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.

Yea, the pivit, or arm that holds the cutch master cylinder needs to be replaced or taken out and weld it and reinforce it.

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. mj

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.
