Question about 2006 Harley Davidson XL 883L Sportster
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi Anonymous, grab your self some silicone spray or brake kleen and squirt a little shot into the rubber boot that covers the adjuster in the cable, this makes moving that boot up and out of the way much easier. With a 1/2" and 9/16" wrench loosen and back off jam nut, screw the adjuster in to obtain tons of freeplay at the clutch lever. Remove the left footrest. Remove the 4 torx screws holding the clutch inspection cover, remove cover slowly as not to desturb the large quad ring. Slide spring with attached hex lock plate from the flats of the adjusting screw. Turn adjusting screw counterclockwise untill resistance is felt then clockwise 1/4 turn. Put the lockplate, spring and cover back on and torque screws to 10 ft lbs. Replace foot rest and torque screws to 20 ft lbs. Next back out cable adjuster untill, by pulling the clutch lever with one hand and pulling on the cable with the other, you get 1/16" to 1/8" free play. Tighten the jam nut on the cable adjuster, slide the boot back down and your good to go. Good luck
