So theres almost no friction zone and i've already replaced the plates and springs with a Barnett clutch. I've got the free play adjusted at the lever correctly but it only starts grabbing like 1/2 inch before the clutch is all the way out. is there another adjustment somewhere else?

you put the clutch plates in the correct way and order?
yep. i put it together the way its supposed to go. its been like that ever since i bought it too. i figured the new clutch would make a difference but its exactly the same. i havent been able to talk to anyone else with one to see if thats just normal. I've found some other people online that had the same problem but nobody seems to have found a solution or they at least didnt update anything if they did find a fix. is there any clutch adjustment on the actual motor?

Old thread but I have the same issue with mine. I'm wondering if it'll get better when the cable stretches. I just put on a new cable and I really had to pull on the cable to get it into the lever.

Well I know it's not "normal", but the TTR I am building was the same way when I got it. I was hoping the Barnett would fix it, but it sounds like it won't. If you find a fix, please lemme know what it is, and I'll do the same if I figure something out when I get this thing built.

Anyone one get this figured out? I'm gonna be bummed when I rebuild my motor and the clutch stays the same... Being big, I'm hard on clutches, and I actually use it for more than just starting and stopping like a lot of riders do. So I need this thing to have more than an on/off friction zone like it does now. Also plannin on runnin a Rekluse clutch in mine, so I'm sure that'll fix the problem, but I'd like for it to be right for the short while that it's running before I find a Rekluse.

try screwing the pushrod shaft on the pressure plate in (make the amount of threads showing at the retaining bolt larger)

Inside or outside the case? It's pretty much made the bike unrideable. I haven't messed with it for a while.


If anyone finds anything else that might fix it Just reply here. I know it's old but I'm still subscribed to it...

inside the case the plate with the springs on it. It has a rod bolted to it that the clutch lever inside the engine engages.

number 10 is the pressure plate, #14 is the rod



loosen the retension screw (#16). then holding the pressure plate with the side that touches the clutch disk toward you (like in diagram), screw the rod clockwise a turn or two. then tighten the retaining screw (#16) back down. That will adjust where the plates engange on the lever...don't know if it will increase the friction zone though....you can try a lighter spring tension for that.
