Clutch Adjustment

After feeling a little tugging from the engine while pulling on the clutch at a stop light, and not feeling any play when the clutch was out, I decided to try and adjust it.

Now I can't get my bike in first gear without the engine stopping immediately (clutch lever pulled). I.E Bike off, in neutral, start bike, pull clutch lever, pop in first gear (clutch lever still pulled), bike dies.

Can someone please walk me through how to properly set and adjust my clutch lever and clutch cable so I can get back out on the road?

All steps and expert tips and tricks are requested to make this thread a good howto guide for future reference.

First rule of clutch adjusting...

Make sure the freakin kick stand is up. ****ing idiot. LOL

For everyone else,

top adjustment screw goes all the way in.

Adjust bottom nuts for a little play on the leverl.

Easy Peasy.
