clutch question

10 posts in this topic

i was wondering.....does neone that has a yz400f ever break clutch cables excessively and/or have a hard clutch pull? i break cables all the time and my clutch pull is hard and i just replaced EVERYTHING-pushrods,basket,hub,plates.pressure plate,and springs and my pull is still hard :bonk::excuseme:

any advice would be greatly appreciated

I remember there was a mod that some people used to do, I'm pretty sure it was on YZ400's, and that was to lengthen the arm at the bottom end of the cable so that there's more leverage. I think they just used to cut the arm and add a bit of metal to lengthen it. If you do this, you may have to modify the cable holder aswell, so that it runs in line properly or the cable may wear on one side (not sure if you have to do that, just logically thinking).

Make sure your cable is routed correctly, probably the main cause of breaking cables and a hard pull :excuseme:
