10 kawasaki zx6r clutch problem

So, I recently got a 2010 zx6r with 1500miles on it. The bike runs great but when I bought it the clutch was kinda weird. It seemed like the adjustments were wrong so I adjusted the clutch lever spin dial first, and it seemed to be ok after that. A few days later it was doing the same thing(moving while the clutch was in gauged. Holding the clutch lever in and putting the bike in first would stall it most of the time) when that happen I adjusted the cable by the engine and that seemed to help a lot. A few days later I had to adjust it again and again and finally after I got to the end of the cable it wouldn't even let me shift. At this point I ordered a clutch thinking this was the problem. I put the clutch in just like the service manual said. The problem I am having now is the clutch release rod won't caught the other rod inside the clutch. It is doing the same exact thing it was doing before, even with the new Barnett clutch. So the clutch plates and springs were not the problem. Dose anyone know what my problem could be. The bike shop is of no help and it seems they want me to destroy my bike. They told me to do a burn out and that might fix it(I have no oil in my engine due to the fact that. I was changing the plates out) so I don't think they know what they r doing so I'm not taking my bike there. Help please!! if I knew how to send pics I would. I'll find out in a few min tho.

I just had that problem on my 08 all I did was replace the pin that sticks out from the clutch basket.

Though your bike is much newer with less miles, still check out my old thread, maybe it will help. Good luck.

Bah... stranded again, clutch issue

Thank you zxrom the pic of your arm looks a lot better than mine dose. The rod inside my clutch looks perfect . So I'm going to order the 2 parts today from bike bandit there prices are kinda height but they can deliver with express shipping and that sounds good to be do to the fact that my bike has been sitting for 3 weeks. Thank you again

Since you got an aftermarket clutch, I'd check and make sure the pin length i correct and the pin to rod clearance is correct as well, also when you install the clutch cover back on, the rod needs to be at a certain angle, it's in the repair manual.

Btw, how is the cable itself?

Oh ok. Just ordered the parts. The clutch cable seems to be ok. I don't see any damage to it.

Seems that clutch problem is really a problem with zx model even with my friends zx12 and zx9r. But once you change the clutch kit with aftermarket once problem will be solved.
