can i soften the clutch release on a cr125?

Hi guys,

I just picked a 1998 CR125 for my 15yo son who can ride a manual pit bike ok but this CR is from another planet and I think he will struggle with the clutch, I did and I can ride.

There is NO slip whatsoever in the clutch release, it's on or off, is this normal?

Can anything be done to make take off's more gentle?



Problem solved, pulled the clutch apart and filed out the groves in the basket fingers created by the clutch plates over time.

Works great now!
