Clutch Lever and Cable

Due to friction plate wear and clutch cable stretch over
a long period of use, the clutch must be adjusted in accor-
dance with the Periodic Maintenance Chart.
To avoid a serious burn, never touch the engine or
exhaust pipe during clutch adjustment.

Clutch Lever Free Play Inspection

Pull the clutch lever just enough to take up the free play
[A].
Measure the gap between the lever and the lever holder.
If the gap is too wide, the clutch may not release fully. If
the gap is too narrow, the clutch may not engage fully. In
either case, adjust the clutch.
