I have a 2003 Monster 800 SIE that I recently bought. Does anyone know of a way to loosen the clutch. I do a lot of riding in the city, and by the end of the day my hand is sore as hell! Hopefully someone knows of something. I heard of a clutch slave or something, but I am not quite sure what that is. HELP MY POOR HAND

Thanks

get an aftermarket clutch slave cylinder.

it's on the left side of the bike by the engine cover, just in front of the front sprocket.
follow your clutch line down from the handlebars and you'll find it.

We carry a few different brands.. most around $200. They will reduce lever pull by up to 25% they claim. We have installed many and they do make a difference, also consider some CRG levers as they will bring the lever in a bit closer to the bars and also help ease the fatigue....

If you wish to take the cover off, you could always pull a couple of the springs. Did that to mine with no issue, but I also install a new Barnett at the same time

The soreness goes away after a week or two of riding, once your hand muscles learn to quit complaining and grow up.

+1 for spring removal. i did it yesterday, the actual friction zone seems to have moved out farther from the grip a bit, but it's a lot easier to pull. I'll probably get the stainless springs (a little stiffer than stock) and cancel out some of the difference, but it's quite noticable and only takes about five minutes.
