I did turn the pinned weel there clockwise is that a problem?

I can seem to shift without holding the clutch

And one of the last things I wondered as a side thing, is there suppose to burn a light on the dash when the normal lights are on? Not the hibeam but the normal one, because I think my light bulb is broken if thats the case.

Sounds like you did it right. If the clutch isn't working, could be someone had the release arm installed one or two notches off to correct a stretched cable. Not sure.

The adjustment at the hand lever can take up slack in the cable, turn it counter-clockwise to tighten the cable if needed. If more adjustment is needed, the lower adjustment by the frame can make larger adjustments.

Are you talking about the white "headlamp" light? That means there's a problem with the headlight if it's lit.

Sorry that was the same picture as before just added the arrow to show what i turned. i turned it clockwise about 20x 360degrees. Is this a problem? Its off the bike atm and still need to install it

Maybe I found the problem though. Do i have to connect the cable to something? becouse its only connected to the hand clutch and the thing with the arrow on the picture.

Also never mind the dashlight then thats working fine then.

Turn the shaft clockwise as far as it will go. Then put the arm back on.

The cable only connects at those two places.

Yep, that's the clutch actuator rod. Got to pull the bevel gear off and slide it back in.

Okey i put it back in and turned the weel clockwise untill it stopped, then put the arm back on. But the arm always seem to be pulled back by something.

Haha i really have no clue how to fix this. Do i need to use the bolt in the middle of the cable to loosen or tighten it? What do you think?

I'm not clear on what's happening here. Don't think there should be any tension on the arm until the hand lever is pulled.

What does the hand lever feel like when you pull it?

I wouldn't change the cable adjustment any more until we figure out what's going on with the arm. Can you download the manual and review the installation of the actuator rod and bevel gear?

I have installed those correctly, I'm 99% sure. When i pull the clutch handle and let it go it wont pop back by itself.

Ill check the service manual

I have a strong feeling there is too much tention on the cable without pulling the clutch

Can't be tension on the cable if the lever won't return by itself. It sounds like the actuator rod isn't actually pushing the clutch.

Doesn't the rack inside the bevel gear have to be in a certain position before the bevel case goes back on?

The shaft on the release arm rotates and moves the rack inside the bevel gear case, the rack pushes the actuator rod into the clutch. It's a rack and pinion setup.
