I had to replace clutch pack, stock center spring plate came apart. The new pack came with new diaphragm spring, heavier, clutch works great, but the lever is so stiff, causes much pain, (carpal tunnel in both wrists, post surgery not much better), I'm wondering if there isn't some kind of device I can use to aid in this stiff lever pull. Don't want to replace spring plate, home made compression tool barely worked, and I want my clutch to last. If there is no such device, I will bite the bullet and hopefully not the athsfault too. :). 07 sportster 1200C. Wouldn't trade it for anything, not an option. But if anyone knows of a fix for this it would make my world so much better.

After Chemo wife lost the strength in her hands. She went from a Deluxe to a trike, 96 cid to 103. We bought the clutch spring for a 96 inch engine and put it in her
trike. Worked great, she was able to operate the clutch with no problems. We sold that trike with almost 60,000 miles on it and had no clutch slippage with the lighter
spring.

Hope that helps
