Hello All, you guys may be aware of my new family member - 06 vmax. I havnt named her yet, I'm waiting on it to 'hit me' -

But that's not the reason for my post. I found and down loaded the service manual earlier, (THANK YOU!!)

My bike is giving me issues getting in to neutral. From a dead stop and as well even from a small roll, like when coming up on a long line of traffic. It doesn't matter if the bike is running or not. It should 'slip' right in, and it's doesn't. Seriously, too when I come to a red traffic light and have to stop, by the time I find neutral, the light's green. and people are honking.

And the other night, right after I came out of a restaurant and hopped on my bike, I had the clutch lever pulled in, sitting in 1st gear, waiting on a friend to pull out of a parking spot it was as if the bike wanted to 'pull' me a bit. but after 10 seconds or so he was on me, so we pulled out. I didn't have time to investigate. And I've tried to duplicate that feeling but haven't been able to. I have a feeling if I keep the clutch where it is now though (unadjusted), it wont be to long.
(fyi too before leavin the housethat night, I had just changed the oil with a new filter and AMSOIL) which I'm not a huge fan of but it's all the autoparts store had and they sold it to me for $8.00qt)

I've gone thru the service manual for the 1st generation VMAX and I cant find anything on the proper procedure for the clutch adjustment.

Ive read on here about he 'double d' modification. - maybe?? I like the idea. (Something I can domyself?)

THE REAL QUESTION IS - Would you guys know where I can find the proper procedures for clutch adjustment on my '06?

Am I missing it in the service manual? Ive looked 3x. And I promise I can read.

Thanks ALL, John
