Re: clutch adjustments
The flower nut is used to adjust the area or span of engagement, not tension.
If your clutch is slipping, tuen the flower nut back out to where you started, clean the pads as suggested above and finish them off with a shot of carb cleaner or brake cleaner. Then make sure your cable stop is just not too tight as xlite says. If it still slips, you will need to adjust the collar inside the case (easy, takes about 15 minutes).
