You either need to adjust your clutch, you have too much oil in your primary, or your throwout bearing has failed.

To adjust the clutch, follow the clutch cable until you find the rubber bellows near the down tubes of the frame. Slide the bellow up or down to gain access to the adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and adjust the adjuster inwards making the cable as short as possible.

Now, remove the derby cover on the outer primary cover. In the center of the clutch assembly you'll see an adjuster screw and locknut. Loosen the locknut and turn the adjuster clockwise until you feel a resistance. You don't want to force the adjuster screw as you'll start to release the clutch, go in just until you feel resistance. You may wish to do this several times until you get the feel for it. Once you feel the resistance, back out 1/2 to 1 full turn and lock the locknut. Reinstall the derby cover.

Now, go back to the cable adjuster and adjust the adjuster outward, making the cable longer, until you get about an 1/8" freeplay at the clutch lever. Lock the locknut and reposition the bellows. This should allow your clutch to release.

If you have too much oil in your primary, it will cause your clutch to drag and make it impossible to find neutral with the engine running. The oil level should be no higher than the bottom of the clutch spring with the bike standing straight up.

If you're experiencing difficulty shifting through the rest of the gears, You may have lost a throw out bearing. To replace the throwout bearing, you'll have to pull the chrome clutch release cover off the right side of the transmission.

Good Luck
Steve

90 nissan sentra 5spd manual wont go into any gear with or without running or clutch engaged. why?


The clutch isn't working correctly if you have to go through all that to get it into gear. You can check the shifter rails on top of the transmission, but that takes removal and dis assembly of the top cover on the transmission.

I have a 1997 Harley Davidson Ultra Classic with 31000 miles and I have developed a viberation that goes away when you depress the clutch. How do I get rid of this, is it a otot mount, I changed the front...


You may have a problem with the clutch itself. There is a "spring plate" in the center of the clutch stack. I've seen the plates wear out and it causes it to go off center, When the clutch is engaged, this clutch pack is turning. When you pull the lever and disengage the clutch, it stops turning and the vibration stops. It takes a special tool to disassemble the clutch and put it back together.

Good Luck

My kia wont move feels like cluck is always engaged


if you put shifter in nuetral and you start car and release clutch does it go? If yes then there is a trans or linkage problem. If you can shift car and the clutch disengages yet car wont roll i would check the brakes for broken hardware or frozen calipers.

After being stored clutch willnot engage


do you mean wont disengage? does the pedal feel normal, or like its pushing nothing?cant put it in gear? or goes in gear but wont move?. if you put it in gear but car wont move, the clutch is toasted. if you can put it in gear with the engine off, but not when its running, check the clutch master fluid. if its low or out, then the slave or master is leaking and you will need to replace both. if the clutch arm IS working, and the pedal feels normal, sometimes you can put in gear, and start it with the clutch pedal depressed and drive it, and goose the gas to "break the disc loose"
