Default Re: Another How to Question (Clutch Cable)......

You probably need a "major" adjustment, which is located at the clutch pivot arm underneath the front sprocket cover. Back out any of the "minor" adjustments you made at the clutch lever, and set it so you can move the barrel adjuster in and out if need be.

Then follow Andy's instructions, he also covers how to set the pivot correctly. The pivot transfers the cable pull action into the push action on the clutch push rod which goes into the engine case. When its off, it will cause the lever to have a stiff pull since the mechanical advantage isn't there, so more travel is needed to push in the clutch rod.

Edit: Oh and don't lube the stock SV cables, they come pre coated in a teflon lube mix, so sometimes adding more chain wax or cable lube will gum them up and you will get less mileage out of them. People have no problem getting 60K or 5 years out of clutch cables. WD-40 would be alright, its not going to cause any further problems, but its also not going to solve any

You win the prize today! I knew that they had a coating, but figured the WD-40 would clean out any gunk that may be accumulating in the housings. Thanks!
