“Easy pull clutch” advice!
on: 03 January, 2022, 07:09:36 AM
Hi all

Has anyone ever installed an “easy pull clutch device” on the 1050 se 2012? 

Having carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands I was wondering if this makes the cabled clutch pull any easier?

“Moose racing” and other aftermarket types are available

No, but am watching with interest...   I guess it will reduce the amount of travel at the clutch end, so might need a longer pull to fully release?

Why would it not be made to go at the engine end? Can it be made to do that? I guess not due to the shape of the nipple. But it would make more sense surely.

Somebody posted a cheap fix done at the engine end some time ago, not sure who, think it might have been that lass who was using bucketsful of oil.

I took note at the time 'cos I was suffering CTS at time, fortunately it went away after several months.

That was ‘dreamer’ I think, if you want to look the threads up again Paul.

Thanks Mike, but ok now, most seem to suffer CTS until an operation, I was lucky, it went of its own accord. Think it was around 9 months though, very unpleasant & spoilt riding the TS with its heavy cable clutch.

Looking at the short cable supplied with the kit, it looks like removing the barrel would give you the end you need. But, you'd need to add a barrel to the clutch cable. I've seen things that do this but it'd be tough to fab one with enough strength if you cut through the side of the barrel to make it a slip-in. I'd say it would work if you epoxy-filled it to stop any fatigue but it's all getting nasty at that point. BUT, if you had a cable with a barrel at both ends ...... Bob's your aunties husband.

Much easier to lengthen the lever at the engine end. Ob's reduces pushrod movement, but if yer struggling, worth a try.
