2013 WR450: Tight clutch cable in hard left turn

6 posts in this topic

Any advice about how I could fix a too tight clutch cable, in hard left turn?

 

It takes all the slack out of the cable, and pulls the clutch "in" slightly, at max left turn.

 

At straight ahead "neutral", there is about an inch of free play movement at the "mid-lever to handlebar " measurement posiition. That is, it feels like alot of free play...

 

Thanks.

Hum are you using taller bars. Check your shop manual for cable routing.

Yeah, I did forget to mention this: I have a (10mm?) bar riser added, plus a scotts damper with the rubber mounts.

Pull the tank, pull the cable, re route the cable , re install

 

OK, thanks.  I eyeballed it with no tank removed. I was not sure if I could ignore the OEM routing. I'll try re-routing, and ignore the OEM route.
