    Clutch slowly begins to drag

    Hello! My clutch slowly becomes tighter and tighter (meaning it is harder to disengage the clutch). Now I have to pull the lever all the way in because the engine is still engaged when I lock the clutch in. I know this is not caused by the cable since the clutch lever stays in the right range...

    Bearing ball stuck

    Hello, I have a problem, my bearing ball got stuck and I can't get it out. What is more the ball is halfway worn out. I have seen old post of this problem but it wasn't very helpful. I thought of wd40 but I am afraid that it will dissolve grease further in the clutch and I won't be able to...

    Clutch problem.

    i have a problem with my clutch slipping when trying to start my bike. It's a relatively new engine and probably shouldn't be doing what it's doing. The clutch does not slip when the bike is running. However when I let go of the clutch lever it will squeak and not grab and turn over the engine...
