    Out of clutch adjustment

    Hey Guys,

    Pretty stuck here (2007 GS500, 36*** km).

    I'm completely out of clutch adjustment.
    The pushrod adjustment is all the way in, clutch lever adjustment all the way out, and adjuster above sprocket cover is all the way out.

    Lever is slack. Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Peter

    Is this a hydraulic system or cable operated ?

    If cable, the cable may be stretched.......and about to break.

    If hydraulic, it's probably time to flush and bleed the lines; but it may be a sign of a bad cylinder at either end.
    If one cylinder is bad, I would replace both.
    Don't believe everything that you think.

    Clutch cables are supposed to be inspected for wear, and lubed, roughly every 3k-4k miles. Probably a good idea to do it at every oil change. They do stretch over time and you may also see some fraying near the connection points. Replacing it now sounds like a good first step.

    And after noting the statement about the lever (and I assume the cable and other parts too) being "slack"........there may be something broken inside the clutch.
    They most often stick closed......not open.
