View Full Version : wont move freely in gear

05-24-2013, 11:16 AM
if I pull the clutch in it doesn't roll freely in 1st second and so on. but it does roll better in a higher gear. any thoughts or solutions that could fix that. it was like this when I got it in January. just know got around to figuring it out. could this keep it from starting?

Probably just needs a slight clutch adjustment I wouldn't let it drive you nuts. If it effects your riding ( like jolts forward when you put it in gear) I would adjust it or have someone do it for ya

Is this when cold or fully warmed up?
Cold the lubricant will give you a bit of "stick" when trying to roll it around.
Warmed up it should move pretty easily.

I cant tell if it messes up my driving because the bike wont start. when I pull the clutch in it should move like im pushing a bicycle but its still turning the whole engine so it has resistance. I cant seem to get it were it rolls like a bike free and smooth! its really agitating. am I not adjusting it right or is something else wrong?

Are you adjusting the clutch or the lever?

70-80 is "cold" and definitely not operating temp.

Mine does the same thing cold. Never tried it up to temp. Has no effect while riding. I still plan to adjust the clutch soon.

im adjusting both and I cant even get it started.

I wouldn't even worry about the clutch at this point. I'd adjust it to factory and forget it until you got it running, so you can test it for real.

Your Blast weighs a LOT more than a bicycle, it will never roll that smoothly.

You need to get it started before you worry about the clutch.

alright well it started fine till I compressed the shocks to transport it on a tailer and then it didn't. do you know of anything that could have come loose or slightly adjusted. it turns over just don't fire up.
