Now whilst not wishing to "Teach Granny how to....etc." check out the approved, ie. manuf. recommendation, fulcrum to Bowden nipple dimension for this clutch operating lever, getting it wrong has huge implications regarding 'easy' to 'hard' clutch operation, worth a measure?   Huh Huh Huh Huh..Morrag

thank you all for your inout, glad to say I have a lovely clutch now, fresh build, fresh oil and it is perfect. Interesting advice from a foreign tuner, bike is on side stand for the winter, its on the opposite side from the clutch. The oil is running away from the clutch for months on end, just a thought from a Dutchman.

My "junk" xj650 had been on its side since someone had pinched the forks - maybe years, the clutch was stuck fast. cable tied the lever in for weeks, no difference, had to actually run the engine against a shed rsj before it released, still doesn't work quietly, and the cover gasket leaks like a sieve - did it dry out too?

Twas cold but sunny, so I just nipped out on and in both. Pleased with my efforts with the clutch, still dragging a bit, but it may just need a good boat.

Ha ha!
I posted that same phrase on Facebook when I still owned the bike.
Glad the clutch is working out. As you say, maybe it just needs some Springtime use now.
