Hydraulic Clutch

Good evening. So a couple opinions on here. What is more successful, Aims Light Force or reduced reach handles? I dont have problems with the clutch effort but do have a problem with the small friction zone. Do these products tackle both issues? I also read about adding a plate to the clutch pack? Maybe this is the more affordable way. Idk. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again.

You already have the upgraded spring in the clutch pack so you're good there. If it were me I would install the AIM LF. Well, I did and I love it. You will not be sorry you installed it either.

BTW, it will also move the friction zone closer to the grip.

If you never have felt the Aim system its worth it just to feel the clutch pull. Pretty amazing. Lighter than the new softails in my opinion and they are pretty light. Not sure if it can help with reach.

Another option is to add the Oberon adjustable reduced reach clutch lever.

I just installed Soft Brake reduced reach levers on my CVO and I can not believe how much of a difference it made in the pull on my clutch lever. So if you haven't looked at his stuff before I would take a look at Soft Brake

Muller is offering the hydro clutch slave much like the AIM light force. I’ve seen a few folks on the boards had some problems with the first gen of the AIM, so I’ve been waiting to see if anyone has feedback on the Muller.

I think I posted on another one of these threads. There's a guy on the CVO forum that went with that one and He's perfectly happy with it.

Be careful using the SoftBrake lever if you have anything other than standard size grips. I tried one. I have Avon grips with a palm swell. The bike would not start in gear with the clutch lever pulled in and finding neutral was a nightmare. I went with the 2019 spacer and all is well now.

I don't know what the hype is with the AIM. Unless it widens the friction zone, I think the clutch is fine.

I've got the AIM - does well for both reduced effort and expanded friction zone. Effort was fine in normal riding but in stop and go, stock quickly became an effort.

I put a softbrake on the wifes freewheeler and what a difference. I immediately bought the RSD adjustable levers for my RGS and loved them. One of the first things I bought for my 19 Freewheeler was the softbrake clutch lever. The RSD didnt fit. I wont ever have a bike without them again. Its night and day. I have the PM Renthal wrapped grips and theres no issue.
