What's the adjustment for doing up the 5 bolts that hold the clutch basket together?. Bolt heads flush?, outer plate flush?. My clutch has always dragged, and when starting from cold I always have to hold the clutch lever in and use the kickstart lever to free the plates off. I've stripped, cleaned the plates, now I'm wondering if the adjustment was incorrect?. The bolts have locking tabs, which suggests they are not meant to be fully tightened up.
Any help much appreciated.
I had the clutch on my Nordwest apart years ago to change the friction plates but I can't for the life of me remember finding a torque figure for the spring bolts. I do remember checking the countersunk socket head screws holding the basket on to the 'shock absorber' were tight on David Champion's advice - see GeN#15 and GeN#16. He was right! Possibly not an issue on the Saturno though.
I'm with Joachim on tightening down. I suspect the locking tabs for the spring bolts are there to prevent them ever coming loose until disassembly is required.

OK, I tightened them lightly, then squared up the bolt heads so the locking tabs were flat onto one of the head flats. Only two bolts needed minor adjustment. When I dismantled it the bolts were not very tight at all, so I assume at the factory, they were tightened the way I just described. All seems to be well.
