Not sure it this is in the right section.

Heres my problem. I was ridding the quad and when I went to pull the clutch in to down Shift their was no pressure.

Thought it was the clutch cable, but not 100% on that. Not to sure if the cable i go was the right one. (Its almost 3in longer than the stock one)

I pulled the clutch apart today. The fibers and steals look fine. Their was enough fibers to catch a finger nail on.

Really not sure what the problem could be. Any information would get greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Quad info 2000 honda 400ex.

It doesn't really matter how long the cable is, as long as there's the same amount of cable sticking out of the cable housing.

You can't really tell how worn the fiber discs are by looking at them. You have to measure them with calipers.

At the time that you noticed the problem, was the ATV still pulling? If so, then the fiber discs are probably fine. When you changed the clutch cable, was the old cable broken? If so, then you didn't need to pull the clutch apart.

When I noticed the problem I was ridding the quad, Shifted find threw 3rd gear. went to pull the clutch in to down shift for a turn and had no pressure.

The cable was not broken, didn't know if the cable would be streched so I got a new one.

Could it be the lifter clutch Pin??
Yes, it's possible. Check to see if it's worn or broken.

This is the only picture of one that I could find. I've never seen one of those break, but it would seem logical that it would break in the area that has the smallest diameter.

Are you saying that the part that I have circled is gone? If so, I would say that's the problem.

You're saying the part below the line in the picture below, is gone, right? If so, that's the problem.

Yep, 9ft-lbs. Sounds like you torqued yours right.
