Clutch Engagement

Postby cobra04 » Sat Aug 27, 2011 11:02 pm



Recently bought 85 Interstate, Replace front and rear pads, rear brake rotor, overhauled the calipers, replace timing belt, serviced the final drive, lub the shaft splines replace the starter and solenoid and a whole bunch more. So I took it for my first ride today couple hundred miles and noticed when you first let out the clutch it seems fine, but right after you get a bit of a bang like the clutch wasn't fully released, just seems to happen starting out in first gear from a dead stop after having the clutch lever depressed. Was wondering if anyone else has experiance this.

Did the bike sit for a while? It sounds like the clutch slave cylinder is hanging up. Taking it off and putting it back on is a pain in the butt but it is not hard to rebuild.
You might want to rebuild the clutch master cylinder at the same time as they somtimes will start leaking if you don't.
