Question about 2005 Harley Davidson FLHTC - FLHTCI Electra Glide classic
Ok, to adjust your clutch cable, follow your cable down to the bellows that covers your cable adjuster. Slide the adjuster up or down to gain access to the adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster inwards as far as it will go.
Now, remove your derby cover. You'll see screw and locknut in the center of the clutch assembly. Loosen the locknut and turn the center bolt inwards until you feel a resistance. Do not force the bolt as you'll be releasing the clutch. Back off and do this several times until you get the feel of what you're doing. Turn it inwards until you feel the resistance. Once you feel this stop and back up about 1/2 turn or so. The book says 1/2 to 1 full turn but I've had best luck at 1/2 turn. Lock the locknut down and reinstall the derby cover.
Now, at the cable adjuster, turn the adjuster screw outwards until you have about an 1/8" freeplay at the clutch lever. Lock the locknut. Before you slide the boot back over the adjuster, put some oil or something on the adjuster to keep it from corroding.
