No, CCW is the correct direction to turn the screw till slight resistance is felt, then CW 1/4 turn plus however much more CW to get the locking device in place.

I just did this tonight for the first time and it was a piece of cake.

Excellent & all bases covered,I have some slippage at high end otherwise clutch seems fine,it was mentioned it could be a stretched spring on the locking nut.???? you say at the end of your piece you have what sounds like same trouble & mention a barnett extra plate kit , can someone tell me more. If I can avoid a new clutch all the better , Thanks to all ,jimbox

what a great write up with pics. thanks. My clutch will not fully disengage. Do you think it could be adjustment. Unfortunately the harley dealer torqued my bolts on so tight I can't get the cover off yet. Working on an electric impact to fix that. I did try just a complete back out of the cable and that did not disengage the clutch... we'll see.

pcontiman,cant say why the clutch not disengaging///did happen with some warning or all at once ?? It dose not sound like a quick fix mate...Do you have a neutral??? I remember way back in the early 80s I rode a K2 honda same trouble I feel it was a easy fix , took the cover off and I think it was a broken spring right there.H ope you find your;s as easy.Good luck.
