Hi, Jeff and the usual suspects are:
1. Piston stuck in the caliper due to contamination.
2. Piston stuck in the master cylinder due to contamination.
3. Incorrect DOT # of brake fluid.
4. Warped or bent brake rotor.
5. Incompatible brake pads.
6. Incorrect caliper spacing.
7. Not enough free play at pedal or lever.
8. Collapsed brake line inner lining.
9. Excessive heat buildup due to riding the pedal or lever.

SOURCE: clutch lever removal

You need to loosen the adjustment at the inside of the lever as loose as you can, then use the slack in the cable to bring the holder down and out a small slot in the lever. You should not have to disconnect the cable at the transmission end but if you still find it impossible to remove, doing so will give you a bit of extra slack too.

SOURCE: Where is the fuel filter located on my 2008 Suzuki

Some bike did not come from the factory with a fuel filter. If it has one it would be under the fuel tank in the fuel line before the fuel pump or carbs.

This sounds like heavy duty springs in the clutch. Just have to get used to it. I suspect this is a cable actuated clutch correct? If it isn't then that does sound a little strange. Usually hydraulic clutch lever action is pretty easy... Good luck HDTV GURU JAY

Check the fluid level in the front master cylinder. Chances are you need to add some brake fluid and then bleed air out of the system. There is a bleeder valve on the handlebar at the lever and one on top of the wheel caliper. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Gsxr 600 2008 brake light


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

There are only 2 switches involve to activate the brake light. Disconnecting both one a time would help you determine which is faulty if ever. In some instances, it would be a pinched wire pair going to the front brake lever.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
