    Hi all,
    I'm new to this bike engine stuff. I'm cheating a bit and have a bike with new engine fitted delivered.
    I have been advised to lube the crankshaft and gears, use octaine boost cleaner for 1st tank. Then after 1st tank used adjust the clutch.
    I don't really own any tools at the moment & don't know how to do any of this!
    I would like to know how to get to Crankshaft (& how to rekognise it!) and same with gears...then do I just spray WD40 over them?
    Then also how do I adjust the Clutch?

    Hope some one can put this in laymans terms
    Cheers,
    Goldy

    Some of that just makes no sense. The crankshaft will be lubed by a healthy fuel oil mix. I think they MAY be talking about the crankshaft output gear and the flywheel/clutch gear. WD-40 simply will not do. Take the right cover off (aka clutch cover), and put a toothpaste single brushing dab of sticky grease on top of where the large and small gear mesh.

    Octane boost? No - don't waste your money.

    Clutch is adjusted also inside the cover, I'm in a bit of a hurry right now, but find Norman's long post on the clutch. Basically, remove cover, remove tiny screw and turn flower nut in to get more engagement out for less......

    Ride it, break it in and if you need any adjustments, just ask around here and someone will definitely help.
