Motorcycle Clutch Failure Accidents

One of the most exhilarating parts of riding a motorcycle is the direct feeling of control between your vehicle and the road. There is a connection between the rider, the bike, and the environment that is unlike any other experience. But if that control is disrupted by a mechanical failure, the results can be devastating. In particular, clutch failure on a motorcycle is a dangerous problem that can contribute to serious motorcycle damage as well as dangerous motorcycle accidents.

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you deserve to be fairly compensated for your loss. Clutch failure may be caused by a defective design or by manufacturing defects, and we believe these errors are simply unacceptable.

Defective Motorcycle Components

As a motorcyclist, the proper functioning of your clutch is crucial to every ride. Not only can a defective clutch keep you from starting your bike at all, but it could also cause a dangerous, nerve-wracking situation if it fails on the road. Your clutch function is crucial to being able to control your engine function and ultimately, your ability to control your bike. If you cannot safely shift into another gear, you may not be able to avoid a dangerous accident. The following factors can contribute to clutch failure while driving:

  • Broken clutch cable
  • Broken clutch lever
  • Clutch pack slipping

If you are in this dangerous situation, it is important to lower your revolutions and attempt to shift down to neutral without the clutch and come to a safe stop. While this may help prevent some dangerous crashes, some motorcycle accidents are simply unavoidable. You should not be left to bear the burden of a manufacturer’s negligence.
