SOURCE: Bike only starts in Neutral. Very jerky on pull off.

Chances are that you can save your money, most of it anyway. Change the gearbox oil, ( 10w40 ), then ride for 50 miles. Now change it again. This should flush out the dirt and grit in the clutch plates. Also, remove the gas tank and then replace the clutch cable. Cables just don't get lubrication often enough. Yours is probably really old. Now try the bike.

If you do change out the clutch, keep the basket. Unless you hit it with a hammer, the clutch hub should be perfectly fine. Just replace the fiber plates. Unless warped, the steel plates should be perfectly fine also.

Please rate this solution. (four diamonds would be nice ), Thanks!

SOURCE: CCM 604e 2001..how to correctly adjust clutch cable, clutch drags

Turn the clutch adjustment bolt towards the clutch-lever surface all the way in-not too tight. Feel the lever pressure as crisp, engage the first gear, and see if the bike moves when you engage; stops when you dis-engage. Give the adjustment-bolt a couple outward turns, and see. Repeat procedure as necessary.

Clutch on my orion 250 dirt bike is rattleing and vibrating badly and the clutch seems to drag, how do i get the clutch basket off, do i need a puller?


Have you checked each individual clutch spring to see if broken?
To get clutch basket off: remove all springs, all friction plates. Make sure to leave all plates in original order. Then, with impact gun, remove large nut in center of
clutch basket. Should remove easily. No puller needed.

When running.. even with front brake,and clutch in,putting it in gear makes the bike die?


The clutch plates are stuck inside the clutch basket. This is real common if the bike has been sitting up for awhile. Clean & disassemble the clutch assembly to fix this problem.

Clutch not engaging


could be a few different things,But always start with the small( inexpensive )first and work your way up...#1 check your clutch cable adjustment to be sure its engaging and disengaging properly(clutch cables stretch over time and need replaced or adjusted)...but if you have never done any clutch work to the bike(and you ride it like i do mine) #2. it probably needs new clutch plates and #3 maybe clutch basket from your description of the problem. the clutch plate fibers wear down over time(they are like brake pads and wear out).and the plates wear groves in the clutch basket and interfear with the plate movement...hopefully its just your cable..hope this helps..

2005 kdx 200 clutch not engaging properly


Assuming the clutch handle on the handlebar is adjusted properly, only three things will cause the problem.
  • Very dirty oil in the gearbox. The grit is causing the clutch to drag. Change oil, ride for an hour in the city then change oil again to flush out the grit.
  • Worn clutch lever (at gearbox). Lever is not moving the pusher far enough to fully disengage the clutch. A new lever would be needed.
  • Synthetic lubricant ( or oils with "special" additives), was put in gearbox. 10w40 motor oil should be used in the gearbox. Synthetics can swell the cork on the friction plates causing the clutch to drag. New friction plates will fix the problem.
The current amount of clutch drag is not enough to harness the power of an engine rev. That is why the clutch seems okay at higher revs. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Thought i burnt the clutch out on my wr,at a recent t and t,the bike wouldnt move when in gear with the lever released,so i replaced the clutch plates and oil,i can start the bike ,put in gear,when i let...


Please pardon my response if it is too simple, but did you correctly align the pressure plate (Center part that tops the clutch plates and has springs bolted through it.) with the inner clutch basket (the part inside the clutch basket that the pressure plates spline onto)? If this is not aligned, the pressure plate will not fully engage the clutch plates. Both parts usually have an indicator mark that shows proper alignment.

I've got an 2004 R1 in topp notch condition, it has stood still for near on two months, today wanted to go out on it only to find it wont go into gear?


This is not a tough fix. What has happened is the clutch plates are "stuck" together. Not uncommon when a bike sits for a while. Real easy fix and does not require taking anything apart.
Here you go, and I know this sounds funny but this works and will save you lots of anguish and $$$$. Simply put the bike up against a firm wall with the front tire against it. Put the bike I neutral and start the bike. Pull the clutch in the raise the RPM's to about 3000 - 4000, then put it into first gear. The bike will jump, thats why you put it against the wall, and this will break the clutch lose. You may have to do it a couple of times but you will break it free. The other way to fix this, if you want to be real technical, is to remove the clutch cover, remove the clutch springs which will give you access to the plates by removing the outer cover. Now you simply need to pull out the plates, they will be stuck together, and simply break them lose and clean them off and reinstall them. Make sure you replace the clutch cover gasket or you will have problems.
Personally I'd chose the first recommendation, I have done it hundreds of times for customers and saved them lots of money.
Best of luck, Have a great New Year and I hope you can now go for your ride. Let me know if you need any further assistance.
Regards,

Clutch problem


i just reciently bought a 98 monster 900 i'm new to ducatis and this is my first bike besides countless dirt bikes. anyways i have had it for about 3 months and it has been running fine till about 2 days ago when i move off from a complete stop the bike shakes and stutters and almost stalls everytime but when i actually get it moving it still shifts fine but its performance over all has been sluggish after i get it going. im guessing the clutch is grabbing a little bit then slipping and thats whats causeing it to act like this? or i could be completely off. does this sound familar to anyone? thanks in advanceIt may be a lean burn condition with the engine or maybe the friction plates have worn some deep grooves into the clutch basket, or maybe some of your steel plates in the clutch pack are corroded. Maybe some of each. I had 2 out of 3 of the above with my S4 but installed a new clutch basket, clutch pack, pressure plate, and spider retainer and just enrichened the fueling today and set the idle at 1200rpm. All much better.,,,
