comment difference between mechanical and hydraulic clutches
@DustinDavis, from the physics standpoint, the liquid, for the purposes of this application, is considered as “incompressible”. Therefore, as soon as the pressure applied on one end of the pipe, liquid instantaneously transfers that force over to another end. It is like pushing a stick, except that stick is wet, and can follow elaborate route.

comment Is changing gear to `Neutral` at all possible times a bad practice?
Note that it applies to long tows (sometimes they specify it as 20, 30 or 50 miles). Under the regular driving conditions this is not applicable, unless you live near fifty-mile shallow grade descent. In that case, I would put coasting down there on my bucket list.

This could be construed as an answer, if it was formed more like a general troubleshooting guide. So I would leave it as an answer, if mods would consider it. Also, if properly worded, it could get some votes, and even get accepted if it helps to solve the problem, and no better alternative available. However, thank you for acknowledging it as a comment, many new people just plop useless answers all the time. And welcome to Mechanics.SE.

While this can be a good solution, this is a bad answer. Simply linking to outside content is not welcome (if link becomes unavailable, the value of this answer rapidly goes to zero). Elaborate, quote, post images.

Voted to close, not because the idea of the question is bad, but because it is incomplete. Provide more information about the specific motorcycle and the exact problem you are having, and we shall consider reopening.
