    I have an FLH that I have had for years and customized a number of times. A couple of years ago I went with a primo open belt drive which I really like. I'm having an issue with most likely my age (56) and the clutch. You have to go to the gym daily to pull the darn thing. Any hints?

    I have a '68 Shovel with open belt. My clutch is not real hard to pull. Maybe you have heavy duty springs and could change to lighter ones? Or find an old "mouse trap" system to adapt to yours.
