Hi guys
Could some more experienced members offer an opinion on this please?

I have the K100RS 1990, and a week or two ago, the clutch failed to engage again when released after a gearshift, with the lever sort of stuck halfway (a lot of play). I was on my way to work in rush-hour traffic, and revved the engine a couple of times, which caused the clutch to engage again. After three or four jerky gearshifts, the clutch has been operational again, but not as "perfect" as it was before the incident.

I am also starting to experience an almost resonant vibration through the bike, which disappears when the clutch is disengaged (lever pulled in). This vibration seems to be getting worse with time.

The short answer is most probably: pull the transmission and probably replace the clutch, as I suspect something has gone wrong in my bikes bowels?

Also, I found a post with a link to an article on replacing the clutch an a K100, but cannot seem to find the PDF which the post says "is attached at the end"? Any help here please OK - came right here, have the instructions.

Think I was overly concerned on this issue - took the bike around to someone who has infinitely more knowledge on it than me, his opinion is that the clutch is OK, says it is one of the quieter clutches he's come across. It's just that the bike has not been ridden much before I acquired it.
Set the play up a bit, and off we go.

When were the clutch splines lubed?
I believe that it would be a good thing to pull the gear box and have a look. ay it.
The clutch starting to jam is a sure sign that lubrication is needed.
See this post
