    Default Andys Build Thread- Transmission Issues.

    Figured it was about time for a build thread as this years winters mods are a bit outside my knowledge and Ill need some help from the forum again.

    First a bit of history.
    2009 M109R LE
    I purchased it from the original owner in Feb 2010. The bike had 3990 km on it at the time. The bike has 48,905 km on it now.

    Been a forum member since I got the bike. Have done all the maintenance and mods myself.
    On top of whats shown in my signature Ive done;

    • Front Motor Mounts
    • Wheel Bearings
    • Fork Seals
    • Side Burner Exhaust (replaced with Freedoms)
    • Fuel Filter
    • Spark Plugs
    • TRE
    • Various chrome covers
    • New front brake lines (+3 Galfer SS)


    Im sure there are things Im forgetting. Either way Im no stranger to the bike.

    A few pics of the bike in its current state. These are all from my trip through BC in June.

    • I guess I should update my profile photo too.
    • Also need help rotating photos

    My goal for this thread is to track my progress with the bike. Wish Id done it years ago but whatever.

    The biggest reason for me starting this thread now is because of some transmission issues Ive been having and the fact I feel its time to really tear into this thing.

    Transmission Concern

    While on my 10 day bike trip this year through the BC interior I encountered a situation where the transmission would NOT shift very well at all.

    Things to note;
    -Clutch cable is a +3 Galfer SS line. About 8500km on it prior to seeing issue
    -Cable properly adjusted prior to leaving on trip (2 quarter thickness of slack at leaver)

    When approaching a corner I tried to downshift form 4th to 3rd and found the shift leaver would not move. After a few attempts I just booted the thing and it went into 3rd. After completing the corner I went through the gears 1st to 5th with some difficulty but it seemed to go back to normal. Reached the end of the road where we had to wait for a Ferry. I stopped left the bike in first and shut it off. We sat for maybe 20-25min. When loading the Ferry the bike would NOT come out of 1st in order for me to start in neutral. Started in 1st (no biggie). Parked and sat for the 10 min Ferry ride. From here we had about a 30km ride to our hotel. During this stretch of road the bike would not shift with out considerable effort up or down. Every gear was a pain.

    Made it to town safely and once parked we started to adjust the clutch cable thinking it loosened off and was out of adjustment.
    After an hour of playing with it no matter how we adjusted the cable (top adjustment or lower adjustment) We could not get the bike out of 1st into neutral or 2nd without considerable force. Most of the time we were shifting this by hand.

    In the end we adjusted the clutch to a point where I could make it work. Rode it home another 800km like this.

    Things I noticed;

    • Bike would shift better when engine temps were lower. Once warmed up the bike was harder to shift.
    • Higher gears were easier to shift (3rd-4th-5th) Still not easy but better than 1st and 2nd.
    • Couldnt adjust the clutch cable enough to disengage the clutch when stopped. If I was in 1st at a light or something the bike would still pull as it was fully in gear.


    Over the years I have read through many of the transmission threads. My thoughts on this is that its time to get the bike tore down and do many of the clutch/transmission mods. Was thinking about checking the tub nut, completing the push pin mod, upgrading to the 2010/2011+ clutch plates and potentially dealing with what could be a bent shift fork. Also considering a Shift Star kit.

    Hoping some of you can help me out with this as I document and try to fix the issues.

    • My plan is to do some re-reading of threads in the next few weeks and start tearing the bike down in early Oct.

    it might just be distorted clutch plates andy ? (buckled or head damaged) causing the clutch to drag
    does it shift ok without the engine running ?

    No matter if the motor is on or off the level is very hard to move.

    Someone else recently had something similar and it turned out to be the rod. Hopefully this is your issue.

    Hey thanks for this. Saw it a few weeks ago. Did think that I may have the same issue. Will be inspecting those parts prior to tearing open the bike.

    If my memory is right the a loose tub nut causes a shutter when taking off. I have felt this once years ago. Either way I will be checking that its tight this winter.

    As usual life got in the way and I'm about a month behind schedule on this. Was hoping to have a parts list together by now so I could start Black Friday shopping.

    Got this Friday off work and will be spending the day in the garage. Hoping to get the exhaust off and inspect the shift linkage. With any luck I'll be able to pull clutch plates and see how bad things are.

