a feel for the lever as it is with the old line on and aim to get it to feel the same when the new 1 is fitted,
Lay your new line along side the old one to make sure it is the correct length, also the banjo on each end is the same shape and diamiter and thickness,
When you are ready to start, you must first remove the fluid from the cylinder on the left hand side of the bike, protect your paintwork with a suitable cover, remove the cap of the resovoire as this will allow the fluid to be drained, starting at the bottom have your new line ready insert new bolt fitted with sealing washer on each end, place a plastic tube over the bleed nipple on the slave cylinder and place other end into a container, undo the bleed nipple about 1turn and allow the fluid to. Drain from the system into the container, you may need to pump the lever in and out until all the fluid is removed, when you are happy all the fluid has been drained, have your correct spanner to remove the lower banjo bolt from the cylinder, place a cloth underneath the bolt when you undo it as you always get a small amount of fluid that will contaminate the paintwork, quickly remove the bolt to reduce spillage, using another small cloth push it through the open end of the now removed lower line thus sealing it with the cloth, quickly refit the new line the correct way on the lower end and clean away any spilled fluid later wash off, follow the old line taking the same rout with the new one and repeat the process at the top end, when fitted, replenish the fluid with the recomended, and then bleed all the air from the system, by pulling in the clutch lever with the lower nipple open and the pipe submerged in the old fluid to prevent air re entering the system from the lower end, a regular eye must be kept on the resovoir to maintain the fluid level at the top, any air entering the system from the top will mean re starting the bleeding all over, when you are happy all the air has gone from the system tighten up the bleed nipple, allow the system to rest for a miniute or two before you feel the clutch lever for pressure, warning replace resovoir top before pulling in the lever once the nipple is closed as fluid will hydralic from the top, if the feel of the lever is not as you wish you may need to manualy bleed by simutaniously pulling in the lever, with an open nipple, and a closed nipple before you release the lever, so, lever in nipple open, close nipple release lever, repeat two or three times, and recheck, replenish the fluid, good luck, paul

Why won't clutch wont work after changing oil


Hello,

You probably have air in the clutch system and will need to bleed it. The following will help you bleed the clutch system and should clear up your problem.

1) Remove the dust cap from the bleed valve on the Clutch Slave Cylinder.
2) Connect a clear tube to the bleed valve on the Clutch Slave Cylinder - make sure you have a long enough length of tubing so that you can put a loop in the tubing higher than the bleed valve to prevent air from entering the system.
3) Place the other end of the tube into a clean container and fill the container with enough DOT 4 fluid to keep the end of the tube submerged.
4) Clean the top of the Clutch Master Cylinder and remove the screw holding the cover on. Remove the cover and the diaphragm.
5) Check the fluid level, and if low, fill the reservoir almost to the top line. Replace the diaphragm and cover and tighten the screws loosely.
6) Apply the Clutch Lever, slowly, several times and hold the lever in the applied position. Open the Bleed Valve and allow the Clutch Lever to compress completely. Tighten the Bleed Valve and release the Clutch Lever.

Repeat this step until all air bubbles are out of the system. NOTE: make sure to check the reservoir often to keep the fluid level full so air won't enter the system. When finished, make sure to keep the Clutch Lever pulled all the way in and tighten the bleed valve then replace the dust cap. If the lever still feels spongy, it will be necessary to repeat all the steps again until the Clutch Lever feels firm and gives the same feel each time it is applied.

Once you are finished bleeding the clutch system, make sure the fluid reservoir is full and tighten the screws on the cover. Do not apply too much force when tightening these screws as they have a tendency to strip.

How to bleed the clutch on a 1987 honda goldwing


Hello,

I did a search on Gold Wing problems and saw yours, unanswered for 2 months, and figured you have received your answer from somewhere else.

I will answer your question, just in case you haven't bled your clutch system yet. Just so you know, it is not necessary to bleed your clutch system unless your clutch feels spongy, you have had a leak somewhere in the system, you have had a component replaced, or you are changing the DOT 4 fluid.

1) Remove the dust cap from the bleed valve on the Clutch Slave Cylinder.
2) Connect a clear tube to the bleed valve on the Clutch Slave Cylinder - make sure you have a long enough length of tubing so that you can put a loop in the tubing higher than the bleed valve to prevent air from entering the system.
3) Place the other end of the tube into a clean container and fill the container with enough DOT 4 fluid to keep the end of the tube submerged.
4) Clean the top of the Clutch Master Cylinder and remove the screw holding the cover on. Remove the cover and the diaphragm.
5) Check the fluid level, and if low, fill the reservoir almost to the top line. Replace the diaphragm and cover and tighten the screws loosely.
6) Apply the Clutch Lever, slowly, several times and hold the lever in the applied position. Open the Bleed Valve and allow the Clutch Lever to compress completely. Tighten the Bleed Valve and release the Clutch Lever.

