    Clutch adjustment with pics

    1.Remove the left side engine cover. 4 mm hex wrench required.
    2.Remove the left side clutch cover. 10 mm socket required.
    3.Loosen the clutch cable at the engine...screw it all the way in.
    4.Loosen the clutch cable at the handlebar. screw it all the way in.
    5.Loosen the 10 mm nut holding the adjustment screw tight.
    6.Turn the adjuster bolt clockwise until you feel tension.
    7.Back that bolt out 1/8-1/4 turn.
    8.Tighten the nut back up.
    9.Reverse steps 1-2.
    10.Roughly adjust the cable at the engine until you feel SLIGHT tension.
    11.You can then fine tune your clutch adjustments at the handlebars to your liking.
    This I would rate a 2 out of 5 wrenches difficulty. Should take less then 20 minutes.

    Great write up!

    Nice, easy to follow instructions... & the illustrations are very helpful. I'm sure many will find this information useful when clutch adjustment is imminent. With the inclusion of the photos, this should definitely be considered as an addition in "Clutch" section of "Links & Tutorials".

    Thanks man!

    Your post needs to go into the sticky on top. Maybe DJ will do that. Good work and thanks.

    step 6: which one is the adjuster bolt? the 2nd and 3rd pic in post two?

    If so, is it: Loosen bolt, then tighten with screwdriver?

    You must loosen the lock nut in pic #2 in 2nd post. Pic #3 is the adjustment bolt. Turn bolt(screw driver) in until resistance is felt and then back off 1/8th turn. Hold adjustment rod in position with a screw driver and use a wrench to tighten lock nut.
    This is the same procedure as my Vstrom 650 and is easy. Also a confidence builder for DIYers.

    You should adjust your clutch 1 time per year at least.
    Slipping is the most noticeable symptom,but by then it's sometimes to late.

    Bump and an update:

    I've optimized the PDF file depicting burnchassis' illustrated guide to clutch adjustment.
    Down from 2.5Megs to 513Kb
