IN A CLUTCH In the old biker days before the modern age Yuppie bikers who buy outrageously priced new Harleys and then pay to have tons of chrome accessories added to them We actually built and maintained our Harley-Davidson Motorcycles ourselves No two bikes were the same everyone added their own personal touch to their bike Some of us were definitely better at this than others You could tell who the good ones were because they would be working on the other guys bike when it was broke down on the side of the road somewhere One common thing that many bikers would have trouble with was the clutch Either slipping because it was not adjusted properly or more often grabbing due to dirty clutch plates This problem was easily cured and I will explain how but first a little more background This was back in the days of the chopper In those days most bikers would take everything off the bike that it didnt need to go faster And then throw these parts over the fence into the neighbors yard Some of the more thrifty bikers squirreled those parts away in their garage attics and are now selling them for a nice profit to other old timers who have decided they now want to put their old harleys back to stock Back then it was common to run an open belt drive and a kick-starter This meant you would take off your inner and outer primary covers and your electric starter and the original chain primary drive Plus with out the electric starter you could run a smaller battery All this weighed about a hundred pounds And could be replaced by an open belt drive that weighed about fifteen pounds The open belt drive was just two pulleys one on the engine crankshaft and the other was a pulley and a clutch hub in one
