Default too much tension on clutch lever???

is there a way I can loosen the tention on the clutch lever. it feels kinda stiff.. I am not talking about the adjustment on the lever itself and the one near the engine cover..

After a day at the track my joints are swollen lol. especially the 2 fingers I use to pull in the clutch..

or do I need aftermarket levers pazzo etc.?? to they work easier?

If you are looking for an easier pull on the clutch lever, then you can buy something called an EZ pull lever. They are popular w/Stunters. They're also used quite a bit on dirtbikes and ATV's. I use one, and I love it.

We have a lot of guys get the CRG "SS" or "GP" Clutch Lever, which has an adjustable location for changing leverage.

The springs in your clutch control the stiffness you speak of. Try to find some shorter ones or some people just squeeze them with pliers and use a little heat to weaken them but I'm sure that they make a kit with softer springs.
