AIM centrifugal clutch kit problem??

Has anyone had any problems with their AIM clutch kit not letting you shift? I put a 107 kit in and installed the AIM kit. Since then, my shifter is noticeably harder to pull up when riding somewhat aggressively. When I really give it the juice and try to shift at high RPM it won't shift at all. It almost seems as the clutch never disengages when I pull the lever! I've tried letting the RPM's drop when shifting but it seems I lose so many RPM that its not worth having. My adjustment is spot on according to the installation instructions...anybody else have this issue?

We must have installed over 150-175 of those over the years, since they came to market.
No problems here.

We have installed and sold tons of these units never an issue.
Here are some pics of install.

you must make sure your clutch is adjusted before install it makes it easier.

Then you will install AIM lock over the spring. and good to go>>>>>>>>

Thanks Frank! It was adjusted before install but I'll check it again just to make sure.

You can't shift at all, or it's just difficult?? You can shift even without the clutch, put some medium pressure on the shifter and back off the throttle, it'll shift, may not be super pretty but it will shift. OR, under full throttle, put medium pressure on the shifter, hold the throttle wide open, and just flip the clutch lever real quick. Again, it will shift, maybe not gracefully, but it will shift.
If it simply won't shift under these conditions, you've got something other than the clutch causing problems.

do you have the aim unit 'centered' properly? i noticed that there is a little play and if you don't set it just right, it can catch on those fingers. don't know if that would have the same effect that you have, but certainly is easy enough to check.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

Tdk....I'm very familiar with shifting with no clutch. This thing, whether the clutch is pulled or blipping the throttle, WILL NOT shift above 5000 RPM. Even at lower RPM (3000-3500) it is fairly difficult to pull the shifter up. It's like the freaking thing is completely locked at high RPM.

Skratch...I'll check the centering of it. Mine was pretty snug to fit.

Thanks for the help guys!
