    Midwest clutch lever

    Post by mufynman on Tue Feb 14, 2017 7:20 pm

    I got one of these last week as have been getting aching clutch finger at the end of a days ride . It makes the pull so much lighter , and allows you to grip the bar and use one finger clutch . Only ridden for 5 minutes with it , and seems great , the only downside is that because the travel is less , fnding neutral is now impossible ( no great shakes ) , and i'm going to have to learn to use the lever  a bit differently  ,as it comes right to the bar now . Anyone else used one ? I think I remember Whyzedd having one . Other downside is the price - dont even ask   affraid !

    I've been reading up about these as the beta clutch. Is slightly heavier than he 300exc and heard very good reviews about the midwest clutch. Will be interested to see what you think after a full days riding.