Repeat this step until all air bubbles are out of the system. NOTE: make sure to check the reservoir often to keep the fluid level full so air won't enter the system. When finished, make sure to keep the Clutch Lever pulled all the way in and tighten the bleed valve then replace the dust cap. If the lever still feels spongy, it will be necessary to repeat all the steps again until the Clutch Lever feels firm and gives the same feel each time it is applied.

Once you are finished bleeding the clutch system, make sure the fluid reservoir is full and tighten the screws on the cover. Do not apply too much force when tightening these screws as they have a tendency to strip.

If you are changing the fluid, open the bleed valve and keep apply the clutch until no fluid exits the bleed valve. You will need to follow the above steps to refill the clutch system with fluid.

Oz

1989 honda vt1100. the bike has no clutch feel. the lever is soft and wont disengage the clutch, master /slave works fine, i removed and held the slave from moving and the clutch lever was firm. the bike...


Hey End,
check out these components... one of them IS the problem.. make sure the system will pump fluid all the way to the bottom of the hose..THIS WILL REQUIRE TWO PEOPLE..and a can of fluid.. We are going to test the lever's ability to pressurize the hose...(This will help pinpoint the issue!!)..First.. remove the cover of the reservoir..(keep it level)...(DO NOT let the reservoir get low on fluid!!) one of you needs to remove the hose at the connection(#21 - master cyl. pic)..it will be leaking.. place your finger and thumb over the hose(prevent it from leaking).. have your helper fill the reservoir..now have your helper squeeze the lever.. see if you feel pressure on your finger and thumb..if not.. try putting the cover on the reservoir..and now try pumping the lever ...see if you get pressure at your finger and thumb.(it SHOULD blow fluid out!). IF THERE is NO pressure - no matter what you try..-- The problem is in the master cylinder.. (START from the BOTTOM pic first)..

The numbered pic's are the main culprits.. the problem is most likely in the master cylinder... -- then the clutch (#14 - #16) components...

PlEASE mark as helpful.... thanks

The clutch on my 1995 suziki vs 800 slips under power,it disengages


Keep the bike upright and place the handlebars straight. Check the clutch fluid level in the reservoir. If it's below the lower mark, take the cap off and fill it to the upper level. Use D.O.T. 3 or 4 brake fluid. If this doesn't solve the problem you may have air bubbles in the line or dirty fluid. If so, make sure the reservoir is at the top level and replace the cap and tighten it back up. Remove the secondary gear cover.(just ahead of the driveshaft) Attach a pipe or hose to the bleeder valve and run the other end into a pan or something similiar so you don't get fluid everywhere.Squeeze and release the clutch lever several times in rapid succession, and squeeze the lever fully without releasing it.Loosen the bleeder valve by turninmg it a quarter of a turn so that the fluid runs into the resepticle; this will remove the tension of the clutch lever causing it to touch the handlebar grip. Then,close the valve,pump and squeeze the lever, and open the valve again. Do this as many times as needed to get the air out of the system and nothing but clear brake fluid running through the line You may have to add fluid to the reservoir during this process. When the air bubbles are gone and the fluid is running clear, top off the reservoir to the upper level. Also, you may know that brake fluid will peel the paint off of your paint job so be careful not to get any on the painted surfaces.
If all of this fails, then you probably need new clutches but most likely not. I have an '86 model (same bike) and it still has the original clutches. Hope this helps; John

I've a yamaha yzf-r6. Problem- Lost all drive in any gear!!!??


It could actually be that the countershaft sprocket has stripped-out the splines that engage it to the countershaft. Take off the cover and have a look at the sprocket. Hopefully it is only the sprocket that is damaged and not the transmission shaft that it mounts to.
Another possibility is that the clutch cable has somehow gotten waaay out of adjustment. Just feel the clutch lever; you should have some free play at the lever. In other words, the first 1/4" or so of lever movement should do nothing except take up a small amount of slack in the cable.
Are you sure it is actually going into gear? Or have the splines on the shift shaft stripped-out? These are the things I would check first. If it isn't one of these, then I predict some major transmission work is in your future.
