You can use the red adjuster to change the lever position. If you like, you can position the clutch lever closer to the bar. Unlike older ZX-6Rs, the 2003 bike does not allow for that.
You can quickly adjust the lever position with a finger or two from the saddle. On the track, if the brake lever comes to the bar with fade, you can position it further from the bar. If the lever breaks in a drop, it will likely do so at the notch near the tip and allow you to finish the race or limp to the pits.
Adjusting clutch lever or throttle free play are entirely different procedures, for which you should really stop the bike.
Yeah, at 01' the clutch is having that vertical adjuster which is propably almost the same one as 03', and it's far away from any adjustments during ride. It gives a stepless adjustment but it is something you should stop for adjusting. Thanks for the help. I'll keep the stock ones for now anyway.Originally posted by Rob Lee
The 1995 to 1997 bike comes with another numbered adjuster (a horizontal dial) on the stock clutch lever. The 2003 bike does not, and the free play adjuster (a vertical dial) on that bike is not a good choice for ergonomic adjustments. The proper clutch free play on all ZX-6Rs is 2 to 3 mm between the lever and the lever holder.
I am not quite sure if the 2000 to 2002 bike comes with a numbered adjuster on the stock clutch lever. If it does not, you cannot choose a comfortable position for the stock lever. You will need an aftermarket lever for that.
