Clutch cable adjustment

Iíve been remiss in not checking the clutch cable free-play since the bike was new.

So when I was having a little difficulty getting the bike into first gear at first it was like: what is going on? Then shortly thereafter, while continuing my ride it occurred to me, of course, check the clutch cable free-play.

Well, the manual has a few interesting notes. It says to adjust free-play between 3-4 mm, but itís set up at the factory at 5 mm. Huh???

Anyway, mine was about 6-7, so brought it down to 3-4.

I also then checked my Scrambler (now 4.5 years old), and interestingly, it was almost tight, maybe 2-3 mm.
