Arrow What is your Clutch Settings ?

Everyone drives through different terrains and is having different driving styles. So some of the guys may have modified/tweaked their machines to their driving conditions. And also some of the xBHP-ians may had done some clutch plate mods etc. And when riding dissimilar bikes or even bikes of same specifications I've felt that the clutch is adjusted in different ways.

So based on your experiences and on your bikes , which are the best clutch settings to suit different parcels of land (with zero damage to our machines) :

1. For Highway Cruising alone(smoothness is the need of that hour)

2. Mix of City and rural areas(with potholed tarmacs)

3. City riding alone(Stop & Go Traffic)

4. For Drag Racing (We need instant pickups, Right?)

5. Stunts

I always want my clutch whether its my bike or car to be at the tip of the lever. So that I dont have to depress the lever or pedal much.

It gives a racy feeling too, since it gives quick pickup. But you have to be careful to not keep the lever or pedal depressed while riding. Your plates will run out. I hate half clutch riders or drivers. If I know the guy uses half clutch, I wont give my vehicle to them.
