I'm hoping someone out there can help me because I am completely stumped on a problem with a 1974 Honda cb125s. When I pull in on the clutch lever, the lever starts vibrating and you can hear a steady rattle that gets louder the more I pull in on the lever. When the lever is all the way and the clutch should be disengaged, the bike starts to go under s slow load and if left at idle, will stall. So far I pulled the clutch out. Measured the plates, which were fine. Then replaced the clutch springs and bearing, but it is still a mess. Any ideas wold be super appreciated!

If Im understanding this correctly : possibly a clutch cable out of adjustment? I can do that on my 2013. If I turn my adjuster far enough the wrong way i can get it to stall in gear with lever pulled in. Are you saying the bike is moving then stalls with the lever pulled in ?The rattling/vibrating could be another issue? Post a vid if u can

Let me try to clarify. When I pull in on the clutch lever, there is a rat-tat-tat coming from the crank case and matching vibration on the clutch lever. When I have it all the way in and shift into 1st, the rear wheel will start to turn (even with the lever still pulled). Then it just slowly stalls.

Is the wheel turning with the bike on the stand, or is this on the ground and it just tries to drag the bike forward? On the stand is normal, but on the ground, the clutch is not fully disengaged, like pulling the lever all the way in isn't pushing the throwout far enough. There should be less than about 1/2" movement at the end of the lever before you feel it start pressing on the clutch. Perhaps the bearing on the clutch lifter is failing?
