Yeah the cable needs to be taken lose at the throttle lever on the engine and then remove the grip and the cable will have to be reapplied to the new grip in its groove and then reattach it at the engine

1986 HARLEY DAVIDSON sporster right directional working, left directional makes headlight flash

Sorry but my expertise and knowledge does not go back that far, but ti sounds like a short, possibly, likely, in the left handlebar switch housing. Has anyone been working in that area or with the clutch perch or the handlebars?? If you get an answer please post it as a comment when you find it. Thanks

How do i change the clutch cable on 1987 fxlr

To change the clutch cable, find the clutch cable adjuster and slide the cover up or down so you can get to the adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster barrel inwards to get as much slack in the cable as possible. Disconnect the cable at the handlebar lever. Drain the oil out of the transmission. Remove the bolts that hold the chrome endcap, clutch release mechanism cover, from the transmission. Look inside the transmission end cover and disconnect the clutch cable from the release mechanism. Note how the "hook" is positioned holding the cable to the release mechanism. Unscrew the clutch cable end from the end cover. While you are in this area, replace the clutch throw out bearing and retainer clip. Take note of the routing of the cable from the handlebar to the transmission. Replace the cable along with a new O-ring on the transmission end of the cable and install a new gasket. Torque the bolts to 100 inch pounds. Adjust the cable adjuster until you have about an 1/8" freeplay at the handlebar grip.

Good Luck

Need instructions on how to install clutch cables on a 02 fxst

First, you have to drain the oil from the transmission by removing the plug located just below the chrome plated clutch release mechanism on the right side of the transmission. Then, take the bolts out of the clutch release mechanism and pull it away from the transmission. Disconnect the link from the clutch release ramp and the clutch lever at the handlebars. Unscrew the clutch cable from the clutch release mechanism. Reinstall the clutch cable in reverse of the way you took the old one out. Refill the transmission with 20-24 ounces of transmission lube.

Good Luck

Need to know where clutch cable runs from tranny to fairring. need diagram

I don't think I've ever seen a diagram of the routing of the clutch cable. The cable comes from the left handlebar to the frame. It runs down the left side of the frame, between the front engine mount on the frame and the engine. Along the lower frame tube on the right side of the bike and up to the bottom of the chrome clutch release housing on the right side of the transmission. I hope this helps. Good luck

I am changing the handlebars to 16" ape hangers, need the instrucitons to change the clutch cable and the throtle/idle cables

To change the throttle/idle cables, first you need to remove the fuel tanks so you can get to the carb/throttle body. Loosen the adjusters at the throttle grip on the handlebars. Remove the idle cable first and the remove the throttle cable from the carb/throttle body. Then take the two bolts out of the throttle grip housing halves and carefully seperate them. Remove the old cables from the twist grip. Reinstall new cables in the reverse procedure. Before starting the bike, make absolutely sure that the throttle cables work like they're supposed to and the carb/throttle body will close completely.

To remove the clutch cable, remove exhaust system or whatever might be in the way on the right side of the bike. You need to remove the right side transmission cover. Drain the transmission oil. Remove the chrome right side transmission cover. Disconnect the clutch cable from the clutch release mechanism. Screw the end of the clutch cable out of the cover and take the cable loose from the clutch lever on the handlebars. Reinstall in reverse order making sure you install a new O-ring on the cable at the transmission cover. Replace cover and refill transmission with oil. Reinstall anything else you had to take off.
