Use the locking screw and make sure it is tight - it shouldn't come loose unless you have too much play in the cable, in which case, change the cable.
The clutch adjuster is very simple for a reason - it works, if it keeps coming undone, it is either not done up tight enough (hand tight only) or it is the cable - it isn't rocket science.

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.

Clutch goes to floor but will not go in gear when in gear starts but starts moving with clutch still pushed to floor


Either the clutch needs replacing or the cable needs adjusting.
First thing is to try and adjust it if possible.
Get someone to press and release the clutch pedal while you are looking in the engine compartment and see if you can locate the actuation mechanism. You should see the clutch lever being moved back and forth. Once located and you see which way everything moves, get the person to stop pressing the pedal. On the cable that moves the lever should be 2 nuts (one of which is a locking nut that prevents the the one nearest the lever from moving). Loose of the locking nut off and start tightening the other one up. The person in the car may see the pedal start rising up. Tighten up and try the clutch again. Keep adjusting until it feels okay whilst driving. Finally tighten the lock nut down to the adjusting nut to prevent it from loosening off over time. If there is not enough adjustment possible it may require a new cable.

I had new clutch fitted 3 weeks ago now the gear stick has gone loose and I only have 3rd and 4th gear


Sounds like one of the rods between the gear lever and gearbox has become detached. One rod transmits the forward-backward motion, the other left - right, with the "natural" bias keeping the lever in the 3rd / 4th gear plane - hence why you've only got 3rd and 4th gear.

You should have some guarantee from the company that fitted the clutch so contact them to sort it out.

Why wont my S82 rider stop when I push in clutch


If it's cable actuated clutch, the cable may have snapped, which is also indicated by the clutch pedal dropping to the floor or becomes lighter to press. Check at the transmission bell housing, the clutch lever may have been broken or bent. If it uses hydraulic system, the slave pump may have been dislocated, at the transmission side.

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.

Clutch cable


Clutch dragging / slipping? you need to have free play in the cable the lever should not be tight up against lever holder there should be a loose gap.

Clutch pedal goes to floor and stays there .cable and all linkages seem to be working


well if it doesnt return then i'm assuming that the clutch isnt actually working on your car right? like you cant disengage the clutch correct? the only thing i've seen on these is that the cable can become disconnected right at the lever which applies the clutch. the clutch lever is right on the front side of the transmission and is easily seen with just the hood open. have somebody push the clutch down and see if the lever is moving. i can't imagine that it would be moving. if the lever does move and the clutch does not disengage then first i would attempt to adjust the clutch cable.

did this probelm just occur out of nowhere?

really the only explanation for this if the clutch lever is moving is that you have a very serious problem with the pressure plate. but i've never even heard of any probelm like this resulting from a bad pressure plate.

i would say that there about a 99% chance it's the a linkage probelm and 1% it's the pressure plate.

but yea if you answer those above questions i'd be able to give a better solution.

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.
