Hey Guys! Sad day in Mudville, I changed my oil this morning, in preparation for a great day's riding. The oil filters were fine, and the level was set correctly. No real problems with the clutch other than the chatter. I readjusted the clutch cable so that catch point was as required by the manual. I started to ride, no problems. Everything was fine, till my first hill climb. The only thing that sounded worse was a bunch of rowdy kids clanging on pots and pans. The clutch went. Finding 1st/N/2nd extremely difficult. I literally need to pound it into gear. Even under throttle to get home, the clutch just screams...BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG! Okay, we've been here before. I don't want a Yamaha replacement clutch in my bike. I don't trust their OEM clutch parts. Hinson seems to be the way to go. Any suggestions in dealing with Yamaha? Believe me guys, I will be completely professional with Yamaha. IM NOT GOING TO SCREAM AND THREATEN CLASS ACTION OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. I just want them to be responsible. Other than that, it was a beautiful day. Thanks! Randy YZ426 Kicks. On the cable: there was free play each time I went out riding between the catch point, and released position of the clutch handle. Every time I go out that free play would disappear. Can the cable stretch?
