Clutch adjustment

I have very little play in the clutch and have seen videos that say it needs some play how do i adjust? At the lever or the bottom part included is how it looks now

I always adjust at the lever. But if that isn't giving you the amount of play that you want then "go low." Just make sure you turn the adjuster at the lever back in if you slacken the lower adjuster so that you can do minor adjustments up at the lever in the future, (and that the lever adjuster mechanism doesn't vibrate completely out).

Looking at your adjuster pic, I'm with Nardo; adjust it at the lever. There should be 3/8" - 1/2" of free play at the end of the lever before resistance is felt.

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

thanks for the advice I checked my service manual too and it shows how to adjust it. I will work on it this weekend!
