  1. I'm sorry if this is something I could of looked up just didn't know exactly what to look up. I am new to the dirt bike world and am having a problem with my 07 230. I recently bought the bike and installed a power up carb kit on it. Yesterday I was herding cows and somewhat noticed the bike was acting like i was never in the right gear. I put the bike up to mess with it later. That afternoon I pulled the bike out for a little ride maybe 15 min and had a straight away coming back to my vehicle and decided to stretch it out. I guess it was rev limiting and by the time I got back to my truck it felt like the transmission wasn't pulling at all. Tried to put it back on my truck and it didn't have enough power to drive up the ram in first on the bed of my truck. I am guessing it's the clutch/clutch plates because I can move through the gears easily just didn't have power. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  2. Hi everyone! I've been reading posts for several years and normally I can find the answer to the current issue or modification I'm digging into with the wealth of knowledge here. That is until now. Here's my issue. At the end of last riding season my chain broke going up a hill. The chain then got wedged in the front sprocket (my fault for running a bigger sprocket to get a more usable 1st I'm sure). I let the bike sit over the winter and recently got the itch to get back on the trail so I put on a new chain, rear sprocket and changed the oil. Got ready for a quick little test ride around the block and when I let the clutch out.................nothing, bike won't move. Starts and runs normal, no noises, clanks, etc. I can feel it go into gear, but when you release the clutch there's no movement. I can get it to move a little on it's own if I'm off the bike and on a flat surface. Here's what I've done so far: - verified the clutch cable is working (ie, moving the leaver on the top of the engine) - adjusted the cable just about as far as it would go. - pulled the disks out and they look fine with plenty of life left From here I'm not sure what to check next. Any suggestions? Thanks!!
  3. So, I am about to embark on a major tear down of my 2006 CR125 and have one more "problem" that I need to resolve during this rebuild. My clutch is a pretty firm pull and it fatigues my forearm pretty quickly. I'm not sure if that's simply how it is on these bikes, having pulled the clutch lever on other bikes such as the yz125 and rm85, my clutch is very hard to pull in comparison. I just replaced the cable with one that the guy I purchased the bike from gave me, so maybe not stock? Would that make a difference? Also, could it be my springs? I've never had problems with the clutch such as lurching and the clutch is smooth, just hard to pull. Thanks, Will
  4. Hey Everyone, I am having an issue with a hard to pull clutch on a YZ125. I have inspected the lever, all good. I have tried to lube the cable, check. Next, I pulled the clutch cover off and uninstalled the clutch basket, inspected the springs, etc. I torqued the springs/bolts back down to the 7.25 ft/lbs, reassembled and still pretty much the same pull force is needed. Should I just purchase a new clutch cable and hope that fixes it? It is much harder to pull than the last YZ125 we just sold. It works just fine, but just harder to pull. Thanks in Advance.
  5. Looking for some help. I bought this bike blown up, rebuilt and bought new parts and put it all together but used the clutch that came with it. The bike runs really good. I went for the first ride and few days ago after some heat cycles and was just putting around my yard. When I first set off the clutch was working as it should, smooth feel at the lever, no lurching as I put it in gear or anything out of the ordinary. When I stopped and went to set off again tho, the bike tried to jump as I put it in gear and then the grab at the lever was gone. The clutch won't disengage. Has anyone else had a similar issue? I have been reading and many people said this was due to the plates sticking or grooves worn into the basket. When putting mine together I used a diagram and am quite sure it is together as it should be and the basket is not grooved. Could this be due to the oil? I was using 10w40 Castrol, should I try some atf type f? It's like there is suddenly more space between the pressure plate and the plates, I don't get it
  6. Hey guys, been reading the forum for some time, as i started riding a wr450f 2008 a year ago. My clutch is veryy graby so i took it apart and filed the basket and boss grooves and did the swiss cheese mod to the boss. Now the thing is that i want to assemble it back and I cant get the basket to enter enough to lock basket and boss with the nut. Is there a trick to put the basket right?
  7. Hi all! This is my first post on the forum so sorry if I'm in the wrong thread. I pulled a 2002 cr80 off the beach that I found abandon there and I recently got it running, but the clutch needs to be replaced/fixed. I can get all of the screws for the clutch cover off but one is behind the foot peg so I can't get a ratchet or wrench back there. Any ideas?
