Clutch lever options over stock? Anyone want to share what they are running?
I've done this exploration as well. The stock cable clutch pull is pretty brutal. Also, the disengagement point (or whatever it's called) is so deep in the lever travel (at least for me), that with 2 fingers operating the lever, I would just smash my other two fingers.
What I settled with is trimming the stock lever down to a shorty 2-finger lever. And I heated/bent the shortened tip slightly so my fingers don't slip off the end. I was worried about hand fatigue, which was noticeable for the first few rides, but I've gotten used to it. Context- some enduro racing, trail riding, and lightweight DS riding.
Did some riding this weekend. Ended abruptly, but all is well.
Thanks for the advice. Probably what I will end up doing as well.
Hard to believe that there isn’t a universal lever on the market that someone in 12 years has figured out bolts up though.
