Default How to adjust clutch cable

The clutch cable needs to be adjusted, the nut at the lever is almost all the way out and it still doesn't seem to fully release. I see there is some sort of a nut midway on the cable and what looks like another nut under the bike by the transmission. Is there a procedure for clutch adjustment on this type? I have no manual.

get your manual here .. it will be invaluable

And yes you can adjust the cable at both those points ..

Screw your handle bar adjuster all the way in .. then adjust with the middle adjuster.. loosen off the nut and turn the large tube out to take up the slack ..similar process for the adjustment at the 'box if you need more .. then final adjustment at the leaver .. if still too slack its new cable time..

Good luck
