I purchased a center push rod that measured 10.8125 (96-538) and I couldn't get my clutch to adjust. My clutch lever sat at mid posn on the bars and looked as though I needed another 3/4" to 1" of adjustment. Im thinking with my setup the center rod should be longer. So I call Jireh Cycle to get some clarity and they had no clue which one to get.

Anyone have experience with this and what length rod to get.

Thanks for any help!!
I know this is an old thread but I have the EXACT PROBLEM you have with the EXACT set up. Chain drive rear. Been having problems adjusting clutch since I installed it a while ago. Did you ever figure out what length worked? I have the 10" rod also. thanks!

I bought the pushrod from them. The table gives the length and oem reference for harley years.
Pushrod, Clutch 37088-90 OEM 37088-90 SKU 96-538
Look, if the pushrod was short, the adjustment bolt would disappear inside the pressure plate.
If you touch down and there are threads remaining for the gam nut, the length is ok.

Something else, I think something minor is going on.

Again,has clutch ever worked well? If yes, it contradicts the notion that the pushrod is wrong.
Don,t compare yourself to the other guy...take the steps I have suggested you, take off the ramp cover look inside, see if the ramp is ok...etc.
I will find the problem there, not in the net search engine.

Then adjusted at the cable and got it to adjust!! Looks like the ramp needs to be positioned right and then go from there. Thanks all for the help.
never mind I see how you fixed it. Thanks anyway.

Dude I did what you said. Took the clutch cable side off the tranny. The ramp ramp snap ring had for some reason wiggled in a position to allow the ramp to get jammed up. It was allowing it to move forward but not all the way back. Re-moved the ring and re-seated everything. Worked like new. I also took a file to the plates and clutch basket. Its working but I know eventually I will probably have to spring for a new one but for now its gravy. Thanks so much man! And every one that contributed!

Glad you fixed it.
I knew that and That exactly what I meant and the other dude had exactly the same issue.

The ramp should sit home before any adjustment can be made and move freely all the way. The snap ring should sit facing with it,s sharp side out( the smooth side rides against the ramp)- so there,s no friction

When it works like that,you have fully articulated throw of the push road and that 1/4 move.
By the ways, ultima recommends 1/8 -1/4 turn out on the adjustment bolt from touch down, that gives you all the benefits.
Cheers, dude.

I’m sorry to revive an old thread - just have a quick question

I’m in the same exact position where I need the clutch push rod - in this thread there are multiple part numbers mentioned and I’m lost at to which one I need-
I have a RSD ķltima transmission.
