Clutch adjustment ZX14

How do you adjust the clutch on ZX14? Its hydraulic and since I installed the new levers it slips like the clutch is partially engaged when the lever is at rest. I've never messed with hydraulic clutch levers before.

Spent some time googling and running through the MOM and can't find anything. Infact the MOM says that lever free play is "non adjustable"

mmm I loosened the chain up a little bit more, just incase that was giving the problems. I adjusted it after I lowered it, and hadn't ridden it since. And it felt a little tight after I got off it today.

yeah, there is no adjustment available, unless you modify parts on your bike to make things work differently (which your new lever has obviously done). There is a compensation port inside the master cylinder, and my bet is that the new lever doesn't retract far enough to allow the piston to clear that port. if you bring it by the shop, we should be able to get you squared away.

As for your clutch you need to ride it so they can mate if it still acts up then it is what it is mine did the same it feels like it wants to roll forward bit after about 150 miles it's good now

I am wondering if I should just redirect the clutch and get heavier springs anyway that seems like a popular mod. Ill probably throw the old lever on ride it hard and confirm that was the issue.

With both levers off, look at the contact point where it pushes the master cylinder plunger. May be able to mill or grind the new one to match. You just need to lay both levers on top of each other and see where the difference is.

Well im not sure how grinding would help at rest the plunger is fully compressed with the clutch engaged the plunger is fully extended wouldn't grinding the contact point allow the plunger to extend further engaging the clutch when the lever is at rest?

When you release the lever, the plunger has to travel a certain distance to release the pressure/engage the clutch. So it's holding the planger down some when the lever is fully released.

If you're bored and want some help I'll be home all week.

Meant to say rebuild the clutch but Droid decided redirect was a better choice.
