trying to find a clutch lever assembly that will work with the xs cable and adjuster.

the one i have been using is set up for a harley ball type cable and isnt threaded for an adjuster at the lever. its a bitch and im sick of it........i think i may cry

Im running one inch on my XS, all you have to do is grind down a 7/8 alloy leer assembly to make it fit.

Buy a dirt bike clutch (that fit 7/8" bar) that has a full nylon sleeve inside (see attached pic). The nylon sleeve is generally 1/16" thick so remove that and you have a perch that will fit a 1" bar.

Kawasaki W650 uses 1' bars so the clutch assembly will fit your UJM cable.

Also look at most modern Jap cruisers . They pretty much all use 1" nowdays
I do believe V-stars will be a bolt on

i am running the 1" bars...i have a roadstar clutch perch and am using the stock xs cable. all i had to do was take the little insulator off the barrel on the roadstar cable and put it on the xs barrel that sits in the clutch lever.

Most kawi vulcans run 1" bars too
