    Hello all,

    Just purchased an 03 buell xb9s. My clutch lever is extremely hard to pull. I have checked the forum and the manual and cant find out how to adjust this so its easier to pull. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks guys!

    Clutch-lite Clutch Ramp & Install - Easy Install, big reduction in pull force, and around $50!

    No adjustment is available to change force necessary to pull clutch lever.
    Keep clutch lever & cable clean & lubricated. Give attention then to these two details:
    1) Clutch lever pivot @ its perch gripping handlebar.
    2) Clutch cable end @ clutch lever.

    Ok..so what I am getting is that there is no adjustment for the force it takes to pull the clutch lever. I have had a few bikes and this clutch seems unusually tough to pull. Maybe I just need a aftermark one

    Have you lubed the cable yet and checked for any places that it could be binding?
