Loosen clutch cable adjuster locknut and the front of the outer primary cover and turn the cable adjuster inwards until a large amount of free play at the hand lever on the handlebar is recognized.

Remove the clutch adjuster access plug, Loosen the adjuster locknut and turn the screw inwards until it becomes harder to turn (starts to release the clutch) and continue turning 2 more turns to be sure clutch is disengaged.

Adjust all the free play out of the clutch cable by turning the cable adjuster in the front of the outer primary outwards. Do not put any tension on the cable, just adjust all the freeplay out of the cable and tighten locknut on the primary cover.

Now, Back off the adjuster screw at the release mechanism until the clutch is engaged and the screw turns freely. Then turn inwards until it just bumps and then back off 1/8 to 1/4 turn. Locknut the locknut down and install the access plug. There should be about a 1/16" free play at the hand lever.

good Luck
Steve

6. Fuel level (float chamber) too low.
7. Restriccted fuel supply passages.
8. Plugged jets or passages.

What would cause a clutch not 2 engage on a 19988 harley sporster.put new chrome primary cover on an clutch doesn't work.


U probably just didn't adjust the cluch cable correctly after you feed it in to the notch that I clips into their is a spring and a nut used to adjust the cable tension if it's adjusted to far eat her way it can slip or not let it clutch at all leaving it stuck in gear try turning the slot screw to change tension on the basket

My1980 harleydavidson sporster,s clutch is hard to pull in


Have you lubricated the cable?
The main reason is a broken strand of bowden cable and it snaggs the outer cover.
Replace the cable in that case.

I am sorry for the quality of documents but the size is restricted too much.
Hope it helps.
