Can't quite work out how an old duffer  (or so I keep hearing Very Happy)  with a knackered left arm can use an antiquated cable clutch on an equally antiquated Honda without any problem - yet there are people with hydraulic clutches needing help?

All i really want to know is if that makes me a well 'ard hero or Muffy a limp wristed poof??

If you have to pull it back to the bars it not a one finger clutch Rob scratch i guess something must need adjusting ? i bought fancy levers before & found em worse, i just move the standard ones in & cut a v in clutch handle bar grip now.

Will that make the clutch feel softer ? or just make the clutch slip ?

Apparently with these you are supposed to set the clutch to disengage just off the bar . It doesnt mean you have to pull it right in to engage , but if you dont set it up like that you might get clutch slip with the lever fully out , and it means the reach is quite small , which is what the aim is , ie you arent having to stretch out to start pulling . Anyway , it was mrs Muff that insisted I buy it , cos she was sick of me complaining my fingers were aching every Valentines day
