H TJ, Go by the Honda shop and ask for a handful of extra bolts and crate bolts. Usually they have tons of bolts from accessories that people buy and all of the fasteners aren't used. I have had a couple of boxes over the years and am ready to go look again. I like the chrome bolts... they look pimp on a dirty old XR... The crates have many, many bolts that are just set aside or thrown out.

Or is there a way to make it hydraulic?

Any Ideas?
I used to used one on my Banshee (gasp.. yes an ATV) back in my ATV racing days. My problem was I was using different controls with cr80 levers and that worked good for me but your clutch should pull easy. Somthing is wrong.
One thing to watch out for if you use that is that you will not have as much throw on the clutch. Meaning the clutch will pull easier but the arm will not move as much. Thats the price you pay for gaining the mechanical advantage.

True that, but with careful setup and monitoring it is a great mod... I have had it on my bike since 1997....

Replace the clutch cable. The have a history of getting very hard to pull and sometimes, in my case, release completely and cook a clutch. Mine was lubed off and on it's whole life and still did it. Installed a new one and the pull was amazingly easy.

So I'm having a minor problem with the install of my Acerbis tank.
The "Y" connector. Where do folks usually bring it together where the hoses won't melt from any heat? Any pics would be great.

Other than that, install wasn't too hard. Because of the 100+ temps here, I just put the tank out on the back porch in the morning and when I came home it spread over the frame real easy. I was actually surprised at how soft the plastic was.

I put my Y on the left side about two inches from the left petcock. I loop the fuel line from the right side up over the carburetor then down to the Y
I'll try to get a pic for you tomorrow.

Mine is in just about the same place as mcLeod's. I have had my tank for over a year and i have not had any issues whatsoever with the Y getting hot or anything. My only suggestion would be to use gas line from AutoZone or somewhere similar and do not use the gas line that comes with the tank. that stuff is JUNK! Good Luck!

Ditto. I even built a brass T connector out of plumbing parts from home depot. The hoses and Y connector that ship with the tank looked really weak.

I have done all the cable cleaning and all That I can do on the beast. And is still tight! And, I have cleaned the clutch out in the case.

I would like to extend the arm. But, I don't know who can do that around? Looks cheeper to do Moose easy pull. Who has used it?

I use one of these:http://www.motionpro.com/motorcycle/...ategory/cable/

clean the cable with:http://www.motosport.com/dirtbike/pr...talogId=110517

Then lube with:http://www.motosport.com/dirtbike/pr...segment=badger


Also, I extended the arm at the case by 3/8" and I have really easy, smooth action with even heavy springs... I would look at the cable binding and lube it up at least. Truly makes a difference.
