asv clutch perch vs. works connection perch

12 posts in this topic

iv been hearing from my friends that the works connection pro clutch perch assembly has a very good reputation and improves the softness of the pull. iv been pricing some assemblies out and have wondered if the asv clutch perch kit is just as good or better. the reason i ask is because i hear the works connection has a ball bearing inside to make it a easier pull or smoother. does anyone know if the asv has the same feature? its for a 01 yz426 if that matters.

Awesome question. I have felt the Wc but not the C5 pro from asv. I can get the ASv much cheaper but I would like to hear opinions also.

IMO the works connection elite perch is a much better product.It seems the ASV perches wear down from the lever being made of a harder material than the perch thus creating excessive up and down slop in the lever.The Works is a better product but does have a slightly harder clutch pull because of the shorter lever.Throw a full size sunline folding lever on there and you have a real light clutch pull that will last forever.

I heard that the GYTR perch is awesome. I wanted the ARC but don't like the hot start on top as it is on the arc. Probably go with the Works Connection.

my asv levers has the hot start on the bottom,just put them on, but loving them so far:thumbsup:

I've used them both and have to say that I prefer the WC Elite lever/perch/hot start combo over all others. Great product!

Just got mine (F3 ASV levers) and installed them. Notice that the slot that holds the hotstart cable is way larger than it needs to be, so the cable moves around and doesn't fit snug - not sure how much dust/dirt it'll pick up, as the stock was well sealed with the rubber boot.

i use the f3 series. i've broken the clutch perch before but that was a bad crash. ASV quickly replaced it at no charge. other than that, it has been reliable.

Why don't you try my mod to improve the clutch pull before you go out and buy another lever, this doesn't cost a dime and works like a charm.

I have a 02 YZ426 and it made an amazing difference, went riding with my buddies and the have an 00 YZ and it was like a brick, he felt mine and was in love. Try it now.

I can't address the issue of comparing the ASV perch with any of the others, but I have the hinged clutch lever only in the the stock perch on my son's bike, and the full C5 perch with the hot start lever on mine. Both these levers were installed new on the last bike we each had, used for about a year or more, then moved to their current locations. This makes each of them about 2 1/2 years old, and they have been through numerous little crashes severe enough to have caused damage to a standard lever. Both, or all four, since we run the brake levers, too, are in great shape, and are not worn or sloppy beyond reasonable limits.

Frankly, letting yourself get distracted by a lever that jiggles vertically a little is a bit nit-picky IMO, but that's maybe just me.

I got the msr pro raptor and it made an incredable difference in clutch pull on my bike. I was going to do the clutch mod but when I took off the lever I didn't feel there was enough material there to add more holes.
