    clutch Clutch Replacement Nightmare

    So I have a full Hinson clutch kit on 2013 RM-z450. After a fair amount of abuse it's obvious I need new plates/springs. Without going into the lengthy explanation of my problems in replacing (TIP- along with plates and springs, always get new spring bolts, main bolt washer, and clutch cover gasket. Lesson learned grrrrrrrr....) So here I am tightening the main nut that holds the basket on, to the recommended 65lbs, and Pop!!!! Now there is no tension on the clutch lever (at the handlebar) and the lever/arm on the stator side of the case flops back and forth; and I'm nauseous..... What did I break? I haven't opened up the ignition/stator side case yet to see what's up. Looking at the Suzuki schematics it's super difficult to tell what that bolt is connected to. Thanks!

    2008 ttr 110

    Hi everyone. Looking at a first bike for my daughter. Ran across this 110, looking to get a very good deal due to the issues. I can wrench most anything myself. How do you feel about the comments? For Sale: i have a 2008 ttr-110 for sale. has electric start, decent tires, pro taper high bars, and a two brothers exhaust. just finished up a rebuild on it. everything in the bottom end was in spec. bored .50 over, new piston and rings, gaskets. valves were adjusted. the bad it shifts into neutral and first gear and runs perfect, but for some reason it wont hit 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. if i adjust the clutch a different way it will go into 1st and 2nd but not neutral. im not sure what the issue is exactly. The guy states he was just in the bottom end.. I would say he's sounds capable of fixing the issue himself, but found out many problems. Just figure'd I would post and get your thoughts on this. Thanks!!

  4. Hey everyone, As the title says when i pull the clutch in on my 04 KTM 125 it either stalls unless i give it a bit of gas and will move slowly forwards with the clutch lever fully pulled in. The clutch is a magura hydraulic clutch and the problem only just happened on a recent ride and never has happened before. I put some extra oil in before the ride due to a very small oil leak from the gasket where the hydraulic clutch slave connects to the engine, not sure if this changes anything though. So my main question is would it be the air in the system for the hydraulic clutch or would it be the actual clutch plates or basket (really hoping it is not). Thanks for reading hope everything made sense, feel free to ask questions.

    kx250f KX250F CLUTCH HUB MOVES?

    I recently tore my 2006 kx250f down to replace a broken case. Its all back together and everything works properly except the clutch. Its a full Hinson clutch basket, hub, plates etc. Plates are in great shape, basket has no notches nor does the hub. When I pull the clutch lever in the Pressure plate lifts but it takes the basket with it. Then when you let go it gets stuck like that and you have to push the whole assembly down by hand. Then pull the lever and it does it all over again. I noticed the plates were a little hard to pull apart but i think that's just from the oil. I have no clue whats going on. Everything seems to be put together right but i can't figure it out. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Does anyone have a used Rekluse for one of these bikes they would like to sell? The new ones are $600+, and that's a helluva lot for a clutch - Rekluse or not.

    help gear shift

    Really need some help just replaced crank seals done everything by the book put it all back together no probs. have not attached chain and sprocket kit yet. Went to put it in gear not running of course as I was testing the angle of the shifter made a louder click than normal maybe because there is no trans oil in there? then I went to put it back in neutral and nothing its well and trully stuck going to have to remove the clutch yet again. Any ideas what I may of done before I go to far?
  8. While riding recently, I have noticed that my bike (2006 YZ85) does not like to go into 1st gear. I will be trying to take off and stall, only to notice the bike was in 2nd the whole time. It will take quite a few kicks on the lever to even get the bike to go into 1st. It is very irritating. I recently went into the clutch side of the engine to replace some gaskets. Could I have messed something up or knocked something out of place? There are no weird noises, the bike just doesn't shift down normally when I am at a dead stop. I hate stalling because it makes me look like a trail noob compared to my friends. Any help appreciated.
  9. We picked up a used 2016 CRF125 Big wheel that is in pretty solid shape. One thing I've noticed is that when shifting into any gear, releasing the clutch lever and then giving it some throttle I get a fairly noticeable "jerk". It feels like maybe the clutch is engaging late even though I've fully released the lever. I don't have a ton of experience with bikes and I'm comparing the feel to the CRF230 we own which is fairly smooth when switching between speeds. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Clutch let out

    I have a 2008 Honda crf 450x and when I turn to the right the clutch lets out further and when I turn to the left the clutch lets out close. Does anyone know how to fix it?

