This project for the wife is very close to completion, however if I hear "It doesn't do me any good if I can't pull the clutch!" just one more time I'll probably kill her. Anyway, like a good little newb I did extensive searches on several different forums boards and saw all kinds of neat "doo-dads" for assistance in this area. I am a little green as far as motorcycle go but I am very mechanically inclined. The cable has been removed, and thoroughly cleaned and oiled to insure free movement, it is not "routed" on the bike in any way, just kinda out in one big arch from the bars down to the case and it is still very hard. I do notice that when you try to put it into gear it wants to grind, or bang into gear. Is this simply an out of adjustment thing, or do you guys think that properly adjusted it will still be a hard pull? Thanks in advance for any input!
