Is something missing in the actuator linkage assembly? Has this problem been there since you obtained the bike? Too much free play at the clutch lever (should be ~1/2 to 3/4 inch)? Wrong number of clutch disks? Are the clutch springs installed correctly and not bottomed out. Inspect the hub and the inside of the outer drum of the clutch. Look for badly worn spots in either that can hang up the release of the disks. Leave the clutch cover off so that you can observe clutch operation (engine off). The outermost plate should move outward somewhat when you pull the lever. Put transmission in second gear and rock the bike while operating the clutch. It should allow the bike to move without turning the engine. If the whole clutch moves out, then there may be a missing/broken snap ring which holds the outer drum of the clutch to the transmission shaft.

Hello I have replaced the clutch plates,the release cylinder seals and rebuilt the clutch master cylinder. There is no leaks and the system has been bled and it feels fine. When I pull the clutch lever in...


Back wheels often move when the lever is pulled in...this is due to hydraulic drag caused by the oil on the clutch plates and is totally normal. You should be able to stop the wheel by hand with the lever in.
With the lever out the clutch is fully engaged and the engine will therefore stall with the brake on...
As long as the wheel rotation can be stopped by hand with the clutch pulled in it's behaving normally...
Rocking the bike in gear is a method that's used to seperate the plates on a clutch that is dragging...usually if it's not been used for a while.

Old dirty fluid may still be caught in the seals of the piston or may have damaged them.

Rattle and slippage when engaging clutch, only when hot after a ling ride. does not rattle or slip at all when clutch is fully engaged.


Clutch plates may be worn. You would have to pull the side cover to inspect them. Honda clutch's always rattle at an idle when in neutral. If you just pull in the clutch lever the rattle will go away. Let the lever out and it will rattle again. As for the slippage, if your clutch cable is binding at all it will keep the clutch from fully engaging when you release the handle. This will cause the clutch to slip for a second or two until the cable fully releases from the bind. Any resistance in the cable and you should replace it.

What kind of parts are insde the chain sprket cover where the cluth line enters the case . My cluth line is tight not engageing. I looked at pictures on the ent apartently im missing like a a piece of...


This is inside the casing cover. Just a lever for the clutch cable to connect to, a spring, The clutch release mechanism, a seal and a clutch push rod. The clutch release has a threaded screw for adjusting the clutch and a locking nut for the screw. The only other thing is a metal bracket.

What exactly is the problem? The lever is hard to pull? The clutch won't engage to make the bike go forward? The clutch will not dis-engage, the motor will not stop driving the bike forward? What?

Wire clutch adjustment


Pulling the lever releases the clutch. Disengageing it so you don't go. Ok, in order to engage the clutch fully, you release the lever and you must have at leas 1/4 inch free play.
If it is not going in gear easily, you probably have too much free play and you are not fully disengageing.. There is the possibility of an internal adjust ment Try the above and let me know how or if that works. Clutch lever pulled by closing your fist releases the clutch for shifting.
