Default Easy Clutch

This afternoon I installed the Victoryonly easy clutch arm. Took all of about 5 minutes. Mostly loosening the clutch cable behind the rear cylinder. What a difference! This is without a doubt the easiest clutch pull I've ever had on a motorcycle! One finger easy. around $50 bucks and it looks good with nice chrome or black finish. Why buy a chrome cover when you can have both for about the same price!!!

I'm curious how this eases the clutch pull besides loosening the cable.

It removes a significant amount of travel in the clutch. Beware of premature clutch failure. (if it were me I would just exercise my grip) and leave the clutch alone. Better to build up some strength in the hand than replace the clutch much sooner than necessary.

It increases the length of the clutch arm thereby increasing mechanical advantage. Conversely, it requires a longer pull which means the the overall rotation of the clutch arm is decreased when the clutch lever is pulled in. Some people have found that adjusting the clutch very becomes difficult after installing one of these as the line between too tight and too loose becomes very fine.

I too heard that these arms decrease the amount of clutch pull thereby not completely disengaging the clutch leading to premature clutch failure .... This isn't an issue for me as I have big strong man-hands .

No mate, its free as a bird, had the cable disconnected at both ends a few times now, to lube the cable ends, (every time I change the oil) and there's no perceptible drag on the cable....it's inside the clutch somewhere.
The Judge I test rode 600 miles had a real light clutch...the ones on the showroom floor at Victory in Brisbane that I've sat on and pulled the clutch on too....actually I don't see why anyone would need to lighten a Victory clutch anyway!..theyre light as a feather anyway
Except for mine!
my old Yam XS 650 had a very heavy clutch too so Im used to it, but starting to get a bit of arthritis in my hands and it certainly don't help.
