I made the mistake of taking off the clutch Handel. and the pulling off both pieces that allow for clutch adjust. Now after massively fiddling and doing lots of research i till can get the clutch tension correct let alone get the get the bikie out of gear. Prev to removing level the clutch worked perfectly. If any one has any tips, instructions, or pictures It would help a ton, Bike 2001 YZ 426. Thanks in advance
