Default Re: new member - first install - questions? of course

first, check what marts1 said above. where the cable guide screws into the engine, make sure it's not bottomed out, or contacting anything inside of there.

and.... what you're saying is that if you physically push the clutch arm all the way in, as far as you can, so it's basically underneath the carb, it still won't release?

new clutches can be pretty stiff. it might take some effort.

also, when i first built mine, i thought my clutch was messed up, too. it seemed to me there should be more free play in the cable, but the opposite is true. my cable adjustment feels like it's got a lot of tension and it should be actuating the clutch, but it's not.
