PostSubject: Oh for a more progressive clutch...   Tue Sep 08, 2015 1:29 pm

My clutch seems to be in or out, seemingly only using the last 20% (max!) of lever travel to engage and disengage. Is it possible to adjust it to make it more progressive. (Lot's of hills where I live and I ride in commuter traffic a fair bit too - would love a more gradual clutch action!).

Is this an easy enough job for a non-mechanic?

Tips welcome!

Thanks,

Paul.

(It's a 2010 8v).

If it's only operating in the last 20% of travel it probably needs the plunger on the handlebar lever adjusting.

Thanks Pete - that doesn't sound too complicated.

I cocked my clutch adjustment up when changing to new levers.

There are threads on here detailing the plunger removal from the lever and the little grub screw that holds it in. Normally, this has been secured with locktite or similar. I had to stick my whole lever in the oven to get that to liquify before getting the grub screw out. Some have come loose on the bike and the plunger has rotated and altered the operation of the clutch - so thats a good first check.

My thread here - help as usual from more experienced members here! Hope you get it sorted. Smile
