    bastard clutch thing

    Post by Clarky_two on Mon Oct 03, 2016 7:43 pm

    Ive got a few hours under my belt now on the new 350, but having a few issues with this clutch thing.....

    bike is in first gear with the engine off - I pull the clutch in and she wont move - is this normal?

    bike is running in neutral and i kick it into first - bike stalls every time. when its cold - making it impossible to get going when she is cold, but have been pushing it and dropping it into 2nd to get going

    bike doesnt like to start in gear.

    would you expect a small oil leak on a 2nd hand bike with 60 hrs on it bike from a dealership ? oil being sprayed up onto the head, not much but its there...

    Up your idle, I still think its idling too low hence the struggle to start.

    it was set up by ET James on the computer - throttle sensor all checked and reset. He said there was nothing wrong with it. I was there when he did it..... will be ringing them tomorow

    ive had a few trials bikes do the same thing, always when cold, could be worth checking the oil lever and the right oil is in there

    My bmw is like this, also real hard to find neutral ..- but after an oil change its much better 

    maybe because its so new it needs a few oil changes 
    but then what would I know - I threaded a coke bottle today  Embarassed

    Have you changed the inline fuel filter? That helped mine with starting.

    The clutch issue may be wear on the basket there may be grooves on the clutch basket holding the plates together

    My 450 s a
     Bit like that when cold some times It stalls on the 1st attempt to put it in to gear I just pump the clutch lever a couple of time and it's fine after that I should really take the clutch out on have a look at the bevel spring in it but I'm to lazy to have a look

    Yeah my old 450 was the same, pump the clutch a few times before starting normally helped it. Plates stuck together
