    Hi all, I've recently built a Kawasaki ninja 250 shifter kart; The first time I rode it, it was a blast all for about 2 minutes then the clutch cable snapped... upon closer examination the clutch pickup point seems to be super high, it was much lower and actually worked properly prior to the...

    Hey there, I just recently bought a 2009 Ninja 250r. I noticed when purchasing it that the previous owner had used some sort of "instant gasket" silicone like glue substance (idk what the correct term is) in replace of the gasket of the clutch cover. And as a result theres a small oil leak. I...

    I took off the cluch lever and brake lever to paint them from silver to black on my Suzuki. I followed a youtube tutorial, since i had never done it before. And it was actually simpler than i thought. But now that i am done, the bike wont go into gear. I have not touched any setting things on...

    I've got a 1971 Suzuki TS185 I bought from a scrapyard a few years back. It took me a while but I've finally got it up and running. The major issue is that it desn't seem to be shifting up. With the clutch engaged, I press down on the gear shift and it clicks once. Then, I pull up on the gear...

    Got a Derbi Senda 50cc 2013 moped which has a whining noise when I drive. I think the whining noise comes from either the transmission or the clutch. The sound does not seem to affect how the bike works, it shifts well, pulls well, works just fine. The sound comes when I drive the bike, but also...

    Firstly, thanks for reading. I am putting back together a 1992 BMW R80 (monolever) and am in the process of putting the clutch arm assembly back on. I purchased a new boot and in putting it back on it doesn't seem to be fitting back together correctly. I have no understanding of how the clutch...

    After fixing my '82 Yamaha Maxim, I proceeded to attempt to ride it. I'll be honest, I'm very new and awful at shifting, so PLEASE don't give me crud. I managed to shift into first after a few failed attempts, which usually entailed me having no clue on how to use the clutch, and having a...

    Hello there, I recently picked up a 1971 Honda cb500 four. It was sitting for approx. a year and I'm finding a couple issues with it. It might be tuning or it might be that I'm not used to the larger bike. The problems I'm experiencing are: When I'm starting off from a stop in 1st gear my bike...

    Hi Guys, My 2007 Suzuki GS500 will not shift above fourth gear and has difficulty getting into neutral. This problem is new after winter storage. With the engine off and shifting the gear shift lever by hand the gears make moderately loud clunks with an attempt into fifth gear making a click...

    I ride a semi automatic motorcycle. What does it mean, if my bike doesn't go into neutral pushing the pedal down? When I'm in the top gear and press down the shifter, nothing happens. The 4th gears stays engaged. When I'm not in top gear and push down the shifter, it shift immediately. And if I...

    I bought a Yamaha Radian YX600 recently that came with a snapped clutch cable. I replaced the cable, but even with the cable adjusted way too tight the clutch refuses to disengage when I pull the lever. Looking for ideas on how to fix or at least diagnose the problem. I Ordered a replacement...

    I have a 1971 suzuki 90 enduro that seems to not be catching gears. I was riding down the road when it slowed down to a stop. When i crank it up(which it does easily) and try to go into first or any other gear it doesnt move but it also doesn't stall out when i release the clutch. I can hear the...

    Hey, everyone. I have another problem, unfortunately. Well, I have had it for the last month, but am only addressing it now because I am sick of it. For reasons unknown to me, there seems to be a high pitched noise coming from the clutch cable near the speedometer. This usually only happens when...

    Hey folks, new to the forum and relatively so to motorcycle repair, hoping for your sound advice. With the bike stopped and in neutral, after I engage the clutch and drop down to first, as I slowly disengage the clutch and roll on the throttle the bike seems to momentarily jam and lurch...

    So things have been great so far with my OLD but good looking 1984 Honda VT700C. In fact we just rolled past 50k miles. Honestly, I haven't had it for long, but today it just decided that first gear wasn't cool any more. When I got the bike earlier this year, I had the radiator fan repaired...
