Adjusting the Clutch on Honda Rancher 350

If you own a Honda Rancher 350, keeping it running smoothly is crucial. The clutch is one of the most important components, controlling power flow from the engine to the rear wheel. This guide will walk you through how to adjust your clutch step by step.

Tools Needed

Before beginning, make sure you have:

  • A motorcycle manual transmission service tool set

  • A socket wrench (usually a 12mm or 16mm)

  • A torque wrench

  • A new clutch cable

Steps to Adjust Clutch

  1. Drain the oil from the bike to identify any leaks and ensure the oil is clean and fresh.
  2. Remove the old clutch cable by loosening the bolt, pulling out the cable, and replacing it with the new one.
  3. Adjust the tension of the new clutch cable by pulling on the lever until it feels tight but not too stiff.
  4. Reinstall the old clutch cable and test the clutch by shifting gears to make sure it feels smooth and responsive.


  • The recommended oil change interval for a Honda Rancher 350 is every 3,000 to 4,000 miles.
  • Adjusting the clutch on your own can be done with basic tools and knowledge, but it’s important to follow the steps carefully and consult a manual if needed.
