If you have the equipment, you can smooth the contacting surfaces of the clutch actuator cam and the pin (bucking bar) and dramatically decrease the friction in the clutch actuating components. I use a Dremel sanding disc to round and smooth those parts then polish on a bench buffer before reassembly. Lubrication is essential on all parts, cam, bar and ball bearing. You'll be amazed at the ease with which the clutch lever pulls after you've done this simple modification.
