my clutch cord got a lot of slack, I keep trying to adjust it but nothing really helping. I've almost got the clutch cord spacer (or what ever you call it) all the way out, but still got slack in the line:dontknow: how can I fix this??

btw I've drag raced about 2 times now. I've done a total of 6 passes down a 1/8th track. It always seems to get worse when I drag race... my bike only got 6k miles on it. some one please help... Stalling it getting really embarrassing:eyecrazy:

there is an adjustment down on the trans end of the clutch cable, you can adjust the length there by taking out all of the slack and then adjusting the wheel by the hand lever to give the cable aprox 4 mm of slack. if you have done this and still have problems you are probably a clutch r&r in your future

On the bottom end of the cable, right side.

If you look at the right side of your transmission above the oil fill cap you will see the cable, it is covered with an accordion shaped rubber boot. There is a bracket that it goes through with a threaded section and a nut on each side. This is where the slack in the cable is taken out. The procedure per the manual is as follows: turn the adjuster by the hand lever until 4-6 mm of thread is visible; Remove middle fairing(I didnt have to do this myself) ; slide the dust cover back; loosen the adjusting nuts as far as they will go; pull the outer cable"threaded section" tight and tighten the nuts against the bracket; slide the dust cover back in place; turn the adjuster up by the hand lever until there is 2-3 mm of free play" this is measured at the gap between the hand lever and lever holder with lever depressed just enough to take up any slack. After this measure the angle from the actuator rod that goes into the clutch cover to the pivot point where the clutch cable hooks into the lever on the cover and back up the cable. The angle should be 60degrees if it is not your clutch probably needs to be replaced.
