So if you raise the revs to say about 4000 rpm and let the clutch out does it stall or judder or both will it engage at all and pull away ?

Zr 550 replaced clutch bike still wont engage 2nd or move up the gears when running

Did you adjust tension on the cable correctly? If all is installed correctly, then you have to check the gears - they may be worn.

In which case the clutch is not properly dis-engaging. Adjust the clutch cable properly, if this still doesn't fix it you will need to replace the clutch friction plates at the very least.

Do i need to be in gear to adjust clutch

In the past when I adjusted the clutch on my Virago, I would have the bike in gear...with engine off, make sure pulling in the clutch allows the bike to roll..... Then with the engine running I would adjust for the point at which the clutch would begin to engage upon release. Make sure when released, the clutch is fully engaged and isn't slipping.

How do I adjust the clutch? Clutch engages when

A high clutch pedal is good.
There should only be about a half inch of pedal freeplay, before you start to feel resistance.
So the clutch should not engage until it is almost fully released, near the top.
The makes shifting the easiest.

If the shifting is difficult when cold, then put the transmission in neutral and let the clutch out when you warm up the engine.
That will warm up the transmission oil.

Of course you could also check the transmission oil level and change it.
But your question makes me believe you may need more experience on a stick shift. Make sure you do the H pattern carefully, and do not get lazy and turn it into an X pattern.

CLUTCH problem

This is a problem that is very hard to solve on line... It could be human error.. But it could be because of power or carburation issues as well. Best thing I can tell you is to remove the spark plugs and tell me what color they are. Spark plugs are an excelent indicator of the true performance of the engine. Attach pictures of the porcilan and electrode area. This will help me determine if it is error or not.
