Yes, your clutch is adjustable. Follow your clutch cable downwards and you'll find a rubber bellows type cover over the cable adjuster. Slide the cover up or down to gain access to the adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster inward to get as much slack in the cable as you can.

Now, go down to the primary cover and remove the derby cover's five bolts and remove the cover. Inside you'll see the clutch assembly with the adjuster in the center. Loosen the large nut and turn the adjuster bolt inwards until you feel resistance. Do not force the screw, turn it until you feel resistance. Then, back the screw back out 1/2 turn. Lock the lock nut down and replace the derby cover.

Go back to the cable adjuster and adjust the adjuster outwards until you have about 1/8" freeplay at the clutch lever. Tighthen the lock nut and replace the bellows cover.

Good Luck

You adjust the clutch behind the clutch inspection (derby) cover on the left side. The cable enters the clutch release housing on the right side. Describe the problem better.

How do i adjust the clutch on my 2004 Harley Davidson Heritage Softail

Try this:

Loosen clutch cable all the way (so you don't get a false setting).
Loosen clutch push rod adjuster (in center of pressure plate).
Turn adjuster in until it JUST touches.
Back off 1/2 to 1 turn and tighten locknut.

Be careful when tightening locknut that the adjuster doesn't turn also, decreasing play.

Readjust clutch cable, leaving 1/16" to 1/8" slack.

I just bought a used 2009 Heritage Classic. I currently have a 2004 Deuce. The Deuce has V&H pipes and the Heritage has some slip on pipes. I hear a whirling sound out of the Heritage and not out...

It could be the transmission that you're hearing. Harley changed the way they cut the gears in the '06 models I think. I'm not really sure because the Twin Cam powered bikes are not something I work on. I work on the older bikes. If you're concerned about the noise, take it to a dealer and let a mechanic ride it or if you have a friend that has a bike later than '06, swap bikes for a ride and see what you hear.

Good Luck

Harley six speed clutch adjustment

mostley the clutch adjustment should be able to be done on the clutch cable. If that does not work, then you need to be looking at taking the clutch apart. When in storage for a long time, the clutch plates can become stuck together.

Harley davidson 2003 heritage

There is a clutch adjustment. You can adjust it on the cable under the black boot is an adjster. You can also adjust it at ball and ramp. Unless you've been slipping the clutch a lot, I don't believe you need to redo the basket.
