Default Re: Clutch arm questions

Ok so what happens if you just press as hard as possible to try and force that arm counter-clockwise? It does take a bit of force to move that lever out of gear. Probably like, at least 3/4 of the strength of one of your thumbs. It should hurt a little bit if you try and hold it there longer than a couple seconds. & that outer wheel shouldn't move as much as the lever, it'l only move like maybe 1mm or so.

Also, the o'clock discussion here may be a little off. Most of our arms aren't bent like that. So when we say 5:00, we mean the base of your clutch arm is pointing that way, not the bent end.
