Don't know if she'd be interested, but Rekluse makes an "auto-clutch" for that bike. Never used one, but I've heard good things. Pricey though.

EFM can make a clutch for that. I do not believe Rekluse does.

Rekluse does make an auto clutch for the DL650, the RadiusX. They do not make one currently for the DL1000, but I am running a prototype in mine and it is great like all of their products!

X-Ring 520 zmvx did chain with stock gearing.

I’ve had 2 of them (the bikes that is). Can’t kill em!

P.S. You might want to remove the footpeg “extenders” if you lower it.

Did you ever get the stiff clutch figured out? I would say change the cable for good measure. The liners wear out on those. A good way to test is lube it with cable lube. If it works significantly better at first it probably needs a cable change.

It's much better now. Beyond bringing the lever in to a comfortable reach, I found a few other minor issues. that I corrected.

When I replaced the levers I found a lack of lube on the old lever, so the ball end didn't want to pivot smoothly. The adjuster at the lever (the ring nut) was bent and I ended up breaking it when I adjusted the cable. The pieces were a bitch to dig out of the perch, and the perch threads were fouled so I had to run the new adjuster through it several times with grease to pick up all the shavings. I also squirted some PB Blaster down the cable.
