Everybody's ignoring you Sixpac...

Free bump Buddy.

Hey, how was Sturgis?

Oh yeah, the clutch.

The fork didn't by chance come off the pivot when you were installing it did it?

No, we have it on a lift and everything it just won't disengage.. And we adjusted the cable a ton but hits the bell housing before it will even disengage..

I keep forgetting not everyone has an adjustable one... disregard. You can buy an adjustable one though if you want. That'd fix any issues.

At any rate something is not installed right or adjusted right if this is happening to you. Probably something really stupid that you'll want to kick yourself for.

You sure the TOB and EVERYTHING is installed correctly?

Well it's been in the shop for 9 days now, we can only work 4 hours a day, and only M-Thursday.. But it's just getting to be a long process with all the replacement parts..
