Motorcycle Clutch Levers - I won’t take them for granted

By James - 2/14/2007

Before my ride home I noticed this VFR750 parked next to mine. Half the clutch lever was broken off. It looks like this guy has ridden this way for a while. I tried shifting gears on my bike and pulling the clutch only using one or two fingers. It is hard! Whoever rides this bike must have a huge forearm. I shifted fine two or three times, but after that my fingers were done. Take a look:

Never take your clutch lever for granted!

  1. the vfr has a hydraulic clutch, now if you have a cable clutch, you will need about 4 times more force to disengage your drive.

    my hydraulic clutch on my fzr1000 i can use with just one finger. Try out a hydraulic clutch next time you have the chance and i swear you’ll love the difference.
