Just make sure the clutch completely disengages that's all. As the clutch wears out the clutch will grab lower, so if you start with it really low you're going to have to adjust it sooner. But my point of view is as long as it works, it's ok.

Really? I was having problems with the clutch not disengaging fully, I thought my tranny was going out. It was fixed by a simple cable adjustment and at the time someone told me my problem was just because of clutch wear. Course I just ignore it now, works fine

Uhh.....as the clutch wears out it will actually engage HIGHER, as in, in the direction of the driver. You can adjust it though by turning the little dial on the cable which is located on the right side of the engine, sorta between the battery and the valve cover, IIRC.

makes sense, doesn't it? because when the clutch is worn out it doesn't bite as well.. and it slips even if you release the clutch pedal higher than usual....

anyways if you want it to bite lower than tweak the knob so that there is more slack in the cable. and vice-versa

I just replaced my clutch cable, and it engages pretty low to the floor. Should I adjust it so its higher? Or does it matter, is it just personal preference? And if I do have to fix it, is there a way to adjust it without taking all that stuff back out (batter, tray and airbox)???

its personal preference... i personally like it really low for stop-n-go traffic.

my airbox and resonator is removed anyways so theres lots of room to work .... you dont even have to remove the battery ... just take the collar off from the airbox -> MAF and stick your hand between there
