Adjust Clutch

In all seriousness, it's pretty simple. There is an adjustment at the lever that looks like a wheel. Pull back any rubber so you can see the cable and turn the wheel so that the end of the plastic cable liner moves AWAY from the handle. This will tighten or increase the pull of the cable from one end to the other. If you find the clutch slipping when you hit the gas with the lever all the way out you went too far.


How did you do that??? ok thanks for the info

Yes probably the adjustment but if that doesn't work and the basket looks good then look at the steel plates, they should lie flat it not they are warped, so replace the warped ones.

At that point might as well replace all the plates, IMHO.

Nothing wrong with doing that, just not necessary.

Well parts came in. I ended up buying some Vavoline 4stroke oil. I put it all togother and bike seems to be running great. Didint know what I was doing but did everything from the internet. I ran it once down the street and seems good so far. Thanks

what kind of valvoline 4 stroke oil did you put in the transmission? Be VERY careful doing that, most oils are not meant for wet clutches because of anti-friction additives.

Shell Rotella is a good choice as a couple of them have the Jaso MA spec for wet clutches. Just look on the back of the bottle for JASO MA

yep, that's what I run in my 450x with a Rekluse clutch. Run it in the crankcase too.
