Replaced master and slave cylinder and problem didn't get fixed. Could not shift at all. Finally a friend who works for a Suzuki dealer showed me what was wrong. Pulled out the part, had son-in-law weld it and so far it's holding.

We have a 1997 X90 in Canada.
(Btw, this site won't take a Canadian postal code so I borrowed the one for 1600 Pennsylvania Ave)
The weld failed on the clutch pedal at the pivot point .
One garage said it was only tacked (meaning amazing that it lasted this long) tried to re-weld it without success.
We will try welding the inside without adding material (tig?).
Alternatively, I have some ideas for altering the pedal to better engineer the point where the pivot post meets the pedal arm.

The clutch pedal broke off the shaft on my wife's X-90. I took the pedal and shaft out and had a friend TIG weld the shaft on both sides of the pedal. It required a minimal amount of filing on the bushing side before I put it back in. Now it works great.
