XR80 stiff clutch pull remedies?

Recommended Posts

I bought a '02 XR80 for my 9 year old son to ride. The clutch pull is definitely pretty stiff and difficult for him to manage. My 11 year old daughter's 03 XR100 is easier, by comparison. I have read this is a common issue with the XR80. I have lubed the cable. I've also read posts on people adding an EZ pull mechanism (MSR or other brand) or switching to a different perch and lever. I have seen mixed reviews on either of these strategies. The posts also tend to be from 10+ years ago. Does anyone have more recent experience with solving the stiff clutch problem?

Thanks

Kyle

Oops. Looks like the question is asked and answered a little further down the page... Not sure how to delete this thread.
