Fantic Caballero 500 - Owner's Manual > Clutch lever and gearbox

Maintenance / Clutch lever and gearbox

Perform the clutch adjustment when the engine stops or the vehicle tends to move forward with the clutch lever and the gear engaged, or if the clutch "slips", causing an acceleration delay with respect to the engine rpm.

To make the adjustment:


Check the integrity of the clutch cable in its entire length; the sheath must not show cracks, cuts, crushing or wear, if only one of these defects is present, replace the clutch cable at an authorized Fantic Motor Center.

If the adjustments made are not sufficient to guarantee the required clearance, contact an authorized Fantic Motor Center.
