if you are sitting on your bike... the right side of the engine has a cover...five or six screws...undo that...take cover off, and you will see a nut that has about six sides to it. next to the nut is the screw. loosen the screw so you can loosen the butterfly nut. I used needle nose plyers to grab mine. once you get the butterfly nut loosened, your bike should roll...with your clutch lever in. you will have to play with it. the trick is to get it loose enough to pedal the bike...and when you pop your clutch lever...it shouold turn the engine over. once you get the (nut) set to where you need it...you need to tighten the little screw back down, so the (nut) does not move.
Where are you in Florida...Im in south FL Fort Lauderdale area
