Default Re: Cheapo clutch fix

I did regular adjustments on the cable and flower nut. I replaced the bucking bar (plunger?) with one that I fabbed myself so that I could customize the length. Clutch still would not fully release consistently at stop lights. If I loosened the flower nut enough to allow the clutch to release as desired, it would slip while accelerating and cruising.
Tired of there constant problems and adjustments, I modified the clutch lever as shown above. I have also installed a centrigugal clutch and have been happy with it.
