Clutch Free Play Adjustment
« on: February 24, 2019, 09:36:07 PM »
Has no free play in clutch lever whatsoever after getting my dealer to fit my HP levers... How should I turn the adjuster to get more free play? Manual is very confusing :006: :006: :087: :087:... See the screenshot attached.. is it red or blue?

Turn it clockwise (red) to increase free play in the cable

Clockwise looking from the cable into the perch. You need .5 to 1mm gap on the lever bits before you feel some resistance. This is with the bike cold. The gap gets much larger when the bike warms up. Keep this in mind when going back to your dealer. I would mention it to the supervisor. (as an excuse, maybe the gap was set while the engine was hot)

Trying to find a sweet spot on the clutch myself as I ride with 2 fingers was challenging.  Im going to check slack on warm up next time Im out.

Interesting.... Thought it was just me. I set it cold to approx 1mm. Noticed there is significantly more slack during/after a ride. I'll set it and stop scrutinizing it so much ! Glad to hear its "normal"
