Question clutch adjustment zone Kawa EX 500


My 2007 EX 500 clutch is currently adjusted so the power applies near the end of the clutch release. Reading the EX500 forum, it seems this is the recommended zone. I might be more comfortable having the clutch release a bit more in the middle of the zone. That would help control. Is this reasonable, and would that be harder on the clutch lifespan? And, I am not quite sure which direction to turn the clutch handlebar nut: clockwise, or anti? (Looking from inside handlebar outboard towards end of clutch handle). Any advice is appreciated. The clutch works fine, smooth, and shifting is no problem at the current setting.

Lefty - Loosy...should turn counter-clockwise. You don't want too much slack though. The clutch lever will feel really sloppy. Might want to try an aftermarket adjustable lever instead.
