    To break the mainshaft you really had to be thumping on it. Along with some excessive heat.

    It was just a weak point..ive only seen them break where the threads end not anywhere else like you had mentioned.

    And I can only recall a maybe 5-10 that actually broke on this forum. I'm sure there's more but those numbers are low. Now bearings and crap and play in the mainshaft that has been way too many to count. Some people have had luck Raywood had 90k no rebuild, Blacktopper had 60k without issues. I think part of the issue to is that clutch hub nut coming loose if that walks out so doesnt the mainshaft. Beats the hell out of the bearings as the whole clutch assembly just wobbles around.

    My trans has been quite smooth for as long as I've had my mastiff (2011), I guess it musta been built on a Wednesday, not a drunk Friday or hungover Monday..:oldlaugh: no major issues with it so far, biggest expense was ESC , and I only put that in because I couldn't stand having the rats nest of wires with the PDM..

    What makes you think that? If you need to adjust your clutch cable often then it's possible , you can also pull inspection cover and make sure the chain and gear doesn't move around excessively

    I don't know what to call it other than I have some play in my shifter and my clutch will kill your hand at long red lights bc the bike rarely goes into neutral if it's running.

    Try adjusting cable first should be a dime space between lever and hand control if that doesn't work adjust the clutch rod I've never done it maybe someone will chime in and explain how it isn't very hard

    You still have stock big dog levers?

    I only ask because when Kel was here he was adjusting his clutch and it was flopping around like a dead fish, I kept telling him he needed to keep tightening it and low and behold it was slack in the lever. Was too tight and harder than hell to pull too. But you couldn't tighten it enough for to the worn bushing. It's his Harley controls the bushing was worn and also the leverage was less than what was on stock big dogs.

    On my bike after I do half pull it just falls into place not hard to hold it at a light can do it with two fingers.
