TY 175

Recommended Posts

Hello can any 1 Help I have a Ty 175 that ive just restored the Engine as had new piston the rest was ok ive started it up runs fine but when I put it into gear it jumped forward and stalled so am assuming its the clutch. it was fine  before  but its been stood for a long time could it be the clutch plates stuck together may need a clean? the only thing I did was to take the clutch Arm out to clean and put it back the grub screw that screws into the clutch Arm could this have anything to do with the clutch nor working? any help would be much appreciated.

Might just be stuck up with non use and thick oil, put it in top gear by rocking back and forwards and pulling the lever up through the gears then try rocking it back and forth with the clutch pulled in ( engine off btw)

Yamaha sticky clutch syndrome - this is normal.

 

With the engine running and a bit of space, roll the bike forwards and pop it in second at the same time.  Ride it around for a minute or two with the clutch lever pulled in all the time, play with the throttle and it'll free up without any drama.

EDIT: forgot to mention, mine would stick if I left it for as little as week.  I switched to Dexron 3 auto fluid, and after a month drained and re-filled it, and it doesn't get sticky any more.

That screw has an offset pin on the end so you can adjust the angle of the clutch arm to offset for wear in the plates and mechanism. The offset pin lifts or lowers the clutch camshaft and the cam face is slanted to provide the adjustment
