Talking Easy assist clutch pull

I just wanted to post that we just installed my easy assist clutch pull and WOW, what a difference it makes. I was hesitant about the purchase but sure enough clutch went from a motorcycle clutch to a bicycle clutch. So easy to pull now, me being a lady rider, it was not an easy task to keep pulling in that clutch but now it is a breeze. Thanks to Victoryonly.com for the purchase. Made my riding days a lot better.

Sand Man, stay on top of your clutch adjustment, or you'll pay. Don't ask me how I know... - Mike

It's not the cable breakage that's the issue with the ez-clutch. If anything, having that on there reduces the tension on the cable making a break less likely. The bigger problem is clutch lever freeplay. As much as I liked my ez-clutch I ended up taking it off because getting the adjustment just right became more of a pain than it was worth. You need to have some free play in the lever to make sure that the clutch is fully engaged when the lever is released. But you also need to make sure you are getting the clutch fully disengaged with the lever pulled in or you get drag at stops. Too much or not enough free play will lead to premature clutch wear either from slippage under power or drag while stopped. In my case the adjustment range was so tiny I couldn't get it right reliably. That may be because my bike has less than 6k on it so the clutch pack is still nearly new (thick) so your mileage may vary. It's a good product and does what it claims to do, just keep the adjustment in mind and stay on top of it.

yeah as Soofle says stay on top of the adjustment, once its set up properly it'll only take one flat of the adjuster nut either way to bring it back to spot on....mines about due for another tickle-up soon actually, feel a little drag when the levers all the way in.
Too easy just pull the sidecover, Ive ground down the sides of a spanner to get it to fit in on the bottom nut easier as theres not a great deal of sideroom, then crack the locknut with the other spanner.
I find a 2mm allen key a good fit for measuring the freeplay when I pull on the cable at the top lever, then stick the allen key in underneath.
2mm is a bit over factory spec but I like to err on the side of too loose than too tight

I was going to get one for my gunner. I talked to the dealer about it he said he doesn't like them and unless you are having a problem pulling the clutch in he would stay away from it.

It is basically a longer lever that bolts to the clutch lever on the motor. Being longer it gives more leverage. ... be sure the cable comes out of the cable housing centered and not rubbing to one side
