On my 2004 Vulcan Nomad, the clutch is very sticky from a stop it grabs about half way out then it grabs a second time as I fully release the clutch lever. I have to be careful on the throttle not to give it to much gas. Was wondering if the hydraulic clutch master cylinder parts need replacing or worst case the clutch plates and spring - its been doing this for a few years now I have over 20000 miles on the bike. @

I have a 99 nomad and found a tank that is bigger to fit but they wanted 800 american for it. found an add on from a place called tour buddy.com for 200 with all the fittings. fits on the back where the luggage rack goes. 4.5 gallons. I love it.4432f0c.jpg

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

Two things... If you have a cable type clutch then the problem will surely be on the clutch cable. If it's worn out it tends not to engage. If you have a fluid type clutch, I suggest that you have the system bleed to flush out air and this can resolve the problem.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Hi, Anonymous the answer to this question is way above my pay grade for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.
