TR7RV 1973 Tiger 750

Thanks for this thread all contributors. Very useful and instructive.

I've just fired up my 1973 Tiger for the first time in a year, and it seems the clutch plates are stuck solid.

I tried the first gear / front wheel against a brick wall method - but even dropping my weight (180lbs) on the kick wouldn't shift it. (But did a nice job of squishing the front tyre against the bricks).

Any more ideas on how to free up a stuck clutch?

(btw I've had the bike over ten years in which time it's been through a major rebuild. Approx 17,000 miles on the clock since then, but the clutch was replaced more recently.)
