    Clutch lever number settings?

    I've read here that the clutch is hydraulic. Do the numbers on the lever mean something specific? How do I know when to replace the clutch?

    The numbers on the handle are for the offset to make you reach the lever.

    You'll know when the clutch needs to be replaced when in the higher gears the revs increase but not the speed, indicating the clutch is slipping.

    Thank you for your help. How far back should I be pulling the lever?

    Untill you feel the clutch disengaging. Full pull is disengaged. Put it in to gear and use a little bit of throttle and release the clutch gently untill you feel it engaging. From then, even more gently release it as you drive off.

    Don't mind me asking, but shouldn't you have learned this while taking driving lessons?  :187: :084:

    Driving lessons? You had to take lessons? :745:I'm just trying to learn how they build things over there across the pond?

    Trolololol. That's why every major F1 team is in Europe. No MotoGP teams use USA-made engines and you still go to European manufacturers for proper cars such as Porche, McLaren, BMW, Lamborghini and Aston Martin.

    And mate, don't forget the brand you're driving...

    No worries mate. We went to a H-D dealer, but when I saw this bike i just had to have it. I often go for oddball gizmos, and end up paying a lot for it. I've always wanted a Triumph motorcycle.

    Well, I understand that motorcycle riding is all about freedom, but as a guy from The Netherlands (or Holland as you might know it) we have three test we have to take.
    1. theory
    2. basic vehicle control
    3. traffic participation

    This does make sure that with a population of 17 million, of which about 7,2 million have a drivers license on a land size of about double the size of Vermont, in 2015 we only had 45 motorcycle accidents. Oh, and by the way, helmets are a mandatory with at least ECE-certification.
