As I said in my previous thread. My wrist cannot take the strain of pulling the clutch handle on my 1987 H-D FXR. I have already replaced the clutch pull assembly underneath the transmission plate where the clutch cable goes in. Its supposed to relieve 40% of the pressure of the clutch pull. It simply is not enough. I have replaced the cable and I have it routed the best possible route. And according to H-D it is the best cable I could have purchased for this model bike. I have been researching installing a hydrolic clutch but I don't think it is going to make that much of a difference. The clutch spring below the derby cover in the clutch basket is stock. Harley says they have a replacement spring for my bike that would help but not by much . I have asking around but no definative answers. Would anyone know of ANY THING that may be of assistance??? Or know of ANY modifications I might do. Or ANY ideas??? Thanks guys Rick B.
