    Sorry if I wasn't clear, I did not touch the shaft itself. I only removed the engine-side slave lever to change its position on the threads atop the shaft, then reverted it back to normal after I saw no improvement. The shaft stayed put (although it has a little vertical play). I didn't remove it nor rotated it (it doesn't rotate further than allowed by the slave lever even without the spring).

    I have the service manual (2007 edition, for the NHG and others).

    That's all that's left.

    Unless all of a sudden the under cover (don't know your year bike) clutch release bearing failed:

    Please confirm that with light pressure on the lower clutch arm, "the alignment marks line up".

    Confirmed.

    I forgot to mention that I had a certain stickiness to the clutch lever before, which I attributed to the cable failing condition. I had to push it forward by hand back to its resting position but the clutch itself didn't seem to be affected. Maybe it's related to today's ailments.

    So your advice is to open up the clutch cover and check that everything is set to specs? I shouldn't have to drain the oil if I put the bike on the side stand, right?

    Re: Chain whizzing noise

    NO, do not pull off the clutch cover...

    Re-clock that lower arm. It's out of sync with the shaft that goes into the engine..

    That shaft, apparently right now, does not have all the play out of it, thus NO clutch plate movement. Once it's taught again, it should work.

    I've read of maybe TWO of those clutch bearings failing in 8 years here, very, very rare.


    BTW, you can pull the clutch cover without draining the oil (but don't for this issue)

    The shaft rotation is only about 60 degrees, which doesn't change with the lower arm position (by lower arm you mean the slave lever, whatever the cable attaches to right?). If so I'm sorry but I don't quite get it

    Re: Chain whizzing noise

    We're talking right now ONLY about the lower lever/shaft...

    Pull the lever off the shaft. Turn the SHAFT CLOCKWISE till snug.

    Now, set the arm back on (your working against the lower return spring) with the marks dead on or one notch MORE clockwise.

    If correctly clocked, with some pressure, marks will line up (as earlier pictured).

    Then with the clutch cable hooked up, the clutch should work correctly.


    NOTE: I just checked mine, I CANNOT BUDGE that lever with two hands (disengage the clutch).

    It worked. Thank you so much, I'll be back to lane splitting to work tomorrow rather than sitting in traffic. On the rear stand the wheel is perfectly still with the lever pulled in and first gear engaged (note: that Bihr aftermarket cable works perfectly in the end).

    I don't know how it didn't occur to me the free play in the shaft was abnormal and that I obviously wouldn't be able to disengage all the clutch springs by hand. It'd have been a much faster procedure had I a circlip pliers on hand though.

    A new chain, a set of sprockets and new tires will be in next Friday (I'm letting the mechanics do it this time). Brake and forks oil change are next on my plate.

    Thanks again Scott!
