Question about Motorcycles
I have a 2009 keeway superlight 125. My clutch "grabs" or "snatches" as it is let out at the last 10% or so. When started from cold and ridden, there is hardly anything at first but starts getting more "grabby" and "snatchy" as I go on and as the engine warms. I've tried the usual checking of cables for any fraying and the freeplay at the handlebar end of the cable etc but nothing wrong in that aspect.I originally thought it may have had the wrong oil in so I changed the oil with some Castrol 10w40 but no real difference. I did a bit of research and I've come to the conclusion that it could be that there is excessive play on the input shaft in the transmission. I'm open to suggestions as I would like an easier possible fix than dismantling my transmission. It only really bothers me as I pull away from a standstill. Any ideas from you guys will be greatly appreciated and I thank you in advance. Cheers, John

SOURCE: How to install a clutch cable
I have a Honda, so it might be slightly different, however best to start at the top, unwind by finger or pliers the little knobs that help adjust cable tension on the inner end of your clutch lever, so that the open slots line up. With a little wiggle you should be able to lift the cable out of the slot.
The bottom end will be roughly similar, but you may need some slack to get it out so you may need to pull some of the cable through first.
Usually the cable outer sheath is held to the frame and other things by various clips or ties, make sure you remember the way the cable goes so when you put it back in you can do everything the same.
You should now be able to reverse your operation by popping in the bottom part, laying the cable right and then slip the top in again, make sure the tighten the knobs at the top for how you like your clutch to feel.

Pull the slide out of the carb then move the clip on the jet needle down one or two notches. This will richen the low range fuel mix. You can also get a rear sprocket with about 4 more teeth. This will get you off the line and out of the corners faster BUT it will also lower your top speed.
Please rate this solution. Thanks supergunner!

The clutch arm where the cable connects is on the left and it connects to the clutch via a shaft that pushes a rod which then pushes a ball bearing sitting in the holder and then the holder pushes the clutch operating plate to dis-engage the clutch. The only seal is on the clutch arm shaft that goes into the casing. At worst, only the springs on the operating plate would need to be removed then a 1/4" inward push on the rod from the right side would give clearance for the shaft to be inserted.
