So I just wanted the clutch lever to engage a little earlier, so I adjusted it at the lever and down by where the cable meets the engine. Now, I can't get the bike into 1st or 2nd without stalling! I fire up the bike in neutral, but when I shift it stalls.

I've been playing with the two bolts where the cable meets the engine and have tried with both it tight and loose, neither will shift without stalling.

Once again, my bike is not working....

Thanks guys!

Go figure, now it works. I guess the bike just needed to be rolled a little more.

Try turning the clutch lever adjuster on the handlebars out so more of the adjuster shows.

YES that takes some of the play out and lever wont hit grips and will move the clutch and it should work better

Make sure there is a small amount of freeplay in the lever on the engine or it's possible for the clutch to slip and ultimately burn up.
