lighter clutch springs?

anyone use them? have any experience with them?

i'm looking to make my clutch action significantly lighter...as a freestyle rider, you are constantly using the clutch/handbrake in a wheelie.

i have an ez pull clutch already.

my current thoughts are to cut each spring slightly, remove a coiuple, or find lighter springs from another bike.

not too concerned with clutch slippage...the most torque that is applied is during drifting, wheelies aren't a concern bc of the gearing i run.

thanks

How about spacers between spring "hat" and clutch body? Check clearance to clutch cover.
Or remove two (or three or four) springs? Or is it too much?

@ArmoniVisuals This should get you started.

I saw one yesterday of him on a K16 bagger. No wheelies, but lots of drifts.
bennymx and wfo439 like this.
