Slide the rubber boot away from the clutch cable adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster inward to provide as much slack in the cable as possible.

Remove the clutch inspection cover. Remove the spring and the locknut at the adjuster. Now, turn the adjuster bolt counterclockwise until it stops. Then turn it back clockwise 1/4 turn. Replace the locknut, spring and the inspection cover.

Now adjust the clutch cable adjuster outwards until you have almost no slack in the cable. Work the clutch a few times and then adjust the cable so that you have between 1/16" and 1/8" freeplay at the hand lever.

Good Luck
Steve

Slide the rubber cover off the adjustment nut on the clutch cable, loosen the lock nut adjust the cable until you have about an 1/8" play in your clutch cable at the lever. To adjust the clutch itself remove the derby cover, then the spring and retainer. Turn the post until snug and then back off a quarter to half turn, reassemble the derby cover.

High pitched squeal


It most likely is a worn brake pad. Clutch will tend to slip with out any squeal since it is a wet clutch. Try applying the front brake then the rear brake to determine which is squealing. Pads are about $45.00 per wheel, I just did mine friday.
