Question about 2007 Yamaha YZF-R1
Check your owners manual under maintenance for a description of how to adjust clutch lever "free play".
There is an adjusting knurled nut or adjusting nut (looks like a small sprocket) at the clutch lever... turning it clockwise will decrease the tension.. you probably need to turn it anti clockwise..Toward you as you sit on the bike to increase the tension.. remember there is only so much adjustment available... before you will need a new clutch.. Tinkering with this adjustment a few times in the driveway should help.. up to a point.
If you can't take up the slack this way.. you will have to loosen the lock nut at/near(the one at the end furthest from the termination point) to the the clutch and adjust (the adjusting nut is the one closest to the termination at the clutch) it at that end of the cable.. turn this adjusting nut toward the engine to decrease free play or tighten.. or away from the motor/anti clockwise to provide more free play) then readjust the lever end.. you basically want to remove the slop from a wearing clutch and stretched cable.
Nice bike.. enjoy.. ride safe
Best of luck
