Just bought this bike and did not check the clutch in detail when i picked it up.
It has run for 62.3 hours from new, around 15 hours since the last major checkup from what i have been told.
I noticed one of the clutch-arm bolts on the engine side was a bit loose so i tightened it up.
Now that i have the bike running on idle and press the clutch lever and kick in a gear, the bike jerks a bit and dies.
I have tried to adjust the lever both ways but it does not matter which way i turn it.
Could i have adjusted it the wrong way when i tightened the bolt on the engine?
I got it running by giving a bit of more gas than i wanted and also rolling with it a bit.
After running it for while and stopping it will not die with a gear in place, but i feel that it drags a bit.
It's also hard to get it in free gear while running, feels easier if i shut it off (not an exact science but felt like it when i stopped and tried to get it into free gear)
It was over 10 years since i rode a dirt-bike and never been much of a mechanic to begin with.
What could i start with? adjusting the cable down on the engine?
I would like not having to pull the clutch discs out as i will probably forget how to put it back again
PS. I can provide pictures if that will help.
