99 YZ400 wont shift

1 post in this topic

I replaced the clutch cable on my YZ and I think I broke something. Or somethings. While replacing the cable I noticed the torsion spring on the push rod was kind of bent up so I took the clutch cover off, loosened the clutch springs and pulled the rod to replace the spring. Now when I put everything back together, it seems I'm not getting enough travel on the push rod. Or its not engaging soon enough, maybe?


Either way, it died when I shifted N->1st, and I can't get it to shift out of 1st. The clutch springs are all in spec (1.72") and torqued down. What should I be looking at to get a better/earlier engagement? Or could I have messed something up when removing the push rod?


Any help is appreciated!
