    Put the cable into the clutch lever first. Make sure the barrel end is greased before insertion. Screw the cable adjuster all the way into the lever so you have maximum cable length. Then insert the end at the transmission clutch arm. It should require minimal movement of the arm to get it inserted.

    Once installed, follow the clutch adjustment procedure. Adjust the lever cable adjuster to 12 mm and then use the transmission adjuster to establish 7 mm of free play at the handlebar.
