Anyone Experience Stiff Clutch on WR?
Posted January 22, 2006 - 10:12 AM
I can barely pull the clutch in without terrrible pain in my fingers (some sort of muscle tear it feels like). The Rekluse clutch seems interesting, but also is very expensive. Is there a way to "butter-up" my lever so it's smoother like on the CR's? Those are like "butter"! It's a new bike so I'm surprised that the tension seems much higher than what I feel when on a CR, for example.

So I'd have to drain the oil first in order to remove the cover, correct? Also, can you be a little more specific regarding the "clutch packing" order and what that means to a layperson like myself. I can work on bikes, but I'm not familar with what you are describing to to do? Any help would be appreciated. The lever pulls in ok, but it seems a little stiff and seems to be getting a little more difficult to pull now with less than 100 miles on the bike. Again, the Honda clutch levers' seems to pull like butter in comparison and my left hand gets worked by the end of the day as a result.
It almost sounds like the retention in the clutch packing is in the wrong order. It might be worth your time to pull the clutch cover and verify the order. My bikes all have easy clutch pull, except for my Raptor, which only had the problem after I changed the clutch. Turned out I put the spring in the wrong order. Corrected the problem and the clutch pull was spot on again.
