into and feel where the triangle piece is but can't
tell what holds it in place or how to remove it. It
appears that must come off to get the fork detached. I
also detatched the cluth pedal linkeages (part number
20) from the clutch pedal lever but that didn't help.
I'll take any advice or pictures someone may have.

Greg -

There is a pin through the clevis on the end of the clutch cable. That
pin has a washer on the end with the cotter pin. Remove the cotter
pin, slide out the pin from the clevis, and the cable should come
right of the triangle piece.

If you have a parts manual, look at plate #42

John

Thanks John,
I did look at the manual and searched the postings.
Just to clarify, the triangle piece does not need to
be removed correct? I did note the cotter pin at the
clevis fork, but the whole fork assembly (especially
head of the pin) is right up against frame so I can't
see how you get the pin out after removing the cotter
without getting the triangle assembly removed. Maybe
I'm over thinking it and it will magically work when I
remove the cotter pin but I don't see how.

To any and all who have replaced a clutch cable,
I'm in process of a long awaited clutch cable
replacement and am having trouble understanding how to
detach it from the triangle (pivot cam plate). Does
anyone have a clear picture from doing it or of that
area? I have the toe board out enough that I can reach
into and feel where the triangle piece is but can't

Sometimes that pin gets put in backwards (like at the factory!), you
will need to remove the linkage from the base of the clutch pedal
itself. This is a 2 piece section that goes from the clutch pedal to
the triangle piece. Removing the pin there will allow the that
entire linhage system to be removed in one piece, then you should
have the clevis and triangle in your hand. I put the pin back in the
other way allowing me to only need to remove the cotter pin to
access the clevis.
