Might have to get something like that. After a while in traffic my hand/joints start to act up.

Glen sent me one in May to try out, it fits and works great on the Fury, couple of very minor differences in mounting (have to remove and reinstall a bracket) is all . I sent Glen the feedback and I think he incorporated it into the directions. Also I have the Kury engine covers over it, no problem there either.

Hey this looks like a great little invention. Never hear of anything like it. I'll have to make this purchase but wanted to know from anyone that went this route what is up with the tools for the install that is posted and is it necessary to put the deposit for the supplied tools??

The tool is basically a rivet buster, not necessary, but makes the job alot easier and couple of allens . I have read alot of posts on the VTXOA board of others not using it, but wishing that they had, some just grind the rivet head off with a dremel.

It says "reduces the force it takes to disengage the clutch by about 50%." How does it do this? Less spring tension? Longer arm for more leverage? Anyone know how this thing works?

It adds length to the arm, increasing leverage and reducing force needed to pull in the clutch. I don't know for sure if it is 50% but I can really tell the difference when I ride my X (it doesn't have it)

Help me out guys.....(or girls, as well)

I'm missing something I think. I rode 227 miles today in Arizona (some city, of course) and I find no issues with the clutch handle pressure. I guess I'm curious why I would want to change it???? I now have a little over 2200 miles on my scoot and my left hand doesn't get tired from the "shifting" ???

I'm glad you don't have a problem....for me, it's not so much a problem as I get fatigued pulling the lever. If you have smaller hands, such as women generally do, it can get hard to pull the clutch in when your hands get tired and it may cause cramping of the fingers...and I have long fingers and strong hands. The CTR just makes it more comfortable and not as tiring.
I just ordered one from Glen.
