Re: Adjust Motorcycle Clutch Cable
Usually there are 2 adjustment points. One at the clutch lever, and one on the clutch pull on the crankcase. Follow the cable from the handlebars to the engine, there should be an adjust bolt or two. The adjustment at the handlebar lever is usually a screw with a thumbwheel lock nut. Depending on what you are trying to adjust, dictates which one you will use and in what direction it will go. If the clutch is slipping, use the thumbwheel adjuster. Loosen it, back the screw out 2-3 turns, tighten. and check you clutch. if this one is all the way out, go to the crankcase, loosen the bolt on the richt side of the bracket first, then loosen the left one, one turn at a time, checing the clutch. once it's where you want it. tighten the right bolt only. You can do this with a set of open end or box wrenches. An adjustable wrench works in a pinch.

Take the motorcycle for at least a fifteen minute test
drive. Use this time to determine if the clutch needs to "grab" more or
less. For example, if you pull in the clutch lever and it is difficult
to shift, it grabs too much. On the other hand, if when you let the
clutch lever out the motorcycle is low on power, it is not grabbing
Set the motorcycle on its kickstand or, if like some dirt
bikes, it does not have one, prop it against a solid object so that it
will not fall over while being worked on.
Loosen the clutch cable if the clutch needs to "grab" more,
via the clutch cable adjuster bolts near the crankcase, until there is a
small amount of play in the cable. You should be able to move the
clutch lever just slightly with no change in the clutch's actuation.
Tighten the clutch cable if you need the clutch to "grab"
less. Tighten the cable until there is only a small amount of play left
in the cable. Pulling the lever from now on will make a much larger
difference in clutch actuation.
Tighten the clutch cable adjusters near the crank case and
take the motorcycle for a test ride in an open, private area. While
riding, use your left hand to adjust the barrel adjuster where the cable
housing meets the clutch lever to fine tune the adjustments made
previously. When you feel the clutch is set up properly, return to your
work area and tighten the barrel adjuster stop so that it will not
loosen as you ride.
