Yamaha V Star 650 Classic. Clutch seized from sitting too long. I think Any way to break it loose without taking the whole thing apart? External controls seem to work, but it won't disengage.

Hi, I would take it apart to free the clutch, there is another option that may work but thats up to you, put the bikes front wheel against a wall, put in gear hold the clutch in just to put presure on it, press the starter,all the best.
(Just to say I would always advise some one else to take it apart)

The first thing you need to check is the air filter. Sometimes critters can get into the airbox when a bike sits for awhile. Sounds crazy, but it has happened to me. If nothing is blocking the filter, give it a quick clean since you have it out.
Next things to check:
Faulty diaphragm
Improperly adjusted fuel level
Clogged or loose main jet
Faulty fuel pump
You may not be able to check these on your own, but these are the next likely culprits.
Hope this helped

It could be as simple as the cables need a small tool made specifically for oiling the cables from the grips down (you can get it at the dealership)....if after several attempts (It will need to penetrate all the way down the inside of the cables), it doesn't change contact me again.

From what you have described, you may have seized the engine. The brakes grabbing you mention may have been the pistons grabbing the bore. Do you have oil left in the engine after this happened?

The drives for a 650 and an 1100 are different part numbers, so it probably wouldn't fit.

However, you can buy what parts you need to replace here:
