    I could use some help again I know I'm making a regular habit of this. I have a friend that has an 2005 Arlen Ness Chopper S&S 124 cubic inch I'm helping him work on his bike and first off what kind of clutch is in the picture? Second there is hardly an adjustment left in the clutch even after cable adjustment and inner clutch primary adjustment. Could this be throw out bearing, Bad clutch springs, Bad clutch, [​IMG]what? I'll listen to all takers... Thanks...

    How many miles on it?

    What do you mean no adjustment left? If you pull the lever does the plates move at all?

    Bikes has just under 18,000 and when I say no adjustment I guess I stated that wrong. No matter where you adjust it to it starts pulling 1/4" off handgrip...

    That could be a throw out bearing, but the more I think about it, I think your backing the push rod out to far from touching the bearing. About 1/8 of a turn, should be plenty.
