Default clutch Problem

I have an 2001 f4i and i was riding today and pulled the clutch lever in and it stayed in and the bike would not disengage the gear (stayed in gear)? any help.. Do i need a new clutch?

Sounds like your clutch cable broke. Does the clutch lever move around freely now with no resistance? If so, broken cable. It's like a $25 part IIRC, and very easy to replace yourself.

Clutch cable would be my first guess.

If the clutch lever on the crankcase moves when you pull the clutch in, I believe it is time to get your hands dirty. I think your next step is to take off the right crankcase over and inspect the clutch. Check the spring, friction disk, basket, ect for wear and/or broken pieces. Good luck
