  3. Clutch Bite Point

    Engine / Airbox / Exhaust / Fuel Delivery
    Morning all, Took the bird out for the first ride in 3-4 weeks and the clutch bite point has gone from the usual near end of travel point to just off the handlebar. Is this the symptom of the slave cylinder rod sticking often mentioned, or is this something else? Bike has done 63k miles (2000...

  5. Time for a new clutch

    Engine / Airbox / Exhaust / Fuel Delivery
    Looks like it's time for a new clutch, engagement is happening only at the last bit of lever travel. The bike has 88K Kms on it and some of them have probably been hard. So my question is while I'm in there what should I replace? My order list so far is: 1) Friction disks (5 & 2) 2) Springs...
  6. Clutch failure

    General CBR XX Discussion
    This is weird: Started up the XX and was going to ride away. As I put it in first gear, engine stopped with a jerk. Tried again, same result. Noticed that the clutch lever feel a bit limp. Not totally, but there's no "squeeze point" where I can feel it working on the clutch. Have checked...

  10. Clunk from engine/clutch?

    Engine / Airbox / Exhaust / Fuel Delivery
    Hi all, new bird owner here. Got my first bird just a week ago and it came along with a rare clunk from somewhere in the engine or clutch. It's not the constant knocking sound that is associated with cold clutch, but something more along the lines of louder clunk/thud. We had the bike idling...

  12. Clutch issue

    General CBR XX Discussion
    I'm new to the site, got a 97 bird. maybe I haven't searched in the right area but here's my problem: The friction zone in the clutch has made it all the way to the grip so it won't fully engage even when it's pulled as far as it will go. So far I've been able to shift but it is much more...

    Engine / Airbox / Exhaust / Fuel Delivery
    back story: Towards the end of last season, my clutch started acting funny around the friction zone... Full release it felt okay, and engaged it was tight (no slipping), but as i came across the friction zone, it would shudder and engage unevenly... somewhat unnerving...:mad: so i just assumed...

    Hi there, When I set off from a standstill, there is a noticeable clunk/click from the front sprocket area before the play is taken up and I move off.
