Clutch Adjustment on a Harley

Always do clutch adjustments on a cold bike.

Keep in mind that your clutch should start to grab at least an inch from the bar to achieve full disc separation for smooth shifting.

Open derby cover. Collapse the adjuster cable sleeve completely. Pull the clutch lever all the way against the bar and hold it there. Turn in the pushrod adjuster bolt (you are still holding lever against the bar) until you feel the lever move away from the bar. Non turn the bolt back until the lever is touching the bar again and then yet another half turn before you lock it.

Cable free play should be adjusted to 1/16".

That's it.

Don't forget to put your derby cover back on.
