make sure the pressure plate is fully seated.  I had this issue the other day and noticed I didn't align the pressure plate correctly.

Ok  thanks again for your help. I have bought that original filter off eBay so am going to keep everything stock and get the bike up and running with the BS38s.

Yep. CV carbs like to be fed intake air by a plenum and smooth pipe to the bellmouth.  Pods like these filter the air but introduce turbulence at the intake that confuses the vacuum signal at the vent in the top of the bellmouth  that causes the slide to raise and lower. So, a lot of times you end up with unsteady slide movement that feels like hesitation and surging. If you must run pods you'll be happier if you convert to round slide carbs without butterfies.

Yeah I have been reading up on CV carbs and pods and does not sound like fun! Interesting ideas you have there... Iíve actually got lucky and found an air filter on eBay. The foam is long gone but the rest of the mesh body is there so Iíve bought it.

I am just assuming the 77 filter will fit a 76???? Hope so!

Check the cmnsl exploded diagram, sounds like you have lost part of your rod stroke. When you pulled it apart was did you replace the ball at the end of the push rod?

Engine & Transmission / Clutch wont disengage
« Last post by Chapinje on May 15, 2018, 05:08:25 PM »
hello all, i have a 1974 yamaha tx500 that rode great last year up until the stator shit the bed. I took the engine cover off and replaced the stator and rode it fine for a couple hundred miles. While i had the covers off, i cleaned the clutch push rod actuator and greased it up. Ever since then, the clutch wont disengage. I checked the basket and everything is moving as it should, cleaned it all up and it still wont disengage. Im at a loss.. any help is greatly appreciated. (Not a ton of experience with these older bikes. Mainly build cars and dirt bikes)
