Hi, Richi for this scenario you will need your service manual that has all fastener torque specs and a wiring diagram on the back pages, parts fiche, and owners manual if you can't find the best tool you ever bought for your Suzuki, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

SOURCE: Adjust Motorcycle Clutch Cable

Usually there are 2 adjustment points. One at the clutch lever, and one on the clutch pull on the crankcase. Follow the cable from the handlebars to the engine, there should be an adjust bolt or two. The adjustment at the handlebar lever is usually a screw with a thumbwheel lock nut. Depending on what you are trying to adjust, dictates which one you will use and in what direction it will go. If the clutch is slipping, use the thumbwheel adjuster. Loosen it, back the screw out 2-3 turns, tighten. and check you clutch. if this one is all the way out, go to the crankcase, loosen the bolt on the richt side of the bracket first, then loosen the left one, one turn at a time, checing the clutch. once it's where you want it. tighten the right bolt only. You can do this with a set of open end or box wrenches. An adjustable wrench works in a pinch.

SOURCE: clutch adjustment

There are to different adjustments you can make. The most common adjustment made is on the clutch cable under the rubber boot real easy to figure out once you slide the boot off. The second is at your ramp and ball. I don't ride a RK so I don't know the exact method, but if you stop by your local library they might have a manuel that explains it in detail. My library does.

Clutch cable needs adjusted when i put it in gear it lurches forward when leaver is pull all the way back

There should be a knurled knob on the clutch cable that should give you an adjustment opportunity depending on model and year. If so, try turning it to see if it gets better or worse, if worse then turn in opposite direction.

How to adjust clutch on my 1984 honda shadow 700

there is 2 spots you can adjust your clutch.

1. on your clutch leaver there should be a tension screw where the cable goes in if you need more clutch you have to make sure to bring the screw out a bit

2. down on the side of your motor you will see a cable going in there should be a sleeve covering the cable pull up the sleeve and tighten the slack by bringing the screw out a bit.

good luck.

2006 4cyl manual 5 speed transmission 30K miles, light use with no problems. Will not go into any gear with engine running, goes smoothly into every gear with engine stopped. Clutch pedal feels fine and...

Well, there is only one thing I can think of in your situation. Your pressure plates just simply are not creating enough pressure to allow the gears to engage. Either you have a defective clutch and it needs to be replaced, or possibly just needs a ton of adjustment. When you put it in 1st gear while engine is off, then start it and take off that works b/c there is enough pressure to keep the gears from starting to move when not already moving. However when they are already moving, there is just not enough pressure to stop them from turning, not even long enough to shift. Have you tried forcing it into 2,3, or 4 while driving without the clutch? As long as you achieve the correct RPM's your transmission should be able to do so.

Very hard to pull in clutch leaver with out straining left hand. Is this just cable adjustment needed? or do I need a new hand?

With out pulling in you clutch I can't tell you if it is a normal pull or not. You can buy an easy pull ball and ramp for your clutch, or start working out your grip with a tennis ball.
