  1. Clutch issue CB125

    Mechanics Corner
    So was cleaning up my oil filter & strainer for the first time today, replaced the gasket, crankcase cover and oil, and at the end of it all found that there was no tension in the clutch! After trying to change the freeplay on both the lower and upper adjustment points, I realised I may have...

  3. GS 500f Starting issue

    Mechanics Corner
    I have an issue with my 05 Suzuki GS 500f not starting without me clutch starting it. This issue started after I tightened the chain. For a few weeks before this, I'd had trouble starting but I could eventually get the bike to start just my turning the handle bars for a while and continuing to...
  4. 1995 Suzuki Intruder GL800 Clutch(?) problem?

    New Member Pitstop
    I'm not sure how I would go about diagnosing this problem. When I ride for any length of time longer than 20 minutes, if I turn the bike off, then turn it back on, riding it feels like the clutch is half pulled sometimes. I can rev the throttle and get no additional power in all gears. When I...
  5. Clutch not working after Clutch Cable install.

    Mechanics Corner
    I've seen tons of these posts but none of them have a definitive answer so I'm going to post my problem here. I recently purchased a used 2007 YZF600R and the clutch lever had become quite a pain to pull, bad enough that it would be almost impossible to let it go slowly it was that hard. So I...
  6. 94 Suzuki RF900R Clutch Basket Question

    Suzuki
    I had gotten this bike in a trade and don't know much about it. It is a 94 RF900R. I was told it was bored to a 1020, rear is was stretched and just learned that it doesn't have the stock clutch basket on it. I am no guru with motorcycles at all and it sat for a bit. When I started messing...

    Mechanics Corner
    I have a 1981 CB900 Custom with 24,000 miles on it. The clutch has 6 normal steel gear plates (Clutch Plate A, Honda part 22321-425-000) and 1 unusual and at this point nearly impossible to find steel gear plate (Clutch Plate B, Honda part 22322-425-000). I have seen this referred to as the...

  9. GS500F clutch issues

    Mechanics Corner
    I bought my first bike a week ago (yay!). It's in pretty solid condition, but I do have some clutch-related issues with it. If the bike is in gear, and the clutch lever is all the way in, the bike still pulls forward slightly. This is regardless of if it was just started or if it has been ridden...
  10. '80 GS450L Clutch Question

    Mechanics Corner
    So I received this bike as a gift from a friend. Just got it running decently, finally idles without the choke. When I received it, It had a broken clutch cable. What might cause a clutch cable to break besides age and wear on the cable? I took the cable housing off and threaded a piece of cable...

    The Boulevard
    I'm about to take my shotgun to my bike! JK. Maybe. I am SO frustrated. So I decided to put these super huge "Longhorn" handlebars on my bike, that I picked up at a local shop that mainly deals in Harley parts. the bars are 1" diameter and I have them mounted on 4" high Harley risers. (on my...

    Mechanics Corner
    Hey, This is my first post here. I just bought a 1988 Suzuki 750 Intruder and, after riding it for about a week, I noticed I had to keep pulling the clutch further and further back for it to disengage until, eventually, it stopped disengaging completely. After reading some posts, I bled the...

  19. 01 VZ800 possible clutch problems

    Suzuki
    Under load my VZ800 seems to ever so slightly surge. the engine speed sounds constant and so does power delivery. My first inclination is that the clutch plates are slipping very lightly, but under full load in high gear they lock up solid. I can't get it to fully involuntarily slip at all...
  20. Brights flash when clutch pulled all the way in

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    When I pull my clutch all the way in, the brights flash. I've poked around in the user manual and service manual both to see if that's normal or if it's a typical problem. No dice. (I can think of no reason for this to be normal, though.) Outside of ticking off a driver because of the flashing...
