    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

    I take it you have already fitted a new cable?

    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:clap.

    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.
