Need serious help :/

Hi everyone! I'm pretty new here, one of my brothers recommended me to try this forum out. I recently replaced the starter Clutch on my Yamaha '07 Vstar with great success, but my Clutch actuator seems either too loose or too tight if i adjust it, not the same pressure it had before when it was connected to the clutch cable. did i miss something? i'm trying to get this fixed asap since it's my only reliable transportation to work, hate to loose my job, but i'm pretty much out of options .... been fixing this bike for nearly now 23 days ... ugh ... any tips, instructions or help of any kind would be great!

Zack, go to subforums, then motorcycle models. You'll find the VStar section listed there. Good luck with the bike!

When you say "seems either too tight or too loose" are you meaning that the clutch either does not engage fully or it's slipping depending on the adjustment? If that's the case you may be making the same mistake I did. The instructions say to turn the center screw using a screwdriver until you feel it stop, Then back it out a tad I believe. Well the touch is so light I could not feel it hitting the stop while using a screwdriver. I ended up turning it with my fingers. With that I could clearly feel it stop and have had no more issues. Hope this helps and I hope we are talking about the same thing.
If you still need help do like the others suggested and start a thread here...V Star - Star Motorcycle Forums: Star Raider, V-Max, V-Star, Road-Star Forum

Thank you! I just got home from work, did my research, found out the names of the part, the "push rod" that connects from engine to clutch lever actuator... Is it supposed to feel loose or springy? To me it feels like it slips out too easily, and if I push it in it goes in but nothing seems to push it out, just feels like the Rod hit a wall and it's unable to further go deeper in the engine ... I know I'm missing an adjustment don't know what, but will try it your way for sure see how it feels ... Wish me luck, hopefully it's the same thing . ..

Well I followed the instructions ... Still the same ... The rod itself (which is quite long) has no pressure at all, I believe that perhaps the Rod is supposed to push outward so when I pull the clutch, the lever pushes the adjuster against the rod , correct? As far as I can tell, that rod goes in but does not come out ... Am I missing something? I know it may be simple but I just cannot figure it out

the rod goes thru the engine. it contacs the pressure plate, you would not be able to press it with your finger. the end of the ror that you are able to see has a slot in it for a screwdriver. and a lock nut. loosen the locknut then you can turn the rod.
