Bummer,

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.

1984yamaha virago 1000. with the bike running, when I try to shift from neutral to first gear the bike stalls. I think it has something to do with the electrical.. Help!


If you are at idle, in neutral, with the clutch lever pulled all the way in, and you shift into gear and the engine dies, it is likely the switch at the clutch lever. When they fail the bike does not get the signal that the clutch is disengaged and it is safe to shift into gear. Have that switch checked. Some bikes also have a side stand switch, make sure your side stand is always up before putting you bike into gear.

Hello I have replaced the clutch plates,the release cylinder seals and rebuilt the clutch master cylinder. There is no leaks and the system has been bled and it feels fine. When I pull the clutch lever in...


Back wheels often move when the lever is pulled in...this is due to hydraulic drag caused by the oil on the clutch plates and is totally normal. You should be able to stop the wheel by hand with the lever in.
With the lever out the clutch is fully engaged and the engine will therefore stall with the brake on...
As long as the wheel rotation can be stopped by hand with the clutch pulled in it's behaving normally...
Rocking the bike in gear is a method that's used to seperate the plates on a clutch that is dragging...usually if it's not been used for a while.

I got a 87 yamaha fz1 and i cant use it because the engine dies whenever i shift it in a first gear.. some says that clutch is maybe too low or i need a new plate.. and i wanna know wers that location of...


Have you tried pushing the bike, in neutrol with the engine running, and put it into gear whilst moving, from your thread i cant work out if it is a clutch problem or not, if it is, with the engine turned off, put the bike into gear, pull in the clutch and push the bike the bike will not move because of the cluutch drag, if the clutch is working, it will be slightly difficult to move but it will move without the engine turning over but , other things to consider the wires are connected on the clutch safety switch on the handlebar micro switch ajacent to the clutch lever, also the side stand safety switch, check that the plunger on the switch is not sticking due to hardened grease, dirt rust, etc

Yamaha fzr 1000 exup 1990, bike's been standing for about 2 years, it start's and run's great but the clutch will not disengage, feel good at lever.


this happens after they sit a while, get her started, get her rolling, put her in second gear, hold the clutch in, get her up to 20 miles an hour, hold a little throttle on and slam on the rear brake, this usually will free up the stuck friction plates. If not try it a couple of times, it has always worked for me, also if that does not work for you you have to take the side cover off of the engine (clutch side) and using a flat headed screwdriver, and a zip tie to hold the clutch lever back to the handle bar, place the screwdriver in between the clutch plates and gently pry them apart from each other, on your bike I believe you have 7 friction plates and 6 steel plates. ( if you have to remove the cover go get a gasket first).
