Clutch adjustment

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone

Have read of some Honda ATV owners complaining of a stuck or seized clutch adjustment screw.

I had the same problem on my 2000 350 rancher.My solution was to loosen the lock nut,apply penetrating oil,and drive for a few days with the lock nut loose.(don't loose it).

The constant heating and cooling (with the penetrating oil) of the engine allowed the penetrating oil to work itself in.

After a few days I noticed the clutch was slipping more than normal,at which point I was able to move the adjustment screw back and forth (gently) and with a little more oil was able to actually turn the screw very easily.

Voila! Clutch adjustment screw works like it should.

Hope this helps some,

Welcome aboard.  That sure beats having to pull the front cover doesn't it?
