Thanks for the responses. I might call Reckluse (sp?) today and see what the chances they can make a clutch for the DR. They make one for the DRZ. At this point, if the levers dont help, I might have to sell the bike to get something that will take the Reckluse.

Recluse doesn't make one for the DR, maybe you need a Katoom...

Magura makes a hydraulic option. Depending on master/slave cylinder diameters you can gain leverage that way.

Ran into this thread while searching. Some good suggestions:
topic11465.html

It's mentioned that a DRZ-400 clutch arm fits the DR650, and is slightly longer, leading to an easier lever pull.

The Magura doesnt lighten the pull, according to the guys at Procycle. I have read about using the drz arm. I might try that too. thanks!

That's why I mentioned master/slave diameter. Should have mentioned that it didn't make a lighter pull as well.

If one were to put that together with a smaller master cylinder piston you would get a "lighter" pull at the expense of needing to use more travel.

Personally, I'd start with the DRZ arm, then try a lever with different pivot locations or the "Easy Pull" device.

Thanks. I will give it a shot.

I just spoke to the folks at Rekluse. Great folks. They said they get at least 1 request a week for a DR650 clutch. Sounds like they cant ignore the demand and might be going forward with developing one. If anyone is interested in getting one, contact them! The more request they get, the quicker they will produce one!
