    Clutch Lever Change

    Just swapped my clutch lever out last night, managed to get the securing grub screw out of the adjustment plunger, and then blue loctited it back in the new lever.I did this on the bench and positioned the adjuster the same as before in the indentation notch in the thread. I went for a spin and the cluch felt strange for some reason, like it kept catching gears etc. (not clearing?)
    My question is; Is there a procedure for this?,Can I tell if there is a tiny bit of play between the plunger and the piston? shall i put the bike on a stand and see if is driving in 1st with the cluch in?( it always did this a bit even before i messed with it!)Cheers.

    here we go again lol , hi mate you feeling any vibes or anything through your lever when pulled in ? , is the lever kinda limp ? does your right hand casing move out when you pull in the lever ? if you are getting any of these then it sounds like the bearing in the clutch thats gone theres a few on here thats had the same problem mate but its a easy fix so no need to worry cost around 10 for a new bearing and very easy to replace . and yes there should be a little play in the piston at the master cylinder .
    hope this help you bud :
