Clutch Perch

10 posts in this topic

I crashed and managed to break my decompression lever and the Honda shop wants 22 bucks for a new one. I guess the knockoff brand levers don't make a decompression lever for the BRP.

I found a cool MSR clutch lever and hotstart for 10 bucks more then a new lever. Is there any reason this setup WONT work for the clutch and decompression on a 650R?

Cool, thank you. My main concern was if the little lever would have enough throw to work the decompression mechanism. It looks like it would and I wanted to see if anyone has tried this and found it didn't work.

Thanks again!

Update:

The hotstart lever above doesn't work for the decompression. LOL

The throw and/or leverage ratio of the little hot start lever isn't sufficient to operate the decompression. Once I had it hooked up it felt like I was going to break something when trying to operate. On the bright side my KX250 now has a nice clutch lever.

It really is a nice lever that seems to be built with good quality. Fortunatly it came with a second piece that eliminated the hotstart so I was able to use it on my other bike. Oh well.

I use an ASV lever unbreakable lever/hotstart for my decompression lever on my XR600 and it works fine.
