Hi All My clutch cable broke about a month ago. I got the replacement cable, fitted it but the push lever travel was excessive and uses up maybe 50% of the total movement before the clutch starts to engage so all the adjustment has to be taken out of the new cable before it will even start to work. Took out the push lever, pushrod 1 & 2 and pressure plate to check them over (manual just says look for wear) pushrod 1 assembly (mushroom shaped part) looked like there was a very small amount of wear so I replaced the assembly but problems still there with the new assembly. Everything else in the pushrod assembly looks fine, no wear or distortion. A couple of months before this I rego'd the bike and was told by the mechanic I should check the clutch as there was a noise coming from it and the clutch could be about to detonate. So I pulled the clutch apart and checked everything. Housings were all fine, no wear or movement that shouldn't be there. Plates were all flat and in tolerance as were the springs. Unfortunatly as the clutch was fine before this (good movement, not grabbing/slipping etc) so I didn't pay attention to the push lever positioning so have nothing to reference against. The slack in the system I need to take up is about 2mm. I could shim it to take up the slack but would sooner know if there's something i'm missing first. If anyone else has had this problem and solved it i'd appreciate any advice.
