I Recently Purchased A 1993 Kawasaki Bayou 300 Fourwheeler. The Motor Runs Great But On Certain Occasions The Clutch Will Slip, Especially On Cold Days. Was Told By A Friend That These Things Have Adjustments. If So Is Anyone Familiar With Where And How To Do This. Thanks!

The clutch adjustment is for initial set up to get it to release. If it ever needs adjusting again it would be because it will not release.

When they slip, it is because either the clutch frictions are worn out, or they are contaminated from running automotive type oils. You want to always use a JASO MA rated oil for wet clutch bikes and ATV's.

The fix if it is from using automotive oils it to tear down the clutch and clean the frictions and steels. Then use the proper oil.

You do not have to buy high dollar motorcycle oil now days, as when the 2007 diesel emission standards went into effect the Shell Rotella for diesels sold for cheap at WallyWorld are now clean oils with no phosphorus or anti-friction additives, and carry the JASO certification you need. Just read the container before you use it.
