Reinstalled clutch, bike stuck in neutral!


Recommended Posts

Hi, First post.  So I cleaned the centrifugal oil filter and while I had the crankcase cover off, I decided to inspect the clutch plates.  After reassembly, the bike sounds great but will not go into gear.  Neutral light is on suggesting its in neutral.  Im 99% sure the plates went back in the correct order as I only had them loose for a few minutes.  My one concern is that when I reinstalled there was about an inch of play (the discs inside the clutch basket)  I don't remember that being there before disassembly.  Thanks for any insight!

A clutch could be completely removed from a machine and it wouldn't change anything about the gear shifting mechanism....

That's also why you can shift with or without using the clutch... It disconnects the drive from the crankshaft assembly, but does nothing to the shifting mechanics...

I don't see how anything you mentioned would affect the machines ability to change gears...
