Just Replaced Clutch Cable
Hey all, hopefully a simple question here. 93 k75 50k, Just replaced clutch cable as last one snapped at the lever. I ziptied end to end and pulled through, as the manual said to take care routing the cable identically.
Upon fastening everything I noticed the cable doesn't seem quite long enough, no free play in clutch, slack when handlebars are pointed right, raises idle speed when handlebars point forward or to the left.
I did check to see if it was just throttle cables getting pinched, re-layed cable around the throttle cables, I've tried laying it a few different orientations around the head into the lever, and still the same issue.
Is there some sort of throttle component that may be getting pinched around the airbox area? or elsewhere in there where I can't reach?
Panhandling on Brooklyn Bridge for a spare clutch plate.
