Default Gear/nautral issues

Hi
My 2001 K1,carby is getting quite hard to find nautral when I stop and quite hard to get into gear....have played around with the clutch adjuster,and this eitherss seems to have to much and the clutch slips,or not enough.....ive heard that new oil can be of benefit..and also adjusting the chain?...but is the chain issue because its to tight or lose?

Thanks

Check its not the gear lever, disconnect from change shaft (mark spline position) and check everything is smooth and free (lever pivot, 2 rose joints)

3-5mm play on clutch lever, use adjuster to set.

Chain needs to be right, too tight is worse.

When above is correct, does bike try to creep at all when in first and clutch fully pulled in?

If not, how far do you have to release the lever for it to start creeping?

Search for clutch adjustment on here, that's your problem here.

Not just at the cable, but adjust and cleaning of the accutator mechanism behind the sprocket cover.

Cleaning the pushrod too.

Yes, and spreads thousands of ball bearings when you take it apart!

I can't remember seeing any pictures or diagrams.

I'll see if I can find my workshop manual and post up how to service it

The actuator is a plastic contraption that you can get apart but even if you can find all of the ball bearings the plastic is usually worn out. A new one is normally the only long term solution.

Right here's the adjustment procedure for the mechanism after removing the sprocket cover.

As Duncan says better to buy a new one rather than clean insides of the old one.

However, before you buy a new one, do this. Take the sprocket cover off, give the whole area behind a really good clean. Remove the mechanism, clean the outside, remove the push rod and give that a good clean too.

Put it all back together and adjust as per the manual says, if it doesn't help, then buy a new mechanism, thats after checking chain tension & making sure your oil level isn't too high
