    Hi,
    I recently bought this old Bike.
    I am not sure, if "snappy clutch" (from google translate :)) is the correct term to describe my problems.
    The (little bit worn out) clutch lever, has only a ~5mm distance from a fully open, to a fully closed clutch.
    Nearly impossible to dose and feel the correct "pressure point"
    So its very hard, to start up.
    It's more like a "jumpy" than smooth start up, because I need higher revs, to avoid killing the engine.
    Every traffic light is a "nightmare" :mad:
    I adjusted the clutch according to the service manual. But no difference.
    Could it be a problem with the clutch springs or plates?
    And yes, I know how to use a clutch....:problem:
    EDIT: THE SOLUTION
