    Clutch Lever on Engine with little "arrow"

    Hello Guys,

    I noticed that on the engine there is a little arrow or line or some sort of indicator near the clutch "lever"
    Usually these things mean some kind of threshold or similar
    I didn't found anything in the manual, what is that about?
    I found something similar on the rear brake and that's for the "limit" is the rear brake surpass that line is probably time to change it
    But as said what about the Clutch one? I found no infos and honestly online I don't know how to search

    The arrow that you are referring to is on the clutch lifter arm - the arrow corresponds to the line that is on the engine crank case almost beneath it.

    When you compress the clutch lever, the lifter arm rotates forward or toward the front of the bike. When you are not shifting gears or using the clutch, the arrow should be resting on the line beneath.



    Where is the arrow in relation to the line?

    OK so basically:
    The Clutch "arm" moves from back of the bike to front (just to have a visual reference)
    When the clutch lever is not pulled or anything, so I am cruising or the bike is shut down and stopped, the point of the "arm" should be on the "back" of the line, when actually pulling the lever with my left hand the line should "surpass" the line
    Correct?
    Tomorrow I will check

    If you mean the one on the left side of the engine, just below where the clutch cable meets the engine, I believe it is meant for setting the clutch after install. I found a good quote from an online manual, hope it helps:

    "Push the clutch lifter arm forward as far as it will go with a finger. Turn the adjuster screw in or out with a flat blade screwdriver until the pointer on the lifter arm lines up with the index line on the top of the crankcase (above). Tighten the lock nut to specification while holding adjuster still."

    Edit: Haha, Skin Walker beat me to it. Good luck!

    Yes exactly this one
    I think the arrow of the "arm" should be in the free play zone right? and then pulling the lever clutch it should "surpass" the mark on the engine, correct?

    Yes, that is correct. Right where the mark is is when the clutch springs should start to compress and the clutch start to disengage.

    It doesn't have to be exact. If it is really really close that is good enough.

    OKOK I verified and mine one is behind the mark, by 1cm at least
    I just wanted to be sure that is the right "behavior"
