Yes, inner cable just refers to the wire cable... inside the sheath or outer cable.I saw that in the manual. What's the "inner cable tip"? The clutch cable?
One thing I don't understand is that if rotating the lever on the case is pushing the push rod, then if I push it hard enough (regardless of the position of the lever or cable adjustment) then the clutch should release right?
I think it should release if nothing stops you from turning far enough. If the shaft is way off the alignment, that might make the difference.
Did the clutch work before the stator job?
