So I picked up my GS1100G today from Mototecnic (photos forthcoming). The guys there did a great job, & after all that work there were only two glitches: the idle speed was too high (trivial fix) and the clutch is still way too heavy. I've ridden some bikes with heavy clutches in the past, but this is the first one that's had my wrist swollen & me in quite severe pain by the time I finished a commute through the city. According to James at Mototecnic, the issue is that the current clutch cable is simply too short; the wider after-market bars mean that the cable is routed through a fairly contorted path and is fairly taught. He agrees with me that the clutch is a problem, & that it's just not a case of "it's an '80s litre bike, harden up". What I am hoping to do is find or have manufactured a longer, high-quality clutch cable that I can have fitted to replace the existing one. Does this seem like a sensible approach? Can anyone recommend a company that custom-makes control cables here in Melbourne?
