You must have dropped a bushing/spacer that would take up some of the slack

You should adjust the cable at the handlebars until it has loads of play and hardly moves the cable when you use the lever, then adjust the same cable at the gearbox end until it comes back into acceptable range with correct amount of play, then tighten locknut.
This is just taking up normal wear in the clutch. Note as guzzi clutches wear you get a clanking vibration noise from them at idle, its normal.

Check to make sure the slave and master cylinders are working. You can probably bleed it if the slave cylinder started leaking. Could possibly be internal on the clutch master.

You have basically disengaged the clutch. Remove the "spacer" and adjust the clutch on the pedal end.

Pulling the lever releases the clutch. Disengageing it so you don't go. Ok, in order to engage the clutch fully, you release the lever and you must have at leas 1/4 inch free play.
If it is not going in gear easily, you probably have too much free play and you are not fully disengageing.. There is the possibility of an internal adjust ment Try the above and let me know how or if that works. Clutch lever pulled by closing your fist releases the clutch for shifting.

Disconnect the clutch cable at the case then see if the there is any resistance in the clutch lever in-out movement. When the tank was remounted the cable may have gotten pinched or moved out of proper routing. If I understand correctly, prior to the frame painting the clutch was okay, but after the paint it was not, and the left and right side cases and clutch were not touched. Obviously you used the wrong brand of paint. The clutch would have been fine if you had used Krylon brand paint. Post a comment and let me know what you find.

Does a nissan primera 1993 have a hydraulic clutch or cable either ither how do I adjust it? Also its crunching very bad in 1st & reverse & just starting to crunch in 3rd help please


Its fairly easy to determine if your clutch is hydraulic or cable. Check in the engine compartment against the firewall on the drivers side, and see if there are one or two hydraulic reservoirs side by side. If there are two, the far left one is for the clutch, and you have a hydraulic clutch.
If you have a cable clutch, the cable should be clearly seen by the side of the brake hydraulic reservoir, a rather thick cable running from the firewall to the bell housing area.
There are two possibilities for adjusting - the adjusting nuts are either at the point where the outer part of the cable enters the firewall to connect to the clutch pedal, or where the inner cable connects to the release bearing fork.
To adjust, release the outer nut (there should be two, one is a locknut) and take up the slack by screwing the other nut inward.
Make sure you don't overtighten the cable, this could lead to your clutch slipping and you will need to replace the clutch plate sooner.
A hydraulic clutch is usually not adjustable, so if you have a problem there, take it to a service station.
Have fun.

Tl1000r clutch wont work


the clutch adjuster on the engine, not the cable adjuster, the unit behind the cover where the cable enters on the engine left side sat on bike, loosen the cables, remove the cover and loosen the 10 mm nut, get flat driver and screw the pin in till you meet resistance, then a tad midges dikc more, then back off quarter a turn, keeping the pin from moving with driver use 10 mm spanner hold driver tight and tighten the nut, it sounds like the adjuster needs loosening, as it is operating the clutch.

My 1999 HD Superglide has 48,000 miles on it and I just had new cam shoes installed last fall. My problem is when you put the bike in gear, it makes a God-awful metal on metal grinding noise. What do you...


Does the grinding noise stop once you get the transmission in gear? if so, you may need to adjust your clutch. To adjust the clutch, find the cable adjuster in the middle of the clutch cable. It should be near the downtubes of the frame in front of the engine. Slide the boot up or down to expose the adjuster and loosen the lock nut. Turn the adjuster barrel inwards getting a good deal of slack in the clutch cable. Then, stand the bike up fairly straight and remove the derby cover from the primary. Inside, you'll see the clutch assembly with the adjuster screw in the center of it. Loosen the locknut and turn the adjuster screw inwards until you feel a resistance. DO NOT FORCE THE SCREW OR YOU'LL DESTROY YOUR INNER CLUTCH HUB. Once you feel the pressure, back off on the screw 1/2 turn and lock the lock nut down tight. Replace the derby cover. Go back to the cable adjuster and turn the adjuster barrel outwards until you have about 1/8 inch freeplay in the lever at the pivot. Lock the lock nut down tight and replace the protective cover. Also, make sure that the oil in your primary is not too high. With the bike standing straight up, the oil should be just to the bottom edge of the outer clutch drum, the bright aluminum ring on the outside of the clutch assembly. If it's too high, the clutch will drag and you will be unable to find neutral with the engine running.

Good Luck

When shifting my 2005 flhtp seem like it clunks when going into gear upshift and downshift is that normal or do i need clutch adjustment


I'd adjust the clutch. With the engine off, put the transmission in first gear. Pull the clutch in and hold it. Try to start the engine. If the bike pulls forward, you need to adjust the clutch.

Find the rubber boot that covers the cable adjuster on the clutch cable and move it up or down. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster inwards getting as much slack in the cable as possible.

