Question about 2008 Harley Davidson FLHX Street Glide
Use a T-27 with a small ratchet and use pressure to get the derby cover
off the first time. If you try and take any kind of short cut you will
have a bad day.
Adjust only when totally cold
When adjusting the clutch, back of the adjusting screw out and then spin back to tighten. You can really feel it when the adjustment screw seats. As soon as you feel that little bit of pressure, stop! Just rotate a half turn back, and you should be right on the money.
The clutch cable will stretch over time, but all you have to do is take up the slack. Just tighten it up until the clutch lever has a nickel's worth of slack in it. If it's too tight the clutch might not fully engage. You do not have to adjust the clutch if you are just taking up slack on the lever.
These tasks take very little time, even for a first timer. Again, don't over think it. Trust me, I know it's easy to do.
Hope this helps.
