    Angry 02 intruder 1400 clutch problem?

    when letting out the clutch it grabs @ the end making a less than desireable start. the bike has only 900 miles in it. any ideas what might the matter be?

    The hydraulic clutch is pretty 'on or off', and takes some getting used to. There is no adjustment possible. But every couple years you should change the hydraulic fluid...as micro-bubbles and moisture (from condensation due to tempurature changes) collect in the fluid, the clutch tends to not release all the way, so the 'on or off' gets worse. Eventually, on a hot day or during a long ride, the clutch will refuse to release, and you will be unable to get it into gear.
    You can change the clutch fluid the same way you bleed brakes: poor in fresh fluid at the master cylinder while you pump it out the bleeder on the clutch slave cylinder, which is behind the chrome cover right behind the engine case on the left side of the bike.

    How did you make out with changing your fluid? My cousin is having the same problem with his 1400.
