2010 T100 clunking gears

Picked up bike on 19th may 2012 with 1600 miles on clock and all was well. rode it for about 150 miles then gear changes started making a loud clunking noise and my wife (pillion) noticed the gear changes was jerky compared to when we picked the bike up. took it back to the dealer where they adjusted the cable on the handlebar and on the engine and said it was now fine but it is still clunking and jerky. wondering if it is thrust bearing,sticking plates or similar. any ideas ?

Could be burnt, or scorched clutch discs. DId you check the oil lately? I believe the Madasses have a wet clutch, right? Hope you didn't burn up the whole clutch basket. But you may have. Check the oil now!!!

SOURCE: '95 Yamaha YZ 125 clutch - stays in gear when clutch is pulled in

the plates will stick to each other because of oil
check the clutch lever at the motor and make sure it is moving the arm that pushes the pressure plate and make sure it is moving

SOURCE: Engine makes noise when it gets hot.

If the cam was adjusted at all, they may have miss-aligned TDC.

I doubt this, but this is something to put in your arsenal of argument against a poor service experience.

They should resolve this issue without claiming obvious solutions first.

They are not incorrect in that setting a carb lean will cause these issues. It may be beneficial to simply tweak the carb first and see if this helps. Reference the owners manual, or do your best to observe the color and smell of exhaust under throttle while adjusting the carb. Its important to make sure you do not lean this out to far, as you already may know.

FixYa's! Can we can a second opinon on this please?

SOURCE: Yamaha XJ600 diversion starter motor problem

sound like your starter gear might be missing a tooth or some other king of damage, this shouldnt be a costly repair, but I wouldnt ride too much as it is, if there is a chunk of the starter gear in the transmission, this could cause much damage and be very costly

Testimonial: "thanks for advice, unfortunately stater gears are within crankcase, which means total engine strip. Probably cheaper to get another engine!"

If tranny is manual shift you may have a bearing and or bad gear. Try changing tranny fluid. Check manual for correct fluid may use tranny fluid rather than gear oil. I recommend using Royal Purple fluid or gear oil. This very expensive but will slicken up the shifting and extend bearing and gear life.

Problem getting bike into gear while riding


If the problem only happens when the bike is cold, the oil could be the problem. If the clutch lever has excessive endplay, the clutch needs to be adjusted.

So, what is? Have them say that 3 times in writing. I know California has a lemon law. 3,000 miles? Take it back under warranty and tell them you'll have your attorney pick it up when they determine what cause dthe failure.

Bonneville T100 Gear Change


Do check if not drain and refill the gear box, but check with your dealer that it will not affect your warranty. a little self help may prevent time consuming and inconvenient repairs at this stage, but remember gears are clunky and come in for a lot of abuse, reliable as they are.
