I just got the bike so im not for sure. when i got it the clutch handle was broken. So i just took for granted. The was that bike was niglected so i've been going through it piece by piece finally got it runing right and now this.it shifts fine and when i'ts not runing it goes through the gears fine. i'ts like something is sticking within the clutch pack wierd never experienced this before with any bike.it either enguages fully or slips. it try's to fall on its face when you put it in gear but understandible due to the fact it lunges forward but pops right in gear and i thought maybe fork was bent thats why i adjusted clutch and i adjusted so far that it sliped when rideing and still the same thing it lunges and has to much pressure on trans to allow it to pop in nuteral while running here is a question though could to much trans lube cause this? cant wait to get it right this bike is a beast much more power then i expected from a 450 supprised me big time. thanks for responses and i hope we can get to the bottom of this.

it could either be a worn out clutch or a slave/syncro sleeve. If you adjust it till it slips then turn it back until it stops with a slight play in the clutch handle you clutch should be set. but if it slips when it is set then it may be possible to have to much fluid.

too much fluid or the wrong fluid- another one with car oil in it?

That's a good point Lawny. Using the wrong oil, or low quality oil could be causing problems too, conventional oils, especially cheap ones, have a tendance to leave deposits, these deposits are likely to build up on things like clutch plates and cause slipping. Automotive oil uses friction modifiers that are not good for wet clutch applications, that will also cause slipping. I would start by changing your oil, and while the oil is drained, take the clutch cover off, take the clutch apart and inspect the clutch components for damage, excessive wear, or deposits on the discs and plates. Make sure all the linkage is in proper order too.
