Hey guys. Right now I'm working on a 1982 nighthawk 450 project. I had a seized engine, so I bought and am in the process of installing a new one. An issue I have is that the lever on the right side panel attached to the clutch cable is stuck. Off of the engine the lever on the panel (I'm not sure the technical name) can we pulled on the pivot and will move back to place with the tension of the spring. When I install it on the engine the lever has very little movement, can move a quarter of an inch maybe. Is this normal? I can't remember how it was before I took the panel off (stupid I know). I was wondering if someone could shine light on if this is how it's supposed to be, and if not how to fix it. This is probably a stupid question, but I'm pretty new in the world on motorcycle maintenance and help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
