Is the motor cold or hot

cold..

So, I'm not sure I understand. Cold oil makes the plates stick together, preventing a clean disengagement.

That, or the basket might have some minor notching in it.

Did you set the clutch lifter in straight?

you got me,, cold oil is thick... yes the basket has notching , lifter is in right, with roller bearing and washer, there is a steel plate that is not flat ... and BTW what is the deal with the washer

on top of the outter basket I hread it has to go in a spec way/

Yes that washer does go in with the rounded side facing out/ flat side sitting on the bearing.

What do you think about the non flat steel plate?

If it disengages cleanly when hot, I'd ignore it. If it doesn't, you will be putting stress on shift forks and gear engagement cogs.

If your like me, I don't use the clutch much to upshift or down shift anymore. Cause I"m not under acceleration that much anymore. Too old.

Me I am 51 ''' OK got home from work checked washer it on right bottom facing out flat sitting on bearing ''. And I ck the basket again and its nothed pretty good

Don't know what to do now , don't want to pull the motor again''''. And idea other then basket file

Well, it won't fix it self.

Get a quality file, and take care of in in about an hour.

You can do it on the motor, as long as you COMPLETELY TAPE OFF the surrounding areas and keep all the metal out.

So you are saying , if I find down basket it will go into neut?

Sorry ,,,file down basket...

Sorry ,,,file down basket...

I'm saying that you have clutch issues, one of them is your basket.

Disengagement is better with smooth clutch basket tangs and no warped discs.

It should go into neutral better, but I wouldn't count on it. Race clutches just plain drag.
