New T'bird clutch issues
I have developed fairly serious osteoarthritis in the left wrist under the thumb (bone-to-bone contact, no cushioning at all). The result of that is that the shift lever on the 2010 T'bird is rapidly becoming an issue, not so much in normal cruising, but all the up-and-down shifting in the twisties - especially when I have to wear the much-heavier insulated winter gloves.
Not only is the lever itself bigger and the reach distance further from the grip than it was on my '06 America, the clutch springs in that 1700cc motor are significantly stiffer than in the 790cc America for obvious reasons.
Questions: (1) Does anyone have any experience with the Moose Racing Easy Pull Clutch System? (2) Does anyone have any experience with any type of adjustable-lever controls, no matter the brand, as it would apply to this bike? Any other suggestions or solutions are welcome.
