SOURCE: Clutch push rod will not depress to engage

go to this http://www.cmsnl.com/yamaha-rt1-19701971_model8356/partslist/A-09.html and then click on "view big image", this will give you a diagram of the clutch etc,, the adjustment (No. 26) may need looking at, or (No.11,12,) have broken.Basically you turn 26 in (clockwise) untill you feel light resistance then back off 1/2 turn (been years since i worked on one of these!) this should give you freeplay, have you just got the bike?, and do you think it has been stripped lately(ie the clutch). PS I am not affiliated with the web site i offered above, just a handy reference for you maybe? cheers

SOURCE: 2006 yz 125 breaking push rod in clutch

That is a bit strange. Did the previous owner install stronger springs than the stock ones? Compare the effort to pull your clutch handle to what it takes on a new 125. Be sure you have clean 10w40 motor oil in the gearbox. No synthetics or special additives. Replace the rod and the lever assembly. The rod, lever and oil should eliminate the problem assuming the springs are stock.

SOURCE: i have a 1974 DT

I can't find any parts diagrams for a DT360, and it has been 35 years since I worked on a DT360 at LYNN'S YAMAHA, DM Iowa, but as I recall there IS a ball bearing in the assembly. It went in right before the pushrod. The diagram below is for a 1978 DT400. I am pretty sure your 360 has the same clutch assembly as the 400. The ball bearing would not have worn down. A prior owner leaving it out is far more likely. Please take a moment and rate my answer. Thanks. tombones49_72.gif

Have a Greenfield Evolution 2000 mower , the forward drive clutch is slipping badly on hills is ok on the flat, what is required to fix this problem. Can the clutch pads be replaced or are complete clutch...


The Greenfield clutch (drive belt) is adjusted by spring pressure pulling a long rod that has serations on it. Either the belt has run out of adjustment (= new belt needed) or the adjuster has stuck. Lift up the seat and push the adjusting rod that has a big spring attached to see if you can move it towards the front. Look at the pulley beside the rod, if the belt has stretched too far, the pulley will be hard up against its slot. The pulley moves towards the front to tighten the belt. I just push with my leg to get another "click" out of the adjusting rod. New belts are cheap too.

Recently purchased a 75' CB360T. Ran fine but when I took it for a spin I got back and went to release the clutch and the lever just stayed in, there was no tension on it. It seems like I can't disengage...


It`s possible that your clutch cable broke.Yes follow the cable down to the motor and remove that cover.The cable will be attached to push rod lever.When you remove the cover you will see the front sprocket and clutch push rod make sure the rod stay in place.Hope this helps you out.

clutch pushrod should just pull out as it should be a 2 piece clutch pushrod model, earlier models were 1 piece and you had to remove clutch cover and pressure plate to remove. hopefully the seal is ok.

How does the clutch cable release work under the clutch release cover?


The clutch cable hooks to the screw assembly. The assembly is bolted to the case. When the clutch lever is pulled in, the center part of the assembly, ( a giant screw mechanism ), pushes on the clutch rod which then pushes on the outer clutch pressure plate to separate the clutch plates. The clutch springs supply the pressure to push the clutch lever outward thus engaging the clutch to move forward. I hope this answers your question. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

I have a wet clutch an it wont engage the cable broke and the main shaft for the clutch on the inside is loose and moves aroundand i have a 2002 but on the web site it only has 2003 so i put that


I think you mean that the clutch has a broken cable and it is constantly engaged. The clutch dis-engages from the gear box when the clutch lever is pulled in. The push lever axle (I think this is what you are calling the main shaft) sits in a hole on the side cover. The gear on the axle engages the push rod and the push rod separates the clutch plates by pushing on the pressure plate to dis -engage the transmission. If the axle shaft is loose, check the lock bolt. Also check the cover plate. Is the casing cracked or broken at the mounting point?

If you are calling the push rod "the main shaft", then some movement is normal when the clutch is engaged as would happen with a broken cable. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Clutch push rod broke !!!


Chances are the prior owner installed some aftermarket springs that are too strong. This puts extra pressure on the push rod. Just pull the left and right cover of then remove the clutch assembly. put the new rod in from the left side then re-mount the left cover. Put the clutch back on then the right cover. The parts book shows a two piece push rod assembly. I wonder if a hardware store rod was installed because the factory rods are near impossible to find. The substitute rod probably couldn't handle the pressure and heat.
If not found elsewhere, google motorcycle salvage suzuki and see if you can find a used rod set.
