Clutch problem please help!!!!!

So I have a 2003 Hayabusa...my problem is when I'm in first and I am releasing the clutch lever it is not immediately engaging..I have to almost let it all the way out before it engages...A couple of weeks ago I laid it down on the left side and had to replace the strator cover could this have something to do with it?

Sounds like your clutch is either out of adjustment or it's time for a new one.

Well I just learned something. I thought the gen 1's were adjustable but it turns out you can only adjust the lever position.

It must be time for a new clutch........It's not as hard as you think. Good DIY project.

Ride it in 4th or 5th gear at about 4000 rpms and hammer it.
If the rpms rise without matching acceleration than it's slipping.
You say you went down on the left side, did you inspect the clutch slave cylinder and it's mounting point for damage?

Dont worry. It's really an easy job. If you were closer I would offer to help. It's under 200 to replace all the parts.

it's a busa, suprised it wasn't sooner....clutches are pretty easy though. Usually just have to replace the plates (steels and fibers), sometimes the springs, and just pay attention how they came off (steel first, fiber second, steel 3rd, etc. etc.) It sounds like you just need new clutch plates....simple job. Send it to Patrick if you aren't comfortable doing it yourself.
