Aim Light Force 2019 Road Glide Special

Good afternoon. After listening to the advice from this and other forums I installed the Aims Light Force. Install went well with no hiccups. I bled the line from the slave up using a syringe. I did have to remove the reservoir and place it above the handgrip to keep it at a better level. All went well. The ride was instantly improved. Reduced friction and a travel (engagement about an inch from the grip) that was fantastic. Well 200 miles later the reduced friction seems good but the engagement point is at the end of the grip. So maybe gonna pull it off and put the stocker back on. For $280 I will save my bucks for something else. Checked the fluids and all is well. I've read on a few other forums that the slip assist clutch might have some bearing on this. Ive also heard that the some of the replacements that people have received from Aim have had the same results. Just wondering why the different results on similar bikes especially the same year. Any input??

I have a 2018 RGS and I have the first version of the AIM, with 3000+ miles on it so far. The friction zone did work its way out on mine as well, though the effort to work the clutch stayed the same. So I installed a Softbrake lever and brought the friction zone back closer to the bars and it has stayed there since. So far so good, no leaks or other issues. I am still happy with it.

So I spoke with AIM. They are still testing and trying to figure out why the friction zones are reverting back to stock on some models. They are aware of the problem. Suggested I return the item for testing and they will send me a new/or refurbished one. I will give it another shot and let everyone know. Thanks.

I run the Muller Hydro Clutch in mine. Installed it before my trip I’m currently on. Have 1k miles on so far and it is working great. Hope it keeps up where the engagement is.

I did the AIM kit and the Oberon adjustable levers from hogleverage.com. The AIM kit itself has worked great so far (2300) miles. It gave me a nice friction zone and brought the grab in about half way. Combined with the adjustable lever, mine starts grabbing about 1/4-1/2 inch off the grip. I love it. Hopefully AIM works to remedy your problem.
