Clutch problem

Recommended Posts

I have a 1985 kx80 and recently replaced the clutch plates and springs. The clutch basket is not grooved. I've put everything back together, and now the clutch won't disengage/engage when I pull the clutch lever. I put everything back together as per the service manual. I've even replaced the clutch cable. What am I missing on this???

Did you oil the plates before you put them back together? If not, take it apart and lightly rub oil on all of the plates. It helps them to disengage. Also, on those years of the kx80, there are washers on both sides of the clutch basket. If you're missing one of them, the clutch basket might be binding.
