Motorcycle Clutch Failure

Manual transmission is the name of the game for most motorcycles. In fact, one of the primary differences between most motorcycles and scooters is the transmission. Though there are automatic and semi-automatic transmission motorcycles on the market, most motorcycles are operated by a manual clutch. The cooperation of a hand-pulled lever and a foot activated gear selector are an integral working of nearly every motorcycle. If the clutch on a motorcycle does not operate properly, a rider can be put in a dangerous situation. Clutch failure as a result of design defect or manufacturing defect can be a dangerous problem even for the most experienced rider.

If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident and you believe that a defective clutch contributed to your damages and injury, you need a strong defense that can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Defective Clutch Components

A motorcyclist has a very active part in making sure their vehicle is operating properly. Between choosing the correct gear and ratio for their engine properly braking and steering, motorcycle operation can be a very involved process. If any component in this process is not operating properly, it can limit a drivers ability to drive safely and avoid potentially dangerous accidents. The following components in a clutch system may be subject to defective production.

  • Clutch cable
  • Clutch lever
  • Clutch pack

Each component in the clutch system is crucial for its proper functioning. If any part of the system is defectively designed or produced, it can result in serious consequences. Anything that distracts a motorcyclist from the road has the potential to cause a dangerous accident.
