No, shouldn't have to tighten the cable. By tightening the cable, you are disengaging the clutch which will cause the problem you are having.

If it is an new 05, take it back to the dealer. Don't screw around and void your warranty.

How many miles?

Justed started out of the blue?

Do you do a lot of burn outs?


Just trying to get a little more info to help diagnose your problem. Try and give as much detail about your problem and history. It will help cut down on someone having to post a question to you, then wait for you to respond, then them think about it, then post another question, etc.

if the engine is reving but the bie is not movinh accordingly, then your clutch is slipping, the only other thing that would cause that is the chain slipping, and that would make a ton of noise. probably just a poorly adjusted clutch unless you have really been abusing it.( wheelies & burnouts)
SV clutches can take a lot of abuse, I slip mine a lot for low speed riding and got 102k out of my original clutch

Yes, mine did it too (on my 03). There are three places you can adjust it. When you take off the front sprocket cover and do the adjustment there, that should fix you up. E-mail me if you'd like a scan out of the book.

What was the verdict? Just inherently bad clutches or something to promoted it's premature failure? Kinda curious about this myself.

I hadn't heard anything about '05 clutches being faulty until this, I know some gixxer's are having a bad time with them on '05-'06's. Anyone else here having this problem?
