I've decided that I would like a better clutch hook-up since I ride 2-up a lot and have been looking into the Sherms Gorilla Clutch kit. I have read that the clutch effort to pull the lever is a lot more. This concerns me b/c I have a steel plate in my forearm (from totaling a ford focas on my klr650) that bothers me if I have to do a lot of hard squeezing...keep your dirty thoughts to yourself, lol. :nono:

So to all you Gorilla Clutch users, what is the pull effort like? An older harley? Would like to know the feel before I do the install and find out I can't do it. I've also read that you can add 2 stock steel plates to make it a little easier, what does it feel like then?

If it's too hard on my arm, what would be a better alternative other than stock? meanstreak 1500 spring w/ stock plates or barnett clutch kit?

Texas23, you from Magnolia, TX? I was just out that way yesterday out past Waller at the Thirsty Parot Bar & Grill where the San Jacinto High Rollers was putting on a benefit for the Fallen Soldiers Foundation. We also stopped at the Texas Thunder on the way.

Anyways, thanks for the tip and definitely looking into it. And the impact wrench won't be a problem w/ my 60 gallon air compressor and air tools in my cluttered man cave.

Texas23 when you say gadgets spacers, are you talking about the washers that are $25 for the set on the gadget site? Got a 1500 spring on the way...

Does anybody know how to get ahold of "Judge"? I've tried emailing him but have gotten no responses.

Hi j-ball. What is it with the frikken KLR 650? Mine spat me off and I've moved onto the meanie. My problem is using front brake coz of damaged right arm. Can we sart a petition to ban the KLR (or at least start a petition for ex KLR riders to HTFU)?:eek:
LOL, what really sucked about my situation is my bike only had 3200 miles on her and I had paid it off a few weeks before. Two days after I got out of the hospital I got the title to it and it was sitting in my shop in pieces. I rebuilt her and still riding her. Just wanted to get a cruiser, so I went w/ the meanie.
