Q Why is my NC750X being a pig on some gearchanges?
My 2015 NC750X has trouble getting into neutral once it’s warmed up. It slots in fine for the first few miles but after that needs revving to 2000rpm or more to slot in. The dealer said this could be because the chain was tighter than usual and slackened it slightly, which helped slightly for a while. Michael Sedgwick, email
Answered by Scott Bullett, Doble Motorcycles This sounds like a dragging clutch. When the clutch wears the cable gets tighter until there is no freeplay and the clutch wear accelerates until you get slip from burnt-out clutch plates or drag from distorted clutch plates. Check that freeplay at the clutch lever is at least 6mm and if you still have the problem you’ll need to strip the clutch to examine the condition of the plates.
Clutch wear could be your problem
