Default LSL Adjustable Clutch Lever Question

Does anyone happen to have the LSL Adjustable Clutch lever set?

Coles notes version of the issue, clutch pull is insane on my Cross Roads, even with working out my left hand like its a competition, all I've done is most likely aggravate the onset of arthritis. I got an EZ-Pull from WD, but do not have the cable travel/lever sweep to allow for free-play and be able change gears, which is partially caused by losing 1/3" travel from the Kuryankyn iso-grips padding.

I have done everything I can on the clutch pinion end trying to get it to work, even drilling out a new hole closer to the actual pinion bracket in the EZ-pull, which got me closer but not enough. The only thing left is to change the leverage/travel at the clutch lever now.

I've already swapped out the clutch for a Scorpion, and ordered a new high performance cable from Barnett, but have probably burned a good portion of the plates in playing with all this crap trying to get it to work over since I got the bike in March. I've spoken with Dylan at @witchdoctor and they don't have the information.

So, I am trying to see if anyone has the LSL Adjustable Clutch lever (Adjustable Brake & Clutch Lever Set in Levers - Handlebars & Accsy's - Cross Country, Magnum, Roads - VM - Your #1 Source for US Made, Custom Victory Motorcycle Parts ) and can tell me how much extra cable travel they get with the lever set at it's farthest position from the grip. Thanks in advance.

Too bad they don't just sell the clutch side because the brake lever already has a 5 position adjustment.

I'll be running the Barnett Scorpion soon myself as soon and the motors together, so Im remaining open minded on anything to help the left hand.
Arthritis combined with recently bailing off the back of a crashing Canam Spyder and landing on my left hand has worsened my issues.
I too am hoping I can still utilise my Ezy-clutch
Will be watching this thread.

@Motorbikerx I didn't notice any difference in clutch pull from stock to the new Scorpion, but since the dealership that buggered the stock clutch paid for most of the Scorpion, I went for the upgrade. I'll let you know how it turns out.

@scooter I know, right?

Wouldn't adjustable lever move it closer to the grip. So that would be less throw and your clutch would never disengage all the way. So more creeping at stop lights.
Didn't see where WD said it pulled easier
I'm just guessing

If I'm right, the mid setting on the LSL levers is close to stock. So there are three settings forward and 2 back. It's a theory I am willing to test out. This is why I asked if anyone actually had the levers. If I have to buy them, and return them, c'est la vie.

Interesting,... So your stock clutch is super heavy?
What year is your bike?
My Vegas is 2010 and was a heavy bitch of a clutch ever since buying it at 8500 miles.
After trying out the clutch on other Vic's I realised mine was heavier, mechanic at the dealership said the 2010 had a heavier clutch pull stock.
So I fitted an Ezy-clutch, brought mine back in line with others stock pull.
Which springs did they use in your Scorpion?
There's 4 different ratings of springs supplied to choose from.
Considering you already had a heavy clutch possibly like mine, and you noticed no difference with the Scorpion it'd be interesting to know what poundage springs they used?

Haven't tested mine yet as motors being bored as I write this.
I also bought the Barnett cable, plus 6", to free things up around my Burleigh Bars as I rerouted it a little to make em fit.
And I've bought a 4oz bottle of dry Teflon lube for that too.
Only time will tell as to how heavy mine is.
The mechanic who assembled my Scorpion fitted the lightest and next strongest clutch springs in staggered formation, 3 of each, 41 and 58 lbs from memory.
My memory's flawed but

EDIT....now I've posted I can see your sig.
2012 hey....hmmmmm

My springs are the same as yours, lightest and one level up staggered. Still pretty damn heavy pull, I would say about 18lb pull, stock was 20lb.

Never measured mine, never thought to, nor had the resources to do it.
I'm really looking forward to riding my Vic again, even though I'll be breaking in a fresh motor with forged pistons.
I think I'm gonna enjoy it.
Wether or not I enjoy the clutch pull remains to be seen, or rather, felt.
Landing on my left hand when exiting off the back of a crashing Spyder was not on my plan.....arthritis onset well goes with the Territory and age I guess.
If I'd known I was gonna last this long i could taken better care of myself!
Hopefully in a coupla weeks I'll be able to report on the clutch pull of my setup.
Daresay I'll be on the highway running mostly 3rd and 4th gears and tryna stay away from the clutch.

Spawn, did you consider the hydraulic clutch kit? It's probably not much more money than a new set of levers. I know they have a great feel, because one came installed when I bought my previous used Crossroads. I loved it, but I couldn't justify the cost on my new(er) bike.
