Just how the title says it...Rebuilding a bike and the clutch cable was destroyed & turned the shaft! I pulled the cable and pushed the shaft back to get the bike to shift. Everything was fine, then my buddy pulled the shaft out! I now have tried about 10 different ways to turn the shaft in & nothing gives. Any picture or start point on putting this back in would be helpful! :eek:ccasion1

It actually just sticks in and only turns a bit by hand.. Unbolt the upper bolt to the clutch cable and install the cable on the rod first, then the top and then rethread the bolt on the cable (pretty sure thats how I did mine hmm)

Ok guys! My write up!

Got a new clutch cable, installed that!(left it off the shaft of course) But when it comes down to the shaft problem it falls on the "rod" in the clutch assembly. After two people made it very clear that if the shaft wont turn in easy then the rod is most likely bent. So I drained the oil, then pulled all the bolts & the cover! First thing I saw was the rod bent like someone wrapped a paper clip around there finger. So part is on order and after this, were good to go! Here is a picture of a stock rod so if anyone else has this problem & has to crack case it should look like this not bent:thumbsup:

thanks bloo & busacaptain
