Question about 2003 Suzuki GZ 125 Marauder

1 Answer

Old clutch cable snapped, tried replacing with new one, no pressure on the cable?

As I said, My clutch cable snapped out of the blue the other day, finally got a new cable from a local online parts store, and just fitted the new cable on, tightened all necessary bits, pulled my clutch lever in and it just stayed there, there's no resistance or pull-back? Any clues? Cheers Rhys

The first thing that comes to mind is that the new clutch cable is not the correct length (too long). Did you compare the old one with the new one? When you pull in the clutch lever you should be able to see the clutch release lever at the transmission move. If the lever is not moving then the cable is too long or needs adjustment.

You put the spring plate on first (after putting on all the clutch disks) with it being held in the compressed state. Then you insert the snap ring into the grooves in the center of the clutch. Then you can re leave the pressure of the compressed spring plate. The snap ring is used to keep the spring plate under pressure at all times in normal operation.

The clutch cable is fitted to the lever and the clutch arm on the top of the crank case beside the oil cap. Remove old cable (remove side fairing if you need to for access to cable end) slacken the new cable adjusters as much as possible fit to the clucth arm on the engine and fit to its seat route the cable the same as the old one up to the clutch lever, fit the cable end to the lever, hold the cable sleve tight pull the lever to strech the cable and drop into the lever seat, adjust the cable for 2mm of free play at the lever before the cable is pulled

Hey ill push the clutch pedal in then it will make a snap noise then i wont have any clutch then when it comes back it clicks theres a new clutch on it hasent been used in 7 years

i think either your clutch cable is seized and needs lubricating , or the pressure plate teeth on clutch plate housing have broken , maybe from sitting for so long or improper fitting years ago , maybe also your clutch plate is siezed against clutch plate disc . but i think one of the first 2 suggestions most likely..

i have seen cases where even after new clutch plate teeth have been broken from un correct adjustment of clutch pedal and cable when fitted , but i think you wont have much luck getting warranty after all that time !

i hope for you replacement of cable is answer .. good luck

Clutch cable, 1983 ford mustang

You've installed two cables, both of which broke. You made mention of a metal part bending, is this the fork? You may need to pull the bell housing to check the operation of the fork, throw-out bearing and pressure plate. This does not sound like a cable problem.