    530 clutch issues

    So... clutch works fine the hole day riding then i go back home to do a oil change, first one after top end rebuild. After that i leave my house and ride for 10min then suddenly clutch loses pressure completely but comes back little bit after few pumps. So then i check the fluids, and there really isn't any. I fill it up and pump the air out of the system so no more air coming out but sill lacking pressure. Now here it starts getting interesting, when i hold my clutch it engages the clutch but after 5 sec holding it in it loses all pressure. Also it feels very soft when the clutch lever is all the way out when i start pulling it engages. I have bled it the correct way and got all the dirty stuff out. There are no visible leaks and i have replaced the slave gasket. All help is appreciated

    2015 kx250f problems

    Hi guys any response would be great. So I just got this 2015 kx250f like 3 weeks ago and I haven't got to riding it that much but since then I've already noticed a few things that are a little abnormal. Whenever the bike is warmed up or even ridden for a while the clutch seems to be jerky and not smooth when taking off from stop. what could be causing this jerkyness? I've replaced the oil in the bike and adjusted the clutch line, nothing helped. When the bike is rolling I can shift the bike into neutral but not when stopped (while the bike is running of course). Also the one that is really concerning me- whenever the bike is cold started(and idling), idling( when warmed up) or cruising in low rpm and trying to accelerate I hear this knocking noise. But whenever I'm revving the bike just a little bit all the way to high rpms the noise seems to go away. It doesn't loose any power and it's only at really low rpms. I can confirm it's coming from the engine and not the chain since I've adjusted the chain to spec. Thanks in advance

    XR400 Clutch Cable Routing

    Hey guys, just got a new clutch cable for the XR and found that I may have routed in incorrectly. Since I got the bike with no clutch cable on it to begin with I am not entirely sure just how it is supposed to be routed. Right now I have it routed through the handle bars and down the right side of the bike in between the headers. The problem is that it is tight around turns and rubs on the header as well. Is it supposed to be centered along the frame rail with the oil lines? If there a place which has the location for this that would be great to know. I have looked in the manual but have come up with nothing so any help is appreciated!

    Yz 125 (04) clutch alignment

    Hi guys I have a question. someone who knows how to assemble the clutch of yz125 04 what is the order of disk assembly because the steel plates has sharp and soft edges which way they go in clutch and 2 of them is thicker than others where they go ? And another thing on all friction plates got some letters IKT and FP what direction they go whit letters backward or facing to clutch cover ? Here some picture to show u what i mean. Sorry for my bad English dudes .
  15. I got a Clake 2 system (easy pull hydraulic clutch + left hand rear brake) but I can'y get the clutch to work properly. I'm pretty sure that I've bled out any air but the slave doesn't seem to move the stock clutch actuation arm enough when the slave unit is in the stock bracket that held the OEM clutch cable. This is on a 2017 YZ250FX. It seems like the movement arc of the end of the clutch actuation arm doesn't allow the rod from the slave cylinder to move straight in and out without binding. Has anyone put a Magura hydraulic clutch or a Clake 2 or Clake Pro Lever on a 2014+ YZ250FX or YZ250F? If so, did you use the stock bracket for the slave unit or did you make or buy a different bracket?
  16. Greetings everyone, I'm looking for opinions or experience on this 'issue'. I got my Beta new a little over a year ago. I noticed since the beginning that it shifts a bit rough/stiff compared to any of the other bikes I've had (KX450,YZFs, GSXR1000). This feels like an extension of the same issue... it doesn't like going into neutral very easily. If I get my fingers out of the way and pull the clutch lever to the grip, it definitely helps but I still feel it a bit. I've already adjusted the lever as far out as I want it. Is there more adjustment I need to do to the hydraulic clutch? Anybody else notice this about their Beta? I think I have about 30 hours on it, I'd have to check. Already changed the oil a couple times on this, but as I mentioned it's been the same since I've had it. I did take it to the shop to inquire about it, of course they said it's fine. Thanks for your input.

    Clutch drag adjustment?

    I have a 2008 CRF250X, it is my first dirt bike. I feel like there is something wrong with either the clutch cable, its adjustments or the clutch pack/pressure plate. Here are the symptoms from different scenarios: 1) Bike is cold, it is in first gear, moving the bike forward or backward is extremely hard while the clutch lever is pulled in. Rear tire is trying to move the piston it feels like. Once I get it going it gets a bit easier to roll. 2) Bike is cold, it is in neutral, when I start the bike and let it run for a minute or two, get on the bike pull the clutch, hold the front brake and put the bike in first gear the bike instantly stalls while jerking forward. 3) Bike is cold, it is in first gear, I try to start the bike with the clutch pulled in, it jerks forward a bit but starts. Once the bike starts and oil is flowing around it does not jerk any more and bike can be almost freely pushed around while it is in first gear and clutch is in. So to me it feels like when the bike is cold and engine not running, no matter how much I pull the clutch, it does not fully disengage the drive train. Once the bike starts it looks like the clutch starts to work fine. Is this normal? Is it a worn or badly adjusted clutch cable? Is the clutch bad and needs service? Not enough oil in the tranny? Wrong oil in the tranny? (Shell Rotella non synthetic)
  18. I would like to start off by saying that I am a new rider and never been on a bike with an auto clutch. That's not to say that I wouldn't be interested in trying one out, even though I will probably never have one. I bought my first bike at 29 and a year later I'm still a pretty terrible rider, but it is still a blast. I bought a motorcycle to have fun and no other reason. So to the question, if someone can buy an auto clutch and it makes riding more fun for THEM then why not? A lot of people say that it prevents you from learning proper clutch skills etc etc, but what does it matter if you have more fun?

