Clutch is too hard!

ok that should say clutch is too hard...My buddy has an 02 ultra and his clutch is way too stiff. We are suprising him with some mods when he gets back from his chemotherapy. Is there anything i can do to lighten it up?

You need to take the clutch lever loose and generously lube the cable. I had that issue once and a simple application of oil down the cable housing straightened that right out. Good luck to your friend with his treatments. Cancer SUCKS!

Harley does have a clutch mod you can make to older models. I forget the part number, but what it does is replace some parts inside to make the pull easier. I found this when I expressed an interest in a 2000 Ultra once. Then I got on and pulled the clutch. Nixed the bike right there, but the sales dude came up with the mod from a Harley catalog. Check your local dealers primo parts expert, they probably know about it.

"Church is too hard"???

In theory, Theory and Reality are the same. In reality, they are different.

Send a note to an admin. Have them delete the other thread, and rename this one.

try this part http://www.harley-davidson.com/gma/g...bmLocale=en_US it is stock on 06 later bikes , I have also heard that the newer clutch cables are better than out old ones , the newer ones are supposed to have a teflon liner for easier pull but I have not confirmed if they will fit pre 07 bikes .
