    Hay all, my bikes been losing power within a couple of mins riding, then when i rode home from work today i turned it off. When i went to start it ten mins later, when i let the clutch out, there was nothing, no compression and the pedalling was as easy as when the clutch is applied. Any ideas???

    jimi076, was the engine racing when you "lost power", or was it lugging, or otherwise acting up? Sounds like a drivetrain failure from your post, but I am just trying to get the whole picture. I suppose a catastrophic engine problem, like a lost spark plug, could have the same result, but not if you started it successfully. As I said, just trying to see the whole thing.

    clutch or clutch cable sticking, or maybe fuel leaking into clutch cover

    either way, open the cover and see if it is moving and dry

    While pedaling the bike , let the clutch out as if to start, listen to see if the engine is turning over, if it is and no compression then you have a catastrophic engine failure.
