curious, why do you say it needs a new clutch. it may just need a simple slave rebuild or the return port in the master is plugged
might just need fresh fluid and a good bleeding out
you don't hear much about the 1500 clutches failing. I sold my last 88 with well over 200K with the original clutch

The pvt seller said he had broken the linkage for the heel toe lever he drove it in 3rd gear through many traffic lights starting off in 3rd gear to get home. After fixing the linkage it now shifts in all gears and does not move...jusy revs up as if in neutral. I bought it right to plan on replacing the clutch if needed , just wondering how must it should cost before I take it to the shop. Thanks for the info.

I would start by changing the oil and look for a silver color or particles in the oil. the clutch is a wet clutch so it rides in the oil
if it's bad you should see it in the condition of the oil, change it and see if it try's to engage at all. I would even consider running some seafoam in it before changing it to help flush out any trash.
I don't really know what it would cost to have a shop do it.

Thank you....that wouId be great if that fixed it.....would that cause it to not move at all in all gears ?...I did get a estimate of around $350.00 if it needs a clutch.

it is possible, can't hurt to try.I just know it takes alot to kill the clutch in a 1500. 350 is not bad in my opinion to replace the clutch assy if it does need it.
good luck and let us know the outcome
is this your first wing

It is my 1st wing....my 1st trike....my 1st bike in 40 yrs, lol....I want to ride with biker friends, but at 69 yo I just didn't feel comfortable on 2 wheels again so after looking at a few trikes I ended up with this one for about 5,000 less than the rest of them, so I can put whatever it needs into it and still come out ok. It is a true trike with the rear differential not the center wheel, which I was advised is much better. It has 53,000 miles. I thought 350. for a new clutch sounded good too. I'll let you know how thinds turn out.
