Default Move friction zone

I have a 2006 Jack Pot with a little over 19000 miles and was wondering if you can adjust the friction zone of the clutch, as mine engages when the clutch lever is almost all the way out.
Thanks and ride safe...

when the bike is cold is the only time you can adjust the clutch. So in the morning squeeze the clutch a few times.
Now holing on the bar with one hand take the other hand and pull on the cable where it goes into the clutch housing. The cable will come out now look at the silver end. There should be a 1/16" to 1/8" gap between the should of the cable and the housing. If you have more the what I said you need to adjust.
Down on the far end is the adjuster loosen locking nut now squeeze the lever a few times. That sets the little balls in place. Adjust to the setting I told you. Now you should be good.
Once you start the bike you can "not" adjust till next day.

Yes, it just puts slop in the cable. The friction zone is not alterable with a taut cable. At least if it can be, I haven't figured it out.

Yes the silver end should have a gap of 1/16 to a 1/8
Les means you have drag on the clutch
More means the clutch lever has to much and will drag and make it hard to shift

So how much did yours have

I had less than a 1/16. When I go to less than 1/8 the bike has a little pull when I give it gas is that normal.
Thanks

You just need to introduce a bit more freeplay into the clutch lever. This brings the friction zone closer to the grip. I had to do the same because I have small hands. If, after the clutch is warmed up, the bike drags a bit when the lever is squeezed or shifting is difficult, there is too much play and you need to take some out because the clutch is not releasing all the way.

Most wet clutches will drag when they (and the oil) are cold, that's why you should adjust when hot. Shouldn't matter what the clutch does when cold.

Also, as I understand it, when the friction plates wear, the friction zone moves away from the grip as it takes less lever travel to disengage the clutch (friction plates are thinner). Eventually the lever travel gets very short and the clutch starts slipping under power because the friction material is gone. At 19000 miles, you may be in need of a new clutch pack.

A man can get used to anything, except a rock in his shoe. Where the friction zone is on the lever is something you get used to in 20 minutes.
