How's your Clutch issue progressing? Your first topic posted to this Website. You never responded with what the issue was for your Rear Wheel not turning. It will help others to know what you found out!

OOP's I misread your post. I found one by just entering Key word Aftermarket Headlight. Just forgot what the URL is.

So it was an issue with the kick stand, once I replaced that piece everything was great until now. Currently clutch cable is beyond loose for some reason so I'm trying to figure out the cause of it. I think the clutch wire is just beyond stretched out so I have to buy a replacement wire.

You Say:

"So it was an issue with the kick stand, once I replaced that piece everything was great until now. Currently clutch cable is beyond loose for some reason so I'm trying to figure out the cause of it. I think the clutch wire is just beyond stretched out so I have to buy a replacement wire."



I've heard of ends being pulled off. Never heard of a Clutch Cable Stretching to being beyond loose where adjusting would not take up the slack of the Clutch Cable.

Was this Clutch Cable tight Previously?

If it was and now it's loose:

Were you in this left side cover case where this Clutch Lever Assembly is and loosened that Nut and/or Screw?
Let me know and we'll try to fix the issue.
