Clutch Issues

Im having trouble getting my clutch to work, theres just not enough travel in it. I've bled the line, no difference, Ive had the cylinder reco'd no difference. Now im hunting for an adjustable pushrod, anyone know if these exist or where to find one?

You possibly have the wrong height throwout bearing carrier. I too needed an adjustable pushrod years ago for my toploader. I just got some old pushrods, and cut to the correct size, and just rounded the end. It worked fine.

Re: Clutch Issues

The hydraulic lines can be a pain to bleed sometimes.

I just use a high tensile bolt and cut it to length, then round the ends like xdclevo mentioned. You'll probably only need one about 5mm longer. If required make another one +5mm. Make sure that the clutch releases though, you don't want excessive pressure on the fork (with clutch released) causing the throwout bearing to constantly engage the clutch diaphragm.

You mentioned "cylinder" has been reco'd.......was that the master and slave?

If the piston seal in the slave cylinder (small one on the bellhousing) is worn it can inhibit you from getting full extension of the clutch pushrod.

Just another option if you still have troubles.
