SOURCE: Need to replace clutch cable on a 2002 H-D Dyna,

To replace the cable, you are going to have to remove the cover on the end of the right side of the transmission. Just follow the cable and see where it goes into transmission. You may have to remove exhaust pipes to do this. The threaded cable end screws into this cover. If the handlebars are the stock type bars, simply replace with a stock cable. If the bars have been changed, you'll have to match the overall cable length to get the right cable.

SOURCE: the clutch pulls in real hard, i have lubricated

Clutch pull effort is usually alleviated by lubricating the entire cable, adjusting the clutch won't make make the clutch handle any easier to pull, usually. Adjusting the clutch is a semi-delicate procedure that I can not cover in this venue.

I'm not sure what you mean by "engage the clutch". When some people say this, it means the clutch won't disengage the engine from the transmission. Others say it and it means that the clutch will not engage the engine and transmission and make the bike move. It's the same way with the term "backfire". To some that's a pop from the exhaust, to others is a spit back out fo the carburetor.

Now, if you took the handlebars off, you should have only has to move the cable adjuster in the middle of the cable. If you did not change any adjustment at the primary, you should only have to the adjuster in the middle of the cable to worry about. Make sure that the cable housing is seated in the adjusters like it should be. It they are out of the adjusters, it would may your clutch stay in the "pulled in " position and the clutch will not engage the engine and transmission.

Now, when you pull the clutch lever in,you should feel the resistance of the clutch. If not, the there is the possibility that the cable came disconnected in the primary case. This is rare but I have seen it happen before. To fix it, remove the outside derby cover and you should be able to reconnect the cable with the clutch release mechanism in the primary. If you need a drawing of this area, contact me directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net.

Good Luck

SOURCE: Replaced clutch lever on '07 Street Glide. All

While having the manual helps us help you, I just want t oask a few things first.
1. Did you replace just the clutch?
2. If not, did you replace the throwout bearing?
3. Is the clutch hard, soft, or non responsive?

Let me know and I'll see what more i can provide you with. Cheers!

My bike wont shift in gear at all, even after i let go of my clucth lever


Hi, My guess is that the clutch needs adjustment. Try adjusting the clutch lever (tighter).
If that doesn't work try a new clutch cable. It maybe stretched.
The next thing would be oil or greece on the clutch it self. Only if you have done this should you attempt to clean and adjust clutch. Bring to bike shop for further repairs.

How to adjust clutch on a 2008 Harley Davidson Dyna Super Glide


To adjust the clutch on your Big Twin, follow the clutch cable from the lever towards the engine until you come to the cable adjuster. Usually, it is located somewhere around the front downtubes of the frame. Slide the protective cover up or down to gain access to the adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster barrel inwards to get a good amount of slack in the cable.

Next, take the derby cover off the primary cover. Inside, you'll see the clutch assembly with the clutch adjuster screw and lock nut in the center. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster screw inwards (clockwise) until you feel a resistance. You may want to back it off and then turn it back in several times to get the feel of what you're doing. Do not force the screw as you will start to release the clutch. Turn it in until you just feel the resistance. Then, back the screw back out one half turn and lock the lock nut down. Replace the derby cover.

Then go back to the cable adjuster and turn the adjuster barrel outwards until you have about an eight inch of free travel in the clutch cable. Squeeze the lever and let it go. Pull on the cable and the housing should come out of the adjuster by about an eight inch. Lock the lock nut down and replace the protective cover.

Good Luck
Steve
