Clutch Cable to Tight-Lever Install

Hello-
Im installing new levers on my 2001 RG. I got the old clutch lever off and i have adjusted the cable to give me slack. I barely got the old one of because it was so tight. Now i cant put the new lever on because of this. Even with the lever off i dont have enough from the cable covering to the end of the cable to slide it through the slot on the control.

thank you

If you don't have enough cable you will have to adjust it from the derby cover and then do the complete re-adjust procedure.

So I'm going to have to take the transmission cover off and then buy new tranny oil and seal?

But if the new levers are just stock replacements, there shouldn't be a need to dive into he tranny end of the cable.

No, I think EODHOG was referring to the adjustment made at the clutch adjuster screw. It's located behind the clutch inspection cover ie. derby cover.
