Default Clutch pedal height

I have a 2000 Civic SiR (Si in the US). My question is does anyone know
what the Honda spec is for the movement of the clutch pedal? What I mean
is how far from top to bottom does a properly adjusted clutch pedal go?

The reason I ask is that mine seems to be a quite large distance compaired
to my friends 1997 civic and I was told the other day at a performance shop
that it seems really long compaired to other civics.

thanks

I don't have an answer. That just may be the way honda is building
the clutches for civics these days. I have an O4, EX sedan 5 spd. I
can tell you that the clutch stroke is significantly longer than any
other manual i have driven. Also, the engagement point is very high.
Although the clutch is very smooth, I am getting tired of bringing my
knee up to my chest to shift. Could be time for an automatic

Best of luck,
Marc

The clutch height can be adjusted as far as I know. On my 01 Prelude
(30k km) the clutch engages within the middle third of the total pedal
travel. On a friend's 90 Integra (130k km) it is in the bottom quarter.
His clutch disengages completely only when the pedal hits the floor and
over a smaller distance than on my Prelude. There is nothing wrong with
his clutch, that's the way he adjusted it.

In my Haynes manual for 94-00 Integra,96-00 Civic and 97-00 Cr-V,the clutch
pedal height is specified at 6.5 inches for Civic and Integra,and CR-V is
spec'd at 7 3/16 inches.

clutch freeplay is 1/2 to 3/4 inch.

K i just mesured mine and it is 6.75 in... so i guess that is normal. I
think it must just engage higher and makes it feel really long.
