Ok, so the bike in question is a '00 426. After a good day of riding, about a mile from home my clutch cable broke off at the clutch lever. No biggie really, these things happen to older bikes. My problem is in regards to the push lever, it has no tension on it at all. I can move it freely forward and aft. I had zero clutch problems until this point. The bike was rolling from a start when the cable snapped and the bike locked up. I basically just put it in neutral started it, started rolling and kicked it into first no clutch...no issues getting the bike home. So the tranny is fine. I got it up on the stand to putz with it and realized the clutch will not "engage" (i believe it is actually disengage, ie I cannot rotate tire while in gear while moving the push lever by hand). I've searched the 400/26/50 forum for both push lever and push rod and have not come up with anything related. I'm assuming when the clutch abruptly lost tension perhaps the ball that engages the push rod fell or something to that extent. I haven't had the chance to pull the clutch due to work but I've spent all day pondering what may have caused this. If there is anyone on here that has had the same issue or is a clutch guru and can possibly enlighten me to my dilemma I would be very thankful.
