This is a common problem that the clutch plates glue them selves together. You will need to remove the clutch outer case cover and disassemble the clutch and one by separate each plate re oil them and reassemble them.

SOURCE: clutch is frozen from sitting in garage

What has happened is the friction plates have styuck themselves to the actual clutch plates ,this is normally caused by damp getting into the clutch .You may be lucky ,If you can start the bike and run the engine till it gets to working temperature .Some times the cluch plates will unfree themselve with the heat exspansion from the engine ..Try operating the clutch .but don't try to engage any gears .untill the engine is switched off .And while the engine is still warm put the bike into 1st gear and gently rock it .If this does not work ,then its a strip down unfortunatly ..However you may be able to free the clutch without totaly stripping the clutch unit diown, .Some times to can tease the plates appart using a very thin bladed knife or scraper .I have had success uesing a small trowel .But take care not to damage the plates ,and get a friend to operate the clutch while you are trying to free the clutch plates .

depending on how cold your area was --may have blown seals --a line --look under for a leak area and check fluid levels also any moisture around clutch may be frozen together to the flywheel

When I let clutch out when cars in gear the car wont pull away if I turn engine off let it sit fr an hr then drive it its fine fr a while.


For awhile? How long? And then it slips again? I think you need a new clutch, your clutch disc must be worn. A new clutch kit includes a new clutch disc or plate, a new or rebuilt clutch pressure plate, and a new release bearing. Costs about $150-200,for the kit, but you also need the flywheel surface smoothed at a machine shop or garage, then the labor cost of removing the transmission or transaxle to replace the clutch- it all adds up to an expensive job.

Clutch frozen. Sat up a long time and I guess the plates have fused together. I have rocked the bike back and forth and freed it up before, but this time no luck. Any suggestions without taking the thing...


This is a common problem with Kawasaki's, all mine do that so I always leave it in neutral.
While still in gear with your clutch pulled in, rock your bike back and forth. If that doesn't work, sit on the bike and with both feet down and off the stands. Leave it in gear and hold the clutch in and push the bike backwards, with your feet. It is easier to push backwards than it is to do the ruptured duck and drag it forward.

If that fails, stay on it keep it in gear and with clutch in. As you push it backward let the clutch out, sometimes this will "break" the locked plates.

I just bought a 86 Eliminator from a guy who said the motor is locked up. I seems true but when I put it in gear I can"t push the bike with the clutch in. Could I have a problem with the clutch? 9000 miles...


the clutch may be frozen in place. try disengaging the clutch, sit on the bike, and rock it back and forth and hard as possible. this may dislodge the clutch plates. it usually happens if the bike has sat for a while

I have 1999 1.7 puma, the clutch seems to loose pressure when sitting in traffic with the clutch depressed is there a comon fault ?


It sound like the Master or slave cylinder seals could be leaking, if you pump the clutch does this help ??. I wouldn't worry about it being a common fault your car is nearly 11 years old and the brake and clutch fluid should be changed every two years as it becomes emulsified ( absorbs water) take it to your local garage they will be able to tell you more without driving your car and seeing the problem it's hard to say anymore