    Ok, got the exhaust off and did crack the clutch cover.
    Didn't go much further since I ran out of time.

    On initial inspection everything looks fine. A few strange scrapes on the clutch basket but without ever seeing another one, is this is normal?

    Did find a bit of discoloration on the inside of the clutch cover. Again unsure if this is normal??
    - mostly the blue coloring is found in the circular area and up in the one corner.

    **Did inspect the shift linkage on the left side of the bike. Couldn't see any damage or anything bent so I'm not thinking my issue is this as stated above.



    Tonight my hope is to pull the bolts/springs out along with all the plates, rings and washers. Hopefully this will give me a better idea of whats happening.

    Have been reading a great deal of older threads (and watching YouTube vids) to find helpful tips and some ideas of what others have done. Depending one what I find as I go in further I will at a minimum be doing the following;

    1- Grind push pin- will grind 3 sides not 2 as mentioned here. I'll need to send this out to get done as I don't have a bench grinder nor am I that skilled with a grinder. Would really like this to be done right.
    https://www.m109riders.com/forums/sh...light=push+pin

    2- Change out pressure springs- unsure if i should go with newer stock spring (from 2010+ model) or the Cycle House stiffer ones? Haven't found a lot of info on the stiffer ones and seems most just do OEM ones.

    3- Clutch Plates- at a minimum I probably have to swap out a few parts due to wear based on my mileage. Part diagram numbers 6, 12 & 13. I'd really like to upgrade to the 2010+ plates. will need to do more reading up on what exactly I need to do this? Confirming part numbers will be key.
    https://www.m109riders.com/forums/sh...=1#post3737250

    4- EVO Shift Star Kit- figured why not? I'm in here and with any luck MeanCycles will have a Black Friday sale so I can get this cheaper to negate the exchange rate problem.....
    **Not a lot of info on this topic. with need to do more reading.

    5- New Clutch Cover Gasket- no brainier here.


    Would love to hear any feedback anyone has. There are a large number of threads on this subject but yet I still have questions.


    More to come.

    I'm not a mechanic, but those scrapes on the basket and cover look like something is off-axis. I would expect no marks on either with a properly working clutch.

    After inspecting it better last night the scars on the pressure plate do not seem like they should be there. Will post better pictures in a bit.
    thing is none of the spring bolts were loose, there are no marks on the inside of the clutch cover to make someone think it was off-axis.

    Maybe someone with experience will chime in on whether or not this is a problem?

    Put the kid to bed last night and hit the garage.

    Was able to get the spring bolts out and pulled the Pressure Plate and Discs.

    A few better photos of the Pressure Plate. Really not sure if these marks are of any concern?

    Pin came out no issue. A very small amount of oil on and around the pin.

    Got all the plates/discs out. No issue sliding them out. Did notice these are very dry. No sign of oil inside the plates. Pin mod looks like its needed.

    A few of the plates do have blue discolorations on them but nothing too crazy. As described in other threads it seems I have the marks from a slight shudder. (pics in post below) Ring marks seem to be on 2 different plates.
    The other thing I noticed and am concerned about, the first 2 plates/discs were stuck to the back of the pressure plate. The 2 discs came off with the pressure plate and took some convincing to separate. Was able to peel them apart with my fingers but figured these should not be stuck together. Maybe someone can tell me if this is an issue?

    Did see a bit of sludge on the last plates and in the basket. Will clean this out but did read that its very much normal. Curious what guys are using to clean this out? Is Brake Clean ok or is it best to just use a shop rag and clean what I can?

    These plates seem to have marks from the ring on them. I believe these are the ones I have to change.
    - noticed they are wicked dry.

    Photo of the sludge at the back of basket. Will need to wipe this out before I put it all together.

    Tonight my plan is to go through the plates with the parts diagram beside me so I can confirm which plate is affected.
    Based on what I found last night I'm going to pop the 30mm nut off to inspect the tubular nut.

    Makes me wonder if you're getting oil to the clutch. Maybe a clogged oil line?

    From everything that I have read the lack of oil seems to be normal. The Push Pin mod should be the fix for this.

    These marks on the outside of the basket are normal, they are all like that.

