97 warrior clutch problem (always in gear)

Recommended Posts

I have a 97 warrior that sat in the garage for 3 years. I needed to replace cylinder and head gasket. I finally got it done and it started right up. Now my clutch doesn't work. It ALWAYS in gear. The clutch feels normal. I took the clutch cover off and compressed the pressure plate. Everything seems fine except it's always in gear. I'm new at this so please be kind.

Thank you

First I would recommend buying a manual. When you mean it is always in gear, I assume you mean that the clutch is not disengaging. Try taking the entire clutch assembly apart. Some of the plates and friction discs may be stuck together making it impossible for the clutch center to spin freely from the basket. You may need to replace the clutch plates and friction discs.

Like DD said...it's just an issue where it's not disengaging the gear. Now the clutch worked before your did the top end? Not sure what would cause it not to all of a sudden..did you do anything to the clutch, the cable, etc...during your repairs? You just took the cyclinder head off right?

I just did only top end. Cable is works fine. Everything seems to be in good working condition. I got this thing from a friend with good intentions. Sat around garage for 3 yrs. If I remember correctly, I had used the clutch to move the bike few times but maybe I'm wrong. Anyone know the size of the nut inside behind what I guess to be the pressure plate. I have to go buy the socket. I really appreciate everyones help/ comments. Thank you very much.

Not sure, probably somewhere between 21 and 27mm, but you could measure the nut manually.

I did measure it. The only reason I asked is that I had to go buy it. Thank you VERY much. So I got it apart and it seems I'm missing the #7 on the diagram (Plate thrust 1). I ordered it along with new clutch plates. I'm hoping this does it. My son can't wait! Thanks again:-)

I think that you are on the right track, let us know if you have anymore questions when you are putting the new clutch in.

As it turns out, I was just assembling the clutch wrong. Apparently the people that had it before me must have taken it apart and reassembled it wrong. Works fine now. The funny thing is my friend who I got this quad from said it was running and then just died. I found it had no compression. When I took the head off I notices the front valve wasnt sealing. I adjusted until I saw it was sealing, replaced cylinder/ head gasket and fired right up. Had been sitting for more than 3 years. Is this a known issue with Warriors. Ive seen a few Warriors posted on craigslist with the same problem. They say it was running and just died. Im wondering if the valve jumps thread causing these to have no compression. I emailed the people on craigslist notifying them of my experience. I hope it was helpful to them. Thanks for all your help......

      Hi
      Anyone else with a 2017 sportsman with EPS, experiencing hard lock up with the CVT clutches.
      As compared to my friends 2006 Polaris 500 HO they seem to be a lot smoother engagement.
      Any ideas or is this normal for this model.

      got 7 atvs off CL recently for a good price.  one of which is a yamaha warrior.  anyone know where the vin is printed on this bike?  Haha good place to start as I do not know year or size yet.  The former owner says needs exhaust ans and clutch work.  he said it ran fine until the clutch cable broke and then I couldn't get the new cable adjusted right and it would grind gears.  things I see:  clutch cable locked up again, no brakes, carb leaking (green with algae around the bowl and has gelled gas stalagtights on it), aftermarket exhaust melted the airbox so I need something different and a new air box.  I would like the use the current exhaust if I can but I have a feeling its a redneck fix as it looks like there is an ace bandage holding it to the exhaust pipe (its an aftermarket slip-on exhaust), so I'm not sure about that- lets get the bike running first.  also, battery (looks brand new, what a shame) is dead, 0 volts.  Otherwise, bike looks to have not been wrecked, and plastics are ok (it sat outside under a 'tarp' for 3+ years since it was run last).  any tips and advise on where to start first would be awesome as this is my first clutched bike (manual).
      the clutch is my main concern- I've never rode a clutched bike so I dont even know what its supposed to feel like.  lol I'm spoiled on my automatic polaris

      I just bought a Yamaha Big Bear 350 from 1992. The previous owner has run it on regular engine oil and I have problems with the clutch slipping. I think that's the reason.
      So what should I do?
      - Just change oil and it will be OK?
      - Clean engine/clutch + new oil?
      - Or do I need a new clutch?

      It is guessing the centrifugal clutch that slips. It has two clutches , it also has a "regular" clutch .
      Anyone who has any experience of using wrong type of oil?

      How do I replace the pinion clutch shaft in a 1987 Suzuki LT230 quadrunner? It starts up on the first kick but when I put it in gear it wants to kick up. I can give it gas and put it in gear but my clutch lever isn’t doing anything. SOS

      My Hawkeye runs great just wont pull could this be the breaking clutch or the drive clutch thanks for any help

      I just bought a 86 Bayou 300 and when it’s running and you shift into a gear the engine stalls and dies. I throttle it up little and it will run and move but the transmission slips really bad. As long as I’m just a little over idle it will move but slips with any more throttle. I’ve been reading that this is probably a centrifical clutch issue. I’ve found an aftermarket clutch for an 88 model but can’t find one for a 86. Are these the same? 
      Any help would be appreciated.
