Clutch Cable Adjusted

Trouble finding neutral while the bike was running was one of the things that had been on the list. I also noticed she was "creeping" some while in gear with the clutch disengaged.

Well, after doing some random reading on the shovelhead forums it seems that both are symptoms of a clutch cable in need of adjustment. Made sense once I thought about it.

It took about 5 minutes to get her adjusted correctly. Neutral is easy to find now and no more creep!

One more off the list ^^


  1. You should do a total cost of repairs section or something to that effect. Itemize it too so people, who are thinking about getting and restoring a bike, will have an idea of how much work and money goes into one of these things. Just a thought.
