Got a wild hair and replaced the clutch spring with a Barnett spring. Clutch now engages just off the grip and has a much improved positive solid feeling, pull on lever increased but it's not to bad. Was going to do the judges washer but they were $25 plus shipping which isn't bad but I found the Barnett on Ebay for $17 shipped, also replaced gasket. I like the upgrade, had to move my sons 2007 Classic 1500 back into the shed after I replaced mine and wow what a difference, his clutch feels like mine used to, soft and releasing way to far out. Easy install.
