Just picked up a 2001 Kawasaki KLF300-C13 Bayou 300 4X4, the clutch seems to be slipping then catches. After a few minutes of test driving it, it lost all gears. It sounds and feels like it shifts, but nothing.. It just sits there and can even be pushed in any gear just like it was in neutral.
I was in 2nd gear when it died completely.
Would a slipping clutch cause that or is there something else I should check out first? I pulled the clutch adjustment plate off to give that a try, but the 12mm nut will turn, but the bolt is seized to the washers.
It smokes a bit and was thinking about putting rings in it, but unsure now if something major is wrong.
I got this and a KLF 400 as a package deal and drove this about one mile before this happened. (This one wouldn't start when I picked it up and was bought as is so I was unaware of any clutch slipping issues).

Hopefully this should be a quick. I'm just replacing Primary and secondary clutches on my Bayou / KLF300 4x4.
The centrifugal clutch was totally shot so decided to change both the bell and centrifugal assembly.
When I took it apart the centrifugal clutch retaining nut was loose 😒 so it’s obviously been apart before.
Putting it back together I've noticed that the bell has a 1mm endfloat. The inside shim is in place, I've checked the thickness is correct 0.8mm and everything is as it should be. I've tried putting the original clutch parts back in and it’s the same.
So the obvious question, is this endfloat normal?
Thanks in advance guys.
