    Using an EZ pull contraption there is a much, much smaller window to get the lever free play adjustment correct. It's not bad is just a smaller window.

    Run from that thought, for every successful installation I've read, there are 10 horror stories.

    Rumor has it a Barnett clutch cable makes the pull easier. That is going to be one of my winter projects. @PreachSF is more informed than I and can chime in on that.

    Yes. we ( Conquest Customs ) sell the Barnett HE Clutch Cable .. it slides a bit easier than the stock cables from Victory. We also sell the LSL adjustable levers for 08 and Up without Hyd Clutch.

    STAY AWAY FROM THE "EASY CLUTCH" GARBAGE .. ive seen those things burnt out more clutches in 9 years than i ever thought possible

    I've had mine on for over 50,000 miles. No issues with the original clutch. As noted you have to pay attention to it. Mine is set so pulled all the way back to the grip I have no creep when putting in it gear. I check it once a month. It's starts to engage less that 1/2 inch out. And the horror storied are not 1 to 10. Those that installed one and burned their clutch up should be noted before taking any advice from them. Like the ones that tell you you'll trash your motor running full synthetics. Just ignore it. 50,000 miles no issues. Running synthetics since 2000 miles. Bike still makes the new whirling sound when you first start it up with no clackity clack lifter noise.

    I doubt that I would have ever tried the EZ pull if it had not already been installed on my Vision 8ball when I bought it. Never had any problem with it. Grown to really like it especially as I pretty much stay in gear until I park. Been rear ended and just like to stay in gear as it may give me an option if I see them coming. Couldn't agree more with what @Blowndodge said about the EZ Pull and Full Synthetic Oil. Motul rules!

    It's too bad the Easy pulls got a bad rep for toasting clutches when it was the weak azz spring that would'nt allow any tension on the cable. I upgraded my spring and have used the Easy pull with slight tension on my cable for about 30K miles and crossing the country twice with no clutch failures.

    People are confusing the spring tension on the shaft that enters the side case as the actual clutch spring. It there just to keep the clutch handle from flopping or rattling around. If adjusted like I outlined above you won't have an issue.

    I put on on my 2011 KP shortly after I bought it.
    My wife didn't want one on her bike even though her BW had a very hard pull.
    One day I said to her hey pull the lever on my bike and tell me it is not way easier than your bike.
    Her next sentence was, Get me one of those.
    We are both still running the original clutch.

    I tried the EZ pull and was not happy with it. Too much wasted time adjusting it. Changed to the Barnett cable on Conquest Customs advice. Definite pull reduction and no more fiddling.
