gpx250 clutch problem (fixed)

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' at netrider.net.au started by Androo, Mar 3, 2006.

  1. my friend is having a bit of a problem...during a gear change, his clutch cable snapped (near the top). everything else seemed fine - he kept riding using clutchless shifts until he hit traffic lights.

    so the cable wasn't a problem to fix (about $25)

    but the clutch lever (the one on the engine) doesn't feel right. it can be moved by hand up and down (with some mechanical resistance). but it doesn't spring back.



    any tips/suggestions?

  2. He may want his mechanic to do the cable replacement, in this way the lever can be properly checked and adjusted. It may cost a little bit more but hey clutchless shifting may cost him even more. :)

  5. use search on this site to get the GPX 250 service and repair manual as i was posted only recently. (sorry would put the link in here but know sh*t about how to). You could download the manual and work out the problem from there? maybe?

  8. amm it was a while ago but something like ... removed and cleaned the clutch plates, make sure everything was replaced the correct way, make sure the lever hooks onto the rod behind the clutch cover properly. we also shortened the clutch cable so we could adjust it nicely

  10. I'll say.

    I paid the money to buy a hardcopy, and boy! I've never really been able to figure the rotten thing out.

  11. If you're talking about the service manual in pdf format, it is really not that hard to understand ................. if you can read it.
