You really need to let someone look at it that knows what to look for, especially before you start buying .....It could be anything from as simple as a clutch fiber failure to broken input/output shafts.... Odds are it is in the clutch and it probably wiped the face off the some fibers but....You need to know what to do with it. All that fiber material is likely down in the oil pan and needs to be cleaned out as well as the oil pick up. Its not hard to do IF you know what you are doing....

You will likely need all new clutch fibers and steel plates...>Replace the whole set if it is smoked.....Clean the oil pan and oil pick up, replace oil pan gasket and change oil/filter.

Hit up Patrick and Motorcycles Unlimited and he can knock all of this out for your reasonably $$.

I highly recommend taking the bike to a professional if you arent familiar with how a clutch operates and its key components. It will require certain specific tools as well to remove toe basket and springs. I would venture to say with that kind if mileage, depending on how your ride (no women joke here) that your plates are cooked, just seems weird to go out all at once , but if you have been noticing hard shifts or slipping it has probably been going out for a while now.
Good luck, how many of those miles did you put on it?

Kudos on trying to fix it yourself. Look for a clutch kit for you bike. It should have everything inside the clutch basket. I would also get new springs

Here:



Read the product details and what it comes with.

But have you put the rear on a stand, started the bike and pop it in first gear to see if the rear tire moves? What have you done to date?

haven't read it all but:
use genuine Yamaha friction plates only,
remember to soak them in oil for 24 hours before fitting,
if the clutch went suddenly the steels are unlikely to be effected to the point of needing replacing.
A light rub with some emery paper on a flat surface will help.
If they're blue, replace.

DIY tip: Soak the fibers in their own ziploc. A few of them are so similar it's easy to get them mixed up. You dont want to have to figure which is which. The ones with the same part # can go in the same bag. Use OEM parts

It is an easy job. If you were closer and I had time, I would help. It is a 1 hour job. I agree that with your milage you should remove and clean the pickup and the pan. If your just suddenly failed you have chunks in there (if it is the clutch).

Whats the cost to replace a clutch if you supply the parts?

I remember the guys at GrandPrix Motors letting my buddy do it himself in their garage and ask questions if needed, so before you go tearing that thing apart in your driveway atleast explore your options. There might be an easier way.

It can easily be done in a garage or in the shade somewhere.

I might be able to head up that way on Friday but re-read post 39 first


I'm sorry, I was trying to be funny. Forget i said anything. I don't know about bikes anyway. I can prove it...

I would offer to help you, but I'm a little far away at the moment and just a tiny bit preoccupied

Have you opened the motor and looked at the clutch?
Drained the oil and looked for debris?
(I do know a little about bikes... I used to be service mgr at a Yammaha shop)
It can be frustrating but it really is not too bad. We can get ya on the road, just gotta deal with a couple hurdles, then back to the fun!
