power levers

Postby petermock » Thu Jun 17, 2010 1:42 pm



I just bought a 1977 gl1000. The clutch lever is very stiff. It's a new cable but maybe it wasn't lubed. My friend who knows bikes much better than I do suggested I get power levers for the bike. I can't find them online. Does anyone know if such an animal exists and where I could find it if it does?

Instead of using big levers to force things more than they were designed, why not try lubricating the cable first?

Thanks Wing. We lubed all the cables yesterday and I did some riding. It seems to be loosening up a bit or I'm just getting used to it. I really like this site. I'm sure I'll be using it some more.
