Hi Anonymous, if the oil is leaking from the clutch cable point of entry into the cover then there is an o-ring OEM part number 11179 that can be replaced. If it is leaking from the clutch cable metal housing crimp boot then you will have to replace the cable and I'm sorry you can't find the very first and best tool you ever bought for your Harley Davidson. Despair not, for a mere $6.50 you may be able to download another one from the website below and good luck.

SOURCE: oil is coming out the

Right where the threaded adjuster goes into the outer primary case, there's a locknut. There should be an O-ring on this treaded piece to seal in the oil. To replace the o-ring, you must go through the procedure to replace the clutch cable by removing the primary outer cover, disassembling the clutch release mechanism, and turning the cable out.

Good Luck

How do I adjust the clutch?


loosen adjuster on clutch cable if thats your setup so lever has tons of freeplay acess the clutch adjusting screw and jam nut loosen jam nut some models have reverse threads turn in adjusting screw until it bottoms out on clutch pack then back it out one full turn then secure jam nut while holding adjusting screw in its set position replace covers replace any lost oil then go back to cluth cable adjuster extend it so while you are pulling slightly on cable with one hand check lever freeplay with the other you want about 1/8" of free play between lever and bracket then tighten its jam nut. this is also a great time to lube said cable i like the liquid graphite my self and a tad of grease or antisieze on the last inch or of the steel braided portion that comes out of the cable housing and into the lever since this is where they break 99% of the time good luck

How to adjust clutch inside primary case?


Because the clutch cable adjuster clearance increases with engine temperature, adjust
the clutch when the engine is cold. If the clutch is adjusted when the engine is hot, insufficient pushrod clearance can cause the clutch to slip.
1. Remove the clutch mechanism inspection cover and
quad ring
2. Remove the clamp and slide the rubber boot off the clutch in-line cable adjuster.
3. Loosen the adjuster locknut and turn the adjuster to provide maximum cable slack.
4. Make sure the clutch cable seats squarely in its perch at the handlebar.
5. At the clutch mechanism, loosen the clutch adjusting screw locknut and turn the adjusting screw clockwise until it is lightly seated.
6. Squeeze the clutch lever three times to verify the clutch balls are seated in the ramp release mechanism located behind the transmission side cover.
7. Back out the adjusting screw counterclockwise 1/2 to 1 turn. Then hold the adjusting screw and tighten the locknut to 72-120 in.-lb.(8-14 N•m).
8. Once again, squeeze the clutch lever to its maximum limit three times to set the clutch ball and ramp release mechanism.
9. Check the free play as follows:
a. At the in-line cable adjuster, turn the adjuster away from the locknut until slack is eliminated at the clutch hand lever.
b. Pull the clutch cable sheath away from the clutch lever, then turn the clutch cable adjuster to obtain the clearance gap
c. When the adjustment is correct, tighten the clutch in-line cable locknut and slide the rubber boot over the cable adjuster.
10. Install the clutch inspection cover quad ring onto the primary chain case cover.
11. Install the clutch inspection cover and tighten the screws to 84-108 in.-lb. (9.5-12 N•m).

Clutch drags


You either need to adjust your clutch or you have too much oil in the primary. If the oil level is too high, it will make the clutch act like the torque converter of an automatic transmission and drag. Stand the bike straight up and check the oil level. The oil level should be higher than the lowest part of the clutch pressure plate. The pressure plate is the shiny aluminum disc with the darker black or blue clutch spring in it. The spring looks like a flat disc as it is a diaphragm type spring.

To adjust the clutch, find the cable adjuster near the down tubes at the front of the frame. Slide the rubber bellows up and loosen the locknut. Turn the adjuster inwards making the cable adjustment as loose as possible.

Now, take the derby cover off of the primary. You'll see a bolt and a locknut in the center of the clutch assembly. Loosen the lock nut and turn the center screw inwards until you feel a resistance. Do not force the screw or you will destroy your inner clutch hub. Turn the bolt inwards until you feel the resistance. Now, back off 1/2 turn and lock the locknut down. Reinstall the derby cover.

Go back to the cable adjuster and adjust it outwards until you have about an 1/8" freeplay. Lock the locknut and slide the bellows cover down over the adjuster.

Good Luck

How to adjust clutch


To adjust your clutch, follow the clutch cable down until you find a cable adjuster usually protected by a rubber bellows type cover. Move the cover up or down and loosen the lock nut. Adjust the cable adjuster inwards to make the cable as loose as possible.

Now, remove the derby cover. In the center of the clutch assembly you'll see an adjuster. Loosen the locknut and turn the center bolt inwards until you feel resistance. Do not force the bolt as you'll be disengaging the clutch. Turn it inwards until you feel the resistance, no more. Then, back the bolt back out 1/2 turn and lock the locknut. Replace the derby cover.

Then go back to the cable adjuster and adjust the adjuster outwards until you have about an 1/8" play at the lever. Lock the lock nut down and replace the cover.

BTW: If you have too much oil in your primary, it will make the clutch drag and you will be unable to find neutral with the engine running. Make sure the oil level is no higher than the lower point of the clutch spring with the bike standing straight up.

Good Luck

How do I check my transmission fluid on my flhx 07 street glide it feels like its running a bit dry and its shifting a bit hard. Thank you in advance


Look on the right side of your bike. Find the clutch cable and follow it until it goes into the transmission. This is the clutch release cover. It should have a plug in it that takes a 3/8" Allen wrench or Hex key to remove. Check the level with the bike standing straight up. Keep the oil level between the two lines. Your bike came with H-D Syn3 20W50 oil. It takes 20-24 ounces of oil.

You may need to adjust your clutch to solve the hard shifting problem. Follow the clutch cable until you find the cable adjuster. Loosen the locknut and turn the adjuster inwards to get as much slack as you can.

Remove the derby cover. In the middle of the clutch assembly, there is an adjuster. Loosen the locknut and turn the adjuster inwards until you feel a resistance. Back the screw back out and turn it in again until you get the feel of it. You don't want to force the screw or you'll be disengaging the clutch. Go in just until you feel the resistance and then back off 1/2 turn. Lock the locknut down.

Adjust the cable adjuster back out until you have about 1/8" freeplay at the clutch hand lever. Lock the locknut, replace the adjuster cover, and the derby cover.

Good Luck

Replaced clutch, oil, cables...1998 electra glide classic..bike is hard to get into neutral once it is warmed up..


Make sure you do not overfill the primary. when putting the oil in the primary, have the bikes standing as straight up as possible. Add oil only until it comes to the bottom of the clutch spring. If you put too much oil in the primary, the oil will get in between the plates when the clutch is released and act like the oil in a automatic transmission torque converter. It will continue to drive just enough so that you cannot find neutral with the engine running.

Otherwise, you must make sure all clutch adjustments are correct. Loosen clutch cable all the way. Adjust clutch release adjuster behind derby cover, all the way in and back off one half to one complete turn, readjust cable for 1/8" freeplay.

Cannot get bike into neutral with engine running but can find neutral fine with engine off


Well, there is still a chance that what you have is a stretched cable, not a thin clutch pack. I'd at least try rigging a spacer inline with the cable to see if more cable travel helps! Good luck, let me know where you go from here, and I'll follow this question. THanks, TT
