    The arthritis in my left hand is making it painful to ride the 2001 EV. The Moose system might be the answer if it's .Strong enough for this big a bike. Anybody have any experience with it? No amount of lubrication will help.

    I had used the MOOSE Easy Pull on dirt bikes in the past (cable operated clutch). It took a little messing with to get the engagement set right, but it worked!

    I had one years ago when it hooked up to your clutch cable. Not the hot setup back then because as it got hot from the transmission heat it would start working poorly. The change to fluid instead of cable might !!! Fix that. Without having a M Cylinder laying around I'm not sure i want to try again.
    The Moose would be great but the cable ends are much bigger on the EV and the clutch is a lot stronger.

    There is a system for Victory bikes.
    Overall it seems like they cause issues by not allowing the clutch to fully engage.
    Most owners took them off while a few kept playing with them until they were satisfied.

    I know the "ritis" brothers and Arthur is not nice.

    Long time ago I met a machinist that rode a Laverda.
    He had made his own clutch & brake levers that had small brass wheels built in.
    He had also made his own cables & used the wheels like a block & tackle to make the clutch easier to pull.

    I always thought that it was a great combination of mechanical art.
