My friend has a 92 Yamaha TDM850, thought the clutch was possibly slipping. His description was that in the higher rpm's, it felt like a hesitation, then grab. I suggested it could be multiple things including clutch, air/fuel mix, spark, etc.
-Took it apart
-Friction plates looked fine
-Put it back together
-Adjusted the clutch cable
He says now you try to put it in gear, the neutral light goes off but it's not in gear. Is that narrowed down to a clutch plate put on backwards? Pretty sure the friction plates orientation doesn't matter, but what's the effect of a backwards steel plate?
