    Well, I picked this up today and I'm really pleased with it. BUT...that clutch is HEAVY. Lever needs to be span adjustable as well.

    Is my bike an exception or do they all have heavy clutch levers? I noticed it when I viewed the bike and wasn't too concerned but 100 miles or so later it's a bit too much. Bike has just under 11k miles in case that's relevant.

    Anyhow, here it is :):

    Mine isn't heavy so its probably needing a new cable. Mines done 113000 if that helps!

    I would go with Fourbears. the cable is knackered. You will know if you take it of and pull it through a few times cable should be free flowing.

    Perhaps someone swapped out the standard springs for race ones, or the cable needs oiled.

    Well it's 18 years old with low mileage so maybe it's gummed up. I need to check routing as well. I read a post where somebody used an actuator arm from a 2005 Daytona 955 and got the finger pull down from 30lbs to 18lbs on account of the extra length.

    Start with a cable I think.
