I have got a x18 bike used and when I turn the bike on I shift the gear I can hear it shift and the speedometer tells me what gear I'm in but the bike does not move when I give it gas in any gear it does not move. And when the bike is off and in gear the bike moves freely.

I checked the chain it's on I'm trying to take the clutch of but no success:confused:
Help
Thanks in advance

Could have something broke inside. Even with a bad clutch you would feel drag with clutch out and in gear I would think. On the right side case, take that little 2 screw cover off, that's where your clutch cable hooks to a barrel and open and closes the clutches see if anything is wrong. If your shifter barrel or something is broke inside it may not be shifting in to gear at all. When you pull the clutch handle in does it fill stiff like you have a clutch??

Make sure the lever on the right side of the motor goes all the way down try removing the cable and put a spring on the lever then down low to pull the lever down towards the ground or just use your hand with it in gear and c if it still moves in gear a lot of the return springs break on these bikes so that would be my first place to check

The whole cover that those prices are sitting in needs to come off the motor side cover you will also need to drain the oil and you will need a clutch removal tool there like $10 on eBay

True but might as well change the oil if you do new clutches
And on these bikes anytime is a good time to change the oil LOL

On the photos, your avatar has to be around 90Kb, that's pretty small. The other 5 you post have to be 512Kb or less. I'm am not very good at the digital stuff. I put my photos in Pictures in Windows 7 Home Premium, 12Megs, drag them to Paint, click Image, re-size photo, pixels, 1350 x 995 click ok, click the red X box in the upper corner and click save. Avatar photo is around 200 x 150 pixels.

I haven't worked on any of mine there still new, but have worked on big Hondas, there parts are very similar to the ones we have. I bought a $28 Cylmers Honda repair manual w/ photos, at BikeBandit, 1966 to 1999 OHV single cyld engines. There are aleast 6 different clutches in the real Hondas.
