I was wondering how to adjust the clutch in the primary to the lever on a 2005 sportster 883. Had to install new clutch cable and cant get it right.Read some articles on it but this is a little different . It doesnt have a nut it has a lock washer and a spring. and it screws in not with a llen wrech but a screwdriver. can someone please guide me :confused:

with your clutch cover removed, remove also the spring(and attached nut)
turn, with a screwdriver, outwards, or anti-clockwise, until you feel it lightly seating - at this point operate the clutch lever a few times, and then re-set the screw till it lightly seats.
Turn it in 1/4-1/2 turn and ri-install the removed nut with attached spring - its flats may not seat perfectly over the flats of the scree adjuster - but thats why it is a 1/4-1/2 setting.;)
