07 CBR1000rr clutch problem.

Basically, my clutch isn't fully disengaging when I pull in the clutch lever. This just started after I changed the chain and sprockets (which required the removal of the slave cylinder). However, no fluid leaked out when I had to remove the slave cylinder. I have bled the slave cylinder three times and tried riding my bike around the block a few times, with the hope that an air bubble would work its way up if there was one in the system somewhere. Now I'm at a loss as to what the problem is. If I can't figure it out tonight, I'm taking it to a shop tomorrow.

At the normal position (that the lever used to be at), it immediately stalls when I try to shift into first. When I adjust the lever all the way out, I am able to partially disengage the clutch when pulling the lever. However, when pulling the clutch lever in, my bike still wants to move very quickly unless I'm holding the brake.

Anyone had a similar problem? Did lots of searching and couldn't find out what the problem was.

As stated in the title, my bike is an 07 CBR1000rr

Thanks

Re: 07 CBR1000rr clutch problem.

Just removing the slave cylinder should have no effect on the clutch, unless of course a spacer is missing, or the rod isn't properly engaging the piston. My uneducated guess is that a spacer of some kind dropped out either in between the slave cylinder itself and the engine case, or a washer/spacer that engages the rod fell out. The system is closed, so unless you removed the banjo bolt from the slave itself, or grabbed a handful of lever while it was off the engine case, there should be no need to bleed it.

Post some pictures of what the area looks like with and without the slave attached.

I just dropped it off at a dealership. The tech pulled up an exploded view of the system and showed it to me. I didn't see any pieces that I didn't reinstall. I did move my bike while the slave cylinder was hanging loose, so there is a strong possibility that I pulled the clutch lever while pushing the bike. Just force of habit. If this is the case, what problem did it cause and how do I fix it? Thanks

The only thing I can think of quickly is if the piston popped out of the seal, but you would know that with all the leaking fluid lol, so I suppose it’s not that. But you never know. So it’s at the shop right now?

Yeah, it wasn't leaking any fluid. It's at the shop now, so we'll see what they say. Thanks for the help though

Re: 07 CBR1000rr clutch problem.

I’ve read plenty horror stories and I suspect it’s why a Honda went back to cable actuated clutches because of issues during reinstall. Seems there is a secret bleed procedure that involves clucking like a duck between fluid fills.

IIRC there is a gasket on the slave. The piston should also get some silicone grease before reinstall. I sweat bullets before getting mine back together.

Re: 07 CBR1000rr clutch problem.

Assuming your bike has a banjo fitting at the clutch master, did you try bleeding there?
If that's not it, I'm guessing remove the slave housing and look inside. Like IanDoohan said, if you might have squeezed the clutch handle in while the slave housing was off, ...
I've run into the same problem with my bike, RC51. In my case, I had the clutch rod misaligned somehow.
