If you have to rely on someone to adjust a clutch cable, sell the bike now.


Start at the perch (the handlebar adjustment) You should have about a nickel's width of free play between the back side of the lever and the perch. That's it.

I would start at the bottom end of the cable and adjust that to spec. Typically, you will want very little free play at the lower end. Once that is adjusted properly, then adjust the free play at the lever.

A manual is worth the money.
