Clutch issue. - July 15, 2016, 04:51 PM

Please save the Buell jokes.I just want to ride.

2004 Buell XB12R

Riding to work this morning and shifting started going south in the span of 30 minutes. Had trouble shifting into neutral. Eventually, when I came to a stop, I would have the clutch pulled all the way in and I would have to use the brake from pulling forward and giving it throttle to keep from stalling. At this point the clutch lever had a ton of slack before it would catch. I stopped at a gas station and used the adjuster to take up the slack. Everything was fine for about two blocks and all the slack came back. I parked it and had it towed. There was no fraying of the cable at the lever and the adjuster was very tight. What could be the problem?

Well you see, Norm, itís like thisÖA herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.-Cliff Claven

What's happening at the other end of the cable? Do you have a fine adjuster at the lever and a gross adjuster at the clutch?

Turned out to be the throwout bearing.

That doesn't sound so bad although I've never had to replace one...