  8. I am in the process of replacing the clutch plates and springs on my 2014 YZ450. I noticed that there are quite a few visible grooves /notches on the hub and basket. What do you guys think, are they bad enough that I should replace both parts? I dont want to ruin new plates but also dont really want to drop alot of money on hub and basket, if i dont need it. Thanks!
  9. I'd like to say that I really appreciate all the help from this forum. It is amazing. I tried searching for a previous post on this problem and cure but didn't find a match. Found something close which leads me to think that the fix will be more costly. So I'm asking to see if there's a chance at making this easier and less costly. My son's yz 85 recently had a problem with the clutch not disengaging. Checked the cable and it moved freely but noticed the push lever wasn't always returning back with the spring action. The spring looked intact. Thought there might be something in the clutch keeping it from moving back. Not sure what would do that but took it apart anyway. Everything inside looks good. The plates, fibers, basket, hub both push rods, ball. Some wear on the fibers but good. With every thing out the push lever still wouldn't move freely. So on the left side I took the chain cover off and see that the chain must have gotten so loose that it started to hit the crankcase where the push lever is. I guess it's pushed the case in enough that it's binding the lever. Whose case is I have to change the crankcase. Has anyone ever experienced this and is there an easier/ less expensive fix? I haven't tried to remove the push lever yet. From other posts it sounds like it should come out fairly easy. Thanks for all the help!
  10. So I took my txc to the sand dunes for the first time and I made sure that my bike was ready, by that I mean antifreeze was checked, air filter cleaned and so on. But when I was riding there my bike was overheating in the first 20 minutes. The fan was working it's butt off and I could hear a swishing noise when I put my ear up to the radiator which I don't know if that is normal. Also my clutch wouldn't engage so I couldn't shift when I was riding but as soon as I stopped the bike died and the clutch would engage again. And my friends bike was doing just fine, his fan didn't even turn on and I want to know if anyone else with Husqvarna is having the same problems or even anyone with the same model?
  11. I just installed a new Radius Rekluse clutch on my 2016 Beta 350RR. I'm having trouble adjusting the Free Play Gain so that I can use engine braking. Either I get too much free play or or not enough. I recently installed the same clutch on my KTM 530 and I can get the engine braking so I know it can be done. Any tips? should I use the heavier springs in the Rekluse disc pack?
  12. Hi, I have a CR250 and went to get it out for the season to find when I pull the clutch lever in, the gears are still engaged. I tried adjusting the cable with no luck, so I trained the bottom end oil out and removed the clutch cover and plates to inspect it. There are some grooves in the clutch basket, but they don't look too bad (see attached). Any ideas on how to trouble shoot this issue ? Thanks
  13. Hi, so basically I own a 2001 KTM 250exc and when I pull in the clutch, kick it in first, and continue to leave the clutch in the bike wants to move forward, if I put my feet up it moves very slowly as if the clutch is not all the way in. I bled the system and put in new oil (maguras blood) but that did not work.
  14. Hey all, I'm new to this forum. I bought a 2001 CR250 a couple weeks ago, and it worked great. I bought a new clutch lever off of ebay and installed it. The lever must have been a wrong one, because I no longer had any free play. The lever was clamped tight against the perch, and even after I loosened it all the way (from both adjustment points) it would not loosen up. I took it off and installed the stock lever again, but there is now almost no free play again. The hand adjusted one is almost as far as it goes, and the other one is adjusted as far as it goes. I have enough free play, but I can't loosen it out any more. Also, since putting the stock lever back on, when I try to start the bike in first gear (with the clutch lever pulled all the way in) the bike pulls forwards fairly hard. Why does it do this?? I don't get why it worked perfectly before, but now it's all wack. Any help is appreciated.
  15. I had a moment of jackass and broke a dog off my clutch basket on my RT180 trying to break the crank nut. To my utter disappointment there are none of these available online that doesnt come without the whole engine. So what can I do? I guess I'll stitch it back together let the chips fall. Anyone ever do this? or would you?
