    Clutch help please

    Yes most bikes share the engine and gearbox oil , but I have a automatic truck and it has separate engine and gearbox oil , I have just changed all the oils on my truck so I have truck head on and not bike head , sorry if I confused you . I don't no why a dirty pick up filter would affect the gear selection , but it DID help me when I cleaned it . Sticking clutch plates due to bad oil (contamination) due to lack of servicing by previous owners was my problem . I had clean ENGINE oil but my clutch plates still stuck together on first start up/gear selection . Gear selection was fine afterwards . I dumped the clean ENGINE oil , cleaned the pick up filter and put fresh ENGINE oil in as well as another oil filter . Selecting first gear , first start up improved , Sorry , only saying what was wrong with my bike . I will now go and sit in the corner and be quiet . Good luck with getting it sorted .

    Clutch help please

    What condition is the gearbox oil ? How clean is the sump pick-up ? My cable clutch 750 would jump and clunk when first put into gear so I changed the gear box oil and cleaned the sump pick-up and it improved a bit . I also pumped the clutch lever before selecting first gear to help separate the sticking clutch plates.
