Got to Click OEM parts and look up your bike. They've got great exploded views of every part of the bike. I wouldn't use the penetrating oil. Now, what you might can do is put the transmission in top gear, hold the clutch lever in, and rock the bike back and forth. Sometimes that will break the clutch loose but it can also tear the friction material off the metal backing disc. The best thing is take the clutch apart.

When you get the clutch plates out, wash them in gasoline. Do not smoke while doing this and be very careful of static electricity. Gasoline is the only thing I've found that would break the glaze otherwise I'd say use something else, Just be careful when using it. Once you washed all the plates off, lay a piece of medium grit emory cloth on a flat surface. Lay the friction plates on the emory cloth and lightly sand them using a figure "8" pattern. Just lightly. Put the clutch back together by installing a friction disc, a metal disc, a friction disc, and so on.
You'll do fine. Just remember, don't force anything. If something is supposed to come off but doesn't seem to want to, look for another bolt that you may have overlooked.

Good Luck

Im having a clutch cable or something to do with the clutch sometimes being hard/grinding but i am getting plenty of pressure from the clutch pedal has anyone had any clutch cable issues.

If the clutch operation feels smooth and normal with the usual amount of travel and free play then it probably is ok and the fault is inside the clutch housing, with the clutch components.

Difficult gear changes and gear crunching sometimes could be caused by dry and tight splines or grease/oil contamination of the friction material.

Ive just purchased a triumph america and im having trouble with clunking through the gear changes. was hoping for some advice as to what would be best speed to change gear or any help will be greatly...

Perfection will come with practice. It is difficult to explain when to change gear and at which revs etc. It is a matter of time and timing. You will soon get the hang of it.
I was wondering if the clutch dissengages fully, that is all. If not it may need slight adjustment.
Ride safely.

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 have a yz 125 with a rebuilt motor i put the nuw motor

A very common problem with wet clutches is that many folks do not use the correct oil. The plates in the clutch are sandwiched under spring pressure and there is nothing in the mechanism to release them, so if the oil creates too much "stiction" then the plates can become suctioned together.

I suggest first trying an oil change using an oil designed for use with wet clutches. Then, get a running start, hop on the bike and drop it into gear. Then pull in the clutch and while holding the clutch lever in, rev the motor to break the plates loose. If this fails after a few attempts, your plates could be rusted together - possibly from a leaking waterpump seal or a ride through deep water. A simple tear-down of the clutch will tell the tale and this can be done without buying any parts if you are careful.

After only 4,000 miles it feels like the clutch is slipping ive backed the cable off and almost ok but im thinking of fitting a race or upgraded clutch but id like to know whats best

your clutch might not be bad, did you recently chance your oil. if you used a synthetic oil that could be bad. bikes with wet clutches(non harley) cant usually use sythetic oils there to slippery and can burn up your clutch. adjust your cable so theres a 1/4" of play in your lever and leave it. if you change out the clutch dont use anything but the oem replacement plates just upgrade the springs to a heavy duty, this is a better and cheaper way to go. ebc is great stuff and ive never had a problem using there products. dont waste your money with kevlar clutches or anything other than oem, just an example my gsxr 1000 had 163 hp at the wheel using a stock clutch and never had a problem after putting 10,000 miles on it. also just a tip if your sitting at a light or at a stop get in the habbit of putting it in neutral and letting out the clutch this cuts down on spring wear and could ad some life to your clutch. hope this helps, ride safe and always wear your gear even in the no helmet states.

Audi a4 tdi stiff gearchange worse when hot 1197 model

tandard practice to change the oil on a clutch replacement. Was the replacemmiles it's covered, but it's not sounds like the gearbox oil need changing. You don't say how many miles it has done. Gear box oil is not usually changed in a clutch replacement. Did an Audi garage carry out the rlacement? It could be the cable needs adjusting to allow the clutch to have free movement

This sounds like dirt and grit in the oil is causing the clutch to grab. Change the gearbox oil. Ride the bike for a couple of hours using the clutch often. Now drain the oil again and put in fresh oil. This will flush out the dirt and grit. Use 10w40 motor oil. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. Do not use synthetics or oils with "special" additives.

Other possible causes are > a need to adjust the clutch lever for 1/4" free play at end of the lever > warped clutch plates or friction plates > Clutch has been worked on and assembled wrong > low oil level in the gearbox > frozen clutch hub bearing > Incorrect clutch cable being used.

Please post a comment after the double oil change. The 2x oil change is a cheap way to eliminate a possible cause and hey, it isn't gonna hurt anything. If you still have the problem I can help with a clutch rebuild.

Clutch csae weaping

A issue with the 99~02's is that the clutch cover gets warped from the repeated heat/cool cycle associated with riding your bike. You can take some 500 or higher grit sand paper and tape it to a flat surface and then in a cicrle pattern smooth the clutch cover out. Works for some people...if it's too far out, you'll have to get a new cover.
