    Clutch cable to tight?

    17 rmx450z.my clutch is very hard to pull in.after riding about an hour I would have to adjust on the fly after a stall cause the bike would creep forward while trying to restart.i got to looking at the cable and it is like smashed into the frame so hard I can barely wiggle it.it also goes through a couple of tight bends.i can get the clutch to work it’s just hard to pull maybe some lube but other bikes I’ve had the cables were never the tight.i had to slide the lever down the bar and I think that may be helping idk.

    My question is would a clutch cable that’s is not routed properly or is to short cause a tight pull on the lever?thanks👍

    When I tried to slide the copper heat piece into my radiator I broke some small fins and fluid came out.my fault.i think I’ll try a again this winter.the fan I thought would only fit on left side.after I damaged radiator I replaced them with oversized and only overheated once in really tight track when it was +90f.when I get into tight single I start to have problems lol.you know like crashing lol.no pictures of installed kit.

    Yes I have the same problem.i tried the trail tech fan kit and broke a radiator.then I put on the oversized radiators but still overheated on some really tight single track in a hedge row.i saw the coolant leaking on the ground.it was about 90f that day.it seems to me when I get into really tight single track I get into trouble with overheating,but once I get out I do ok.beginner rider.

    what kind of settings are you guys running with your jd tuners?i took all of the then ended up putting back in cause i thought it ran better with it all in there except air snorkel.

    another fng here with some questions

    hi my name is Bob.i picked up a 17 a couple of months ago and have ridden a few sprint enduro.i have jd tuner and removed air flapper and i noticed after about an hour of slow riding my idle seems to slowly keep getting higher as time goes on.i have played with the knob a few times and seems to go up by it self then after shifting to 2 or 3 gear it will run normal again.i thought it was hand control but I'm not sure.other than that no other problems.
