  1. It’s not really …
    It’s not really neccessary. The clutch cable adjustment is for cable slack and that’s it. The adjustment at the clutch itself is to adjust the freeplay between the clutch components. The actuator is on the other side of the transmission and uses a pushrod though the transmission mainshaft to disengage the clutch. It’s basically that pushrod’s slack that is being adjusted at the clutch.

  2. Not sure, check …
    Not sure, check your manual, it will let you know.

    Good luck,

  3. – (Continued) as …
    – (Continued) as always, when in doubt follow the manual. I feel the clutch cable adjustment is there as a convenience so you don’t have to dig into the primary. But hey… I was already there… so why not make the adjustment at the clutch rather than the cable.

    Those are just my thoughts. Again, I am not an AMI trained mechanic. I adjusted the clutch, at the clutch adjusting screw, and made sure I had “free” play, 1/16th to 1/8th gap at the lever as I tightened the screw.

  4. – You are …
    – You are absolutely correct. Step 3 on page 6-8 of the 1995 Softail Service manual states you should, in reference to figure 6-9, “Loosen the jamnut and remove the adjuster screw and jamnut.” (On the Cable)

    I skipped this step. To me there are two places in the system to make adjustments. The cable and the Clutch Adjusting Screw. As you release/engage the clutch at the lever, while you loosen / tighten the Clutch Adjusting Screw, you can “feel” the play left in the clutch.

  5. I watched a few of …
    I watched a few of your videos,they were a big help (just like other people said here before me) But I have a question: towards the end of the video , when you re-install the clutch adjuster and jam nut, you then check your clutch action. HOW is that possible?? I thought before you remove all of the clutch parts, you must run the clutch cable free play adjustment all the way in, to have a slack cable. Am i wrong, on that.??

    – First, thank you for your service in the industry. Without you we would all be in a lot of trouble. Second, thank you for taking the time to comment. Your comments, and those of others, motivate me to make more of the same; or they address errors – I appreciate both.

    Sometimes, all we need is to just watch over someone’s shoulder to get an idea on how stuff works.

    Good luck on your sled, but I am sure you don’t need it.

    – As an old wrench told me once, sometimes you gotta run it ’till it breaks. Giving a bike a little gas is no big deal, unless you are talking fuel injected; then you might have a problem.
