A brief self-introduction
In touring and on the track, it's not a problem.
But STOP & GO in Tokyo!The clutch is often operated more frequently on roads and at low speeds with repeated roadway and low speeds.
There was a decisive event.
I was keenly aware of this when I took a safety riding school.
Frequent clutching at low speeds causes overuse of the left hand, with tendonitis and muscle pain.
We decided to take measures to optimize (tune) it.
A brief description of this HACK
YZF-R3 (MT-03 is the same). If you replace the stock part pull lever (part number 2MS-E6340-00) on the YZF-R3 (same for MT-03), the clutch will be lighter. Here are some tricks.
Parts, tools and things needed for this HACK
YZF-R3 (MT-03 is the same) Genuine Parts Pull Lever (Part No. 2MS-E6340-00) for YZF-R3 (same for MT-03)
Distance between axes
Above Image.:FZ1 FAZER 40mm
image below:YZF-R3 48mm
How will it change with 8mm longer?
Does this principle reduce the weight of the clutch?
How to do the HACK, instructions, work instructions, etc.
The pull lever is attached with a snap ring, so the pull lever can be removed by removing the ring with snap ring pliers.
Replacing the pull levers with R3 pull levers; since the pull levers on the FZ1 were mounted at a different location, I repeated the test drive, only adjusting the clutch and splines, checking the clutch meet timing and half-clutch status.
It took a long time, but it didn't take me more than 30 minutes.
Summary of HACK
To see what I thought of the actual run, visit .......
I sure do feel lighter! (I haven't quantified it, but...)
There doesn't seem to be any significant physical changes, but if the pain in my hands is the same as before, I consider it a success.
The clutch and spline adjustments seem to have worked well.
It's almost as good as the clutch meet timing and half clutch before the replacement.
It's nice and easy to install, with no modification.
If you're an FZ-1FAZER or MT-09 user and you're having trouble with a heavy clutch, how about an inexpensive tuning?
Apparently the pull lever on the YZF-R25 is also interchangeable, but it's longer than the R3 and the clutch connects quickly (shallower), so I guess it's a matter of preference.
If you work on it yourself, please do so at your own risk.
If you are not confident in your ability to install and adjust your bike, please consult a bike shop with a mechanic.
