When I got the bike, it had excess 'catching' noise when I shifted. I tried shifting slow, fast, middle of the RPM drop. It just never felt right, but since I didn't have it from new, I just thought it was the nature of the beast. Then I did the full adjustment and not just the 2 easiest. Oh Man! What a world of difference! It's a new bike. Dealer never did it right for me either. 8)

cable lube
 
If you really want to feel the difference, go to the dealer and buy a cable luber and a can of cable life. this will force lube in the cables and flush out the corroision and leave a film of lube . then do your adjustments , it will feel better than new . :D Z.T.

Dean, you're the best! Read this post the other day. Today, while riding 2 up, in the rain, noticed the clutch slipping. Once I got the bike in the garage, I decided to print your post and adjust my clutch. Keep in mind the stealer replaced the entire clutch just 2 months ago. Found the 2 nuts at the top of the clutch cover not only loose, but at least a quarter inch above the bracket! Fixed that problem pronto. One question, how do you get the middle left side cover off? I took the 2 bolts out, and the cover was still very tight. It's only plastic and I didn't want to break it, so I left it alone for now.
Thanks my brother, you saved me a big problem.

If I remember correctly, there is a third nut/screw under the plastic side cover that your key removes. I've slept since then though. 8)

Iron Man,

I used this info to adjust my clutch. Very helpful. I discovered that the locknut around the clutch adjustment screw was completely loose. I am now hoping that the bike will no longer have that little jump when I start it in gear even with the clutch pulled in. Thanks.

I thought the jump was from the clutch plates sitting against metal since the oil hasn't moved around for a while.

I had the jump on my 87 Intruder, and have it on the 07 C50 if it's been more than a few hours since it was last started.
