Default Re: Clutch pull lever

I had the same problem where locking the clutch lever did not fully disengage the clutch. I adjusted the clutch and now it is fine. Clutch is fully disengaged when lever is locked. But now it slips just a little when engaged. To cure this I wonder if you could shorten the clutch lever a little. That is just a suggestion for others who experience the slippage. I actually prefer it to slip a little. Heres why...When I peddle and release the clutch the kick-back used to be very rough and makes getting it started look really uncoordinated and also makes it very difficult for an inexperienced rider to get it started. But with just a little slippage now, if it does not start properly, instead of stopping on a dime and trying to throw me over the handlebars, instead, the clutch slippage makes for a none painful experience.
