The worm screw fork for the clutch cable had been twisted, the clutch was real tough to pull then, it would not release.|
You probably can not tell much by the pics. but I thought I would give it a try.
The holes in the fork are tweaked, kind of bad, I have tried to straighten them but, when I took it apart, it appeared that the cables T was pulling from one side only.Is there a modified screw/fork that is a bit thicker, to keep them from bending ???
I had the clutch cable routed like the brake cable, through one of the holes in the top triple tree bracket, like the brake cable, in the last pic. that I will be posting on this matter. It seemed that the short s, by going through that hole had quite a bind on the cable but, it looked proper. I will reroute the clutch and brake cables so they will make their run under the top plate.
I had lubed the cable liberally, with Break free, for the silicone, the cable did`nt seem to be sliding freely within its housing so I am now lubeing it with Moly engine assembly grease, it is a real light grease, and the cable now seems to be sliding freely.
