clutch problem - September 7, 2007, 12:36 AM

Ok so put the clutch back into my bike, push rod down the center, push thingy, bearing, pressure plate, everything is TQ'd to spec.

put the left side where the cable goes on....clutch won't engage (ie if its in gear and i pull in the lever it stays in gear)

any ideas?!

i've already tried to adjust the cable and does no good.
tomorrow going to drain the oil and see if anything internal is outta wack for some reason :/

This is annoying. Especially when you're working on a bike at 1AM!

Anyone?

I spent $75 at Coleman's to learn how to turn that little adjustment screw that hides under the case where the cable connects to the pin pulling parts (opposite the case that holds the clutch plates) although in my case the clutch was ALWAYS engaged giving me almost no power (I had a little power).

Have you turned this adjustment screw properly?

I think you mean disengage.

Regardless, it could be a bunch of things. Best thing to do is start over and make sure you follow the manual precisely, oil the plates, install them in the right order, align markings (pressure plate and clutch boss may have punch marks), torque clutch spring bolts, make sure teeth on pull rod are aligned with gear on pull lever shaft, etc. etc. Procedure may vary by model, and I'm not sure what kind of bike you have.

yes i have, i tinkered with that for ~20 min Kat....@ no given point on either the upper lever adjustment, or lower case adjustment did it work

I'll note that RDDY
everything was TQ'd to spec, plates and everything have oil.

How finicky is the clutch system? I mean, everything was done according to the repair manual, it's not like we just threw it in and hoped for the best.

Then maybe you have a parts issue. What was wrong with the clutch that it needed to be removed in the first place?

And you screwed with the screw that adjusts the gear shift shaft BEFORE you fiddled with the cable adjustments? Just checking. I diddled the screw like the manual said, and it was still out of whack...

The screw that adjusts the shaft?
that shaft doesn't even have anything to do with the clutch...and its a fixed piece...

(i did find 1 small flaw on the install, we'll see later today
that bitch is coming all the way out and going to start again )

I think that's the screw I'm talking about. It makes the rod longer and shorter, thereby adjusting the whole entire fit of the clutch! Get that screw wrong and you're well... screwed.
