Guys,

I visited my dealer yesterday and while having a small chat with him I played with clutch lever of a KS in the showroom. It was SO-o hard to pull! Then I applied the lever of the new GT - less force required but still hard. Then we went to paddock and tested some more machines - a new GT, a new KS and two used KSs ready for pick-up after service. ALL the bikes had different clutch levers - I mean the softness. Of cource it was not possible to compare them with GS or RT( the softest ) but still...
So does anybody know is the clutch adjustable?
TIA

You do know that it is hydraulic, right ?
So my guess is no adjustment other that the "reach" @ the lever.

air is bad....

I don't know any way to adjust the lever feel of a hydraulic clutch. I do know if you let a little air in the line, they get awfully soft. ;)

and if air is in the line....the clutch will not disengage fully and you can burn it up real quick, not to mention damage to the gear box....

Simple solution....buy a pair of handgrips and do exercises...I demo'd an '06KGT and didn't even notice the clutch or brake pull. I did notice the clutch lever being lower than the brake...maybe just adjusted wrong.
