Yes, a clutch adjustment is easy to do. Just follow the shop manual guidance. My 2006 Foreman is not exactly easy to shift and I would not try it wearing flip-flops but in regular shoes, I consider it easy to shift.

What do you mean by "kind of hard to shift"? How many miles or hours on the bike? Original clutches?

just adjusted it and change the gear oil shifts alot smoother and quicker thanks for the tips guys!
Pull the lever up and see if it still moves. I have had 3 420's and each of them had the clutch plates stick. It is so bad that I use a bungee cord to pull the lever up when stored in my garage. This guarantees that they don't stick.
