Question about 2003 kawasaki KX 250
Recently snapped clutch lever off my bike put new one on cable has 2 much play tried adjustin to no avail
Ok, three different possibilities here. first, you replaced your broken lever with a lever that has the hole for the cable end a little closer to the perch, and you dont have enough range of adjustment to tighten up the cable. this is probably the least likely scenario, since you need a very signifigant change in the lever or perch assembly to throw your adjustment off that far.
second, your cable may have frayed or just broke. follow the clutch cable all the way to the engine, and keep an eye on the arm that it attatches to. it should move when you pull the lever. if theres no movement, then your cables broken or frayed.
if you can see that the cable is pulling on that arm, then your problem may be internal. also less likely though. but as a last resort, if you have the mechanical knowledge, then check behind the pressure plate for anything that may have broken in the assembly that pushes the pressure plate outwards. IM not too familiar with the kawasaki's design, but there may also be an adjustment screw and locknut right in the center of the pressure plate. tightening up just a little usually solves this isssue.
