To properly adjust the clutch, you must adjust not only the cable but the clutch as well.

Follow the cable down to the front down tubes of the frame. There you should see a rubber bellows. Slide the bellows up or down to allow you to get to the adjustment. Loosen the lock nut and adjust the cable as short as possible.

Now, remove the derby cover from your primary. In the center of the clutch assembly you'll see a screw that takes a hex key or allen wrench. Loosen the lock nut. Turn the screw inwards until it meets a resistance. Do this several times if necessary to get the feel of what you're doing. You want to go to you just feel resistance, not far enough to start releasing the clutch. Once you feel the resistance, back the screw out 1/2 to 1 full turn. Lock the locknut down and replace the derby cover.

At the cable, adjust the cable back out until you get about 1/8" (3mm) freeplay at the lever. I usually just set the freeplay at the adjuster. If you'll grab the upper part of the cable and pull, it will come out of the adjuster. Set this distance to 1/8". When finished, if you just take the slack out of the cable with the lever, don't pull it, just take the slack out, you'll have about the thickness of a nickle between the lever and the lever mount.

Good Luck, Steve

I have a 08 Harley super glide fxdx. the clutch will not engage


Well, the compensator should not be making noises so you might be well advised to look further into that. Give some history of the clutch problem. What was done with the bike just before the present problem??? Has the cable been properly adjusted?? Has anyone taken the clutch release cover or the cable out recently????

My bike wont shift in gear at all, even after i let go of my clucth lever


Hi, My guess is that the clutch needs adjustment. Try adjusting the clutch lever (tighter).
If that doesn't work try a new clutch cable. It maybe stretched.
The next thing would be oil or greece on the clutch it self. Only if you have done this should you attempt to clean and adjust clutch. Bring to bike shop for further repairs.

How to adjust clutch on a 2008 Harley Davidson Dyna Super Glide


To adjust the clutch on your Big Twin, follow the clutch cable from the lever towards the engine until you come to the cable adjuster. Usually, it is located somewhere around the front downtubes of the frame. Slide the protective cover up or down to gain access to the adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster barrel inwards to get a good amount of slack in the cable.

Next, take the derby cover off the primary cover. Inside, you'll see the clutch assembly with the clutch adjuster screw and lock nut in the center. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster screw inwards (clockwise) until you feel a resistance. You may want to back it off and then turn it back in several times to get the feel of what you're doing. Do not force the screw as you will start to release the clutch. Turn it in until you just feel the resistance. Then, back the screw back out one half turn and lock the lock nut down. Replace the derby cover.

Then go back to the cable adjuster and turn the adjuster barrel outwards until you have about an eight inch of free travel in the clutch cable. Squeeze the lever and let it go. Pull on the cable and the housing should come out of the adjuster by about an eight inch. Lock the lock nut down and replace the protective cover.

Good Luck

Ajusting clutch on my 1984 fxrs evo 5speed tran


Follow your clutch cable down until you find the rubber bellows that covers the clutch cable adjuster. Move the bellows up or down, break the lock nut loose, and adjust the adjuster inwards to get all the slack you can in the cable.

Remove the derby cover. In the middle of the clutch assembly, there is a screw and a locknut. Loosen the locknut and turn the screw inwards until you feel resistance. Do not force the screw as you'll be releasing the clutch if you do. Just until you feel the resistance. Then, back the screw back out 1/2 turn. Lock the locknut. Replace the derby cover.

Go back to the clutch cable adjuster and adjust it out until you have approximately 1/8" freeplay. Lock the locknut and replace the bellows cover.

Good Luck

Clutch adjustment 1993 harley davidson


To adjust the clutch on your Fat Boy, find the cable adjuster in the clutch cable. It's usually covered by a rubber bellows type cover. Slide the cover off the adjuster and loosen the locknut. Adjust the adjuster inwards to get as much slack in the cable as possible.

Now, remove the derby cover. Inside, you'll see the clutch assembly with the adjuster in the middle of it. Break the locknkut loose and adjust the center bolt inwards until you feel the resistance. Do not force the screw, turn it inwards until you feel the resistance. Then, back the screw back out 1/2 turn and lock the locknut down. Reinstall the derby cover.

Back at the cable adjuster, turn the adjuster back out until you only have about an 1/8" of freeplay in the cable. Lock the locknut on the adjuster and reposition the rubber boot.

Good Luck
Steve
