  3. Heavy clutch on Transalp 650

    Transalp
    Afternoon. My first post here. Just acquired a scruffy 2002 Transalp 650. However, all seems reasonably sound with history etc. However, clutch seems very heavy, even with new cable. Before I dismantle, any thoughts please? Perhaps just bunged up with crud from the past 36,000 miles?

    Transalp
    TA 650 (probably applies to all models though) For anyone thinking of doing this..on the 650 its a bit of a job. The Haynes manual says you just "attach the lower end of the new cable to the upper end of the old cable, and just pull the cable through", yeah, right. What it fails to mention...
