You should have 3/8" - 3/4" of freeplay in the clutch lever. If you don't, locate the locknut at the lever and rotate adjustment wheel in or out to get the proper amount of freeplay. Tighten the locknut when finished
Start the engine, pull lever, and shift into 1st. If shifting is difficult or the bike creeps, you will have to adjust it at the clutch housing.
Turn bike off. Go back to the hand lever, loosen locknut, and turn the adjuster wheel all the way toward the hand grip. Tighten locknut.
Follow the cable down to the clutch housing and loosen the locknut and turn the adjuster in or out to get the proper amount of freeplay. Tighten locknut.
My clutch handle has too much free play, I tryied this adjustment and the handle got hard to pull, but free play is still way too much.. Clutch isn't engageing untill the hand lever is almost all the way out..
I asked a bike mechanic, and he told me my clutcth needs adjusting,, He's a good mechanic, but I've tryied the adjustment.. I was hoping to do this minor repair myself.. Anyone with Any suggestion,,
Have you checked the cable? If it is worn and stretched, The P.O. might have adjusted to compensate. You can only adjust so far if a cable is stretching...I have adjusted to the proper free play and it still creeps. I backed it off and the creep got less. I think I need a better manual or else take it to a shop.
