clutch spring

Hi All,

You know the seal in the front of the bike in the clutch cover that always leaks? It's the tiny seal on the shaft with the clutch lever in the front of the motor. Well, the other day I was replacing that seal and in the process I destroyed the spring on that shaft. I now have the new spring, the seal is fixed and I am ready to put it back together but I need to know the trick in setting the shaft in the right position with the propler tension on the spring. How is this done?

If its not already done, you should try to make sure the actuator arm is around the nine o'clock position for the proper travel on the clutch cable. At least I THINK thats correct. I'm sure I'd get corrected if not.
That's a function of the thickness of the wear plates and the lengths of the springs in the clutch body. It's not adjustable at the actuator.
