Let me explian the best I can. Today I rode for a long time. Maybe 3 + hours. When I was about to put it up I wanted to burn out my tires because Im getting new ones. The last burn out I reved it up in third gear for about 10 secs until I noticed the tires were not spinning (on pavement). So after that I tried taking off and the shit has NO pull at all in any gear. I tried tighting up the clutch up by the handle bars but that only help a little tiny bit. Not much at all. Could I have messed something up by reving it and the tires were not spining? What can I do :help:

To tighten up the clutch on the bars, you really need to loosen the cable. . .

But, you shouldn't have had it so tight that loosening it would have done anything. If you did, that could have caused it to go. . . you were getting slipping to start with.

I'd get a yamaha shop manual and a clutch kit.

I have the manual but I will never try to change just with that alone. Its to confusing for me. Does anyone know if this is a hard job. Any special tools?

Actually it doesnt seem that confusing afterall. Its not necessary to get that clutch holder right? Or is it.

Thanks for the advice guys but Im glad I didnt rely just on that because I probably would have been buying a set set of clutch and letting the dealership put them on which would be $150 or so for parts and labor. Well its 2:30 am here and I dont think I would have rested well if I didnt do what I did a few minutes ago. As I was browsing through the manual trying to learn how to install the clutch (which I prolly wouldnt have done) I read that there should be some slack in the clutch at the handlebar (5-10mm worth of loose slack). So I tested it and it stood still hard as a tree. It was 2 am and I had my tires off because Im putting new ones on tomorrow. So I had to put them back on and this time I adjusted the clutch down by the rear breaks. Well I can sleep much better knowing I dont have to buy and install new ones because now it feels like it even pulls harder than before! So thats all I needed was a little adjustment :thumbsup:

I changed my clutch and put on the GYTR clutch componets and the only part that i had troulble with was getting the rivets out of the the housing to put the primary drive gear on the new houzing. That was the first time i had ever seen underneath the cranckase of a 700R. I just used the service manual i downloaded off this site. I didnt wanna wait 2 weeks to get the dealer to do it.