  16. About 6 months ago my bike started acting up. I found it hard to get the bike in neutral while it was running. No matter how I adjusted the clutch. Sometimes it would get better but only for a day or two. The clutch got harder to pull as well. I then read on here to replace the clutch cable before trying to fix anything else and that solved my problem for about 4 weeks. Nice and light clutch pull, gearing wasn't clunky and I could get to neutral with no hassle. The past week the clutch pull stiffened up so much that I think I pulled a tendon in my finger from riding it. Neutral issue is back and worse. I can adjust the cable so that I can get the bike in neutral at least but my hand is taking a beating. So apart from a new cable. What would be the next step in trying to fix this problem? It's making riding really miserable.
  17. Hello all, I am attempting to reverse bleed my KTM's clutch per the advice of a few forum posts (syringe filled with fluid going straight into slave cylinder bleeder), and due to normal bleeding not having any noticeable effect on my clutch feel. I have run in to a bit of a problem however, when trying to force new fluid through the slave cylinder bleeder it is completely stopped. I had that maybe my lever was still partially engaging the clutch so, I adjusted the lever outwards and tried again; still did not allow fluid through. I removed the lever; still did not allow fluid through. Removed the master cylinder's plunger; still would not allow fluid through. After these did not work, I removed the slave from my bike repeated the above steps, and it still was locked up. At this point I'm assuming it is a slave cylinder issue so I decided to do things the old fashioned way and just use anger fueled force. With the bleeder CLOSED and the master cylinder still completely taken apart, I've tried pushing on the slave cylinder itself and it barely moves. However, I do notice some air bubbles appearing in the reservoir when doing so (virtually no fluid flow though). When the bleeder is OPEN and I try pushing on the slave cylinder, fluid comes flying out of the bleeder (as expected I suppose). Also, when I try staring at my bike and waiting for it to fix itself, nothing happens. Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance guys/girls.
  18. I purchased a 2018 TX 300 in November and I been hearing about the magura slave cylinder failure on FE/FC/FX 450/501 but I was wondering if the 2 stroke models were having the same problems
  19. 49cc lifan clone clutch is stuck and electric start isn’t able to start engine. Drains oil and removed cover. Now how to pull clutch. Anyone have a rebuild video? Just for the record the screw adjustment on the cover was lose when I got it. When I pulled the part that was attached with the three screws. The gasket on the back of that part seemed torn. Is this needed to build some pressure? This bike is a single gear automatic with no clutch levers.
  20. i have a 2004 yz450f and i am having issues with my clutch, i have to float the gears to ride it because the clutch wont work at all, i dont know whats wrong with it, i tore apart the clutch basket and all the friction plates look fine
  21. When my bike is not running, I noticed if I put my bike in gear and squeeze the clutch all the way in and roll the bike, the clutch is not fully disengaging and it is turning the engine over. Last week I took it out for a ride and noticed I also cannot start it in gear without giving it a good amount of throttle and if I stop in gear with the clutch squeezed all the way in, the bike will stall. I have no clutch slippage issues or any other problems I can recognize other than the clutch not fully disengaging. I figured it was likely a stretched cable and they're cheap so I put a new motion pro cable in this morning and adjusted it properly and I'm still having the same issue, I have not rode the bike with the new cable but I put it in 1st gear and tried to roll it with the clutch squeezed all the way and it was still turning the engine. What else could be my problem???
  22. Do the Hinson Clutch covers scratch up and wear out easy? Looking to buy one just don't want it to scratch all to hell after the first ride since it is pretty pricy. Thanks.
  23. Whats up everybody, Just want to hear everyones preference on clutches. My clutch is gone, and in looking to replace am trying to figure out OEM vs Aftermarket. I see a lot of good things about Barnett but would love to hear about what TT riders think. I am a woods/trail rider and will probably never do MX, which I am not sure would affect which clutch would be best for me. Thanks homies
  24. Hello all. straight into it. I bought a 02 yz 250 a few months ago, got it home and realized it wouldn't stay in first gear. i stripped it down and replaced the 3 shift forks. Got it all back together but it still popped into neutral. The clutch fibers and plates were all stuck together so i replaced those and its still doing it. Ive got a arc perch and lever coming just because the one on there is a cheap piece of greatness from china. Any ideas on what could be causing this issue. Im at a loss. attached are pictures of the progress. And i added a couple pics of it together just because who doesnt like looking at a beautiful dirt bike.
