I how do you know when you have your clutch lever adjusted properly? I know I opened myself up for some wise ass answers, but do control yourselves. Thanks

I usually adjust mine so it has about 1/8 inch of free play between the lever and the perch. Not sure but that translates to 1/2 ot 5/8ths at the end of the lever. The important thing is that there is some, and not too much that you can't fully disengage the clutch.

A rule of thumb typically gone by is that your lever be able to hold a nickel in between itself and the perch.
