Heavy clutch

Lube the clutch cable thoroughly. The difference is huge.

Subject: Heavy clutch

The clutch on the race bike has been getting continually heavier through the
year.  At this point it's pretty much the heaviest clutch I've felt on an
SV.

 

Details:

-          Lever/perch moves freely

-          The cable is the new motion pro (routed between the fork tubes,
right side of the steering head, then between the carbs)

-          The screw assembly has fresh bearings, grease, and is correctly
adjusted.

-          Barnett plates

-          I recently swapped from Barnett springs to stock springs, with no
effect.

 

There is some notching of the clutch basket fingers.  Is that a possible
culprit?  That doesn't seem right to me, since the clutch feels the same on
/ off / in gear / out of gear

 

Other ideas?

 

Thanks,
Greg
