Clutch grabbing when cold and hot and sticking in gear when hot.

Clutch plate and servo clutch free of oil.

Gears stick when changing down but only when hot.

All advise welcome

Hello, Gabbing clutch may be broken centralizing springs. Tight when hot gear change my be the battery carrier/ foot rest spacer needing the two nuts adjusting. This is to do with things expanding as the engine warms.
Regards John.
