Default Re: I've created a monster...leave the internal clutch spring alone!

Absolutely - I even feel bad for asking earlier. And I ended up not needing to mess with mine (yet ) Tighter is not necessarily better.

"...........(nothing should)..... be done until you have a full knowledge of the clutch assembly in these engines." AMEN. I recently found out how few people have a FULL understanding of how this clutch works (self included)

I think the easiest GOOD thing you can do AFTER you've done all the external clutch adjustments is to assure the clutch pads float FREELY in the "holes" - because if these ain't happenin' you ain't got but half-a-clutch! It's so easy to do and makes such a HUGE difference, it really should be one of those new bike check things....
