    Default Installed foot clutch and now no clutch, 07 sporty

    ok, i put a jockey shift, foot clutch on my sporty....pretty simple mechanically. before the bike shifted and worked fine. the clutch cable has tension and is pulling but the clutch is not engaging. the bolt on the bottom of the case has a allen head inset bolt in it that got turned when we mounted the cable bracket. does that have anything to do with it? ill send a pic when i get on a better computer.

    What do you mean by engaging? So the clutch won't connect? If that's the case, then you probably have too much tension on the cable, disallowing the spring to function entirely...

    The nut on the bottom of the case is the adjuster for the primary chain...

    Oh, and buy a shop manual.

    So you used the chain adjuster to mount a bracket?

    Sounds like you need to adjust your clutch.

    And using the tensioner bolt to hold a mounting bracket does not sound like a good idea

    I just caught that looking closer at the picture. Also having it mounted at only one point may not be a great idea. Think of leaning it over into a turn and dragging something. Not sure if it'll hit before the kickstand, but I wouldn't take the chance with the primary chain adjuster bolt, only one mounting point, and that point being into cast aluminum.

    Mounting it with the bolts that hold the primary cover on would be a better idea IMHO

    Exactly. Use a couple of primary case mounting allens. Get a couple of 1/4" bungs and some 1/4" longer mounting allens and fab up something that will last. You best reset the tension on that primary chain too before you heat and cool the chain.

    i fixed it. that bolt is not going anywhere and is more than enough to hold a 5oz bracket that has not weight or stress on it. the clutch needed adjusting.......
