Stiff Clutch

Postby bergilong » 02:31 pm Jan 09 2018

I replaced the clutch plates, springs(heavy duty), and cable on my KDX200. The clutch pull was insanely hard. I had to use two hands to pull the clutch in. I put the old clutch springs back in and it helped a lot, but the clutch pull is still harder than normal. Any ideas?

Cable routing? Is the cable itself binding or kinked?

Cable routing would be first check. I also lube new cables to make sure they are lubed well. Was your clutch basket really notched?

My clutch basket was really notched, but I filed it down. I'll check cable routing.

Check to make sure all your bolts are torked to spec. You can get a hard pull If the bolt holding the clutch to the shaft is loose at all.
