I got to feeling better after my recent date with Ms. Asphalt and figured I'd do a few things to the dog. I changed to a 32 tooth pulley and changed the drive belt while I was at it. Adjusted the clutch as stated in the manual. Got a chance to ride this afternoon. Everything seemed fine til I got out of the driveway. The clutch was slipping when throttled. I came back to my shop and started digging. Readjusted everything and it didn't help. I then pulled the pipes and actuator cover. Checked everything, no issues that I could tell. Reinstalled the rod and set to specs. Seat the rod then back off 1/4 turn. Then adjusted the cable with a 1/16 play. The clutch would not engage. The clutch leaver could not be pulled. Long story short. I had it in neutral. Backed everything off, put it in 1st and readjusted everything. Now it seems right but I have to get new exhaust flange gaskets to install the pipes. I haven't ridden it yet. Was being in neutral my issue?
