Question about 1982 Suzuki Gs 550 L
82 GS650 Suzuki slipping in second gear only. Just changed the cam shifter out due to jumping out of all gears. This slipping is smooth with no clanging of gears, just feels like I am pulling the clutch lever in.
Wave washer on the face of the clutch basket may have lost its tension, clutch friction plates may be wearing thin as she's an old girl. Some automotive (car) oils not specifically designed for wet clutches when used in a bike will cause the clutch to slip as they are designed to leave a deposit on friction areas. This will require a thorough flush and a few oil changes in quick succession.
Check the return function of the clutch release arm on the crankcase, they can bunch up the rubber shroud and not return fully. Good luck and Cheers.
