Do i need any specal tools to change my clutch on myc90 suzuki

Check this
If you need to take apart just the clutch plates and replace them, you don't need any special tool.Just remove the right hand crankcase cover and the 5 bolts with the springs and pull out the pressure plate and replace the clutch plates.To remove the clutch basket (part #1 on illustrator), then you do need special tools such as air ratchet gun and the Suzuki special tool that holds the basket still, to remove the nut.

Cant get out of gear

If this is a Suzuki RM250, But even if it is not, this is where I believe your problem is.

Start simple. I'm willing to bet that the shifting mechanism behind the clutch basket is broken in some way. And that your actual transmission including the shift forks, are fine.

I personally have broken item # 26 and 20 on my '02 RM250. Both cause the same problems that you have describe. and both can be repaired by leaving the engine in the frame, but pulling the large clutch cover and the clutch basket. Everything sits halfway behind the lower left part of the clutch basket.

Let me know, as the title of your problem was very limited on bike, year and of course more symptoms. Thanks Mike

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..
