Hey Don, clutch is working fine now. Fingers crossed the 3 new screws don't back out after red loctite on them. I popped clutch cable at the very end of that job but went down to the boat harbor and replaced by putting stainless cable in the clutch cable sleeve. It popped I believe because I had the cable too tight making this pinging sound. Now it has a little slop for about the first inch of pull then gets tight. I couldn't get the 1/8 inch play on the lever without it pinging from somewhere inside the primary cover so I loosened up until the pinging stopped so now im dealing with some slop in the lever [shrugging my shoulders].
I can only find about the lubrication and maintenance of the rear chain in the manual
. What is the slack tolerance on the rear chain? Mine seems super loose while on a jack, rear tire off the ground, its loose enough to push over enough and just touches the rear tire. My father broke off the center stand many years ago so I dont have that option to put on center stand. I just have to jack it up just off center of gravity.
Also, I'm running straight pipes now. Should I get a bigger carb jet or richen the mixture?
