Does anyone have any info on these devices? Their claim states... It will reduce up to 50% of the clutch lever pull. Being that the VPC operates on centrifugal force pressurizing the clutch plates. What good would this device be when the engine is at idle or low rpm? I can understand how it would help to engage the clutch plates as rpm increases. But I do not understand how it would assist in lowering the actual clutch lever pull pressure. At low engine rpm the actual work performed in the clutch basket relies on the clutch diaphram spring pressure and the pull of the hand lever completely excluding the centrifugal force of the variable pressure clutch plate????
