    A buddy and me were trying to install forward controls on my 2007 FXDL. Once the primary cover was off and majority of the clutch, we could not get the main shaft nut off. We tried everything. Feeling defeated I put everything back on. Now here is the problem. I have no tension or give in my clutch hand lever. I pull it and its nothing but freeplay. Any help would be appreciated.

    After you get your clutch readjusted, and are ready to try putting the forward controls on again. The clutch hub nut is reverse thread, clockwise to remove. Some people do not remove all of the mid control shift linkage, they just secure it out of the way. They make caps to cover where the shifter used to be. You should also use a primary locking tool. There is a lot of helpful information in the Transmission/clutch/primary section of the self help tab at the top left of the page.
