well.. first off i wanna say im not an expert and im not great with using the right terms for things, but i just had to adjust the clutch on my 86 prelude the other day.if you look on the driver side around the fire wall towards where your steering wheel is you will see 3 or 4 cords coming out.. for your clutch and accelerator and stuff.. if you look for the one closest towards you, u should see the clutch cable there. it's gonna go around the engine to the other side of the car near the battery.mine was kinda hidden behind some wires and hoses so you gotta look good.. you should see a white looking round piece with notches all in it. if you have a chilton book or a haynes book you will know exactly what it looks like.. anyways all u gotta do is get your hand down in there and turn that big white plastic piece clockwise to tighten it, or counter-clockwise if your wanting to loosen it. its actually kinda easy once you find it. and you shouldn't need any tools to adjust it. i hope this helps some.

How do you adjust the clutch cable on a 1986 Honda Shadow?

The quickest way is to adjust the clutch is at the clutch lever. You will notice where the clutch cable enters the top of the clutch lever. There are adjusting nuts there and two of them are longer and have a slit in the side. You loosen all nuts and align the two with the slit so that they form a straight line. Now you tighten the main adjusting nut until you can feel and see that as soon as you pull the clutch lever the wire inside the cable moves and the clutch begins to disengage. At this point you tighten the adjustment nut and disalign the two nuts with the slit. Fasten well. Drive the motorcycle around the block to see how the clutch works, then re-adjust if necessary. It is important that there is no marked dead play or slack in the clutch cable.
