Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FLTR-FLTRI Road Glide
You must "unadjust" the cable first. Roll the rubber boot back on the clutch cable. Break the lock nut loose and adjust the cable to as short as you can. Then, remove the derby cover. Have the bike sitting as straight up as can safely (you don't want the bike to fall over) so primary oil doesn't run out. In the middle of the clutch assembly there is a screw with a lock nut on it. Break the lock nut loose. Turn the screw inwards until you feel resistance. You don't want to start releasing the clutch, just until you feel firm resistance. I usually back the screw off and back in several times to get a good feel of whats going on. Then with the screw in against the resistance, back off 1/2 to 1 complete turn. Lock the lock nut down. Then adjust the cable out until you get an freeplay of about the thickness of a nickle at the handlebar clutch lever. Replace the derby cover on the primary and try the clutch to make sure it's like you want it. You may have to tweak the adjuster on the cable to get it to your liking. Just make sure you have some freeplay in the lever when finished. If not, your throwout bearing in the tranny won't last long. While you're at it, check you transmission oil level.
