I have a beautiful 1987 H-D FXR. It runs JUST FANTASTIC! BUT... I cannot take the strain of pulling the clutch lever any longer. I contacted Harley and they told me about a kit I could purchase and install on my bike that would reduce up to 40% of clutch lever pressure. Yes , I purchased the kit and took the derby cover off to install it. Just to find out the bike already has the exact same kit already installed on it. Needless to say . I would hate to see what this clutch pull would be without this kit!! Its not enough relief on the wrist. Now my wrist has developed a large bump on it at the base of my thumb. AND IT HURTS! I REALLY like my bike but this issue is starting to become a deal breaker! I would HATE to have to sell my bike simply because of this problem. Today was a BEAUTIFUL day really great riding weather!!! And all I could do was sit and look at my bike. Because of the pain in my wrist! How frustrating!!! My friend has a 1998 Kawasaki Concours. It has a 5 position adjustable clutch lever. His bike is NO PROBLEM to pull the clutch lever. But he also has a hydrolic clutch verses mine. Mine is mechanical. in other words... it has a cable. Does anyone have ANY suggestions!? Or any opinions or anything that may be of assistance? I am aware of a multi postion clutch lever for some model Harleys but mine is a 87 and a mechanical pulled clutch, not hydrolic like my friends bike. I also have heard of the auto shifter but I don't think they produce one for my model bike.