    **Not a lot of info on this topic. with need to do more reading.

    Shift star is on the other side of the bike (left side) toward the rear.

    Something else you can check is the detent spring.
    I had a 2006 M109R that was hard as to hell to shift, you had to force the shift lever back to the center position before it would change gears and even then it was not easy.
    Turned out to be a $5 spring was cracked......replaced this spring and it shifted like a new bike.

    Here is the link to the parts diagram
    http://www.oneidasuzuki.com/store/pa...r-2006-09.html

    The spring is #21 on the diagram. (Click on the small photo with gray around it in the link above and it will enlarge)

    One other thing that comes to mind to check would be your motor mounts.
    When they wear out your shift rod can start hitting on the bottom of the generator cover and make it very hard to shift and can also start pinching on your clutch cable if it is still run as from factory behind the motor mount.

    Thank you for this, I'll check that spring tonight.

    I have changed out the front motor mounts for the harder OEM ones years ago. After checking my maintenance log, I've put about 20,000 km on those since install. Good chance I should just change all 6 to the new poly ones but that might be a mod for next year. If I cant figure out this clutch thing I'll have to try this.

    I figured those were just marks from the manufacturing process too.
    The scars on the front of the pressure plate is what I'm worried about.

    Appreciate you replying.

    I have about 45K on the harder OEM mount up front and seem to be fine..Ill be replacing my clutch to the newer 2011 one this winter..I switched back to dino oil this summer and went 5-6K shudder free,with a good warm up..last couple rides of the season,in cooler weather and without a lengthy warmup it returned..with a vengeance.have the new clutch sitting on the shelf for two years,time to get her in and be done with this..
    pin ,3 side grind,a must..they just dont get enough oil

    Good to know the mounts should still be good. thanks

    In a small way I'm happy to hear I'm not alone on this venture. If I could ask, what did you purchase to make up the new clutch?
    I understand the springs and the pin mod, but the clutch plates is confusing me. Haven't had time to look at both schematics to compare part numbers. Not sure I if should just buy every plate/disc from a 2011+ clutch or if I only need a few new items?

    The newer friction and steel plates are thinner than the 1st generation, so both stacks end up being the same height even though the newer version has more plates.
    So you want to make sure you don't mix the two together and end up with a stack that is to tall.

    I have never upgraded to the newer clutch plates on any of my bikes but here is the parts list that Harris has posted on this site many times.
    If you use the search feature I am sure you can find several of his post that have this list if you want to double check it against what I have here.

    qty (6) Part # - 21413-35F10 SPRING,CLUTCH

    qty ( 6 ) Part # - 21441-22H00 PLATE,CLUTCH DR

    qty ( 5 ) Part # - 21451-22H00 PLATE,CLUTCH DR

    qty ( 2 ) Part # - 21451-48G10 PLATE,CLUTCH DR

    qty ( 1 ) Part # - 21441-48G40 PLATE,CLUTCH DR

    qty ( 1 ) Part # - 21471-48G00 SEAT,WAVE WASHER

    Thanks for this.
    In my searching I don't remember seeing that. Must have missed it.

    Seems I'll have to replace the entire stack to avoid issues. I'll need to price all this out. I bet the wife wont like that bill.... lol!
    I really want this done once and for all.

    went with more plates same size stack..there were quite a few minor changes in the 2011+ clutch..cant remember them all off the top of my head,like you,Ive had it on the back burner for a while..I got pretty good at avoiding the shudder,so I stretched it out..figure Id replace it all at 100K and be done with it..oredered complet setup and if memory serves me right it was about $900 Canadian right from a local dealer..I have a new basket,but its the same and probably could do without that.
    will get at it in December I hope..freind did his couple years back and its holding up good..I rode it just after he did it and felt very nice..much easier pull on lever and was so nice to let it go off the line without worry

    I cant wait for that feeling.
    Likely wont do the new basket. Strictly looking to change out the plates.

    When you bought the plates did you just get what Bering_C_Sparky posted above? I'm counting the parts listed versus whats shown on the parts diagram and things don't look to be adding up.

    Will need to do more searching and reading.

    There might be someone local that can help you. Probably best if you start a new thread asking. I'm up in Canada and other than updating this thread I likely wont be much help to you.
