Clutch takes long to disengage
« on: 19 September 2021, 14:19 »
Hi ,

my 70 1300 AS has been a long time with me. Its near 100k now,got a new paintjob. Drivetrain is original. After checking the carb, readjusting the clutch, renewing all hoses all works like a charm....but only after a cold start.

After about 6 times of shifting were the clutch takes about 1 second to close ( with a hearable popoff sound) , the sound is gone and clutch takes about 5 to 10 seconds to close. I suspect that the Check valve in the control valve is the problem...

any hints ?

Thanks

Alex

If adjustment of the control valve does not help then I agree. I posted a thread on this site on rebuilding mine some time ago. You can probably search it out using my username.
