04 yz85 clutch push rod stuck!

Recommended Posts

Hi I am rebuilding an 04 yz85. I'm going through the clutch right now and as I am trying to disassemble the clutch the PUSH ROD will not come out . I believe that it is supposed to be removed just by pulling it out... Please help..... I don't know what to do!!

Pull the actuator arm, and blow air through it. The rod will come out. Don’t loose the ball if it’s still inside.

Still have the same problem

Did you try this?

Do you have enough lube inside the axle?

Does it move back and forth with the actuator arm? 

Can you find a thin magnetic pencil? Would have to be a real strong one.

Can't get it out, engine has to come out, and be split. 

Is there a reason it has to come out?

Yes it moves a little and it needs to come out cuz its bad or the actuator arm is bad. When i pull the clutch it doesnt do anything. So i took the clutch cover off and watched it barley engage and disengage

Have you measured the clutch plates for correct thickness and to be within spec? Plates are more of a wear item than the pushrod.

You must have rust inside the axle cause they usually just fall out. Maybe spray pb blaster let soak. If you take arm out might be able to get wire or something to push it alitte.  Work back and fourth might come out. Only other way is like doc said split it ☺

I have not just messured the plates. They looked good. But my inner hub only had a few indentions.

That poor bike has been dry for a while. For the rod to rust and lock inside means it has not been ran for some time, was stored where it can get moisture in the engine, an had a rough life.
