Ok, I posted in the tech section but got no response. Hopefully somebody could help me...

Basically I'm a new rider. I took my MRC and got my license in the last week. I bought a 2006 M620 a few weeks ago and finally got to try it out today. I had no problem with the cable clutch in the 250 I was riding in the MRC but in my monster its a whole different ballpark. I have to let the clutch out a good 1/2 to 3/4 of the way before I hit the friction zone. I'm having such a hard time with damn 1st gear. Like I said, had no problems before. Can someone please let me know if their's any adjustment to the clutch I can do or if this is normal and I just need to practice to get used to it.

Sorry for the dumb question but any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks...

yah an adjustable clutch lever would help, I have a m900ie S that came with an adjustable clutch lever and I was in the same boat until i adjusted the lever to pick up the quickest now it engages fairly quickly.

I found several good eBay products (see below); but, as fun as these look, can't you just adjust your clutch with a screw driver (see below)?

Adjusting the stock levers would be great, since I was looking at the same thing, but they put that anti-tamper type stuff in the adjustment slot. Is there an easy way to get this junk out, or do you just need to pick away at it with the screwdriver?

You could try a little heat ( carefully) or a dremel tool with a small grind wheel or bit. You could also line up a screw driver and tap it lightly. I have not done this however, so do at your own risk.

Report on your results. It does not look like there would be enough adjustability to make a difference. I could be wrong...it happens.
