    Is your clutch cable properly adjusted?

    Question: Do the XJ700 & XJ700X use the same transmission?

    Yes. With the exception of some potential gear ratio changes (I can’t think of any offhand) all of the shaft driven XJs use the same transmission.

    Good info, thanks. K, do you have a recommendation where to find a new performance clutch set for these transmissions?
