    Kawasaki doesn't make clutches.

    Is either an Ongura, or Warne.
    Ongura must be checked & adjusted.
    Warne is patented automaticlly adjust itself.

    What brand mower is it?

    I adjust all them about .010, use two feeler gages at a time. Why are you adjusting it?

    Ortega clutches at .25, Warrens aren't adjustable I don't think.

    Warne patented clutches are self adjusting.

    Ongura's should be air blown clean, and process of setting air gap is like that of ignition points (key switch off). Setting is 0.010-0.012.

    Many clutches prematurely wear because they're either not burnished or not burnished correctly.
