    Hey boys and gurls,
    The wifes been complaining about clutch hand gettin tired.
    So, I changed all 3 holes ('02 Dyna Lowrider), adjusted clutch lubed all cables and adjusted the clutch cable.
    It still is pretty hard to pull.
    I seem to remember reading about a lever or bracket attached to the cable to help fix this but I can't find it again.
    Any help would be appreciated

    When doing the clutch adjustment after the installation of the EZ clutch, the adjustment is just a bit more sensitive because of the lesser throw of the actuator .
    You shouldn't make the adjustment in the primary area any more than 1/2 turn out after lightly seating the pushrod adjuster otherwise you may not get full separation of the plates.

    I run the EZ clutch in all the bikes I have had and it works as advertised. I used a scale attached to the clutch lever and after a before and after measurement, it took off about 3-4 LBS of clutch pull. It may not sound like much but in stop and go traffic you will see the difference then.
