Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Clutch lever / free play spring

Post by stelladragon on Tue 09 Aug 2016, 5:31 pm

I've just changed the pressure plate springs, and fitted a lowish mileage basket which has reduced the rattle etc. Everythings fine, but the lever doesn't seem to spring back to the stop within the freeplay in the cable. Should it? I'm concerned I may not have the pushrod/spring quite right in the casing.

With the clutch cable disconnected, the clutch arm springs towards the front of the bike. I can't recall what it was like before I took it to bits!

Did you manage to fix/adjust it? Not quite sure I've understood what you were going on about: the cable pulls the clutch arm towards the front of the bike when you pull the lever, it should sprint towards the back when you release...
