    I had the 1000 mile service done and had no problems. I have 2500 miles on my heritage now and the clutch does not completely disengage when stopped.
    What is thev procedure to adjust the clutch?

    The answers to most questions you might ask are already here if you will use the search function above. I used this procedure the other day worked like a champ. I would suspect cable stretch in your case, how much play at the pivot of the clutch lever? If you don't have a manual you NEED one. Check Gary on this forum for a manual on CD. (Search for "manual on cd") Good luck with it.

    Should be 1/16th, you might get by with a cable adjustment.