Then, take the derby cover off the primary. You'll see an adjuster screw in the middle of the clutch assembly. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster inwards until you feel a resistance. DO NOT FORCE THE SCREW OR YOU'LL DAMAGE YOUR INNER CLUTCH HUB. Turn the screw in until you feel a resistance. Then, back it back out 1/2 turn and tighten the lock nut. Replace the derby cover.

Go back to the cable adjuster and turn the adjuster barrel out until you have about 1/8 inch of freeplay in the cable. Tighten the lock nut and replace the rubber boot.

Good Luck

Shifting.... Hits hard when shifting...


You may need to adjust your clutch as it sounds like it's not releasing all the way. The way to test this is to put the transmission in low gear, pull the clutch lever in, and start the engine. If the bike tries to move forward, the clutch is not releasing all the way.

Follow the clutch cable down until you find the bellows type cover that protects the cable adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster all the way in.

Now, take the derby cover off and you'll see a screw with a locknut on it. Loosen the locknut. Turn the screw inwards until you feel a resistance. Do not force the screw, simply turn it inwards until you feel the resistance. Then, back it off 1/2 turn and lock the lock nut down. Reinstall the derby cover.

Go back to the cable and adjust the cable adjuster outwards until you have about 1/8" freeplay at the lever. See if that helps,

Ride Safe.

I am having problems shifting from first to second. It gets stuck in neutral and will not go to second.


Let's try adjusting your clutch. Follow the clutch cable down until you find the rubber bellows. Slid the bellows up and you'll see the cable adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and adjust the cable as short as it will go.

Now, remove the derby cover. In the center of the clutch assembly you'll see an adjuster screw and a lock nut. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster screw inwards until you feel pressure against the screw. Don't force the screw as you will start to release the clutch. Once you've went in until you feel resistance, back out 1/2 to 1 full turn. Lock the lock nut down.

Now at the cable adjuster, adjust the cable out until you have about an 1/8" freeplay at the lever. Lock the lock nut. Now, test the clutch to see if it's dragging. Pull in the clutch, put the tranny in first gear, hit the start button. If the bike tries to creep forward, the cluch is dragging and you need to tighted the cable just a bit. If the bike does not try to pull forward and you can find neutral with the engine running, your clutch is working like it should.

If this does not solve your problem, the shifter pawl in the transmission may need to be adjusted. This requires special tools and an educated touch. This job would be better left to a professional.

Good Luck

I need to change the clutch on my 1981 Kawasawki KE125


It should be under the left side engine case. un do case screws, remove clutch cable, the clutch should have a series of plates and are held in a basket with a big nut in the centre holding it on to the crank, remove nut and it all should slide off towards you. replace plates and replace every thing in the reverse order, when done make sure that there is 1/4 inch of play in the adjustment of the clutch lever. This means when you pull in the clutch you should not feel any resistance for the first 1/4 clutch lever travel. also when trying to undo clutch centre nut, put the bike in gear and put a steel bar through the spokes of the wheel held against the swing arm to lock up the engine to undo the nut and tighten it.

Hello I have a 2001 harley road king . When sitting still and trying to put in 1st gear . I am getting a slight grinding sound . And the bike is hard to go in gear . Do you have a solution or do i need to...


A slight grinding noise is common when sitting idling with the clutch out and then trying to put the transmission is first gear, especially when the transmission is cold. You can try holding the clutch in for a short while and then try putting it into gear to see if that stops it. I'm not sure adjusting the clutch is going to help much. It's a matter of stuff spinning and other stuff not spinning in the transmission.

If you want to adjust the clutch, find the "bellows" type cover that covers the adjuster in the middle of the cable. Work this cover up or down and uncover the cable adjuster. Break the lock nut loose and adjust the adjuster inward making the cable shorter. Adjust it all the way in.

Remove the derby cover. You may want to stand the bike up fairly straight up to do this to make sure you don't have any oil running out of the primary. With the derby cover off, you'll see the clutch pressure plate. In the middle of the plate, you'll see a screw with a lock nut on it. Make sure the bike is in neutral. Break the locknut loose. The engine may try to turn a bit when you try to break the nut loose. Turn the screw inward until you feel a resistance. I usually do this then back the screw back out a bit and then back in several times to make sure I'm at the point of resistance, no further. You don't want to start releasing the clutch with the screw. Once you've turned the screw inward until you feel the resistance, back it back out 1/2 to 1 turn. Lock the lock nut back down and reinstall the derby cover.

Then, adjust the cable adjuster out until you have about an 1/8 inch of free travel at your clutch lever pivot. I usually use a nickel between the clutch lever and the lever stancion.

Clutch slipping


first i would try adjusting the clutch cable because commonly people with think that they're clutch is going out when really just the cable has gotten stretched....try adjusting that first and if that works then you should be fine for another couple thousand miles but if you want to not have to worry bout it for awhile i would just replace teh clutch assembly....usually ranges from $200 to $450 depending on the clutch set and the mechanic that does the work for you. Let me know what happens. :)
