SOURCE: How do I adjust the clutch on a 1981 Suzuki

Adjust clutch cable and "lifting mechanism",,, Loosen locknut on the adjuster SCREW ( gain access by removing the "plug" loctaed the furtherest to rear on left hand side of crank case, looks like a "cap" with a slot in it) and rotate screw IN untile you feel it lightly touch end of pushrod....now turn screw OUT 1/4 to 1/2 turn , then tighten the lock nut...... then use two wrenches to loosen the locking nuts on clutch cable, adjust so there is 4mm / 0.16 inches of free play when you slightly pull the clutch lever ..the measurement is placed at the gap of clutch handle and lever base where you see the cable attached into the handle....tis slight free play is to make sure the clutch is not "tight" engaged all the time.....when you lightly pull on lever watch the adjusting lock screw it will slightly rise...if you can not see it then place one finger on it as you pull lever. ck out pg 20 of manual at http://tinyurl.com/2cua6ak for clutch adjust, and pg 58 for cam chain adjust, and pg 78 to see blowup pic of clutch and adjuster

How to assemble a clutch on a 1981 suzuki motor cycle


This is a fairly easy job, but make sure the clutch is actually bad and not just mis-adjusted. Suggest you at some of the YouTube videos to get a general sense on what is involved in replacing a motorcycle clutch. If you're still unsure you can purchase an old repair manual on amazon, half.com or ebay. The hard part is usually finding the older clutch parts and seals. You can probably use a tube of automotive Silicon to make your own gaskets. As your disassemble the bike, I highly suggest you lay the parts out in order as you remove them, and maybe even take a few pictures or video along the way. This will make it a lot easier to re-assemble things in the right order. Pay particular attention when disassembling the clutch basket. Make sure your soak the replacement clutch parts in the correct weight oil before installing them. This should be listed in the owners manual, or a repair manual. Sometimes the owners manual is stored under the seat.

Am looking ofr a copy of the manual - not a repair


Try this link, for download or for sale. Suzuki dealers can order them but they are often expensive if they say it may take six weeks. They have been known to source their own manuals from OEM partslist sellers who have remaining copies.

The following 2 links provide threads to these OEM sellers and have normal on-line shops. Cheers.

1981 gs550 won't turn over.


You may have removed the sidestand, but is the safety switch still in place - - depending on how it's wired (ie "open" with the stand down, you'll have to short out the switch or if the switch is "made", then you'll need to remove and insulate the positive lead to it - - I had a similar problem on another GS
