More info...........you adjusted what cable?
idle and clutch have nothing in common.

Always have 2 - 5 mm slack in your cables, never take out all the slack!

too little slack on throttle could cause idle problems.
too little slack on clutch could cause premature clutch failure.
too little slack on decompressor could cause loss of compression
too little slack in the hot start cable could cause a lean condition causing major engine problems from running too lean.

How do I adjust the clutch on a 1981 Yamaha xj650 maxim


On the clutch perch there should be a screw type adjuster that the cable sits in. You want to leave about a 1/2 inch of free play in the lever to compensate for the expansion and contraction of the plates.

You do not adjust clutch cables, you only have one and you need about 1/8 inch freeplay at the clutch lever/ perch. You need to adjust the clutch inside the primary cover. If you have fluid more than just touching the bottom of the clutch diaphragm spring you can also have a dragging clutch.

Clutch wont go into neutral when engine is on


Try adjusting the clutch. Sounds like it won't fully disengage when the clutch is pulled in. Adjust the cable first. Make sure there is about the thickness of a quarter between the clutch cable and the perch. If it doesn't work then try adjusting it the same down at the bottom. Make sure you fully collapse the clutch cable if doing the adjustment down below first. Then once the bottom is adjusted, re adjust the cable by the perch. If that doesn't cure your problem then you need to go into the clutch itself.

How do you replace clutch on kawasaki zzz 600?


* Turn the clutch adjustment knob all the in allowing slack in the cable.
* Remove the clutch lever from the perch by removing the pivot bolt. (you will find that after you remove the pivot bolt)
* Move the tip of the clutch opposite of normal operation until it is pointing strait forward, it puts the lever in position to release the cable.

The perch removal and replacement is strait forward. Just put it back together the opposite way and adjust the free-play in you clutch as the manual states.

1979 Harley Davidson FXS Low Rider clutch adjustment


Hi, Michael a proper clutch adjustment for big twins starts by squirting some silicone spray or Brake Kleen into the top of the rubber boot on the clutch cable and sliding it back exposing the cable adjuster. Loosen the jam nut and turn the adjusting screw all the way in so your clutch lever has excessive slop. Remove the Derby cover, loosen the jam nut on the clutch pack adjuster screw and screw it in until light resistance is felt against the clutch rod then back the adjusting screw out 3/4 of a turn and tighten the jam nut.
Check primary fluid level and replace Derby cover unless you are running an early model "Dry Clutch" leave the Derby cover off. Go back to the clutch cable adjuster and back it out until there is 1/8" free play between the clutch lever and the bracket perch. This is correctly accomplished by pulling the clutch cable end outward with your right hand and pulling the clutch lever in with your left hand and modest pressure on both hands to eyeball the free play. Tighten cable adjuster jam nut and slide rubber boot back to its original position.
On Dry Clutch Models you need to square the pressure plate by adjusting the 3 stud nuts on the outside of the pressure plate so that when the clutch lever is pulled in the pressure plate shoots "STRAIGHT" out and disengages evenly.
On Sportster models, the procedure is the same except the clutch cable adjuster screws directly into the primary cover with a jam nut.

Having trouble changing the clutch lever from old to new one , not sure how to get clutch cable out of handle, 1983 wide glide, I don't want to start somthing and end up costing shop and mechanic time....


First - find the adjuster. It's down on the front frame tube - it's usually in a rubber boot but being an 83 the boot maybe missing. Adjust the barrels of the cable adjuster together to effectively shorten the cable sheath which will put slack in the cable. Then, remove the pivot of the clutch lever and then remove the lever from the perch. You will see how the cable end is held to the lever - remove that pin and the cable will come off the lever. Put the new lever on (use grease at the pivots after you clean everything up) and then adjust the cable so that you have maybe 1/2" of free play measured at the end of the lever and then lock down the adjuster and you're done! It's a pretty easy task once you get through the first time! Goooood luck - I hope this is the info you were looking for!

I dont know if my clutch is bad or if my clutch chord is bad in my 1983 suzuki GS 650 L


I am assuming that the engine races on up-shifts rather than getting a good, positive clutch hook-up, so checking the following items would be a good place to start. Since the GS650 uses a rack and pinion style release, it has no true clutch "adjustment" except for cable and linkage play. First check that there is adequate free-play in the lever and cable- does clutch tension pull the lever hard against the perch bracket or is there some free-play? If there is play, also check that the lever pivots freely in the perch, since corrosion can often cause the lever to bind. If this checks out, you will need to determine if the release cable is binding. You will need to spin the cable adjuster on the lever perch inward to add as much play as possible, then disconnect the cable at both ends. Removing the lever pivot bolt is often the easiest method. Once both ends are disconnected, you should be able to pull the cable back and forth in the sheathing quite easily. If not, I recommend lubrication first (Use a commercially available cable lubricating tool from Bike Bandit- they are inexpensive and last a lifetime) or replacement if it is binding/dragging. I make it a practice to lubricate new cables prior to installation as well, since you will find operation and longevity improved. Last but not least, check the actuator lever on the clutch cover to insure that it rotates freely in the cover. Reinstall the cable and adjust, making sure that there is play. If this doesn't cure your clutch slippage issue, it will be time to replace your clutch.

HI THIS IS BECAUSE THE CLUTCH IS NOT RELEASING FULLY, CHECK THE SIMPLE THINGS FIRST, CABLE AND CLUTCH WORM FREE PLAY YOU MUST HAVE AT LEAST 3 MM FREE PLAY AT THE CABLE AND THE WORM TO PUSHROD CLEARENCE SHOULD HAVE SOME PLAY ALSO. IT IS MORE LIKELY THAT THE OUTER CLUTCH PLATE IS NOT FITTED CORECTLY, REMOVE THE CLUTCH COVER WHEN YOU ARE SURE YOU HAVE CHECKED THE ABOVE REMOVE THE CLUTCH COVER AGAIN AND CHECK TO SEE IF WHEN YOU PUSH THE BIKE IN GEAR IF THE CENTRE OF THE CLUTCH ROTATES AND THE OUTER DOESN,T, IF THIS IS THE CASE YOU WILL HAVE TO REMOVE THE OUTER COVER AND SPRINGS AND CHECK IT IS LOCATED CORECTLY, WHEN YOU REFIT IT BEFORE REPLACING THE SPRINGS BOLTS, LOOSLY HOLD THE COVER WITH 1 HAND AND GENTLY PULL THE CLUTCH LEVER WITH THE OTHER, YOU SHOULD HAVE A SMALL AMOUNT OF MOVMENT IN THE LEVER BEFORE YOU FEEL THE PUSHROD &PLATE CONTACT, DID YOU HAVE TO RE ADJUST THE CLUTCH CABEE AFTER YOU REBUILT IT THIS MAY ALSO SUGEST THE OUTER PLATE IS NOT FITTED CORECTLY, CHECK THIS HOPE YOU FIND YOUR PROBLEM, PAUL

Engine cuts out when put into gear


Does it lurch forward a little? If so, First thing to check is the cable adjustment. As you pull on the clutch lever, you should be able to feel a little free play before the lever actually starts pulling the cable. You should have approximatley an 1/8 inch gap between the lever and the perch when lever engages the clutch.

If it's not the clutch dragging, check for a faulty kickstand switch.

Try to adjust the play in the cable at the clutch perch, leaving play in the cable. If that is ok, then check the push rod adjustment if it has one. Bottom out the push rod screw and thebn back it off 1/4- 1/2 turn out. Chaz Moto DC
