Clutch or ?
I wish I could say I knew more than I do, but I don't. Went to take the bike out and the front brakes were acting up again. They were grabbing and I couldn't move it. I bleed them and they softened up. So, I'll count that as an anomaly. The speedometer is now working do to the cable not being seated properly.
The main reason I'm posting is I had been experiencing an issue with the bike clutch engaging. I would pull the clutch all the way in and shift. The bike would get off to a very slow craw then engage into first gear. I performed adjustments. The top adjustment did nothing. (i understand this is the fine adjustment) I adjusted the lower and now it engages at the very last second. it jumps. More adjustments are in order, I"m guessing.
So here's the rub. after riding the bike for 10 minutes it seemed to be running ok minus clutch issues but the more I rode the more it started hesitating. I was on the open road now bringing up rpms to 5 or 6 then shifting. I have the feeling the clutch isn't working properly almost as if it's preventing the bike from running. In addition, when I parked it white smoke is coming out of the right side exhaust. Could my clutch be screwed up as the person who tried to get it running before I bought it could have rode the clutch to over power the locking brakes.
Had a nice ride though at first. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
