CB750 K1 Owners Manual has you adjust the clutch by turning the adjuster fully counter clockwise, then clockwise to adjust.

It should be the opposite way round (the Service Manual has it correctly).
1971 Honda CB750 K1 'General Export Type'
1969 Honda CL450 'Dual Sport'
2005 Harley XL1200R Sportster
1985 Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera Sport

This one has always confused the hell out of me, Part Number 90485-035-000 which is the head washer that fits endless Honda's and is listed as 14mm. I have always wondered where the hell they got 14mm from, seeing it is 8mm x 18.1 x 2.3  :o

No Bry all mine say only 1 required. Maybe they amended the parts book by 1976.
