Make sure plates are seated and not loose when assembled. There should be no slack in plates.

Lose the Honda transmission oil. It may have swollen the cork on the friction plates. Go with 10w40 in the gearbox. Any major brand; Mobil, Shell, Quaker State, Pennzoil, etc.. Try the new oil and give the cork a week to shrink back down > if they will. You may need to put in a new set of plates.

The clutch lever must have been pushed in when i tried to install the push rod the first time so the push rod didn't get pushed in all the way.

SOURCE: Clutch push rod will not depress to engage

go to this http://www.cmsnl.com/yamaha-rt1-19701971_model8356/partslist/A-09.html and then click on "view big image", this will give you a diagram of the clutch etc,, the adjustment (No. 26) may need looking at, or (No.11,12,) have broken.Basically you turn 26 in (clockwise) untill you feel light resistance then back off 1/2 turn (been years since i worked on one of these!) this should give you freeplay, have you just got the bike?, and do you think it has been stripped lately(ie the clutch). PS I am not affiliated with the web site i offered above, just a handy reference for you maybe? cheers

SOURCE: replaced clutch in 3000GT, all new parts, plate,

Are you sure the clutch disc is installed in the correct direction?
Admittedly, I haven't seen the clutch disc for a Mitsubishi 3000GT, but I have seen my share in many makes of vehicles.

The clutch disc may be one of those that will install in either direction. Some clutch discs are made so that the inner hub with springs, can be installed towards the crankshaft, or towards the tranny.

My 2001 Hyundai elantra won't go anywhere in any gear the clutch pedal still feels good and strong though and makes no noise or chatter when engaged or disengaged where do I begin


if cable check the cable for broken wires --replace the cable
if hydraulic , replace the clutch master cylinder
even though the pedal feels good if it is a cable it may be jamming and not allowing full pressure on the clutch plate by the pressure plate
same with the hydraulic system
have some one operate the clutch pedal while you check the throw out arm at the box bell housing
It should have around 2" or more movement

Clutch pedal stays on floor and cant shift into gear if started in gear car will jump, has brand new clutch cable i just replaced


Did you replace the clutch and/or cable yourself? If so, did it work properly at any point? If so, did it seem to 'break,' i.e., did you feel a sudden snap of any kind as you depressed the clutch, and it has stayed on the floor since? If that is not the case, please provide more info. The symptoms indicate that the clutch cable disconnected at one end or the other, or else some component on the clutch end failed. I would start with the connection at the clutch pedal. Ensure it is connected, and then pull up on the pedal to see whether there is any resistance. If it is connected, but there is no resistance, then the cable is likely disconnected at the other end. It can happen very easily. Sometimes they seem to be in place, but work loose or get caught at just the right angle the first time you engage it, and it pops out of place. Good luck!

In which case the clutch is not properly dis-engaging. Adjust the clutch cable properly, if this still doesn't fix it you will need to replace the clutch friction plates at the very least.

Clutch not disengaging


Slippage
  • Slippage is a clutch problem that occurs when the pressure plate is unable to hold the friction disc against the flywheel tightly when the clutch is engaged. This causes the disc to rotate at a different speed than the flywheel. The high temperature caused by friction against the disc will eventually damage the clutch plate and necessitate a replacement. On clutches with mechanical linkage, adjustment can forestall replacement for a time.
    If you notice the engine revving abnormally as the clutch is released, and the car accelerates gradually, then it could be a slippage problem. It's possible that grease or oil on the disc is causing the slippage or the engine mount could be broken, causing the linkage to be bound up by an improperly moving engine.
    Another common cause of slippage is when the friction plate is simply worn out from use. A clutch will not last forever, and over time the clutch will begin slipping. Adjustments will not fix this problem, as a worn out friction plate will require complete replacement.
Vibration
  • A grabbing or chattering clutch is an indicator that there is a problem inside the clutch mechanism. It is an easily noticed problem. Symptoms include a vibration or jerking as the clutch is released, especially when accelerating from a stop. This problem may be the result of a damaged or broken disc, flywheel or pressure plate. It may also be caused by loose springs or worn engine mounts, according to the Integrated Publishing website on Clutch Troubleshooting.

