    I'm seeing that video different than "clutch adjustment by the book" tip #85 for big twins.
    In the video, @ about 1:24 he says "back the adjuster out counter clock wise until it lightly SEATS" ?? then turn it in 1/4 turn, and put the lock in.

    By the book you turn it IN until it lightly seats, then back off 1/2 - 3/4 turn and lock down.

    I see 2 totally different end results. ???
