How to adjust clutch cable

I don't think there is an adjustment at the clutch handle.If your trying to bleed the clutch (being hydraulic) it is on the side of the engine left side as your sitting on the bike / get a hose and a bottle and attach to the bleeder valve on the clutch slave cylinder / remove clutch reservoir cover and have a towel covering all and any paint (be very careful brake fluid will eat paint if left on the paint for too long) attach hose to bleeder valve and the other end of the hose in the bottle/ loosen the valve at this point let gravity do the work/ DO NOT LET THE RESERVOIR GET LOW ON FLUID IF AIR GETS IN THE LINE IT IS VERY HARD TO REMOVE. If your feeling bold you can pull in the clutch handle and close the valve then let go of the handle and reopen the valve pull the clutch handle and close the valve repeat repeat and so on until you have flushed about a 12 oz bottle of fluid through the system, when done close all valve and top off fluid to proper level ( should be a high level mark on the reservoir) reinstall cap and check lever feel . If it is a cable there should be an adjustment in the cable itself or on the engine. the adjustment should be a 10mm or 12mm sized wrench loosen and lengthen the cable to take any slack, you can also adjust the clutch lever this way. Let me know if this helps or if there is a separate concern.

Can't get the clutch on a suzuki 800 intruder to hold pressure

Oil should be 10W40 SF or SG grade. Anything else will cause the clutch to slip. There must be freeplay on the clutch cable (0.4-0.6in). Adjust handle bar clutch lever screw all the way out then adjust at gearbox end and revert to handle bar adjustment for fine adjustments. If this does not solve the problem take the clutch apart and measure driven plate thickness (3.12in minimum for the 1st plate and 2.62in minimum for the others)
Measure clutch spring free length. There are 2 sets (4 springs each). 0.97in minimum and 0.92in minimum respectively.
A slipping clutch is caused by incorrect friction, that is incorrect oil or insufficient pressure. Pressure is supplied by the springs on the discs and driven plates.
If the discs, driven plates or bucket is worn it will cause slippage.
If you pull in the clutch and it disengages but starts to re- engage after a short period you will need to replace the clutch master cylinder seals.

Broken hydraulic clutch handle for a 2008 Victory Vegas Low motorcycle. How do you replace the handle?

You get a crescent wrench and a standard screw driver. Hold the nut underneath and use the screw driver to take the bolt out. Then you take that broken clutch lever to a dealer .. purchase one just like it and reverse the steps. It's QUITE easy.

How can i tell if the fan clutch on my 05 titan has gone bad

* Fan operation can be checked by spinning the fan by hand.
* A noticeable wobble or any blade that is not in the same plane as the rest indicates that replacement is in order. The fan can also be checked by removing it and laying it on a flat surface. If it is straight, all the blades should touch the surface. Never attempt to straighten a damaged cooling fan. Bending it back into shape might seem easier (and cheaper) than replacing it, but doing so is risky. Whenever metal is bent, it is weakened.
* Fan clutches use a fluid-filled chamber (usually silicone) to turn the fan. Obviously, loss of the drive fluid will render the fan useless.
* One of the simplest checks is to visually inspect the fan clutch for signs of fluid loss.
* Oily streaks radiating outward from the hub shaft mean fluid has leaked out past the bearing seal.
* Most fan clutches offer a slight amount of resistance if turned by hand when the engine is cold. They offer drag when the engine is hot. If the fan freewheels easily hot or cold, replace the clutch.
* Another check that should be made is to push the tip of a fan blade in and out. Any visible looseness in the shaft bearing means the fan clutch should be replaced.
* Fan blades are balanced at the time of manufacture but can be bent if handled carelessly.
* Likewise, fan clutches are machined very accurately to run true. However, rough handling at the time of pump replacement causes nicks and dents on the mounting faces. This can cause the fan blade to be installed crookedly. Serious trouble might follow soon after the car is back in service.
* Therefore, handle fan clutches and blades with care and be sure to file away any nicks, burrs, or dents someone else might have caused. Obviously, if any fins have been broken off the fan clutch, it must be replaced.
