You adjust the clutch behind the clutch inspection (derby) cover on the left side. The cable enters the clutch release housing on the right side. Describe the problem better.

SOURCE: oil leaking from clutch push lever

Sounds like a worn seal. If you remove the cover and knock out the seal any atv dealer should be able to replace it.

SOURCE: Was wondering if the clutch

Yes, your clutch is adjustable. Follow your clutch cable downwards and you'll find a rubber bellows type cover over the cable adjuster. Slide the cover up or down to gain access to the adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster inward to get as much slack in the cable as you can.

Now, go down to the primary cover and remove the derby cover's five bolts and remove the cover. Inside you'll see the clutch assembly with the adjuster in the center. Loosen the large nut and turn the adjuster bolt inwards until you feel resistance. Do not force the screw, turn it until you feel resistance. Then, back the screw back out 1/2 turn. Lock the lock nut down and replace the derby cover.

Go back to the cable adjuster and adjust the adjuster outwards until you have about 1/8" freeplay at the clutch lever. Tighthen the lock nut and replace the bellows cover.

Good Luck

SOURCE: How do i adjust the clutch on my 2004 Harley Davidson Heritage Softail

Try this:

Loosen clutch cable all the way (so you don't get a false setting).
Loosen clutch push rod adjuster (in center of pressure plate).
Turn adjuster in until it JUST touches.
Back off 1/2 to 1 turn and tighten locknut.

Be careful when tightening locknut that the adjuster doesn't turn also, decreasing play.

Readjust clutch cable, leaving 1/16" to 1/8" slack.

Why trans fluid is going up clutch cable on 2001 heritage softtail


Look for the breather hose for the transmission. It may be plugged causing pressure to build up in the transmission and forcing the oil to move up the clutch cable. The hose should be located on the left side top of the transmission and comes out just in front of the swing arm on the left side.

This could mean that you need to adjust the clutch or you may have too much oil in the primary chain case. First the easy thing to check. Take the derby cover off the primary and check the level of the oil with the bike standing straight up. With the side car, that should be no problem. The oil level should be just up to the bottom of the outer clutch drum. That's the bright aluminum "ring" around the clutch assembly. Too much oil and it gets between the clutch plates and acts like the transmission fluid in a torque converter in an automobile. Don't overfill your primary chaincase.

If you want to adjust the clutch, find the clutch cable adjuster, slide the rubber boot up or down to gain access to the adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster barrel inwards to get a good bit of slack in the cable. At the derby cover, which should still be off, you'll see and adjuster in the center of the clutch assembly. Loosen the lock nut and turn the center adjuster screw inwards until you feel a resistance. Do not force the screw, just until you feel the resistance. If you need to, turn the screw back out and then in again until you get the feel of what you're doing. Once you've got the screw turned in until you feel the resistance, back the screw back out 1/2 turn and lock the locknut down. Put the derby cover back on. Go back to the cable adjuster and turn the adjuster barrel outwards until you've got about 1/8 inch of slack in the cable. Lock the lock nut down and replace the protective boot.

Good Luck

How to stop oil leak from clutch cable


If the oil is leaking out of the clutch cable, you must replace the clutch cable. The cable has a seal in the end of it that is supposed to keep the oil from getting into the cable. If the seal is bad, there is no way to dix it and the cable has to be replaced. If the oil is leaking where the cable goes into the transmission, there is an o-ring aound the threaded end of the cable that could be bad. It depends on whether the oil is coming out of the cable or around the cable.

Good Luck

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 do i tighten up the slack in my clutch lever


Follow the clutch cable down until you find a rubber bellows type cover. Move the cover up or down to expose the clutch cable adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster inwards to get plenty of slack in the cable.

Now, remove the derby cover on your primary cover. In the middle of the clutch assembly, you'll see a screw and a lock nut. Loosen the lock nut and turn the screw inwards until you feel a resistance. Do no force the screw. When you feel the resistance, stop and back the screw out about 1/2 turn. Lock the locknut down and replace the derby cover.

Now, go back to the cable adjuster and turn it outwards until you have about 1/8" freeplay in the hand lever. Lock the locknut down and replace the bellows cover.

Good Luck

There is a clutch adjustment. You can adjust it on the cable under the black boot is an adjster. You can also adjust it at ball and ramp. Unless you've been slipping the clutch a lot, I don't believe you need to redo the basket.
