Exclamation Novarossi mr12 (standard) clutch help

Hi can anyone advise me how many turns in on the clutch nut I should go. I guess this nut changes how early/late the clutch bites. Cheers -James
It is a standard MR 12 for a mugen mtx 4 it has black shoes x4

Go in till you have about 1.5 threads showing. That should get you close enough to tune from. Tighten if it's too early, loosen if it's too late (slipping).

Keep in mind that the pretension on the spring is depending the clutch gap and with this question I wonder if you are aware that a to small or a to big gap can give a bad clutch.
