Honda Motorcycle Troubleshooting Searches: CLUTCH INFORMAITON The purpose of the clutch is to smoothly disengage and engage the engine from the rear wheel for starting, stopping and shifting gears. The clutch is a wet, multiple-disc clutch with steel plates and fiber (friction) plates stacked alternately in the clutch shell.
The pack consists of seven fiber plates, seven steel plates, one narrow fiber plate, one damper spring and one damper spring seat. The fiber plates (clutch driving plates) are keyed to the clutch shell, which is driven by the engine through the primary chain. The steel plates (clutch driven plates) are keyed to the clutch hub, which drives the rear wheel through the transmission and secondary drive belt. When the clutch is engaged (clutch lever released), the diaphragm spring applies strong force against the pressure plate. The pressure plate then presses the clutch plates together causing the plates to turn as a single unit. The result is that the rotational force of the clutch shell is transmitted through the clutch plates to the clutch hub.
As long as the transmission is set in a forward gear, power from the engine will be transmitted to the rear wheel. When the clutch is disengaged (clutch lever pulled to left handlebar grip), the pressure plate is pulled outward (by clutch cable action) against the diaphragm spring, thereby compressing the diaphragm spring. With the pressure plate retracted, strong inward force no longer squeezes the clutch plates together. The fiber plates are now free to rotate at a different relative speed than that of the steel plates (i.e. Slippage between the clutch plates occurs).
The result is that the rotational force of the clutch shell is no longer fully transmitted through the 'unlocked' clutch plates to the clutch hub. The engine is free to rotate at a different speed than the rear wheel. CLUTCH TROUBLESHOOTING CLUTCH SLIPS. Incorrect clutch release adjustment. Check and adjust clutch release mechanism. Worn clutch plates. Check service wear limits.
Replace plates. CLUTCH DRAGS. Incorrect clutch release adjustment.
Check and adjust clutch release mechanism. Worn clutch release ramps or balls. Replace release ramps and/or balls. Warped clutch steel plates. Replace clutch steel plates.
Blade worn or damaged clutch gear splines. Replace clutch gear or hub as required. Overfilled primary. Drain lubricant to correct level. COMPRESSION TEST Satisfactory engine performance depends upon a mechanically sound engine. In many cases, unsatisfactory performance is caused by combustion chamber leakage. A compression test can help determine the source of cylinder leakage.
A proper compression test should be performed with the engine at normal operating temperature when possible. Disconnect spark plug wires. Clean around spark plug base and remove spark plugs. Connect CYLINDER COMPRESSION GAUGE (Part No. HD-33223-1) to front cylinder per manufacturer's instructions. Make sure transmission is in neutral.
With throttle plate in wide open position, crank engine continuously through 5 to 7 full compression strokes. Note gauge readings at the end of the first and last compression strokes. Record test results. Connect CYLINDER COMPRESSION GAUGE to rear cylinder and repeat Steps 3 and 4. Compression is normal if final readings are within the range specified in Table 3-22, and do not indicate more than a 10 psi (0.689 Bar) variance between cylinders. If compression is below 100 psi (6.89 Bar) for 1100 cc engines or 150 psi (10.3 Bar) for 1200 cc engines. Inject approximately 1/2 oz.
(15 ml) SAE 30 engine oil into each cylinder and repeat the compression tests on both cylinders. Readings that are considerably higher during the second test indicate worn piston rings. NOTE: After completing the compression test(s) and reinstalling the spark plugs, make sure the throttle plate is in the closed position before starting the engine. COMPRESSION TEST RESULTS RING TROUBLE Compression low on first stroke, tends to build up on the following strokes, but does not reach normal. Improves considerably when oil is added to cylinder. VALVE TROUBLE Compression low on first stroke, does not build up much on following strokes. Does not improve considerably with the addition of oil.
Check for correct pushrod length. HEAD GASKET LEAK Same reaction as valve trouble. CYLINDER LEAKAGE TEST The cylinder leakage test pinpoints engine problems including leaking valves, worn, broken or stuck piston rings and blown head gaskets.The cylinder leakage tester applies compressed air to the cylinder at a controlled pressure and volume and measures the percent of leakage from the cylinder. Use CYLINDER LEAKDOWN TESTER and follow the specific instructions supplied with the tester. The following are some general instructions that apply to Honda motorcycle engines: 1.
Run engine until it reaches normal operating temperature. Clean dirt from around spark plugs and remove the spark plugs. Remove the air cleaner and set the throttle in the wide open position. The piston in the cylinder being tested must be at top dead center of compression stroke (both valves closed) during the test.
To keep the engine from turning over when air pressure is applied to the cylinder, engage transmission in fifth gear and lock the rear brake. NOTE: Before performing the cylinder leakage test, verify that the tester itself is free from leakage to obtain the most accurate test results. With a soap solution applied around all tester fittings, connect the cylinder leakdown tester to the compressed air source and look for any bubbles that would indicate leakage from the tester. Following the manufacturer's instructions, perform a cylinder leakage test on the front cylinder.
Make a note of the percent of leakage. Leakage greater than 12% indicates internal engine problems. Listen for air leaks at induction module intake, exhaust pipe and head gasket. Air escaping through the induction module indicates a leaking intake valve. Air escaping through the exhaust pipe indicates a leaking exhaust valve. NOTE: If air is escaping through valves, check push rod length. Repeat procedure on rear cylinder.
NOTE: After completing the cylinder leakage test(s) and reinstalling the spark plugs, make sure the throttle plate is in the closed position before starting the engine. DIAGNOSING SMOKING ENGINE OR HIGH OIL CONSUMPTION Check Prior to Cylinder Head Removal 1.
Oil tank overfilled. Oil carryover.
Breather hose restricted. Restricted oil filter. Check After Cylinder Head Removal 1. Oil return passages for clogging. Valve guide seals. Valve guide to valve stem clearance. Gasket surface of both head and cylinder.
Cylinder head casting's porosity allowing oil to drain into combustion chamber. O-ring damaged or missing from oil pump/crankcase junction. When an engine needs repair, it is not always possible to determine definitely beforehand whether repair is possible with only cylinder heads, cylinders, and pistons disassembled, or whether complete engine disassembly is required for crankcase repair. Most commonly, only cylinder head and cylinder repair is needed (valves, rings, piston, etc.), and it is recommended procedure to service these units first, allowing engine crankcase to remain in frame. Follow the procedure outlined in TOP END OVERHAUL: DISASSEMBLY, Stripping Motorcycle for Top End Repair, to strip motorcycle for removal of cylinder heads, cylinders, and pistons. After disassembling 'upper end' only, it may be found that crankcase repair is necessary; this requires removal of engine crankcase from chassis outlined in REMOVING ENGINE FROM CHASSIS.
