In the mountain bike industry you can improve lever pull and crispen up shifting by installing "GORE Ride-On" cables. Its like a standard cable but the actual cable slides within a sheath of GORE material within the cable jacket. The interface between jacket and cable is very slippery. They perform better when routed in severe bends too. Is there something available like this for motorcycles? It seems like it might be a good idea to ease that nasty clutch pull of the 426. Every little bit helps.
