Motorcycle Clutch And Switch.

Motorcycle Clutch Function.

Motorcycle Clutch functions normally take place through cable and some model's may have hytdraulic system too.
This allows you to change gears according to your speed.
Sudden gear change from top gear to low gear will make your motorcycle to slow down with large noise.
Sudden gear change from LOW gear to Top gear can make your motorcycle to stop.
When going on slow speed use low gears, when you pickup more speed, then move up to other top gears.
If you are going to climb a hill, come down to low gears. Don't try to change your gear while climbing or decending a hill.
Don't run on half clutch for long distance. (High gear operation on slow speed by holding the clutchlever half-way)
If you used to run frequently, there are chances for your clutch plates to worn out.
With fully worn out clutch set, your motorcycle won't move. (Of course Engine will be running).
Replacing a Clutch plate set needs one large special tool.

 

Motorcycle clutch switch.

Motorcycle clutch switch plays an important role in the starting when the clutch is engaged with the engine. When the clutch is engaged this micro switch fitted in the clutch lever area protects the starter motor from starting the engine. In this position you must pull the clutch lever and in return the lever will push the micro switch in. At this point you can start the motorcycle with the help of the electric starter.

The motorcycle clutch switch will support the rider when he is waiting for the signal light. If the engine dies, then he don't need to change the gear lever to get it to neutral. Just pull the clutch lever and can start the engine without any problems and can move on.
