How to Adjust Your Clutch

Some new engines have a clutch that is stuck on arrival. This is normal, and 95% of the time, no clutch adjustment will be required. Assemble the rest of your bike and once fully assembled, pull in the clutch lever and force the bike forward several revolutions. The chain should make a popping sound and the clutch should break free.

In some cases, the issue is the clutch that is slightly out of adjustment and will require a simple adjustment. This is also normal and is easy to resolve.

The below is a very helpful video made by Brian, one of our customers, on how to do the clutch adjustments.
