im glad it worked out for you. what impresses me is that this clutch is perfect for the off-roader, and IMO, is perfect for MX. now thats versitile.

Did your dragging issue cure itself or is it still there?
I have always had slight dragging issues at idle with this bike. I started with the Gen I and have gone through all revisions up to the Gen III. It's only at idle and not really that big of a deal since the clutch has always worked well when riding it. Al has always done the install on my bike (Rekluse is here in town) and the clearance has always been on the tight side. I'm going to check it again before the big Moab ride in two weeks.

If you manually push the arm towards disengaged, does it move at all, and if so, does this help with the dragging?

as far as the gap is concerned, im not checking mine until i feel excessive slippage. ive never had any luck with the 3rd gear brake test.
my clutch makes a whirring sound in the bottom of the gear (normal) and makes a horrible chatter when taking off from a dead stop or if im in the wrong gear. but that is caused by my gearing.

trust me, you'll know when its slipping too much. you will experience "auto clutch fade" from 5 minutes of riding around. the clutch cover is only supposed to be slightly hotter than the ignition cover.
i slip my clutch in every corner at the track, and my clutch doesnt fade a bit. but if the gap is too big it will fade within 10 minutes.
this test works for me.
