PostSubject: Help with clutch - C50   Sat Feb 25, 2012 1:43 am

Hey all! So, I just replaced my clutch and brake levers on my 2006 c50. Went well except now my clutch feels like it's not engaging until almost the end of the lever's swing. Did I screw something up?! How can I get my friction zone to be further bacck, like centered in the lever's swing?

Thanks for any help!

Wendy there are two points for adjustment on the clutch. As you have just fitted it yourself you it will be easy, just adjust the main one which is behind the head a little more, the adjustment at the hand lever end is just for fine adjustment.

Mr I means where the clutch cable goes in to the engine casing Wendy, just behind the cylinder barrel.

There's a link in the Maintenance Section of this site under

Maintenance Manuals, Links & PDFs - Library.

Just scroll down to the "Clutch Adjustment" heading, click on it and you'll be redirected to a site where you can download a pdf which will give you a step by step guide with pictures of what to do.

Hope this is of help love, good luck with it
