    When the clutch lever is out it is engaged or disengaged?

    When I pull the clutch lever it's suppose to disengage the clutch right?

    How do I get it to push the clutch lever out when I PULL the clutch handle in?

    Can someone please post some detailed pictures?

    Does this help, KiDD?

    you're sitting in the rider's position looking down. When you squeeze the clutch handle with your left hand that lever is supposed to move to your RIGHT. This is the dis-engaged position. (no drive)

    When you let the clutch handle go that lever should move to your left. This is the engaged position. (you now have drive)

    The cable pulls that lever and the lever moves back toward the left when the cable is no longer pulling.
