Did you not like the slack in the clutch cable at idle?At least I think I can certify to those things. You said you got it from a gentleman
Did you not like the feel & harsh down-shifting with-out using the manual clutch lever?
Maybe a Magura hydraulic clutch release conversion would have allowed it to automatically compensate the slack change between idle speeds & engaged speed? I got a chance to ride a new Husqvarna 300 two-stroke on Memorial weekend and never realized that it had a Rekluse clutch installed, because it had hydraulic lever, which I of course squeezed with every shift.
