Re: Clutch Help Please!
"The bike is still rolling freely with the clutch arm cover off on the left and the cover, flower nut, clutch plate and spring off on the right side".
With those parts removed, it will roll freely! This is to be expected.
Put it back together, adjust it, and simply ensure that the clutch plate is not against the friction material when the clutch lever is pulled.
The design flaw I was talking about is in the factory clutch actuator assembly.
Get it back to the point where you are simply left with a stiff clutch handle...In other words make sure everything else is functioning.
If all that remains is an annoyingly stiff clutch...buy my kit and be done with it.
