TL125 super hard clutch pull, "Now What"

I got a 74 TL125, it runs great. I want to set it up for my daughter but the clutch pull is way too hard. I got a an easy clutch but didnt make hardly any differance. Can I put in lighter springs? Has anyone else did something to lighten it up?
Thanks

Oil the cable and grease the moving parts, it will make an amazing difference.

Or putting on a new cable from Motion Pro, an EZ Pull and lengthening the arm.

Hi,
I tried to answer with a photo, but I am not sure I'm allowed, because it's my first post; I just found this forum today: I am french and offen on honda-125xl dot com forum...

You can solder or screw an arm extension on engine side: I did it on my XLS to get more progressivity ...

If a new cable and lubing everything doesn't work....
We used a Magura hydraulic clutch kit on my wifes 400EX to fix this issue.
Pulls with one finger now.

Probably no kit for this bike but a simple bracket to mount the slave cylinder would be easy to make.

Chinese pit bike hydraulic clutch kit may well fit, and is only about 1/10 of the cost of the Magura ones.
