Use thick bearing grease between the clutch spring and where it is coming in contact with that is causing the spring failure. This should extend your springs life. Check for any alignment issues that would cause the clutch spring to prematurely wear and break. The grease is just a temp. repair to extend spring life. Hope this helps.

Clutch problem the clutch pedal won't return back UP, why ?


indicates no fluid in the system or air in the system
in a hydraulic it requires fluid to make the clutch disengage and also fluid to make the pedal return from the pressure of the pressure plate
if it is a cable clutch, replace the cable as the inner cable is breaking and jamming in the case

When I depress my clutch the gears will not engage


If a hydraulic clutch, the fluid is low or has leaked, leading to air getting in the system. Thus the clutch will not disengage and let go of the gearbox.

If a cable clutch the cable has broken or gone right out of adjustment.

Also check the clutch pedal return spring, as these do break due to wear on the attachment hooks.

I have a 1994 yz125, when I pull the clutch leaver in it won't spring back.I thought it might be the clutch cable so I got a new one but it still does the same thing. how do I fix this?


Keenan:

I'm not too familiar with the YZ125. If the clutch lever (where the lower end of the clutch cable connects) is on the outside of the transmission case, see if you can push the lever back and forth. Feel for resistance If the clutch lever moves both ways freely, the clutch return spring in the clutch is broken, or the clutch has failed. You'll have to drain the engine oil and remove the clutch cover. Then remove and disassemble the clutch to replace the return spring... or take it to a shop and have them do it.

Pull in clutch whing nosie


Did you properly adjust the clutch AND the clutch cable after you put in the new cable??? Is the whine only when you pull in the clutch lever and if so when does it start, first portion of lever movement or middle or when the lever is all the way to the handlebar grip??? NO noise when clutch is fully released????

Did you get the balls back into the ramp assembly correctly and install them with multi purpose grease to hold them in position while assembling. Also check that the rest of the parts were assembled correctly.

As a last point confirm that the new caqble assembly is the correct part.

Clutch pedal to high is a new clutch cable required or can it be agusted manually for my honda crv 2000


Hello
When the clutch pedal gets high that means the clutch disk is worn out, as the disk thins from wear the clutch pressure plate springs move outward, that raises the pedal height. As far as a cable goes this car doesn't have one, the clutch is hydraulic, and all hydraulic clutches are self adjusting.

Kawasaki ninja zx9r clutch problem


On your bike there are two clutch parts that can wear and cause this problem. The broken spring should be replaced but is not causing the problem. Check the bottom of the clutch release shaft #13102. The end of the shaft may be broken, bent or severely worn. The part the shaft engages with is the clutch rod #46102. It could be bent, broken or severely worn. This part is inside the clutch hub. Just remove the five springs and then the outer cover plate and the rod should be accessible.

Crx cable clutch problem


The clutch assy. is worn out. When a clutch is new the springs on the pressure plate sit flat. When you push on the clutch the springs don't have to move far to disengage, making it easy to press on the clutch pedal. As the clutch wears the fingers of the clutch spring move out, clutch pedal effort and travel increases to the point that the clutch will not disengage anymore. Along the life of the clutch the cable can be adjusted to minimize this. You have reached the end of the adjustment, sorry for the bad news but the clutch needs to be replaced.

94 suzuki 800 intruder. clutch splips in high gear. can I adjust it? hydraulic clutch


No adjusting is possible.
Slip can be caused by several defaults:
- Wrong engine oil ( SAE 10w-40 API SE or SF only )
- Weak clutch springs ( free spring length : 34mm ( 1.34in ) MINIMUM
- Worn clutch disk 2(internal teeths ) ( wear limit 3.15mm ( 0.124in ) ) This is the last disk, against the clutch center
- Worn clutch disks 1 (internal teeths) ( wear limit 2.62mm ( 0.103in ) )
- Clutch plates ( thikcness between 1.55 and 1.65mm / 0.0610 and 0.0649 inches
- Damaged pressure plate ( cracks round the spring holes )

To check the clutch parts, the right engine cover must be removed.
Take attention while loosening the clutch spring bolts!
Drain engine oil, and set engine into first gear ( this locks the clutch for an easy loosening of the spring bolts )

Hope it helps
