The old and the new
After playing with the free play on the motorcycle it became apparent that the problem lie deeper within. I started the search looking over the routing of the new cable hoping it was a simple bind or kink but there were none. I pulled off the caps on the transmission case to check out the actuator and to my dismay there lay the problem. It didn’t take more then a few more pulls on the clutch to realize the clutch actuator was bending and with another pull it broke.
Replacing the part was not bad at all. The Transmission cover on the Royal Enfield had to be removed. The clutch actuator itself was bolted on the back side. After receiving the replacement form Classic Motorworks it was not a hard task at all to simply switch the actuator out and make simple adjustments. I also decided it was a perfect time to reroute a proper clutch cable.
