wrf super heavy clutch lever

Post by curl666 on Sat Oct 24, 2015 10:50 pm

The clutch on my dads Wrf is super heavy. The lever is too heavy for a days riding. The clutch kit is brand new and the clutch operates as it should, without any strange noises.

The lever is lubed/greased and the cable is less than a year old, correctly routed.

I also have a Wrf and the clutch lever can be pulled in with 1 finger, my dads needs a full grip.

Any suggestions?

I'm due to replace the clutch on my bike I was wondering if maybe the large concave washer which fits against the first plate has been removed making my clutch a lot lighter?

This might not help much, but when I changed the clutch in my WR I did the springs at the same time (using new standard springs) and found the clutch even heaver after scratch

The conclusion I came to, was that the previous owner must have fitted lighter one's to help with the problem and going back to standard buggered his mod up?

Bit pricy but you could used to be able to get an hydraulic conversion for about £180

I'll dig out the old springs and measure them, but even prior to the clutch change it was heavy. Just now it's worse!

I did mention a rekluse but he's not keen.

Maybe some more auto erotica would help, build up the muscles and all that, bit of a tricky one to explain to the Mrs/girlfriend though
