If I have managed to attach this file rite, it should help you out.
l More throttle opening = HIGHER line pressure and LATER, FIRMER shifts.
l Less throttle opening = LOWER line pressure and EARLIER, SOFTER shifts.
l WOT (Wide Open Throttle) = MAXIMUM line pressure and FIRM shifts at the engine
For LATER, FIRMER shifts, slide the cable housing further OUT of (rearward) the locking
mechanism. Attempting to make the shifts too late and firm will result in undesirably harsh shifts
under light throttle.
For EARLIER, SOFTER shifts, slide the cable housing further INTO (forward) the locking
mechanism. Attempting to make the shifts too early will result in excessive transmission slippage
during shifts, especially at medium and heavy throttle.
WARNING: Going too far in either direction will cause trouble!!
Make your adjustments in small increments of about 1/8" (0.125")
At a fixed throttle position...say 1/4 throttle....every 1/8" of cable adjustment will change
the shift points by a few miles per hour. At a greater throttle opening...say 3/4 throttle...
that same 1/8" of cable adjustment will make more of a difference.
When you're finished adjusting, replace the locking clip and road test it. Pay close attention to
the light and medium throttle shift firmness and timing.
