1198 Friction Zone Adjustment

Hey guys,

Recently purchased a 2010 1198 with 2,000 miles. Bike is awesome and I am loving it so far, but the clutch is taking some serious getting used to. I am accustomed to clutches engaging much closer to the grips. On my 1198 it engages about 90-95% of the way out and has very little play before it is fully engaged.

I have adjusted the lever closer to the grip, but I would still like to have the clutch engage much sooner than it does. How can I go about doing this? My bike already has an upgraded slave cylinder courtesy of the first owner.

That's one of those dry clutch things, right?

They suck.

I also own a 2010 1198....

Best adjustment you can make is getting adjustable levers. I picked some from recently and they work much better. Stock ones are not great and not a ton of adjustment.
