To me the best alternative is to change it to hydraulic. The MoCo sells a kit for baggers but there is no reason it can't be used on a st. After the first of the year I will convert the wives Heritage.

Hydraulic will be way more an expensive altenative with no guarantee of a lighter pull. 3-500 dollars compared to about 50 bucks for the lite boy. The lite boy was designed to reduce clutch pull.

I agree the cost is high $500.00, I have one on the V-rod and the manager at the dealer has one on his Ultra, and I can attest that the pull is 100% lighter than stock.

Additionally I know of two incidents with clutch add ons and issues with locking of the lever.

Were the problems with the lite boy, I know a few that have used them for years with no problems !!! And 100% would be no resistance at all, the wind would pull in your clutch lever. Just busting you chops, the person asking advice just got the bike and would probably prefer the lesser expensive solution for now..

Diane, i know this an old thread, but i'll thow my 2 cents in anyway. When we were kids the old man used to have us carry around a rubber ball in our clucth hand to build up the strength for hill climbs on our dirt bikes.

I'm confident that you will build the stength you need in a few weeks, and save the money for the clutch kit. It should be able to fit in you hand with the fingers closed comfortably around it. (down thealien) Should be able to pick one up at a toy store for a buck or two.

Perhaps you could get the XOM's face put on it.

Diane, if you choose to use the easy boy lite clutch I have one that I will give to you for free but in my opinion they are junk.
