I put new clutch fibees in on a kawasaki zx12r but when I squeeze in the clutch the releasw pull rod will not release the pressure plate

Hey Darnell, make sure you have not left out a thrust bearing or thrust washer that rides on the clutch push rod... it's what pushes the pressure plate out..

I have a 97 jeep wrangler. the slave cylinder came apart. the push rod came right out of the cylinder. does this mean my clutch is warn causing the rod to exceed out of the cylinder?

Hello, the answer is not necessarily, you have some other problem, was the bolts that hold the slave cylinder in place still intact, if yes than it is more than likely that the fork that the slave cylinder rod sits against (goes into the gearbox) is either worn, bent or broken or even the slave cylinder rod itself (unlikely). That fork pushes a bearing (thrust bearing) against the pressure plate in the front of your gearbox which engages and disengages your clutch plate, if that thrust bearing has come off by wear on the fork than it is also possible.

Hi , how slack should the cable be on my raptor 660 clutch ,it's a2003 model

All clutch cables need about 1/4" slack at the handle bar. This is so the thrust rod is not constantly rubbing on the clutch thrust plate.

Dead clutch lever

The clutch cable actuates an axle with a gear at the other end. This gear bears against step gears on the thrust rod, which pushes against clutch. Make sure there is a circlip at BOTH ends of this axle. When replacing cover, ensure axle is returned fully with handlever out, and spring is in place on actuating fulcrum of the axle. Thrust rod must bear against roller bearing of the clutch pressure plate. Make sure step gears engage at first tooth when operating handlever. The above link provides an exploded view of the entire bike in appropriate sections as an aid.

Clutch is noisy,when i depress the clutch the noise goes away

this noise is caused by a noisy clutch throw-out/release bearing, that is the part that presses against the pressure plate and disengages the clutch disk, the transmission must be removed to replace this part, so it is best to replace the clutch assembly at the same time, the labor for both is the same, about 5 hours

RM 250 Clutch noise 1986 (Yes an old girl I know)

The clutch has two different types of needle bearings. One flat thrust bearing about 1" diameter and one caged needle bearing. The most likely culprit is the thrust bearing. This is a 5 to 10 dollar bearing and easy to replace if you have an impact driver to loosen the right case cover screws. Drain the oil, remove the right case cover then the clutch end plate. The bearing is there, and will probably come off with the plate.

How easy is it to replace a noisy clutch thrust bearing. 53 plate Ford Focus 1.6 petrol zetec.

The thrust bearing is normally a part of a new clutch kit.Comprises pressure plate, clutch plate and thrust bearing.You will need to remove the gear box to change the bearing.The bearing basically slides onto the gearbox shaft. Recommend changing all three rather than just the beaing.You may want to get quotes from garages as dealers are expensive.
