anyway to lighten clutch pull?

HI all!

Well, AHEM... I hope this isn't the ending of my relationship with my 2017-FLTRXS, because I have been diagnosed with tennis elbow and possible carpel tunnel Syndrome (test pending).
SO.. I see the info for Oberon levers which woud be a start, but if there is a way to gain mechanical leverage to lighten the clutch pull, (by about 50%?), it would be a big help.

FYI...I bought the kuryaken trigger levers...FORGET IT! Honestly, they made the pull situation worse, as the index finger area is a bit closer to the bar, but then the lever tapers so far outward I can barely get my last two fingers on it. Add thicker gloves, and I can't get my fingers on it. waste of money for me.

Anyway.. Any and all, if any information, is helpful...or I'm going to be forced to buy a maxi-scooter, change my clothes and act to that of nerdy Mod, and start posting hate mail about Harleys (totaly kidding, obviously)

Thanks!

Absolutely. Just get a Rekluse clutch and be done with it.

I have no first hand knowledge of this product, Burly Brand Easyboy Lite Clutch B17-117.
It does get good reviews and is a lot less expensive then other solutions.
If anyone has one please chime in.
Hope this helps.

Working on that now. I'm in the 3'rd week of ,"Let it rest for 6 weeks, and then we'll see.", phase. So, we'll see

Am researching Rekluse clutches!

i've found the best way to avoid fatigue from shifting is to pick a direction, N-S-E or W and just ride on the expressway (where you don't have to shift) lol

hope you're smiling; hope it works out for you.

Thanks!
Found the Radius-X on Rekluse's website. I'm checking my usual product haunts to see if they carry it. May just be what I need. I can upshift without a clutch...downshifting..need practice.
