I have a track day tomorrow, and I had notice after greasing my chain tonight that when I pull my clutch when the bike is in first gear, the bike doesn't fall in Neutral... What the ****? :facepalm:

I have bypass my kickstand switch last week, it might have a relation with this problem?


I have to work this thing out before tomorrow morning!

You probably need to take in some of the slack in the clutch cable. Start by screwing the lever adjuster on the handlebar OUT a few threads and see if that helps. there should be ~1" of loose travel at the tip of the lever if it is stock. figure about 3/4" to 1/2" if using shorties. Too much play will not allow the clutch plates to fully dissengage.

fixed...

I think I'm to stress out for tomorrow :dizzy:... clutch seems ok, not stopping right after I pull the cultch but a little rear brake makes the job!

But I'll sure do the clutch adjustment to get rid of the problem!

THANKS! :)

One thing to bear in mind.. When there is no static load on the tire (aka friction from the road), the viscosity of the oil between the clutch plates will transfer the motion (think of a torque converter). In otherwords, if you are on the ground, and you are sitting on the bike with the gearbox in first, clutch in, and either the engine is bogging or the bike eagerly wants to roll forward, then you are fine. There should be a distinct notion of where the friction zone is, at which point the engine will start bogging and you will fill the bike attempt to roll forward. If this isn't there, than you know for sure.

This is the same reason the bike kind of lurches a little when you turn it over with it in gear with the clutch pulled in.
