Clutch Operation Inspection


At this time, the release lever should have the proper angle shown.

60° [B]

If the angle is wrong, check the clutch and release parts for wear.

WARNING

Too much cable play can prevent clutch disengagement and cause an accident resulting in serious injury or death. When adjusting the clutch or replacing the cable, be sure the upper end of the clutch outer cable is fully seated in its fitting, or it could slip into place later, creating enough cable play to prevent clutch disengagement.
