    On California 1400, is there a way to reduce the effort required at the lever to activate the clutch, an aftermarket clutch actuator possibly?

    Thanks
    Martin

    Thank you Todd for this option. I wanted first to try keeping the current hardware with the integrated reservoir. Can the 12.7mm rear master cylinder be rework, is that an option? Or maybe change the clutch actuator located at the end of the line on the engine block? The RCS sure looks nice!

    No and no... sorry to say. All of the CARC bikes are the same way. Terrible.
    The RCS is worth every penny, and even more so on the brake side.

    I am back. Now considering the RCS 14mm to lower the clutch pull. However 14mm is a larger piston diameter then the stock 12.7mm. My understanding is that the bigger the diameter the higher the effort on the lever. I know that the Brembo RCS has the option to change the lever ratio to simulate the feel of 1mm smaller or 1mm larger piston by turning the 16-18 screw. Hence, if I choose the longer lever ratio, i should get the equivalent of a 13mm piston in terms of 'lever pull force'. 13mm is approximately the same as my OEM 12.7mm which is too stiff already. Is the RCS 14 really going to help for the purpose of reducing the lever effort? Did I get this wrong?
