springs, pressure plate, push rod, lifter lever thing? did you put it in the way you took it out? pop your clutch cover off and see whats going on.

Consult your service manual for the exact number of plates your bike requires. It is possible you are missing two.

I think you left a part out. Most likely, you forgot either the pushrod, ball bearing, or lifter thingy at the end.


I hate to rain on your parade, but if he left out any of that, the clutch would engage just fine.. It wouldn't release worth a damn though.

I'm going with Trashrider on this one...

I have a new clutch kit for a CR125, says its for a 95 to 2001 or some such.. But it's two plates short of fitting my bike.

A more well thought out idea, did you remember to put the pressure plate springs in? If they weren't there, that would cause the clutch to not engage and feel like it was all freeplay. Leaving plates out might cause the clutch to not engage, but you would still have resistance from the springs as you pulled the lever.

i have everything that i need but the clutch rod is too short to push the cover or basket out to disengage the clutch. ive even tried putting in my old plates and no luck. according to the manual i am not missing any parts either.

Take some pictures of everything as it is.. Let us see, someone should be able to find the problem.. Oh, when you take pics, make sure they're in focus.. It's just easier that way..
Even if you are not super close, focus is more important.

The clutch rod shown here is not meeting up with the clutch cover (the round thing that covers the plates) (not the engine cover).

so the lifter, thing that looks like bolt with washers is not pushing your pressure plate to dis-engage the clutch then?

you installed the springs correctly....does your model have the little ball bearing that sits inbetween the lifter and the push rod? did you install that if so?

its just a tiny metal ball, like out of a ball bearing. Its about the diameter of the push rod, it sits inside the lifter and the push rod goes in behind it. but, some bikes and models didnt have them, i think. every bike iv worked on has though. good luck.

from looking at a oem schematic your bike (2004 cr 250r) does not have that little ball.

http://www.bikebandit.com/partsbandit/showschematic.asp?dept_id=1134075

^^this ^^ is the link to that schematic, make sure every part is there and assembled in that order on your bike with the right amount of clutch plates.

from the schematic it looks like there should be a bearing(#22), a washer (#23), and a clip (#1) on the end of the lifter, it may be there but the pic is outta focus so I cant tell?
