OK, on returning from a long trip on my 41 UL (1000miles) the clutch suddenly goes out, floppy pedal and loads of play in the lever across the top of the gearbox. I stop, take the cover off, make adjustments using the pull rod adjuster going through the gearbox, get the right amount of play etc. Continue home another 15 miles, clutch out again and when I back the back down the drive it's making all sorts of clicking noises, something is buggered.
So I strip the clutch and remove the kicker cover to check the thrust bearing - nothing obvious. However I end up replacing the pull rod (had some wear around the rod about and inch from the thrust bearing end??) clean all the components and refit. Running a 5 finger clutch, alloy pressure plate, and the notched nut adjusting plate, which has worked for the last 10 years.
All back together, I can select a gear and bike moves forward BUT it wont go back when its in gear and clutch disengaged, if it does same loud clicking noise and lots of resistance.
Before I strip it again does anyone have any idea what it could be????
