Not a poor design, if you dropped something down inside of a say Honda - you would be splitting the cases to get it out. On the Harley/buell motor you just loosen all of the allen head bolts and remove them and remove the shifter assembly and pull the inspection cover off. pull the next set of bolts if you want to remove the whole cover.

SOURCE: Mysterious backfire

and has happened when engine braking. The strange part is when the other day I was in 5th gear going 60mph it did it again. It has 2600 miles on it from when I bought it new and and have followed the manufacturers instructions for break in & maintenence to the letter. I have been back to the dealer twice for the same problem and they can't duplicate the problem.Its normal.  Only things I have found that help to cure the problem the easiest way, is to re-route the breather and open up the airbox.,,,

1998 Suzuki rm 125. Changed clutch lever and when pulled in its not engaging tried to adjust cable in all ways 1/4in play still nothing someone said to pull lever and duct tape it overnight maybe will...


I am sure it's a wet clutch. Pop your bike in neutural. Remove your clutch crank case cover and, using a screwdriver, separate the plates manually. Put the tip of your screwdriver between the edge of the clutch plates and turn the screwdriver. It will break the seal of your plates and spacers. Put it all together again. Do a fluid flush and refill your oil to recommended levels. Get the bike running again and give it a go. Should be fine. Good luck!

Hi, if you are ok doing this type of job, then its quite easy to fit a cable, remove the seat, undo the 2 bolts securing the fuel tank and prop up the back end of the fuel tank, remove the gear change lever by removing the 10mm bolt, remove all the screws holding the sprocket caseing, next comes the cable with the case still on the engine undo the locking nut on the clutch cable, (12 mm), next get the new cable and lay it along side the whole length of the old cable and fasten it to the frame where ness, screw in the addjuster all the way at the clutch lever and align the slot for cable removal from the lever now remove the sprocket cover and old cable with it, undo the cable adduster all the way until it is removed from the case, push the cable wire back to remove it from the clutch control arm inside the case, try not to remove the arm as it will fit back in more than 1 position, retaining the original position is important, you can then refit the new cable into the arm a small amount of grease on the cable nipple will help, replace the case back onto the engine it should fit flush with no effort, replace all the screws, it important they are fitted in accordance, so place them loosly in the holes they should all protude around the same amount, if any are shorter or longer move them around untill correct. Once happy tighten them up, connect the cable at the control lever on the handlebar and then remove all the slack from the cable at both ends untill you have around 5mm free play at the handlebar end, replace gear change lever, and all other fixings.

Zx-9r 2000 how do you remove the clutch side cover to change the clutches


Hello,
The clutch cover is removed in a two step process.
  • Remove the clutch cable by loosening the adjustment at top and bottom first. Then remove the cable end from the clutch lever. This should give enough slack to remove the cable at the bottom by the clutch cover. ** Take notice of the angle of the lever that the cable goes into the cover. You will want to re-assemble the clutch cover with that lever in the same angle.
  • Remove the clutch cover bolts around the outside of the cover.the cover should now be removed by pulling the cover straight out.

Thanks and I hope that this helps.

Oil is coming out the clutch cable at adjusting threads what would cause this


Right where the threaded adjuster goes into the outer primary case, there's a locknut. There should be an O-ring on this treaded piece to seal in the oil. To replace the o-ring, you must go through the procedure to replace the clutch cable by removing the primary outer cover, disassembling the clutch release mechanism, and turning the cable out.

Good Luck

How do you change the crank


Pull the engine out of the frame. Remove the top end. Remove left and right side case covers. Remove the clutch, crank drive gear, shift shaft assembly, kick start assembly, water pump, rotor, stator base assembly, sprocket and miscellaneous other small items. Remove all case screws then split the case halves using a case splitter tool. Be sure to install new crank bearings and seals. You can see an exploded diagram of the engine at the following website.Please rate my answer, thanks.

How do you adjust the clutch on a 07 1200 sportster


Their are 2 ways to adjust the clutch. First slide the rubber boot off the adjustment screw on the clutch cable, you can then make adjustment to cable for the pull. If you need to adjust the clutch itself you need to remove the derby cover, once you remove the derby cover you will see the cam that the cable attatchs to in the center of the cam you should see a post with a slot for a flat head screw driver tighten that post down and then back off a quater turn. when you tighten it down don't over tighten it, just snug.
