Question about 1990 Yamaha FZR 1000
Likely you have one of a couple of issues: One is the clutch no longer is fully releasing, and the other is that the clutch disks have rusted together.
IF the clutch "feels" like it is catching late, and not enough travel, you may not be fully releasing. adjust cable or check hydralics, depending on your release system.
so IF you feel that the clutch "feels" the same, meaning that it has the same travel, then a common issue is the disks are fuzzy with rust or thickened lubricant. This happens on after the bike has sat fo ra while...Two ways to resolve this: one take it apart and clean it, the 2nd is to make several "burns" of the clutch. This involves heavier throttle, and intentionally slipping your clutch, with the purpose to have the clutch disks self clean. I usually run along in about 2nd gear range and remain at that SPEED, and shift to 3rd, or 4th, rev engine and slip clutch heavily. Allow time to cool between events, but do it three or 4 times and see if that does not clean up your issue.....
Be safe when you do this, but you knew that.
