There are several causes, TURN HANDLEBARS TO THE RIGHT BEFORE PROCEEDING to ensure the brake fluid will not spill onto the plastic, 1, remove the top of the mastercylinder cap and remove the plate inside the lid, inspect the breather hole and ensure it is clean and clear, 2, while the cap is removed check that the small hole at the bottom of the resivoir is clear, there are two holes, the smaller one is toward the center of the bike from the larger one. 3, Replace the brake fluid in the ststem with NEW DOT4 fluid and bleed.

Why does it drive well for 30 minutes but after that will go into gear but wont move?


I suspect that the full engagement of the clutch pressure plate is not being achieved
if a pressure plate is held at reduced application pressure , it will continuously slip marginally and this build up to a point where the clutch plate will not absorb any more heat and so it fades and slips completely ( same affect as brake fade from worn pads and too heavy brake application -like long down hill runs )
the area I would check is the clutch master cylinder as it appears that the compensating port is blocked , and holding pressure in the clutch line which with increasing heat from the clutch builds up more pressure and compounds the pressure plate problem
this is identical to a heavy truck clutch problem where full testing produced no problems , yet at 100 miles and on a range the clutch failed completely but when cooled down again tested as good
on replacing the clutch pressure plate and clutch plate it was revealed by a clutch specialist shop that the pressure springs were actually weaker that specifications and were in fact allowing the clutch top slip and so go into the fade situation

Cluth wont pump up no pressure


It sounds to me like they can't get the hydraulic clutch to build up pressure. Without pressure, the clutch will not engage. It's a very simple system, consisting of two major parts. The clutch master cylinder and clutch slave cylinder. Replacing both of them (recommended) would get you a good clutch pedal again. This is assuming, of course, the clutch installation was done properly with no problems.

There is no pressure when i press down my clutch, I just had it replaced about a year and a half ago. It didn't feel like the clutch went?


clutch master or slave cyl. could have gone out so you are no longer releasing clutch thats why no pressure on pedal. look for Brake fluid leak -clutch uses same type of fluid. or master cyl can leak or bypass internally and just not build pressure.

The clutch won't disenguage


If your clutch won't release properly, it will continue to turn the input shaft. This can cause grinding, or completely prevent your car from going into gear. Some common reasons a clutch may stick are:
  • Broken or stretched clutch cable - The cable needs the right amount of tension to push and pull effectively.
  • Leaky or defective slave and/or master clutch cylinders - Leaks keep the cylinders from building the necessary amount of pressure.
  • Air in the hydraulic line - Air affects the hydraulics by taking up space the fluid needs to build pressure.
  • Misadjusted linkage - When your foot hits the pedal, the linkage transmits the wrong amount of force.
  • Mismatched clutch components - Not all aftermarket parts work with your clutch.

  • Mismatched clutch components - Not all aftermarket parts work with your clutch.
Another problem associated with clutches is a worn throw-out bearing, sometimes called a clutch release bearing. This bearing applies force to the fingers of the spinning pressure plate to release the clutch. If you hear a rumbling sound when the clutch engages, you might have a problem with the throw-out.
