Would like to know how to disconnect the clutch cable at the crankcase to allow removal of cover to access the front drive sprocket


Best way is to dissconect the clutch cable at the handlebar first, lossen off the adjuster on the handle bar and take the cable out of the lever. Then the cover should come straight off, should be no need to disconect the cable from the cover in order to get it off.

How does the clutch cable release work under the clutch release cover?


The clutch cable hooks to the screw assembly. The assembly is bolted to the case. When the clutch lever is pulled in, the center part of the assembly, ( a giant screw mechanism ), pushes on the clutch rod which then pushes on the outer clutch pressure plate to separate the clutch plates. The clutch springs supply the pressure to push the clutch lever outward thus engaging the clutch to move forward. I hope this answers your question. Please rate my answer. Thanks.
