Try holding the clutch lever down, transmission in first gear, and rock the bike back and forth. If this doesn't work, you may have to pull the clutch plates apart through dis-assembly. This is a fairly common problem with performance-grade clutches. Hope this helps!

Got my bike out today and the clutch will not disengage

Hi, John if your bike was in storage for awhile the clutch plates may have some surface rust causing the plates to stick together an easy way to unstick them is to get the bike running in gear and drive it around for 15 minutes or so then try shifting if this does not work you will have to dismantle the clutch pack and decontaminate the plates. Good luck and have a wonderful day.

How to easily unstick a motorcycle clutch after a lay-up

The easy way to unstick the plates of a motorcycle clutch after it has been unused for a while is to put the front wheel up to a wall at 90 degrees to it, with both wheels on the ground
Get some intrepid friends to steady the bike for safety if you wish
Brace yourself for a big lurch
Start the bike in neutral, hold the rear brake on (if possible) & then with some revs, CLUNK the bike into gear, this shocks the plates apart
Then off you go

Ride Safe

I have a 49cc the clutch is stuck on it is there a filler plug on it if so where is it and what kind of oil can i use to unstick it

The answer to your question is likely to vary depending on make and model of motorcycle.

I suggest you read your owner's handbook and familiarise yourself with your bike, which is something every vehicle owner should do before starting the engine for the first time.

I doubt adding oil will unstick the clutch and it will probably need some surgery.

My boyfriend put a clutch in his bike yesterday the clutch is not disengaging. i was wondering if it could be the master cylinder? please help thanks.

Could have adjusted pressure plate too tight, or uneven. Wet clutches have to be soaked in oil 4 a couple of hours before installing. Try 2 push bike with lever fully in while in 4gear (motor off) this may unstick plates.

I have a Yamaha XT 600 that hasn't been started for over a year. When I tried to bump start it today it felt like the clutch was seized a little as it barely moved when in gear and clutch lever pulled in....

That's kind of normal. The wet clutch plates are stuck together from not being used. Put the bike into first gear. Hold the clutch in and rock the bike backward until it free up. If that does not do the trick, start the bike. Get someone to give you a push, and when you are moving a bit put it in gear ( always keep the clutch in at all time and do this on an open road where you can drive away if the clutch does not unstick itself). As you will drive away with the clutch in, open and close the throttle a fews times until the cltch frees up.
that does the trick all the time for me on my old scramblers.

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!

It sounds like your clutches are stuck.If the bike has been sitting for awhile the clutch plates will stick together. Sometimes they will unstick.1st I would change the oil. Then i would place the front tire up against a solid wall start the bike pull in clutch put in gear ,repeat a few times.If this does not unstick the clutch you might have to replace your fiber clutch plates.Hope these helps

I put the bike in gear but when i pull the clutch lever in, it wont disengage and stays in gear??

if the clutch lever feels it has plenty of tension, it may just be the clutch plates stuck together from sitting.

Roll start it and ride around while holding in the clutch, vary the throttle, and they usually unstick. Give it an oil change when it warms up.

Sounds like the clutch is sticking. You may be able to free it off. Bike on centre stand, rear wheel off the ground, run engine, front brake hard on, pull in clutch and put in gear. Apply rear brake. May work,may not. Be careful to keep rear wheel off the ground.
