Sticking clutch plates?
Posted January 22, 2003 - 07:50 AM
The bike runs great and shifts fine however, when running, I absolutely cannot get the bike into neutral. Also, if the bike is not running and in gear, even if I pull in the clutch lever, the back tire drags.
So, if I drop the oil and run her hard this weekend, will the clutch plates "free up" or should I be installing a new clutch?

If it where me
I would pull the plates out, let the fiber sit in a pool of fresh oil for an hour or so. then put it all back..
It could be just simply to dry for the plates to free up automatically..

By the way, I'm still amazed by response to posts. TT is damn near a real time help line! Thanks

I think that Ego is onto something. Shocking I know.
Ive taken friends clutches apart and seen dry plates. Just lay the bike over on its side and take the cover off. that way you dont loose any oil. Soak the plates for a while and reassemble. Im bettin that that is the problem.
