Used Eliminator 600: Good. Original owner clutch replacement: Bad
So hello, brethren of the kawasaki ilk, I just got a heck of a deal on a a really nice eliminator but, like most things in life, its perfect but for one pretty significant flaw. The clutch was replaced by the owner before me and it moves back about 1" before it gets very hard to pull and eventually stops approx .5 of full clutch travel (in my experience). It will shift in and out of neutral and 1st gear but no others. With that limitation its pretty damn useless... I was going to take it to the bike shop today as I am fairly incompetent but my incompetence is only matched by my current brokenness. I have a friend that is fairly proficient at mechanics and I was thinking about bribing him with beer and a useless but attractive sister in law into helping me.
Before I get too excited, any ideas what that could be, what parts I should start looking for and avenues to start looking down? Should I strap it to my pickup and drag it to the shop? Help me....
Thanks, and A+ on a hell of a nice site here. I have a zr7 that has benefited greatly from your sage advice. I just joined, advancing from a lurker to a dumb question askerer (?) and hopefully soon I shall be a answerer... (?)
Anywho, Salutations and thanks in advance from your broke compatriot with a broke bike..
P.s. anyone live in the Willamette Valley and want to make some cash fixing this? I kinda had an eye on the sister in law myself, so wouldnt mind keeping that in reserve....
