Hey guys, I’m having trouble putting the finishing touches to my rebuilt DRZ. I can’t attach the clutch cable to the clutch shaft (the vertical rod that extends out of the engine) and have it properly actuate the clutch. I wondered if anybody knew of the right technique, or could lend me a hand?
I also managed to bugger the thread on the small arm that attaches to the shaft, so will have to order a replacement first. I damaged it getting frustrated and becoming ham-fisted I can attach it with the clutch cable loosened at the lever area, and then tighten it so it has some feel to the movement of the lever, but it doesn’t seem to fully disengage the clutch to the point where I can turn the rear wheel.
I’m guessing there’s some pre-turning of the clutch shaft before I can attach the arm? I can’t do this alone I don’t think. Any help appreciated!
