I have a major problem, have had problems with clutch slipage in the past, caused by chain lube build up on the rod. Went to ride the Bike yesterday. clutch felt funny after taking off, clutch hydraulic lock at clutch lever and bike stoped moving. I pulled clutch slave from the bike and it still will not engage. Opened up the case and ever thing looks OK. Oil has no burned smell and clutch plates are in specs.Can't under stand how it can work one day and not the next.

Take the oil fill cap off and look at the clutch from there. Does it move while you depress the clutch lever? Not unheard of for the assembly to "slip" out of place which won't allow the pressure plate to put pressure on the discs. Make sure the pressure plate is not too far toward the outside of the bike with no pressure on the lever. Some have been able to manipulate the parts back in place with a screwdriver. Start there and see what happens.

The clutch release cylinder was extended and and locked by fluid, looks like it needs to replaced. I have the clutch cover off now, need to check both rods. Thanks for the help.

I would be very interested to know how many miles you have on your bike?

What can cause a clutch to end up this way?

Theres 65K on the bike,replaced clutch basket at 60K that was last winter and it has worked fine till now. Even when I pulled the slave unit [ it was fully extended and locked out] the clutch plates were still loose.

glad ya figgered it out, last winter I was stranded at my son's house when my Vee wouldn't move, when I'm at home, the bike is parked in heated basement, apparently there was moisture in the slave that froze, pushed my bike into my sons garage and let it thaw overnite, never had a problem again

That was the condition I was referring to earlier. Maybe you can coax it back into position without having to remove the cover.

This might be the right time to use the "Search function" and see what's the best snake oil that other people use on their chain.
It might be disconcerting if the weird stuff happened while on some mountain pass.
Good to hear you are back on the road and no harm done.
