SOURCE: how do i adjusts my clutch cable

To properly adjust the clutch, you must adjust not only the cable but the clutch as well.

Follow the cable down to the front down tubes of the frame. There you should see a rubber bellows. Slide the bellows up or down to allow you to get to the adjustment. Loosen the lock nut and adjust the cable as short as possible.

Now, remove the derby cover from your primary. In the center of the clutch assembly you'll see a screw that takes a hex key or allen wrench. Loosen the lock nut. Turn the screw inwards until it meets a resistance. Do this several times if necessary to get the feel of what you're doing. You want to go to you just feel resistance, not far enough to start releasing the clutch. Once you feel the resistance, back the screw out 1/2 to 1 full turn. Lock the locknut down and replace the derby cover.

At the cable, adjust the cable back out until you get about 1/8" (3mm) freeplay at the lever. I usually just set the freeplay at the adjuster. If you'll grab the upper part of the cable and pull, it will come out of the adjuster. Set this distance to 1/8". When finished, if you just take the slack out of the cable with the lever, don't pull it, just take the slack out, you'll have about the thickness of a nickle between the lever and the lever mount.

Good Luck, Steve

SOURCE: Knock when starting up FXDC Super Glyde Custom

What you are hearing is the compensator sprocket bottoming out upon start-up. Inside your primary there is a dampening device before power is ransfered to the clutch. It is designed to give you a smoother power delivery when you let out the clutch. So its not so "grabby". Ever since 2006 when H-D first introduced the cruize dive this has been a common complaint. In truth, this noise on start-up IS normal. Higher octne fuel will not help in any way.It will only cost more.

SOURCE: how to adjust clutch on a 2008 Harley Davidson

To adjust the clutch on your Big Twin, follow the clutch cable from the lever towards the engine until you come to the cable adjuster. Usually, it is located somewhere around the front downtubes of the frame. Slide the protective cover up or down to gain access to the adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster barrel inwards to get a good amount of slack in the cable.

Next, take the derby cover off the primary cover. Inside, you'll see the clutch assembly with the clutch adjuster screw and lock nut in the center. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster screw inwards (clockwise) until you feel a resistance. You may want to back it off and then turn it back in several times to get the feel of what you're doing. Do not force the screw as you will start to release the clutch. Turn it in until you just feel the resistance. Then, back the screw back out one half turn and lock the lock nut down. Replace the derby cover.

Then go back to the cable adjuster and turn the adjuster barrel outwards until you have about an eight inch of free travel in the clutch cable. Squeeze the lever and let it go. Pull on the cable and the housing should come out of the adjuster by about an eight inch. Lock the lock nut down and replace the protective cover.

Good Luck

No brake lights or turn signals on 2007 harley super dyna glide

Hi Anonymous, always check fuses and bulbs first, you could have a faulty turn signal module or a bad turn signal button/switch, remove it from the switch housing and check for continuity, check your wiring and connections from the turn signal switch to the turn signal module with a testlite. Make sure all wires are not worn or pinched and connector pins are not corroded, broken, or loose.
