Have you looked at the clutch assembly? Maybe your basket is worn or grooved, making things hang up when they shouldn't. That is where I would start because it's easy and free (as long as you are careful and don't tear the clutch cover gasket, even if you do it's only $6 to replace). Next check your cable routing (make sure there are no kinks), lube the cable, and if that doesn't work maybe try a new cable. You could also try an 00 clutch arm in place of your 01, the 00 is longer and gives more leverage than the 01 piece. You could also drill your clutch lever to move the point where the cable hooks closer to the pivot point of the lever. Satch0922 did the 00 arm and redrilled lever on his 01, I know if you PM him he'd be happy to send you pics and help you out :thumbsup:

Thanks Cowboy,

I will look at the clutch assembly, but as I just bought the bike I don't know my way around a YZ yet. Will have to consult the owners manual, but I am a gear head and very good around engines and things so don't figure I will have a problem. I think I will look at the basket, drill the lever arm since its cheap and lube and clean the cable. If that fails then I might invest in a new cable and actuator arm.

BTW, to lube the cable do I just unhook from the lever and actuator arm and clean with contact/brake cleaner then lube?? Sorry I am new to this stuff. :thumbsup:

They sell things to make your clutch pull easier, I want to invest in this too.

Yep, that's what most of us do.
