Insanely stiff clutch 1600
Recently acquired a 2003 Vulcan 1600 Classic. Clutch was slipping under load, I quickly came to the conclusion it was likely the clutch spring. I figured since I was taking it apart to put a Barnett Spring in, mine as well swap the steels and clutch plates. Afterwards the clutch handle was so stiff I just about needed two hands to work it. Now...this thing has no slip now that’s for sure, but it’s unbearable. I know this Barnett is gonna be stiffer but this is not right. I also put a stock lever on because the guy before put sport bike shortys on. When I put the stock one on it didn’t have enough travel to disengage the clutch all the way. When I put the shortys back on it disengaged. Nothing about this makes sense to me. Any help is appreciated.
