Sudden loss of clutch cable pressure
« on: December 10, 2019, 04:49:35 PM »
Hi relatively new to riding. Today on my commute I suddenly lost all clutch cable pressure (couldnt get out of gear). I was able to adjust the lever quite significantly and it seems fine. I am curious though what would cause this sudden loss of pressure?

Which year your bike is? Older (pre 29 bikes sometimes had a problem of the clutch actuator arm bushing/bearing falling off from their original location and let the arm go off center. This releases tension and moves the friction point from a bushing to the engine side case - resulting in loss of tension and after a while a failure of the oil ring at the top of the engine case.
More info and picture sof the clutch actuator arm and clutch side engine casing can help diagnosing the issue.
