I just installed Glen's clutch pull relief over the weekend. Wow, what a difference it makes! The clutch lever is so easy now, feels even easier than the hydraulic one I had on my previous bike. Best $20 I've spent so far on the bike (I didn't get the rivet removing tool, I just used a dremel).

Makes you wonder why the Honda engineers couldn't have designed the clutch mechanism this way from the factory . It's not exactly rocket science, just make the lever at the clutch an inch or so longer to give the cable more leverage.

I've seen one installed on a fury. It puts the clutch cable at a strange angle, and (to me) does not look good. But I did feel the difference in clutch pull and it was easier to squeeze.

Sounds like the person didn't twist the lower cable guide to line the cable up straight.

Just installed the clutch pull relief and it was pretty painless. Piece of cake.

Just did this mod in around 40 min's.
Used a dremel after pulling the clutch open with the wrench and holding it with a few cable ties, ground the Bottom of the rivet off gently and removed with a flat head screw driver.
Everything went back together smooth including the kuryakyn engine covers.
What a difference this has made.
My thanks to Glen at Glens VTX and StPete for the inspiration.

Bump to the top.

A lot of new faces in the forums. If you don't know about this mod yet, you're missing out!
