I omitted the little choke lever, but that's the one I'm talking about. Thanks for the pic, Gant.

Standard clutch actuating arm, cable etc and the pull on the lever is similar to the hydraulic one on my Corsa (when I had it).
Changed the Corsa to a modern clutch and brake m/cs and they got lighter still.

... I use the older non adjustable Guzzi Daytona, 1100 Sport version, the longer actuating arm and a brand new cable - the lightest clutch you can imagine on a Laverda triple!!!

I know the ergonomics of a dogleg are different (and i use Jap lever brackets from wreckers with doglegs), but isn't the fact that the clutch pull becomes (miraculously) lighter indicating that the pull ratio is different - which is essentially the same result of the easiclutch?

I've had my own easy clutch (happily slotted the cover) on the SF for decades and never had a problem getting neutral. With the new DAM lever I'm going to fit I cut it down and will only use the lower hole = longer cable pull but slightly heavier - will match my older custom version.
What ... leave it standard??!!

Get some silicone oil and spray plenty down the inner (I make a little funnel with electrical tape round the top of the outer). Makes the clutch feel a lot lighter.

As long as you don't have a Teflon or Nylon lined cable in which case it will soon stop cabling anything.

Guzzi e piu says  Nicht auf Lager (not in stock)
Gutsibits is lever only, at least on the linked page.
I like the look of these things, especially with the little choke lever on top, excellent.
