There are to different adjustments you can make. The most common adjustment made is on the clutch cable under the rubber boot real easy to figure out once you slide the boot off. The second is at your ramp and ball. I don't ride a RK so I don't know the exact method, but if you stop by your local library they might have a manuel that explains it in detail. My library does.

Last week my 2000 Road King Classic passed its MOT but the Neutral light stays on all the time and I cannot engage neutral at all via clutch/footpeg control. I have installed a brand new neutral...

The source of your problem is "a friend of mine". Sorry, but you will have to spend real money at a shop where they understand the problem and can fix this. I'm a certified HD tech. Paying someone like me to work on your bike is worth the money. Having an expert named "my buddy" doing it for free costs you nothing but grief.

How ti adjust the clutch on a2008 harley davidson ultra classic electric glide

To adjust the clutch, follow the clutch cable down to the frame front downtubes and find the cable adjuster. It's usually covered with a rubber bellows. Slide the bellows up or down exposing the adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and turn the cable adjuster in all the way getting as much slack in the cable as possible.

Then take the derby cover off the primary. In the center of the clutch assembly, you'll see an adjuster screw and a lock nut. Loosen the lock nut. Turn the adjuster screw inward until you feel a resistance. DO NOT FORCE THE SCREW OR YOU'LL BREAK YOUR INNER CLUTCH HUB. If you need to, back the screw out and turn it back in just till you feel the resistance several times to get the feel of it. Once you feel the resistance, back the screw off 1/2 turn and lock the lock nut down.

Then, go back to the cable adjuster and turn the adjuster barrel out until you have about 1/8 inch of freeplay in the cable. Tighten the lock nut and replace the rubber bellows. Replace the derby cover.

Good Luck

Is the tranny oil full? what kind of noise? Is there any grinding or other noises, or is it a whining sound? Does the clutch adjustment seem any differnt than it was prior to the noise? I would start with the throwout bearing, first.

My dad has a difficult time finding neutral on his 99 road king classic. is there a way to adjust?

I have a 99 FLHT. The issues are the same with finding neutral. This was because of a gear design change in the tranny to supposedly make the trans quieter.
So that said, do this, while in 1st, clutch pulled in, rev (blip throttle) motor slightly with upwards pressure on the shift lever. This blip breaks the friction between the plates in the clutch pack taking the pressure off the trans gears which helps get it into neutral.
BTW, this issue was present in my 1990 Softail as well, what worked then still works now.

If you have carb, it may need to be adjusted,
Or fuel injectors if you have them.

Valves may need to be adjusted
