Is there a way to reduce the clutch pull? 3 Years, 7 Months ago  
long story short,
I screwed up both arms at work 7 years ago, since then I have had to get rid of my R6, One of the saddest days in my life.

I have constant pain in my entire back, sciatica. just within the last 2 or 3 years have developed pain around both elbows, The pain is bad enough to where i can't pull in my clutch without severe pain.

So my question is,

What can i do to reduce the pulling force needed to disengage the clutch?

after getting rid of the R6 i will not make the same mistake, I will do everything i can to continue to ride.

i have had this R* going on 4 years now and have under 1900 miles on it because the pain gets to much to ride.

Please Help me Stay on 2 wheels!!

I knew a guy years ago that had a cam system on the clutch that made a easy pull, don't know how to make it but I would look that direction.

I've got to figure something out, I have had to give up 95% of the things i like as i can no longer do them, Riding is one that i am not willing to give up.

There is a mod to make a auto clutch. Not a do it yourself thing, clutch basket has to be sent out. No clutch to pull

CleaverLever makes a clutch handle for the V-Stars. Reduces pull about 30%. Had one on my 650 that was great. Contact them and see if they will do a Roadstar one for you.
