Lever (1) disengages the clutch. It features a dial
adjuster (2) for lever distance from the twistgrip on
handlebar. The lever distance can be adjusted
through 10 clicks of the dial (2). Turn clockwise to
increase lever distance from the handgrip. Turn the
adjuster counter clockwise to decrease lever
distance. When the clutch lever (1) is operated, drive
from the engine to the gearbox and the drive wheel
is disengaged. Using the clutch properly is essential
to smooth riding, especially when moving OFF.
Set clutch lever when motorcycle is stopped.
Using the clutch properly will avoid damage to
transmission parts and spare the engine.
The engine can be started with the side stand
down and the gearbox in neutral. If starting with a
gear engaged, pull in the clutch lever (in this case the
side stand must be up).
