Question about Honda VFR 800 Motorcycles

2 Answers

I have a 2006 vfr 800 and had to replace clutch lever (came home and bike was on its side in the garage). After replacing the clutch lever I barely have any pressure and when pressed the bike is very hard to move manually. Can't start the bike in gear with the clutch pressed or if started in neutral the bike stalls when I press the clutch and shift into gear. The lever has good motion pressed and released but I figured it must need to be bled. So my question is how to bleed the clutch myself without having to take it in to a mechanic. Diagrams or detail specifics would be great. Thanks! Albert

Your clutch lever is hydrolic and uses dot 4 brake fluid just like the brakes. Remove the seat and on the "left leg side if riding" there is a bleed nipple for the clutch. Remove the bolts for the rod that goes into the engine to engage the clutch and use a clamping wrench to hold the pin in place so when you grab the lever it forces fluid out of the nipple and does not push the pin out. Then just bleed it just like a brake line. you should already be flushing all the brake fluid out of the bike every other year for regular maintenance.

2000 Honda, VFR 800. Clutch began to slip when in gear, sometimes worse than others. One time clutch would not engage at all, had to tow. At home with engine cool, clutch worked fine. Clutch springs?

Hi, Daniel and the usual suspects are:
1. Clutch controls improperly adjusted.
2. Insufficient clutch spring tension.
3. Friction discs or steel discs are worn or warped

I crashed my bike on the clutch side and now it still gets power to the lights but wont start

if you mean the bike went down on its left side ie the clutch lever side then i would check the safety switch on the clutch lever this has most likely been damaged.

Dead battery, don't know where the battery is located but believe it is under the seat. Don't know how to remove the seat.

put ur key in the helmet lock on the left hand side of the bike turn the key so the metal hoop is open! then put ur hand behind it and you will find a lever push it down and the seat will move towards the back of the bike and the seat will come off!! the lever will only move with the helmet clasp open! hope this helps paul
