Re: '08 nightster clutch
Welcome to HDTalking Dark1...you might want to try adjusting the clutch freeplay and make sure the friction point is in the "middle of the lever travel". Since your bike is new, you may want to rotate the control higher so you reach the lever with a level wrist. It should fall naturally with your index and middle finger, the freeplay approx. 1/8" before you actually feel the clutch pressure. Check out this post on adjustment and further down for video:

BTW, there is also an EZ Clutch Kit, if you are having a problem with pulling it in if it is too stiff or your hands are small, as a Harley' grip diameter is typically 1 1/8" to 1 1/4" bar grip verses metrics 7/8" to 1" bar/grip size.
