Question about 2006 Suzuki Boulevard C50
Remove the rear left hand chrome engine cover. Two 8mm headed bolts hold this cover on. under it you will see a device that the clutch cable is hooked to. It has a 10mm lock nut and a phillips head adjusting screw in the center of it. Loosen the nut and turn the screw in untill light resistance is felt. Then back the screw out 1/8-1/4 turn and holding in that position lock the nut. Use the cable adjuster at the lever under the rubber boot to acieve a slight amount of free play in the lever as you begin to pull it in. A freeplay gap between the lever and the perch of about 5-6 mm is good. If all is correct internally with your clutch assembly this should take care of the dragging .

SOURCE: clutch problem or cable
I did the same upgrade with the same bike. put a 16t in front and 64t in rear, never had a problem. just more power. I did notice when the chain was to tight things werent working right. gave the chain a little slack and the bike performs great. you might want to remove the front sprocket cover and check if the end of the clutch cable is installed properly. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: no clutch pressure.
Your clutch lever should have a cable connected to it. Trace it from the lever down to the engine and make sure nothing is disconnected or out of place. That big knurled knob next to the lever is the adjusment and locknut for cable tension. Loosen lock nut, srew cable away from lever until you have only 1/4 " of play between lever and the stop. You should feel tension coming back into the lever...If you have a bicycle ,it is the same drill for adjusting your brakes...look and see...it may help you understand the process...any bicycle mech can show you...maybe a neighbor...Good Luck to you friend....Tim

Hi I am vortash sounds like you have an air flow problem check the seals ( gaskets ) around the inlet maniflod and also have your cylinders pressure tested should be between 100 t0 140 psi , and also check you tank fuel filters they may be blocked this would explain it also ( puuting the choke on makes the bike **** the fuel through harder .. especially if you have a blocked filter .. hope this helps regards Vortash ..

I've got an 06 C50. It IS a very tight work space to adjust the valves, especially the rear intake valves. To give yourself a little more working room on the rear valves, move the chrome tube (located directly above the rear covers) to the side by removing the 2 bolts that connect it to the back of the rear jug.
Remove all of the valve cover nuts and bolts BEFORE you remove the covers and BEFORE you remove the spark plugs. This prevents the potential to loose them down in the engine, which is a whole other problem.
The VoluisaRiders site has A LOT of information on how to do this, someone a few years ago created a how-to for this task with pics and is virtually step by step. That is what I use (done it 3 times so far). Also there is a method for setting the valves without using feeler gauges, making the task MUCH easier, but that is a personal preferance,
I would give it a 3 out of 5 wrenches in difficulty, so make sure you know what you're getting into before beginning.
