If I adjust the clutch to disengage properly then it slips, if I adjust it so that it does not slip then it will not disengage completely, I had a new clutch installed, can there be too many discs?

There are line up marks on pressure plate and the clutch basket these need to be inline.If these marks are not lined up the adjustment will be way off and clutch will not engage or disengage properly.the only other problem it could be is possibly is when old clutch was removed the was a plate left behind and thats why the clutch wont adjust properly.Hate to say but the only way to be sure is to open it back up and see how many friction and thrust plates are in there.Find out from your local dealer the exact # of friction and thrust plates the bike should have.Last it could be the wrong clutch kit completly which may not have the right thickness plates.Good luck.Hope this info helps you.

Thought my clutch was worn out....but after adjusting the cable, its not dragging itself. Need some explanation.


Hi, Teddy when your clutch wears out it will start to slip if you have excessive free play in your clutch cable/lever pulling in the clutch lever will not fully disengage the clutch plates and the end result is clutch drag when a clutch is properly adjusted the clutch plates completely disengage and there is no drag. Good luck and have a nice day.

2002 yz 125 when I put it in gear it will shut off acts like the clutch is not working when I adjust it on the handle bars it slips


Mechanical issue: clutch not disengaging completely...
engine off - put in gear and roll back and forth with clutch released does engine stop the bike from rolling? Now pull clutch lever in and try rolling again is clutch cable adjusted properly?
Electrical issue: bike thinks clutch is still engaged and kills motor when not in neutral
Is the clutch switch properly connected and working? Is it adjusted properly? Use a multimeter to read resistance across switch contacts does it change state when clutch is pulled in?

1992 gmc 5.7 350 nv3500 4wd standard transmission loses power while engine revs like my clutch is slipping, but no grinding gears and clutch pedal is fine. any ideas on what may be wrong


does sound like slipping clutch , you may not get all the symptoms at once , the slipping usually starts first then the hard gear change etc cant think what else it could be , may have oil contamination on clutch plate this would cause the slip , crank seal ? i think your going to have to drop the box and have a look keep me posted if you wish

How do I adjust the hydraulic clutch on a 1996 Chevy s-10?


The beauty of hydraulic clutches is there is no adjustment.
If your clutch is slipping it is all done.
if you are having issues with clutch disenguagement , then there is a possiblity of other componants needing attention...

Transmission slipping


This normally means your clutch is worn down and needs replacement. Much less likely is that the clutch pedal travel needs adjustment.

Replacement of the clutch requires removal of the gearbox and is much easier with a shop hoist. I'd recommend replacing the pressure plate assembly as well.

How do I adjust the clutch on my 1985 Kawasaki Eliminator? It slips at high RPM and the lever just barely has to be pulled to completely disengage it.


on either end of cable is a lock nut, loosen it and turn inside barrel piece counterclockwise to loosen it (try clutch move more or less to adjust)

Driving down the road a open the throttle to accelerate. the engine revs up but it takes the bike a few seconds to speed up. could it be clutch fluid? clutch is brand new.


Hello
A new clucth will slip a little at first. Its recommended to try to make the clucthes slip.
i just put in a set that instructed me to make the clutches slip.
A brand new set of clutches needs to seat and it will take a few times riding it before it does.

If they continue to slips after a few rides then you should have your master cylinder bled.
If the clutches are not engaging all the way, the clucthes will slip and motor revs but bike dont move.
if the clucthes are not disengaging all the way, the clutches drag, and the bike will edge forward because the clucthes are not disengaing from the motor.

Thats a pretty simple set up, hydraulic just needs to be bled all the way in the same manner you bleed a brake caliper.
once bled there is no adjustment and the clutches should disengage and engage within the first 1/2 inch of pulling in the lever.

Hope that helps, and don't worry about your new clucthes, they will slipp a little but will go away.
i'm sure of it.
Best Regards
Big Al

Clutch needs adjustment


as the clutch wears the "free pedal" is reduced ... its easy to adjust "free pedal" and important to do so .. when there is very little or no free movement above where the clutch engages/disengages then the clutch starts to wear rapidly ... if there are no other symptoms like clutch chatter, slipping or noise then the clutch plate likely has some life left if it is adjusted properly and promptly ..

Hi, I have 2002 Legacy L wagon. The clutch is engaging/disengaging very high. Can I adjust it back down?


Sorry your problem is easy ...all you need is a complete new clutch assy .
As the clutch is a self adjusting unit and the only thing that causes it is either you use it like a hotrod and slip the clutch when powering up OR rideing the clutch when on hills or at the lights,,,or the car has done a lot of miles..
But if the clutch drives 1/2 from the top then replace the lot dont replace just centre plate you want the
