Clutch adjustment/Cable/screwed?

*I try using the search function but just seems that it only shows "new posts"..

*Is there an online Manual for 91 era DR250/350s?

I think I figured out the clutch cable adjuster but not entirely sure.

The problem I am having is I smelt something burning last night while out and about. Got home and removed the tank to see if anything was actually burnt, nothing. After checking front caliper to see if it was seizing I called it a night early. After work I couldn't get the bike started (Kill switch, Im an idiot) so I tried jump starting it. While the bike is in gear, I could hardly push the bike with the clutch lever pulled in. I assume this isn't a normal issue for this bike?

Also, while we're at it. I use Rotella in all of my other bikes. I'll assume it's equally as safe for this bike?

Im learning fast that this bike is not at all like a cruiser or sportbike..

Well you certainly didn't smell the clutch burning.

Because it's inside the engine!!!

Ha, fair enough.
I did find an online manual for a 350.

Yes it is, it gets smoother as the oil warms up, but here will still be some "drag"
