Re: clutch questions
my first bike, with the stock lever, the button wouldn't work. there wasn't enough "action" in it to hold it free.
that clutch was really hard to pull. to solve it, i opened up the clutch cover on the engine (the teardrop shaped one) took out the little set screw, backed the flower nut off one click, re-installed the set screw, and it worked great, much easier to pull.
they also wear in after awhile, and the lever button works.
