    I have a bike thats been sitting for a couple of months in my garage. Today I had the chance to take out the motor and transfer the motor to another bike. Installment ran smooth except now the bike's clutch wont engage. Could it be because it has no lubrication whatsoever due to the fact the the tank has been dry for a couple of months or is there anything wrong with the clutch. Help is really needed thanks.

    Just use your initiative and pull the clutch apart and inspect the components.
    Use the "search" function on how the clutch works, if reassembly is a problem.

    when you moved the motor, did you take the drive sprocket cover off to get the chain off, did you lose the ball behind the bucking bar at that time?

    engage or disengage?

    they usually jam on tight after a few months... new ones especially. usually just need the first start to free up, whilst i had to do laps on one thats been sitting a fair while. locked solid.

    not engaging, id say, yeah...bucking bar or ball or misadjustment...

    Thanks for all the advice guys. I got the bike to run and the clutch is not free. Now that its running new problem arose. I made a new thread since its not dealing about the clutch any longer.
