So I did the search, found somethings that might help, but I still want a little more input. So about a month ago I was working on my bike, getting it ready to roll, started it up, and rode it around the street. Everything went great, put back in storage, and left it at that. Turns out I never did end up riding. Three weeks later I return, trying to start my bike, takes forever, and runs like crap. Figure its bad gas, I also figure I'll deal with it later. Finally today, had the afternoon off, decided to go deal with. A buddy and I drained the gas, got new gas in it (with stabil this time might add), and of course, starts up second kick. Gotta love ol' Blue reliability. However, now the clutch will not disengage. (Figured this out actually right before we got it running again, because it would not bump start). Can only start in neutral, and when shifted into first, with clutch pulled in, the bike just stalls out. Here was my thoughts: my bike is wayyy overdue for an oil change, I know, ridicule me, whatever, I was planning on getting it done this weekend. So is it possible the oil finally gunked up enough to prevent the clutch from disengaging? I know its not the cable, the free play was fine on that. My thought was just change the oil, and let it idle for a couple of minutes, maybe some heat on the plates would free up the action. The local yamaha dealer suggested it might be grooves in my basket, and that's what my search results have suggested as well. However, I find it hard to believe that my clutch would simply STOP all of a sudden, when the last time I rode it I noticed nothing wrong with the clutch operation at all. My final item of business is to simply crack the case and see whats going on inside, but I ran out of time tonight. What do you guys think? Probably one of those two things? Or is there something else I might be missing? Is there another way of breaking loose the clutch other than just letting the oil warm up for awhile? Like some kind of jerking action? Sorry if I sound like a tard. I've been riding snowcats and quads my whole life, but this dirtbike thing is relatively new to me. Thanks for the time to read.
