Clutch juddering
« on: March 07, 2015, 08:54:01 PM »
Hello everyone,
I have had my Crosstourer for two months now and must say I love it, its fast enough and handles very well, but I find that getting it off the mark is causing me some concern due to this anoying juddering when releasing the clutch. I find I have to slip the clutch quite a lot to get a smooth launch and as I am doing so the bike judders, the screen vibrates quite a lot and it just doesnt seem right, once away its fine and gear changes are slick enough.
Anyone had this problem, surely its not normal??
I,ve been ignoring it but stalled the thing yesterday and it fell over and boy its one heavy mutha to pick up!!

Cheers Phil :003:

Doesn't sound right. I've found it's pretty much impossible to stall it under normal circumstances. My only stall was after a fierce emergency stop to avoid a SMIDSY, when I was concentrating entirely on braking.

And yes, it's a bugger to lift........

Sounds like the clutch cable needs adjusting, definitely not right.

Two months old, I'd go back to the dealer and ask him to sort it. !!!!

And then buy a DCT....

They don't have a clutch CABLE as they are Hydraulically operated clutches   :192:




Phil, I'd take it back to the dealer if I was you but I can take a pic of the troubleshooting page in the manual if you want?

Thanks Folks,
my first call Monday to the dealer, just wanted some feedback. Was hoping it might have improved after a few hundred miles but if anything its getting worse!!

+1 for the bleeding. A wet clutch will not stick..ever but em little bubbly things....it could be caused by a worn filler seal or just a bubble that has wormed it's way loose. HAVE FAITH
Tomorrow is promised to no one...
