Wow,

I just got a 2012 WR and thought the clutch pull was really easy.

It is about half as difficult as my 03.

Are you sure you don't have something adjusted wrong??

Adjustment is fine. After an hour or so of slipping/ feathering it is tiring.My buddy has a 08 RMZ and he changed his out to a Sunline I think it was a big difference when we swapped bikes for a bit and he commented that it felt like his before he changed the lever

Streamline makes a very nice clutch pearch assembly that I saw a small improvement with on my YZ. I had an '05 WR and if you're '12 is anything like it just go for the Magura hydraulic clutch kit. No cable operated clutch will ever match the feel of and ease of a hydraulic unit. My hand and foremarm use to pump up so bad wrestling that pig through the tight stuff.

Yes. Having had juice units on my last 3 Huskys it is very tempting and i have found a source in California for the Magura

I've got a Rekluse on my cable operated '06 WR, and while not everyone likes the auto-clutches, the clutch pull when I do use it, is virtually non-existant. It's so light, that I think I might be able to mentally telepathy it in & out. (Well, maybe not me, but it is ridiculously easy)

Have you tried one yet? They truely are remarkable. I almost never have to manually clutch the bike, as the engine does it for you.

I have the Revloc auto clutch I love it and now the clutch pull feels like a broken cable. I have had friends go to move my bike not knowing I have it and come back and tell me my clutch cable was broken. so I play along and go over start up the bike and drive away watching thier jaw drop then they just have to try it. the only draw backs I have found is when you stop in the woods on a little hill you don't have 1st gear to stop it from rolling off the kick stand, but you soon learn. also you can not pop start the bike, but with a battery and a kick I have yet needed to. yes, you do still have engine breaking.

RSC on. Awesome fit and finish and feel. Only drawback is that I had to adjust cable and lever almost to the max for proper clutch disengagement.May contact them to see if they can whip up another adjustment screw with 1/4" more thread
