Spero non vi salti in mente di stringere troppo l'innesto del cavo della frizione. Se dicono di non farlo un motivo c'è. Eccolo! Filetto spezzato, un litro d'olio per terra e la primaria a secco. Così mi sono divertito a smontare il carter e ad estrarre il vecchio filetto con un apposito estrattore. Ovviamente non potevo resistere ed ho montato un nuovissimo cavo Barnett Stealth in treccia d'acciaio rivestita in gomma nera.
I hope you will never tighten too much the clutch cable into the primary box. They always warn you not to do it and this is the reason. The screw broke, a quart of oil on the floor and the primary dry. So I had some fun disassembling the primary box and extracting the broken screw with a special extractor. I finished the job installing a brand new Barnett Stealth cluth cable.

  1. Hello,
    I don't understand your language (I would guess it's Italian ?) but the pics speak for themselves, I had the same problem on my 2008 XL883 and I found a solution that looked easier to apply :
    You can remove the footpeg instead of the whole cover and work pretty easily on the clutch cable just with removing the circular clutch cover. Here is the tutorial I used (even if you don't speak French, pictures are clear enough, especially for someone who has already dirtied his hands in this area of the bike) http://samourai21.over-blog.com/article-17081089.html
    It's just about changing the cable when it's old, not when it has been broken like yours or mine. The technique I used to remove the broken part from the primary cover was to use a carpenter's tool that looks like a screw driver with a sharp point instead of the normal end (wikipedia calls it "Punzonatura" in Italian), I put it in front of the hole, punched it inside and by turning slowly I could get the broken screwed partof the clutch cable outside of the cover. After that you know how to put on a new one...

    I hope your bike works well now !

  2. Hello my friend, first of all, yes we are in Italy, the land of Pizza and Pasta. I took the whole thing off just for the fun of it. It's not such a big deal. The bike wasn't mine. My friend is happy now and he learnt the lesson.
    Thanks for checking in anyway.