    Rekluse problems

    I am having an awful time with my EXP 3.0. I have a 2016 CRF450R. Since I have installed (and reinstalled many, many times) this clutch it seems to have never worked properly. When I first installed it all seemed to be well, including break in. Since then my bike began stalling. So a week or so ago I called (really good customer support by the way) and spoke with someone at Rekluse. He suggested I remove the red adjustment springs and install the blue, for a total of six blue adjustment springs. I did that, to no avail. I since have reinstalled the three red for a total of three blue and three red adjustment springs (just like it was shipped, "medium"). Lifter rod is seated properly. My latest issue is this: 1) With the correct free play I pull in my clutch but WITHOUT releasing the clutch I give it gas and the bike starts moving as if I were releasing the clutch (which I am not). 2) So, I then increase free play but when I do this and (pulling in the clutch) shift into first gear, the bike lunges forward and stalls (as if I wasn't pulling in the clutch at all). I have been in and out of this clutch so many times my head is spinning, and I simply don't know where to begin again. I ordered a new clutch cable just in case that is my problem. My configuration is as follows, in first to last disc: Judder seat Judder spring Thin clutch disc (larger I.D.) Steel drive REKLUSE Steel drive Clutch disc Steel drive Clutch disc Steel drive Clutch disc Steel drive Clutch disc All bolts are torqued to specs, oil is fresh. Any reasonable suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks Steve
  20. Looking to put a hydraulic one finger clutch on my bike but don't want to spend Clake money. Recommendations appreciated.

    Kx250f stalling off clutch

    Hey guys, I just picked up a 2014 kx250f with 3 hours on an entire rebuild for 1700 (not running). When I got home, I was able to get the bike running, however when I come off the clutch from first, the bike stalls no matter the RPM. Is this a clutch issue? Or perhaps electrical? When I tore into the top end I did notice my exhaust valves were off spec so could this be the culprit? This is my first FI bike, so any advice helps. Thanks in advance
  22. I'm new to thumper talk and hope I can get some help here. I had my clutch cable break at the handlebar end while riding. I ordered a replacement and installed it as the repair manual says. I can't get the clutch to disengage. So I disconnected the cable at the engine end. With the bike on a stand and with the engine off I put it in first gear and no matter where I move the clutch lever at the engine the clutch won't disengage. I checked it by turning the rear tire by hand. I've noticed that the spring on the shaft of the lever has popped off but the pictures in the book don't show enough detail to see exactly where it should be hooked. It almost seems like it needs to be hooked and go a full revolution before the other end is hooked, to get any tension on it, but wont go that far. But that's a small issue. What could've gone wrong in my clutch to cause this? It seems odd to happen just cause my cable broke. The bike was towed a mile or so out of the woods in neutral after it broke. Even at that time I found it strange that I couldn't get it into first and ease out the clutch with the lever but I'm pretty sure the spring was popped off the lever at the time. Any help is appreciated since I'm supposed to take the family riding this coming weekend. Thanks!
  23. Trying to figure out what I missed here. My starter spins freely after rebuilding the engine - new crank, bigbore. Everything is back together but when 'cranking' it over, the starter just spins free. I took off the starter cover held on by 3 phillips head bolts (fig 1 &3 ) and held on to the bushing on the starter gear train- directly located behind starter cover. This set of gears turned freely. So my starter teeth and sprocket teeth are not at fault. Next I turned the idler sprocket between this sprocket and the flywheel and this idler would turn freely clockwise but not rotate by hand counterclockwise CCW. Figure 3 - bottom center. I followed a thread on here of someone who had the same or similar symptoms. Following advice given to that poster, I removed the idler gear adjacent to flywheel and attempted to spin flywheel. This I can do in a clockwise direction but CCW provides much resistance. According to the arrow indicating the direction flywheel is suppose to turn (figure 2 bottom center) when running, I have something backwards. Anyone follow? What could I have done wrong here? Thank you

    2014 Kx 250f issues

    So i have bought a used bike with only 17 hours on it and is very clean. I went to ride it once with no issues and then washed the bike. After that day the air filter/Air box was making a weird sucking sound with every stroke of the engine. Second issue is when i idle in neutral there is a slight scraping or engaging sound in the bike but it goes away when i pull the clutch in. Also the bike turns off when i go into first gear Plz help ps none of these issues were present the day i got it
  25. I have a 2017 KTM 300 XC-W with a little more than 5 hours on it. Since day one I've noticed that the clutch drags a bit. When on the stand with the clutch pulled all the way in, the wheel will spin pretty fast, I also notice it when pulling in the clutch when going down hill. I'm wondering if I should back bleed the master cylinder, I'm also wondering if using the Zeta folding levers which were installed by the dealership is causing increased travel... maybe I should throw on the factory levers.
