Clutch feel

On your 700XX with the clutch freeplay properly adjusted where does the clutch feel like it's beginning to grab or go over the center point? I'm speaking about how far in the clutch lever's travel the bike begins to have solid movement.

thanks

I'm most interested in where the bike starts moving solidly forward, not so much when it starts to engage. I hope this makes sense. The quad I bought had the clutch mis-adjusted so there was zero free play and in fact may have been slipping very little, but enough to cause a long engagement condition now. Not a huge deal to swap out the plates, but I'm curious what others report.

thanks

No one else has any input here? I'd appreciate some thoughts before I tear into the clutch on this thing.

thanks

i think its more of a rider specific thing...

one rider likes his/her clutch to grab right off the handle bar while another likes it to be out on the lever. as long as it fully releases (clutch fully engaging) with a little free play you are good to go anywhere inbetween

Thanks...mine was just horribly out of adjustment. I took it apart, cleaned the pivot points, lubed the cable and adjusted it properly and now it works right off the bar. Much better. Actually got the parking break all adjusted and working now also.
