Should there be tension on this shaft or should it just free spin from stop to stop? Background: I don't even know where to begin. I've looked in the manual to see what this part is called, but I can't find it. In my mind it should in some way disengage the clutch since it's at the end of the clutch cable. I'm thinking it should have tension. The bike felt like the clutch was fluttering or the chain was dragging, but the chain tension was good. It wasn't at any set speed, set RPM, or any time; it would just happen anywhere from 35-65 mph. I came home with the bright idea of adjusting my clutch cable. I popped the end of the cable off that shaft and now the shaft just flops. I don't want to open the case up if I don't have to. I drained the oil. There was no big shavings on the magnet, just standard minimum of gray metal sludge barely covering the magnet. Any help is good. I have a factory repair manual with a so-so tool kit, but I want to make this as easy as possible.
