Question / Issue
I just put an Ultra Clutch Mod in a 08 GSX-R1000. The lever releases too close to the bar. It rides like a dirt bike, two fingers on bar, two on lever. What can I do to make it release further out?

Answer / Solution
It sounds like either you have air in the clutch line (bleed to cure) or the stack height is too tall.  Decrease stack height by using all thin steels and fibers.

Clutch mod and HD springs: I have both in my Suzuki GSXR 1000 05". What I need help with is the clutch adjustment after both are installed. I see there are 3 adjustment areas; 1) the lever 2) the clutch release adjuster cap 3) and the clutch cable adjuster under the tank. How should all three be adjusted for the correct setting? Here is what I've noticed, when I leave free play at the lever it's hard to engage the gears but when it's tight at the lever it's no problem. I've followed your instructions to the tee and still it boggles me. I guess I don't know what I should expect with having your mods in there. Also where should the clutch start to grab? Very soon from the handle or in the middle? This has been racking my brain since I've owned the bike.
I have an 06 GSXR 1000 with the clutch mod, all 6 yellow HD springs, and I have a .050 washer behind each spring. My gearing is a 16/43. The clutches hold the power (170mph plus in testing last weekend) but I’m having trouble launching the bike. I have heard that I have too much spring pressure, but if I take the washers out from behind my springs the clutches slip in high gears. I have also heard to try putting stock gearing on the bike and leave at a really high rpm so that the clutches have to slip on the low end but they will catch up and grab about 60ft out. The bike is 64" and I weigh 165.
I installed your ultra clutch mod and yellow springs. Now, when I am on the line can I just dump it (does it drag or slip by itself and then bite) or do I still have to drag it? Is there more than one way of setting the clutch? I saw something about washers behind the springs? I am running 14-46 gearing and trying to keep the front end down through the end of first. I have a GSX-R1000 that's lowered and strapped with weights.
