I have to pull in the clutch all the way for it to disengage. all it takes is to let it out just a little I feel the gears engaging. I know it is hydraulic but does it adjust auto? It shifts fine for 85,000 miles, the familar clankiness of goldwing gears. Not grinding as I tryo to pull in the clutch all the way before shifting. At stops, if I keep the handle all the way against the grip, she stays disengaged but it doesn't take much of a loose grip to engage.

Hi Roondog,
You may want to bleed the clutch, it could have air in it causing the problem!!

Sight glass on what, the clutch? I am not sure how to bleed. Regular clutch oil? where do I need to bleed? Is it like bleeding the brakes?

It probably wouldn't hurt to bleed and flush the brakes and clutch. In the mean time you can try the lazy mans bleed job on the clutch. You'll need a small spacer about 3/4 inch thick, pump the lever a few time, place the spacer between the lever and the grip pull the lever in against the spacer and let it set over night. I've seen this work many times to get more feel back in the clutch. It also work on the brakes no spacer needed on the brakes..

I have a 85 LTD and I know from experience that the clutch fluid needs topping up every 2 or 3 years. The sight glass is no help, bad design. The sight glass is too low. Use DOT 4 brake fluid.
