    Default short throw clutch on XLH1200S - can I swap out the ramps?

    Hey guys,
    I recently converted my 03 XLH1200S to foot clutch...the clutch throw on this bike is really short, I'm guessing maybe HD did this for the Sport model...so it's pretty damn tricky to operate the foot clutch. I'm wondering if anyone knows if this is actually the case - do the Sport models have a shorter clutch throw? If so, could I just swap out the ball/ramp mechanism in the clutch for one from, say, an 883, to make things easier?

    thanks

    No...... How long of an arm did you use on your foot clutch???? Can you post a pic of it????

    The 1200S has the same ball and ramp as any other Sportster.

    Thanks. Yes, I care. I'm not on here every day. Here's a pic. It felt like a shorter throw clutch when it was stock compared to my night train, and it feels like the clutch spring is stiffer too.

    That's a damn nice setup.... The problem is you need to make an arm to make the throw longer.....


    OR leave it like it is and get out and ride it......If you haven't ridden a jockey bike before it takes time to get use to it.... It looks like a good set up to me..... I'd ride it like that...........
