Pecos, double check everything externally - clutch lever, cable, throwout bearing/assembly, etc. As disston said, there is a correct clutch adjustment, see post #114 here http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...=848159&page=8
, and as ignatz72 says, check your throwout mechanism, see post #101 here http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...=848159&page=7
. Clutches do wear out but often times just cleaning, lubricating, and correctly adjusting will keep these old bikes running strong.
