I am a new Boss owner. I have a single speed. The hand clutch is a bear...I have replaced the cable, Booster ,mounted extra vacume bottle. I am thinking of changing the presure plate with a Center-Force. Is the alignment of the cable critical? I can see that my cable is draging on the adjustment bracket? any help would be appreciated.

Just incase you didn't see this.
I got my bike together with the centerforce clutch installed and really like it. Is is really easy to pull and enguages extremely smoooooooth. I may also have the booster lined up better. I have discovered just how critical lining the booster rod up to the cable and pedal pivot bar (or "t-Bar I call it) really is. Getting the spacers on the booster mount bracket just right as well as the up and down angle as allowed by the slotted bolt holes on that bracket is important for good plunger seal which allows the booster to push with fullest potential. I check allignment with hand clutch lever pulled to the grip while assisting this pull with pedal if engine is not running. This is the point at which you want the truest allignment.

hand Clutch

Thanks for the heads up. I will be working on the Hoss, getting it ready for Myrtle Beach. I will pay special attention to the alignment you are talking about.

Clutch

RocketMan;

Get one of those inexpensive hand pump vacuum gages from your local Autozone, or equivalent, and check for leaks.

Insert it in the hose where it attaches to the booster.

I had a couple holes in the frame where the original body work was installed. Made lots of difference after someone on one of these sites got me to check.

Ride Safe!
