Clutch Adjustment and Noise

Is there any adjust you can make to the clutch other than at the handlebars? Sometimes I have to pull the clutch in and out when down shifting to get it back in first gear. Sometimes when shifting from first to reverse i have to ease the clutch out to let it slide into reverse. While idling there is also alot of noise coming from behind the clutch cover. Has anyone experienced this?

Yes, you can adjust on the left side of the engine where the linkage goes into the case. Having to mess with the clutch for non moving gear changes is pretty normal. What kind of noises are you hearing? Just a chunking gear noise when it finally goes in?

I don't know about the rest of your post, but you should have to let the clutch out just a bit for reverse to engage. Not all the way just a tad normally

Normal to have to let the clutch out a tad, especially when sitting still.

The chattering noise from what I have done and another post is the bearing in the center of the basket is a loose fit from new. I believe (from another post) that there is an updated bearing that is a better fit.
I'll try and find the post and check else where to verify this.
