    yes, there is an internal spring that can be adjusted - first, you should go through the cable & flower nut adjustments to be sure they are proper, then check that all pads are trimmed so they go all the way through their slots & touch both plates

    Cool man thank you, I got it open right now so I'll ck out that the pads are not catching on the pad cage. So what your saying is that their is a spring in between the cases that increases the pressure on the plates.

    yes, but it rarely needs adjustment - search the board here for 'clutch inner spring' to get info on how to access it & adjust

    pop either the clutch plates or sprocket with puller that comes with "every" kit, hammer out the shaft, the spring is then easily adjusted.

    you can also undo the lil adjustor thingy behind the cylinder, that holds the outer case of the clutch cable steady, and with a bit of tomfoolery, one can adjust the spring simply by jamming a screwdriver down the hole, and turning the sprocket. having pulled an engine apart before and knowing what is where helps if this method is chosen ;)
