Hi, I am looking at buying (my first bike) a second hand bike (honda cbf 250) and after test riding found the clutch lever too stiff to pull in without getting sore hands and arm. Has anyone experienced this? Was wondering if this is easily fixed. I have seen some posts about lubing cables and changing springs, which the mechanic I talked to suggested can be done, but does this really work? will it be a lasting solution or is it a bigger problem? The owner said it has always been like this and he has tried changing the springs which didn't really help. I have test ridden other cbf250s and i didn't notice this problem. Its going to cost me $50 to get the mechanic to have a look, so thought some community knowledge might save the time and money.
