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,
