Question about 2002 Harley Davidson XLH Sportster 883 Hugger
While pulling out from a stop, the engine seems to rev. It's like the bike is slipping out of gear or the clutch is slipping. The bike has 53,000 miles on it now.
There are two clutch adjustments you can make. The easiest is under the rubber boot on your clutch cable, adjust that so you only have about an eigth of an inch of play on the lever. If that doesn't fix it the next adjustment is under the ball and ramp, lossen the clutch cable completely, remove the derby cover, disconnect the clutch cable from the ball and ramp then remove ball and ramp. You should now see a post with a slot in it, take a screw driver and snug it down then back it off about a quarter turn. Now just reassemble everything. If you still have the slipping problem you need a new clutch basket.
