Clutch lever (fig. 12)
When you pull in the lever (1), you will disengage the
engine from the gearbox and therefore from the driving
wheel. Using the clutch properly is essential to smooth
riding, especially when moving off.
Using the clutch properly will avoid damage to
transmission parts and spare the engine.
It is possible to start the engine with side stand
down and the gearbox in neutral. When starting the bike
with a gear engaged, pull the clutch lever (in this case the
side stand must be up).
