I can't say I ever noticed the neutral thing, before or after the clutch job, but it will make sense that your clutch lever position will be more sensitive because there's a whole layer of 'mush' in the clutch pack now.

I finally got to test the new and modified clutch and have pt a couple of hundred kilometers on it. Definitely much easier to launch smoothly but am also having a tougher time finding neutral. Maybe this'll get easier as the clutch plates get acquainted with one another.

Figured out my neutral problem after asking a few people. There is an adjuster near your knee on the right side.

Played with that just slightly as well as the clutch lever, and its PERFECT.

My guess is that it will help you as well. Took 5 mins at the most. I'll post a picture in a few.

You pull back the sleeve towards the front of the bike, and use a 10/12mm wrench to adjust it. There is a nut that locks the adjuster into place, and then you can adjust it by hand. I loosened that nut, and played with it in the parking lot until I was happy.

Here are the pictures for the adjuster:

Thanks, I'll give that a try later today. I remember that adjuster from when I swapped out my clutch cable.

Yes - I set the lever adjuster in the middle of its adjustment, use the side adjuster to get close to the right free play, and then fine tune at the lever. This helped with both neutral and smoother engagement with the standard clutch pack.

Getting ready to do this and I have a couple of questions about the 32mm socket:

- Is it a 6-point socket or does it need a 12-point one?
- Is it a shallow one or do I need a deep one?

6 point, standard depth (mine was a little under an inch deep and was fine)
