    hi all , just bought this little project, 1991 only 10,000 miles. cable clutch, only problem is with the clutch lever fully pulling in, only release a very small amount and she's away, can there be any adjustment to give a bitting point a bit further away maybe 1/4 to 1/2 way through the lever travel?? anyone know.

    Nice bike Malcolm :cool:
    Isn’t there an adjuster at the lever end of the cable? Let’s see a picture of it mate. :)

    Great bike @Malcolm Woods I had one similar, there should be adjustment at the handle bar as already mentioned, you could also adjust clutch, use the manuals provided by @freck

    this will be an adjustment at the clutch leaver as stated ,most bikes also have an adjuster down on the motor where the clutch cable pulles in the clutch if you can't get enough adjustment you have a streached cable
