Got_Poi? Posted May 5, 2006 Share Posted May 5, 2006 Just to make sure I understand this right. Now with 12mm on the knurled nut at clutch lever set. I am to adjust the clutch for 7mm of freeplay at the hand clutch level using the 10mm bolt on back of transmission (after unlocking the 13mm bolt). My question is the definition of freeplay. This freeplay - would it be defined as hand lever 7mm depressed and the clutch disengages (or starts to). The clutch lever still has fair amount of tension throughout it's travel when depressed from start and the 7mm is minutely definable through tension differences. Or is there a freeplay before this happens that I should be looking for. Where the lever would have an actual "slackness" before the above defined 7mm. So for example a clean shift would require depressing the clutch hand lever a ways beyond the 7mm for it to disengage clutch. My airhead was the latter and easilly adjusted (airhead specs) . My oilhead I still question whether I have it right. Link to comment
