SOURCE: Clutch bleed on a Suzuki 1400 Intruder 2000

One the left-hand side of the bike (facing forward), there is cover plate just ahead of the drive shaft. Remove that cover (mine has 8mm bolts). The bleeder valve is under this cover. Go to an auto parts store and get a "one man bleeder kit" or if you have some plastic tubing that will fit over the valve, you can use that and a clean jar. Follow the instructions on the bleeder kit, or if you're using the jar and tubing, fill the jar about a quarter of the way with break fluid (use DOT4, but never DOT5!). Take the cover off the master cylinder up at the handlebars, place the tube over the end of the bleed valve (after loosening it a turn or two. Place the other end of the tube down in the break fluid in the jar. Work the clutch lever until you stop getting bubbles in the jar. Be sure to keep the fluid level up in the reservoir. Tighten the bleeder valve, remove the tubing, top off the fluid and replace the covers.

Be careful not to get brake fluid on anything. It will eat paint and mess up other things.

Your clutch plates have lasted 25 years. It is probably time to get some new plates. Have your dealer get you a set of Barnett clutch plates.

SOURCE: clutch slips

Most likely the reason for the slipping when cold is the plates can build up a glaze. Mainly from not being adjusted correctly. First I would make sure the clutch is adjusted correctly, then replace the fluid with either Harley Spot Trans fluid or Golden Spectro Trans fluid for Sportsters trans and big twin primary's.

SOURCE: I have a 1999 VS1400 Intruder clutch is slipping

Ya know what I had the same problem and I changed the clutch discs and plates ,problem still persisted.
Replaced the master cyl piston and such ,problem still persists.Took apart the slave cyl and now ordered the kit for that and noticed that the clave cyl had a film of dirt and rubber on the side wall I think that this comes from lack of service mainly changing of fluids.The brakes ,front and back are next for me.
Remember to be patient when bleeding air.Try opening the resivoir cap pull clutch handle ,tie it off and walk away for 2 days .worked for me after a test of my patients for 3 daysm

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?

Suzuki Intruder Problems


If the clutch has a cable system and not a hydraulic clutch system, the cable is probably adjusted incorrectly. If the system is hydraulic(applies to cable systems also), the steels in the clutch pack are probably warped and should be changed. If the steels in the clutch pack are black and blue they arre probably warped and should be changed.

Loosing torque when engine heats up..... feels like clutch is not engaging even though in gear. Bike runs fine for the first 10 minutes or so, but as soon as engine oil heats up, bike is no longer...


possible not enough clutch free play
engine oil is not used in the clutch assembly
it is a special clutch/ transmission oil
wrong oil will cause the clutch plates to slip

How to adjust clutch 1998 Suzuki VL 1500 intruder LC


The clutch on this model is hydraulic and is 'self adjusting", if the clutch is slipping the plates are worn out and in need of replacement. This information comes directly from the factory service manual.

1992 park ave transmission slips fluid and


It probably did not slip before the fluid was changed I so the clutches are worn out and need to be replaced The worn fibers were still in the old fluid causing the fluid to be thicker filling the voids much better to shift. Now once drained and new fluid installed it slips

Prelude 2.2 vti W reg auto automatic tiptronic gearbox slipping


Hi there. Although the Dealer has changed the oil, did they do a 'Stall Test' whilst the gearbox was cold and again when at normal running temperture? If not, that's what they must do firstly. This will identify whether you have a slipping clutch/s. The Honda autobox also includes what is known as accumulators - these control how each clutch is engaged during acceleration. For example, if you are accelerating slighly/smoothly, you want each gear to be engaged gently and smoothly, whereas, when accelerating hard, you need the gear engaged quickly and hard to aviod clutch slippage. Thus, the fact that you are experiencing a hard engagement might mean that an accumulator/s is seized. If that's the case, it will mean that the autobox will need stripping, cleaning and be checked for worn components. Hope this helps, Scottech.
