yep,it's very easy...undwer the handle bar cover there's a the diff cable with a aluminum collar on it,loosen the set nut and then just tighten it up to your liking...i think the actual setting should be somewhere around 8-10 lbs. of pull pressure (someone will chime in with the exact pressure)...i just set mine a bit tighter due to my own preference

i adjust my diff every other time i go out. just to make sure its ready to go. since i use it alot. i really need to get another pen-lock. im waiting for my diff plates to wear out that how much i use it. my cable is about 50% worn out. thinking a new one this year. but i'll wait till the adjust ment is almost out of spec. the way i do it is turn in the adjustment on the top all the way in. then go down to the bottom adjustment area. jack up the left side so the left front tire is off the ground but keep the right side on the ground. this is wear my method is diffrent i slowly turn the left tire as i tighten up the adjust ment untill i feel the tire draging on the clutch plates inside. then i back off 1/4 turn then lock it down. then i go to the top adjust ment and fine tune the lever. works everytime for me and i have the same oem diff lock since feb 2004, with 295 hrs and 3218 miles on the machine i use the most. and my diff has never let me down. also you could just follow the book. i run my setup tighter on the specs,
