Hi, I am a new member and new to riding. Purchased a 1999, 1500 SE in 2010 and really enjoy riding. I did run into an issued last summer with the clutch. There are times, randomly, when the clutch lever will not compress all the way.. Clutch depression is varied, and is solid and anywhere from almost just enough to shift to complete compression and anywhere in between.. I have asked all the people here that ride about this and know one seems to be able to give me any help as to solving this issue.

There are times when I have a hard time shifting.. I checked the Master cyl. and it is fine, Could be the slave or could be the clutch piston or could be in the transmission.. But were does one start and what am I looking for.. If anyone has experienced this and can help i would appreciate any information.

I do have a second issue. That is the fuel consumption of this year/model.. It is not good at all.. I realize that the hotter the day, the better the mileage, but if I see high 20's, that's the best & it should be better.. My mechanic used hotter plugs and tuned up but not much better..

Thanks in advance to anyone that can help me.. ELK

:waving:Hello ELK and Welcome . Have you flushed out the DOT 4 fluid in the clutch and bled the system ? The fluids in the clutch and brake should be flushed out every couple years . Another thing that comes to mind is if the hose might be breaking down internally , and it blocks the fluid .

I recommend you post your question over in the technical section. Most of the gurus won't see it over here.
