i had an indy do it with my help lol in lieu of getting the free warranty repair.

didn't have to remove the head pipe but had to loosen the crossover.

i pulled the pipe away from the transmission while he worked the cover off.
off with the old, on with the new, then used syringe to push the fluid up into the reservoir.
used the new fluid from HD

lot less force required to move the clutch lever (2-fingers)
a little more friction zone, but still kinda strange feeling when shifting.

in my opinion, the updated spring on the basket side would prolly make it feel right.

your '19 prolly has the stronger clutch spring in it.

Installed on mine - a bit of a PITA to install (hard as hell to get enough clearance to get the cover off) but LOVE the result. The friction zone is way better, and just a lot more pleasant to ride in any kind of traffic.

I actually can't believe you missed the 2 long threads about this that were the main topic for a while. Lol!

One thread had to do with the clutch actuator recall that turned into an AIM thread.

I did mine while I did my cam swap so I already had the exhaust removed which made the install simple. I used a syringe as mentioned above to push the fluid in which made it simpler in my opinion. The only problem was that the pull was so light I kept thinking I must have air in the system and kept bleeding it. Finally I took the derby cover off to see if I had plate movement which I did. All was good when I put it all back together and he pull is so light. 2 fingers light in fact! Makes it much mo betta in traffic. I highly recommend it.

I run the Lightforce, would never go back to the harley cylinder.

The light force cylinder and a damper shim from a 19, make the 17 -18 clutches almost perfect.

I have had on for about 5 months, only about 4K miles. Absolutely love it, definitely better than stock. I will be putting about 10k miles on the bike in the next 3 months, guess I will really know after that.
