Too much slack on 2011 YZ450 clutch cable

I have exhausted all the adjustment at the lever on the clutch cable. Still too much slack. Does this indicate that I need to replace the clutch, or

  • Could the cable just need to be replaced?
  • Is there a way to get more adjustment out of the cable, other than adjuster above clutch lever?

Clutch seems to operate fine.

Let me know what you guys think,



Looking at the clutch cable about an inch or two out from the lever, there should be a rubber sleeve covering the housing. Pulling this back should reveal a mid-cable adjuster.

Yes, that is the adjustment I've exhausted (just above the lever). I have it fully extended.
