...The clutch actuating 'arm' that the cable connects to is what changes the pulling motion of the cable to a pushing motion on the thrust pin that moves the clutch in/out. ...
to PhilJFront brake? I should've added that I have small hands and rheumatoid arthritis and a fairly steep hill - but most of all - as my wife will tell you, I don't seem to mind looking like an idiot.
I just got back from the dealer where my bike is still apart. I saw the arm and it actually looks like the cable somehow tore through the metal and ripped itself free. The arm is not only "torn" but also pulled apart between the connecting holes. I think that it was probably failing and slowly pulling apart over the past hundred or so miles and that is why it was getting harder to find neutral and requiring more effort to change gears. It's really freaky looking. The dealer and I agree that it must have been a bad cast when they made the arm. Anyway, if any of you are experiencing those symptoms you may want to double check that arm while you're adjusting the clutch.
Did it look like this? ...
...Do you know when your bike was made? I'm curious to know if this was perhaps a bad run and, if there was a run of bad castings, what dates they might have been used on the line. Just reachin' here.
