Default Clutch stuck? Been sitting a while

     

MY 85 Cr500 was sitting for about a year befor I got it.

I am slowly goin over it When its running I'll pull the clutchlever in and pop it into gear and it lunges forward and dies. Like im not pulling the clutch in.

I have taken off the stator cover to see if the clutch lever is moving down there and it is.

So The clutch disc's are stuck together? is this right? And if so
what can i do to fix it.
Do I need to pull the other side off and take the clutch out and (unstuck) the plates? The that houses the water pump..

Could be disks sticking together, could be not fully releasing due to a notched basket. Have you popped open the clutch side to have a look? I think the trick for sticking plates is to let them dry and give them a quick scrub with some Scotch Brite or steel wool. A notched basket or hub might be able to filed enough to work, but replacement is probably the best fix.

I have not opened the case yet
I'm still polishing all the aluminum right now, because thats free for me to do.
Others sugested I ride it around pulling the clutch in to see if will unstick But I need to replace the intake boot before I ride it around, it looks like it was cracked and they put orange RTV on it.








I ordered a new one today. So it's back to more polishing for now.

Yes you will have to pull the side cover and the water pump to get to the clutch.

I've never understood those of you who polish aluminum to a mirror finish, I don't have the patience and can never find the time... plus the first time it got scuffed up I'd be livid

Today I got my carb boot in the mail.
Forgot to order a gasket so I got a roll and made a bunch myself .

I would plan to replace that side cover with a newer one as your water pump is likely rotten. Guess you'll find out when you open it up to look at the clutch.