Put clutch into gear but no movement


Replacing the clutch is fairly easy on most motorcycles. A factory repair manual is helpful and suggested, but in a nutshell, here's the proceedure.
There is a round cover on the right side of the engine, this is the clutch cover. After draining the oil, remove the cover and this will expose the clutch pressure plate that will be retained with a number of washered bolts and springs. Remove the pressure plate, and the clutch plates can be removed. There will be alternating friction and steel plates-remove them all and keep them in a stack in the order they were removed. Soak the new friction plates in oil before installation. Install the new plates starting and ending with friction, alternating a steel plate in between.Be aware that some motorcycles have a different first and last friction plate, your parts dealer should know that when you buy the parts.
After it's stacked reinstall pressure plate with new springs, bottom out the washered bolts and no additional torque is required. Reinstall cover with new gasket, fill with oil and adjust clutch lever so it has enough slack to slide a quarter in between the lever and perch. Good luck!

My rpm turns higher but my speed still remains the same.


Sounds like you have a slipping clutch. You can check your owners manual for the proper clutch lever free play. A quick check would be to see where you are starting to engage the clutch or friction zone. With the bike warmed up and running, shift into 1st gear and then start to slowly releash the clutch lever. If the clutch does not start to engage until the lever is 80% released, then you can try adjusting the clutch lever free play. You can do this simply by sliding the rubber cover from the clutch lever. If the cable end is showing a lot of threads then you can loosen the larger lock nut, a serrated looking wheel with a slot in it, and give the cable end a few turns in. Lock in the lock nut and start the bike and see if the friction zone is catching earlier. Try adjusting to get it to catch within the middle of the travel. Once you feel you have the clutch adjusted, give it a road test to see if the engine will not rev higher without a corresponding increase in motorcycle speed. The owners manual will give you a precise range where the clutch lever free play should fall, usually measured from the end of the clutch lever. If the clutch seems to be adjusted properly, then a worn out clutch could be the problem.

Good luck.

Can't get the clutch on a suzuki 800 intruder to hold pressure


Oil should be 10W40 SF or SG grade. Anything else will cause the clutch to slip. There must be freeplay on the clutch cable (0.4-0.6in). Adjust handle bar clutch lever screw all the way out then adjust at gearbox end and revert to handle bar adjustment for fine adjustments. If this does not solve the problem take the clutch apart and measure driven plate thickness (3.12in minimum for the 1st plate and 2.62in minimum for the others)
Measure clutch spring free length. There are 2 sets (4 springs each). 0.97in minimum and 0.92in minimum respectively.
A slipping clutch is caused by incorrect friction, that is incorrect oil or insufficient pressure. Pressure is supplied by the springs on the discs and driven plates.
If the discs, driven plates or bucket is worn it will cause slippage.
If you pull in the clutch and it disengages but starts to re- engage after a short period you will need to replace the clutch master cylinder seals.

IVE PUT MY CLUTCH BACK TOGETHER AND ITS WONT WORK


have you checked that the clutch plates have been placed correctly and that the cable has the correct length, It should have a max of 5mm Slack so it fully dis-engages when let go
Also if clutch plates are not correct it wont work, you should start with a friction plate with odd groves, Then steel spacer, then next friction plate till you end up with last plate being a friction plate The last plate is also a plate with odd groves/design unlike the plates in between which are all similar

My clutch in my rm 250 wont disengage i know the pressure plate is moving but it still wont disengage?


If you put synthetic oil or an oil with "Special" additives in the gearbox the cork on the fiber friction plates may be swollen. The swelling can cause the clutch to stay engaged, Only use standard 10w40 motor oil in the gearbox. You will need new fiber friction plates if that is what has happened. Normally the only other three things that would cause the problem are a worn shift arm, a bent push rod and a badly worn cable.

Clutch wont engage


It sounds like the clutch must be incorrectly assembled. No offense meant, is is easy to miss one little thing. Go to the site below and look at the clutch diagram. Note that the assembly begins and ends with a friction plate and that a metal pressure plate goes between each friction plate. You should have 7 metal pressure plates and 8 friction plates.

The clutch outer basket seldom goes bad unless hit with a hammer or a tree. Why did it need to be replaced? Did you compare the new OEM hub to the old one? They may have given you the wrong basket. The tighter the cable the less likely the clutch will engage. You should have 1/4" end play at the handlebar lever. By the way, exactly what oil did you put in the gearbox after replacing the clutch? Okay, this is a good start. Post a comment if you need to get back to me.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!
