Question about Keeway Motorcycles
find a real mechanic that can reason out the failure and fix the fault
indicates a problem in the adjustment or a cable problem or if hydraulic , air in the system

First thing is to make sure you don't have motor oil in the engine. Wet clutches and motor oil are not compatible. Use only the oil sold at motor cycle shops. Do that before tearing into the engine or making any radical adjustments. Good Luck -Ned-

Check to ensure the hydraulic mechanism is working properly and hasn't leaked. If it has leaked or there is air in the system, it wont allow the clutch to disengage properly and would be akin to a clutch cable being out of adjustment or broken. If the yydraulic release is working as it should be, you may have oil fouled clutch plates. Oil fouled plates would cause the bike to jump/lurch from a stop and could also stick together.

Check for a lean air/fuel mixture. That would cause the symptoms you describe when under load. Remember; a cold air/fuel mix is denser than one that is hot so you could be too lean when it gets hot. Good luck and safe riding.

Good news, you just need adjust the clutch cable..
Always order the part for your model and year when getting parts and make sure it matches in length with the old one. Note how much cable is sticking out of the housing.
Is it 3 1/2 inches or 4 inches or 2 inches. make sure the new one matches.
Put the new cable on with lots of slack.Slack at the adjuster, and slack at the handlebar adjuster
Now pull the lever in, it will be easy because of the slack.let it stay there.
It will stay against the grip.
As you tighten the cable adjustment down by the cover, you'll notice the clutch lever move out.
Once it reaches the top, stop adjusting and pull it in again.
Continue adjusting and pulling the lever until the lever springs back to the top.
You can feel resistence which is the clutches disengaging.
Make sure there is 1/8" free play when the lever springs back.
Now turn the clutch cable adjust on the handlebar outward, which will remove the rest of the slack.
Only leave 2mm slack on the lever.
Now start your bike up and it should work like new.
You want your clutch to disengage within the first 1/2" of pulling the lever in.
This ensures the clutches are definately disengaged by the time you get the lever pulled back to the grip when shifting.
If your clutches are slipping or dragging no matter how you adjust the cable then your clutches may need replaced.
But sounds to me like its just an adjustment.
Hope to be helpful
