Default Re: First Build (Underway in less than a week!)

This is how I adjust the clutch on my builds:

Lock the clutch lever and remove the flower nut locking screw. Press down on the clutch disk(the one with the three holes) ,and turn the flower nut until it is tight, then loosen it a little bit so that there is slight play in the disk. You should be able to turn the disk by hand. Release the clutch lever and you will see that the disk gets pulled in real tight against the pucks.
Reinstall the flower nut locking screw.

There will always be resistance when the clutch is engaged, because the 10 tooth gear and some of the clutch internals will still turn with the rear wheel even with the clutch disengaged.
