Disconnect the clutch cable at the side case. Now try the lever. If it is easy then the problem is not the cable. A short handle does make it harder to pull the clutch in. Get a new lever and hook the cable back up to the side case. If the clutch lever is still hard to pull in, try changing the gearbox oil. Dirt and grit can build up and cause the clutch to become stiff. If an oil change doesn't fix the problem after riding for an hour, get back to me by posting a comment.

Remove the cable and try to release it by using WD-40..spray it in between the outer and inner cable starting from any side,hold it straight down wards,spray WD-40(carefull as the oil has to pass inbetween outer and inner cable!) until you see the oil dropping out from below (i.e. the other end of the cable), thn try to hold the outer cable and move the inner one, it should now travel freely.
Yes too if the cable is short thn theres no much play for it to work smoothly.
Hope this helps!

Thought my clutch was worn out....but after adjusting the cable, its not dragging itself. Need some explanation.


Hi, Teddy when your clutch wears out it will start to slip if you have excessive free play in your clutch cable/lever pulling in the clutch lever will not fully disengage the clutch plates and the end result is clutch drag when a clutch is properly adjusted the clutch plates completely disengage and there is no drag. Good luck and have a nice day.

When I pull my clutch in on my yfz 450 it's not engaging it has a brand new cable and lever an a Henson racing clutch on it can anyone help me out here?


When you PULL the clutch lever in, it DISENGAGES the clutch separating the engine drive to the gears.

There are adjustments on the clutch bearing itself and then in the cable. The cable should have about an eighth to a quarter inch of free play at the lever.

Check out these three videos.

Why can I hardly pull my clutch lever in on my 2008-Victory 8-Ball motorcycle


It sounds to me like the inside of the clutch cable itself has broken strands that is making in bind up. Disconnect the cable at the motor (transmission) now see how difficult it is to squeeze the clutch lever on the handle bar. If it is easy to pull back and forth than the clutch cable needs replacing.

I have a broken clutch bearing and icant find the spare


  1. Clutch Lever
    • As the clutch lever is operated over time, it gradually loses its grip on the clutch cable, weakening the clutch lever action until it barely moves the clutch plates. Maintain the clutch lever by ensuring the free play at the lever meets the specifications of the motorcycle's user manual, in which you will also find instructions on how to make this adjustment.
    Clutch Cable
    • Unlike the gradual onset of a clutch lever problem, the somewhat uncommon failure of a clutch cable is instantaneous. With little warning, the clutch lever goes completely slack and the clutch will be inoperable. Keeping a clutch cable well lubricated can prevent failure. However, in the event of a cable failure, a registered dealer should fit a replacement.

    Clutch Plates
    • Problems with the clutch mechanism itself normally manifest themselves in the gear change rather than in the applying and releasing of the clutch lever. Noise, chattering or slipping can be the result of misaligned or warped plates, leaks in hydraulic cables or bearings. Although more serious, if recognized early, these problems will be relatively inexpensive to repair.

Kids can't shift down because its too hard to turn??? help


You might be able to improve the situation a bit by getting a little oil inside the cable housing. Get some WD40 with the little tube on the nozzle. There might be several places where the cable enters a cable housing. There might also be a couple of places where the ***** cable has to slide through a groove, like under the pedals. The trouble is that you have to pull the cable hard enough to move the chain, and overcome the spring that is pulling on the other end of the cable, AND overcome the friction that increases the harder you pull on the cable. A little bit of dirt or corrosion increases that friction A LOT. AND there is one more source of friction you have to overcome - the shift lever itself has a kind of friction clutch built into it to keep the cable from slipping back and shifting to a higher gear by itself. You might be able to loosen that clutch a little, but there are hundreds of varieties. Some shifters have a ratchet built in so the clutch only adds friction in the direction you need it - if you have one these, loosening the clutch won't help.
Good luck!

I need to fit a clutch cable to my kawasaki z1b900 i need step by step instructions please


To remove the old cable first shorten the mid-cable adjuster to give as much free play as possible. If you need more free play screw in the adjuster at the clutch lever as much as possible and line up the slots so you can disconnect the cable from the clutch lever. Then remove the shift lever, and possibly the left footrest if needed to remove the front sprocket cover. Remove the cotter pin and disconnect the cable from the clutch release lever. Make a note of the routing of the old cable so you can replace it. Install the new cable with a new cotter pin at the lower end first, and route it the same as the old cable. To adjust the new cable, shorten the mid-cable adjuster as much as possible. At the clutch lever, turn the adjuster in and leave about 1/4" of threads showing between the locknut and the lever body. With the front sprocket cover still off, loosen the locknut on the clutch release lever and back the screw 3 or 4 turns. Turn the clutch adjusting screw in until it becomes hard to turn and then back it off 1/2 of a turn and tighten the locknut. Now lenghten the mid-cable adjuster until there is no free play and tighten the locknuts. Check that the lower end of the cable is fully seated in it's socket. At the clutch lever, turn the adjuster in so you have 1/16" free play, and tighten the locknut. Replace the front sproket cover and the shift lever and footrest.

Clutch bite is too far away from handlebar


There should be about 1/8" end play on the clutch handle. Adjust the cable at the handlebars where the cable goes into the clutch lever housing. Screw the adjuster inward until the end play is present. Some bikes have an adjuster at the gearbox where the cable hooks up.
