Mostley the clutch adjustment should be able to be done on the clutch cable. If that does not work, then you need to be looking at taking the clutch apart. When in storage for a long time, the clutch plates can become stuck together.

HOW CAN I TELL IF I ADJUSTED MY CLUTCH CORRECTLY ON 2005 HARLEY SPORTSTER


Hi John, the correct clutch adjustment procedure is as follows: Loosen the jam nut on the clutch cable adjuster and screw the adjuster in about 1/2 " this should give you tons of free play at the clutch lever. Remove the the left footrest, the clutch inspection cover and slide the spring and lockplate off of the adjusting screw. Turn adjusting screw counterclockwise untill resistance is felt then clockwise 1/4 turn replace lockplate and spring, check for proper fluid level in primary and button back up. Back out the clutch cable adjuster untill you get 1/16" to 1/8" freeplay while pulling the clutch lever with your left hand and the clutch cable in the oppisite driction with your right hand. Tighten jam nut and your good to go. Good luck

2006 Harley Electra-Glide, Twin cam 88, six speed tranny slipping/popping gears when under acceleration. Multiple pops. Tried adjusting clutch and it got worse. Mainly in lower gears but does it...


If your clutch is not slipping check your shift linkage joints. Rocking the bike lets you know your tranny has gears but the shifter pawl may need adjustment

How do i adjust neutral on my harley davidson 5 speed?


Adjust your clutch cable. With the bike at room temp (cold,unridden that day) The cable adjustment will require one each 1/2 in. wrench and 1 each 9/16 in. wrench(the cable adjuster is under the rubber boot located between the front frame downtubes) to give 1.6 to 3.2 mm (1/16 to 1/8 in.) free play at the clutch lever when you pull on the cable at the clutch lever. I suggest you obtain a H-D service manual for your year & model. It will be the best $50 you ever spent

How do i change my clutch and plates


Harley changed their clutch in 1998 and I don't think they've changed it since. To change the plates in your clutch:

First, disconnect your battery, Remove the floorboard on the primary side and drain the oil out of the primary. Remove the outer primary cover. Remove the six screws in the clutch assembly and remove the clutch plates and steel plates. Soak your new clutch plates in oil overnight. Replace the old parts with the new parts in the exact same order. Rinstall the bolts using Loctite 242 (medium strength blue) and torque the bolts to about 20 foot pounds. Adjust the clutch according to factory specs and reinstall the outer primary cover. Add oil and reconnect the battery. Put the floor board back on and you're ready to ride.

Ride Safe.

1973 xlh 1000 ironhead clutch slips.removed primary cover and nut's tightend to about a 1/4 on the stud's just need to no if there is a filler gap or how tight or loose these 6 nut's should be.


All six nuts should be tightened all the way against the plate. Now, if the clutch continues to slip, the fiber discs could be worn to the point to where the Sleeves on the studs are too long. You can either get shorter sleeves or you can purchase new fiber disc. Make sure the clutch is adjusted properly. The Ironheads have a very touchy clutch adjustment. Most of the time, they don't want to release all the way.
