You need to adjust it so that it just disengages. The book is a good guide but every bike is a little bit different. If it dosen't completely disengage you will trash your trans quick.

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.

Where is slave cylinder located on the motor

The slave cylinder, which is present only on manual transmission automobiles, is located at the transmission bell housing, where it provides the hydraulic pressure-to-mechanical pressure conversion that actuates the clutch fork to disengage the clutch plate from the pressure plate.

Ktm 125 sx the clutch wont engage and disengage

You will need to slightly loosen the line where it goes into the master cylinder,...then squeeze the lever and hold it in...fluid should come out. While holding lever in,re-tighten bolt. You should get a lil bit of lever feel now. Making sure there is fluid in the resrvoir,...squeeze lever multiple times,and hold it in,....loosen the banjo bolt again,...slowly,..untill fluid rushes out. Then,..while holding lever in,retighten banjo bolt again. Check fluid,...then pump the lever multiple times again,and you should be getting some good lever feel now. After this,you may need to bleed the air out at the bleeder a couple times till alll the air is out.

Clutch feels firm but will shift hard in any gear, If i sit to long with the clutch in and try to put it in gear i will have to let it out and push it back in quickly to get it in to first gear or while...

It could be a faulty clutch master cylinder, there is a valve in the master cylinder that traps the fluid to be displaced to the slave cylinder. If this valve is not trapping the fluid or if the rod connecting the clutch pedal to the master is not properly adjusted, the clutch wont fully disengage, causing the symtoms you've discribed.

Theres a rod in the bottom of my yz250f enegine 2004 wtf is it?

You are probably refering to the clutch push rod. When the clutch lever is pulled in it moves the clutch arm on the outside of the caseing. This actuates the clutch push lever to push the rod into the center case. The internal end of the rod actually pushes the clutch apart to disengage the gears from the crankshaft. Without the rod there would be no clutch action.

Cub model 1170 drive wont disengage

there should be a pulley somewhere in the belt assembly that lifts up ti allow slack in the belt. your problem sounds to me like you have messed something on the clutch up and the pulley isn't lifting up to let there be some slack in the belt to disengage the drive.
