Both ends of the clutch cable have threads and may be adjusted at
either the clutch control lever in transmission housing or at the
clutch pedal. The clutch is correctly adjusted when clutch pedal free
travel is 20 - 25 mm (3/4 to 1 in,).
The adjustment should be made with care since insufficient clearance
will result in clutch slippage followed by burnt linings.
