I replaced the clutch in my 2001 929RR. I acidentally didn't have the actuating rod set up right so I broke a corner off. I replaced it. But now the calbles at the lever and engine are maxed out and it drags still. the actuating rod is at a 90 degree angle to the engine. It seems as though it's not pulling the clutch enough. What else could this be? The clutch, the actuating rod, and cable are all brand new.

I haven't been into these clutches yet so I don't know if there's some common mistake with them.
About all I can think of is if the clutch basket nut is loose but you shouldn't have had to remove that to replace the clutch plates.
What was the old clutch doing that caused you to replace it?
Has it done this since you put the new clutch in or is it a new problem?
Did you thoroughly lube all the plates during assembly?
Was the clutch lifter damaged when you damaged the actuating rod?

The old clutches started to slip a little bit. But the cable was perfectly fine with the old ones though. I didn't take the basket. Whats is the clutch cam? The nipple that the clutch rod grooves into? Don't think it's damaged, but when you put the clutch together is it supposed to move in and out about a half inch? or when you take the front clutch cover off is the cam supposed to come out? Thats the only thing I can think of.

The cam is the bottom of the rod that goes down into the cover and into the groove in the lifter.
As I said, I haven't had to pull mine apart but I don't think it matters if the lifter moves as long as it rests against the bearing in the inner hub.
When you put the cover on did you align the cam into the groove in the lifter rod?
I don't understand what you mean about breaking a corner off something either.

at first i didn't have the cam lined up so when i tightend down the cover the corner of the cam snapped off so I replaced the cam. I'm pretty sure the cam and button are coupled together cause the clutch would not actuate at all if they weren't. Don't know have to pull it apart again and see if I see anything which I won't, this thing has me baffled. Seems as though everything is put together the right way.

Hi Did you find a solution to this problem?
I have had the exact same issue, even to the point of breaking the push rod due to not aligning before fitting the cover! Next step for me is to replace the steel drive plates, i am guessing they are warpped but didn't notice when the fibre plates were worn as the extra space was taken up by the warppage. Since fitting new fibre plates but with the old warpped steel plates the clutch has become too fat and when accuated there is not enough space for the fibre and steel plates to disenage. Make senese to me will let you know how i get on!
