Woops, meant to say doesn't spring back into position. Pardon my brain fart!
From your description above; it sounds like you're experiencing the range of difference that can be achieved at the lever end. This takes tweaking a little to find the right spot to fine tune the total cable length that is actuated.JohnneG said:Well, clutch still not right! Now it activates to late!!! ??????????HELP
You may have already done this, but try working on the lever end first. Taking the adjuster almost all the way to the end of the threads nearest the lever edge, then doing the lower adjustments afterward should let you fine tune it at the lever for the release you're looking for.JohnneG said:I followed all the steps very carefully and even tried a few variables and couldnt seem to minipulate the clutch to my taste. I want the clutch to engage similar to a sport clutch (more what I'm used to) in the sense in I want it to engage right after I let the lever out. It should catch right away, not when the lever is almost all the way open. It's frustrating me.
I'll give you a chance to feel better by helping me do mine this weekend! Tommy and me was talking about doing some tinkering. (what you doing up so late?! hope all is okay!)IronMan said:...Sorry I can't be there to lend a hand...
Man plans.......God laughs......Goper said:My clutch cable broke yesterday...
After some search on this site I found this post...
Never changed a clutch cable before but this post convinced me I could do it my-self.... now just waiting the new cable to come ...the dealer is telling me he should have it Friday afternoon... he better be... because I have 2 days of riding already planned for the week-end
I can only answer for me. I straightened the wheel for improved access. The bike sits up straighter with the wheel straight. Old knees do not like the concrete floor of the garage.jason1gp said:This may seem like a stupid question that has already been answered but I didn't see it and just want to make sure. When adjusting the clutch is the front wheel supposed to be turned straight or to the left?
