Question about 1981 Suzuki GS 650 GT
Which way do I turn the adjuster on the lever and how do I adjust on the motor?
Adjust clutch cable and "lifting mechanism",,, Loosen locknut on the adjuster SCREW ( gain access by removing the "plug" loctaed the furtherest to rear on left hand side of crank case, looks like a "cap" with a slot in it) and rotate screw IN untile you feel it lightly touch end of pushrod....now turn screw OUT 1/4 to 1/2 turn , then tighten the lock nut...... then use two wrenches to loosen the locking nuts on clutch cable, adjust so there is 4mm / 0.16 inches of free play when you slightly pull the clutch lever ..the measurement is placed at the gap of clutch handle and lever base where you see the cable attached into the handle....tis slight free play is to make sure the clutch is not "tight" engaged all the time.....when you lightly pull on lever watch the adjusting lock screw it will slightly rise...if you can not see it then place one finger on it as you pull lever. ck out pg 20 of manual at http://tinyurl.com/2cua6ak for clutch adjust, and pg 58 for cam chain adjust, and pg 78 to see blowup pic of clutch and adjuster
