it would be pretty sweet if this article said how to adjust the clutch via the screws. tightening the screws get the clutch to engage at a higher rpm? or is it the other way around?

I agree, that kind of info would be really helpful here. I don't think I'm qualified to write about it, but I'll see if I can find someone who is and get them to write it. --Mycider 18:14, 11 July 2009 (EDT)

You are on the right track. The farther in you tighten the screw the more it compresses the spring. More compression on the spring requires more centrifugal force to swing the clutch arm out allowing it to engage with the clutch bell. In other words the more you tighten the screw, the higher the RPM before the clutch engages fully. Do not tighten the screw past two full turns from all the way in. If you do, the clutch arm will bottom out and never fully engage, causing slippage.
