Clutch Freeplay Adjustment & Takeup Point
So I've been riding the Scrambler around and I didn't really notice it until after I read through the service manual, but as delivered my clutch lever had about a half-inch or more of freeplay which of course is way out of spec (should be 2-3mm).
With a half-inch+ of freeplay, the clutch take-up point was basically right off the grip which I really liked because it made for faster starts & quicker shifting. I didn't notice anything wrong with that because it felt like the clutch on my Tiger which also engages right off the grip (though with a proper 2-3mm of freeplay).
Problem is I'm quite sure that with that much freeplay, I was not fully releasing the clutch when pulling the lever back to the grip. That equals extra heat and wear, not good.
So I adjusted the freeplay using the adjuster at the lever. Got the proper freeplay and all is well, except now when releasing the clutch, the friction point/takeup point is all the way out near the end of the lever travel, which I don't like as much. I can get used to it but it's making for some more awkward slow riding as I don't have as much fine control over the clutch with my fingers extended almost all the way.
So my question is, can I make an adjustment at the bottom adjuster (near the clutch itself) so that I can maintain the appropriate freeplay up top but that the takeup point will be moved closer to the lever? If the answer is no I don't want to screw with it but if the answer is yes I'd be willing to play around with it a bit to get it right.
