Question Adjusting the grear change

Hey All

I have a quick question in regards to going into neutral gear.

It seems to me that when i hold down the clutch lever the bike tends to pull forward a bit. and if i am not in a rolling position the bike has a tendancy to not change into neutral. So it seems to me that the gear changer needs to be adjusted a bit so that it does not pull.

The bike pops into neutral if it off. and if i am moving .. as soon as the bike stops it will try to skip threw the neutral gear when i sickle threw them with my foot

Thanks for your help

It sounds more like your clutch lever may need to be adjusted not your gear lever. Have you bled the clutch slave cylinder recently?

It is unlikely that there is too much fluid in the reservoir. Bleed the clutch slave the same way you would bleed a brake caliper and see if it helps.

Smile What CAG said

It's not that there is too much fluid in the system. The fluid can and will go bad over time, so you need to replace it. If it, the level, is very low, then you migh have a damaged seal and you will have to replace that.
Have you tried adjusting the lever out a bit to see if that makes a difference, I mean the lever that you pull with your left hand and not the gear lever.

What do you mean by that ?
To bleed the system, we mean replace all the old fluid with new DOT4 fluid.

A quick and easy bleed would be to take the appropriate sized box-end wrench (8mm? 10mm?) and place it on the bleed nipple on the clutch slave cylinder. Put a rag over the wrench and bleed nipple. Pump the clutch lever until it its as solid feeling as it gets, then, while holding the lever to the bar, open the bleed screw with the wrench. When the bleed is complete...maybe one second...close the bleed screw and then release the clutch lever slowly. Repeat this action twice more.

This will bleed minimal fluid and release any minor amounts of trapped air at the slave.

After that you can check the clutch action.

Dons is right, however...you should renew the clutch fluid at least once a year, same as brake fluid, by doing a complete system bleed/refill.

Keep your words soft and sweet, for someday you shall eat them....
