ok, so i am new with this bike and forum, but not new to bikes at all. however, with this XR650L, i am puzzled and don't want to put more into it than necessary. that being said, my bike runs great, but it doesn't wheelie worth a damn. i can ride one for about a mile on my R1, and do stand-ups, so i'm no stranger to the balance point and how to get there. i don't want to beat the shit out of this thing trying to get it up. it runs great, even on the pavement. i am not feeling clutch slip, but i am really not used to the bike so it might be slipping a little. sorry if i am jumping around a lot. try to hang in there. so yesterday, despite not having a lot of play in the lever, i tightened the adjustment up and sure enough, it pulls up a little shifting into second gear now. i only had a tiny bit of adjustment left in the lever and then it ran out. so my question is this -do you guys think i can run the adjuster back in and adjust it at the engine and then fine tune it up top with the lever adjuster? my concern is that there is very little play in the lever as it is. however, i don't want to buy a new clutch if the cable is just stretched out. any input would be greatly appreciated. also, any tips for adjusting it at the engine would be cool too. i am at work killing time and i'm not going to mess with the bike until this evening. i have not even looked at the cable down at the engine yet. also, i did a search on this and came up with relatively little so take it easy on me please.
