I am currently in the middle of a pretty big project. Pulled the motor for various reasons that will be addressed when I close out another topic that I posted a while back.
My current issue involves my clutch. I replaced the cable because I thought it was stretched. The clutch kept having to be adjusted till it was maxed out again. However, I reached the maxed out point, even on the new cable. At this point I figured it was that my clutch was completely shot. I purchased a new one and installed it while the motor was off the bike. Which brings me to my current dilema.
After a couple pulls of the lever, the slack increases. I got to the point where there is even slack when the nut is maxed out, even with the new cable, plates, and fibers. Clearly none of these are my problem.
My question is, what gives?!?
I can't remember the name of the rod that engages/disengages the clutch. Do you think the rod is the culprit? I can pull the cover off and check parts, but I'm not sure what to look for.
Any help is appreciated. Sorry for the long read.
