Hi, Drake,
On the page of the manual showing how to adjust the clutch, there is a typical error. The dimension "A" is given as 4.0mm +/- 0.5mm (1.5748in +/- 0.1968in). The decimal point got moved in the translation. The correct dimension in inches should be 0.15748in +/- 0.01968in.

I use the mm dimensions and never noticed that. It'd be pretty dang hard to get a 1.6" gap in the clutch lever. Laughing

Thanks. I did some graphic manipulation so it is now correct. (Once I get FrontPage to upload it. Grrr....)

Thanks. Not sure if I'll ever be in Ohio again(been there a few times in the past) but you never know.
