You probably made the mistake of putting synthetic oil or STP in it.
It wasn't designed for that. You can put the extra strong clutch springs in if your man enough to squeeze them.

Keep the bike upright and place the handlebars straight. Check the clutch fluid level in the reservoir. If it's below the lower mark, take the cap off and fill it to the upper level. Use D.O.T. 3 or 4 brake fluid. If this doesn't solve the problem you may have air bubbles in the line or dirty fluid. If so, make sure the reservoir is at the top level and replace the cap and tighten it back up. Remove the secondary gear cover.(just ahead of the driveshaft) Attach a pipe or hose to the bleeder valve and run the other end into a pan or something similiar so you don't get fluid everywhere.Squeeze and release the clutch lever several times in rapid succession, and squeeze the lever fully without releasing it.Loosen the bleeder valve by turninmg it a quarter of a turn so that the fluid runs into the resepticle; this will remove the tension of the clutch lever causing it to touch the handlebar grip. Then,close the valve,pump and squeeze the lever, and open the valve again. Do this as many times as needed to get the air out of the system and nothing but clear brake fluid running through the line You may have to add fluid to the reservoir during this process. When the air bubbles are gone and the fluid is running clear, top off the reservoir to the upper level. Also, you may know that brake fluid will peel the paint off of your paint job so be careful not to get any on the painted surfaces.
If all of this fails, then you probably need new clutches but most likely not. I have an '86 model (same bike) and it still has the original clutches. Hope this helps; John

My clutch seems to slip in higher gears on my suzuki intruder but takes off from dead starts just fine. what does it sound like the problem is?

Sounds like you either need to adjust the clutch cable - there should be a little bit of play in it before it disengages the clutch - or you need a new clutch kit (plates, springs, etc). What mileage is on the bike and has the clutch ever been changed?

Make sure the clutch is disengaging completely. Stop with the engine in gear and rev the engine. If it tries to go the clutch is not disengaging.

PTO engages, but, keeps becoming disengaged on LT1042.

Cub Cadets have one of two types of PTOs. The most common is gear driven. The gear teeth of the PTO shaft are very small and thin. If the PTO is engaged without proper clutch action, the gear teeth grind together, trying to engage. A little wear on these gears will cause the surface of the gears to become beveled, and when the PTO comes under load, the beveled surfaces of the gear teeth force the gear lock to disengage. The only option is to replace the worn gears...

The second type of PTO drive is electric clutch. This is a disc type clutch that is engaged by energizing an electromagnet built into the clutch pack... any disruption of electrical power to the clutch pack while under load will cause the clutch to disengage and then possibly try to engage while under load and casues the clutch pack to slip and will overheat almost instantly...

Can't get the clutch on a suzuki 800 intruder to hold pressure

Oil should be 10W40 SF or SG grade. Anything else will cause the clutch to slip. There must be freeplay on the clutch cable (0.4-0.6in). Adjust handle bar clutch lever screw all the way out then adjust at gearbox end and revert to handle bar adjustment for fine adjustments. If this does not solve the problem take the clutch apart and measure driven plate thickness (3.12in minimum for the 1st plate and 2.62in minimum for the others)
Measure clutch spring free length. There are 2 sets (4 springs each). 0.97in minimum and 0.92in minimum respectively.
A slipping clutch is caused by incorrect friction, that is incorrect oil or insufficient pressure. Pressure is supplied by the springs on the discs and driven plates.
If the discs, driven plates or bucket is worn it will cause slippage.
If you pull in the clutch and it disengages but starts to re- engage after a short period you will need to replace the clutch master cylinder seals.

1995 intruder 1400 clutch

That is more than enough movement. Most probably don't move half that much. All they have to do is release the spring pressure from between the plates.
