Clutch seems to be slipping a bit lately. Into first gear, as long as rpms are 2000 or lower, its ok, any higher and she slips a bit. If I eccel to 4000+rpm in first then shift, she sometimes slips. If I go easy its ok. On the highway, in 5th, gear down to 4th on a hill and she slips too. I figure my clutch is going and needs to be replaced, but is there anything I can check or tighten first? Could the clutch cable have anything to do with it?

There should be about half an inch free play at the pedal - if it's less you can adjust the cable - the adjustment is at the transmission end and fairly simple.

Hey thanks, that was an easy fix for sure. Took a couple minutes, clutch seems fine now. Thanks again :)
