it feels like the clutch on my 92 900 doesn't ever let go. I can get into gear fine, but any slightly quick acceleration causes the rpms to go up for a second or so before you feel/see the speed increase.
is this the clutch going bad? from what I've read, it sounds different than most clutch issues.
You can easily make your own ring tool out of a piece of 1/8" square steel stock.
It's cost you about $3 at OSH or Home Depot.
It'll be nearly indestructible, and you can re-use it several times if you need to.
The one at eeuroparts.com for $10 is very flimsy.
The one I made myself is much less of a struggle to use.
