    Any vet here know much about Brass Balls/ Darwin motorcycles? The clutch is SOO freakin heavy its got grip grooves on it. I know I can close a 100lb Captains Of Crush gripper (no big feat by any means btw) and after about 10 stop lights my left hand was almost exhausted.

    This freakin' beast makes a damn Sportster seem like a Rebel 250.

    I don't think that engine is 6 inches larger. I'm pretty sure the BBBs were built with 100cui Evos supplied by Crazy Horse. Don't know much about the specs but as to Darwin Motorcycles, Dar was apparently a better builder than business man.

    But I totally agree it certainly looks every bit of 100ci.

    Expensive bobbers, dude went out of business, no support at this point. Then again it’s a motorcycle, nothing on the machine requires a degree in astrophysics, inspect the clutch and the cables to ensure proper function, if everything checks out and it’s still too tough, install a different setup or start switch hitting and jerk off with your left hand to build up muscular response.

    All of this.

    The builders that have come and gone since the. HD scene went full retard in the late 90s almost all used commercial off the shelf parts. It wouldn't surprise me if the clutch hub is a BDL type setup that is as simple to lighten as removing a few shoulder bolts and coil springs.

    I seriously doubt there's anything on the bike that would need replacing that requires custom fabrication because it can't be replaced with a manufactured part. And if it does, well... welcome to Club Chopper. Now you know there's a cover charge at the door.

    100% on this^

    Short search tells me itís a Tauer machine Warlord open belt primary using Alto USA red eagle clutch, if itís stock Darwin, which it appears to be. Itís a diaphragm clutch which should be easy enough to pull. So like I said check the cable, is it lubricated properly, does it have any kinks, is it optimally routed? Howís your perch and lever? Check your clutch springs? Are they too stiff, is the pull hard from beginning to end and does it have a give point during the pull with a sluggish return or is it a stiff pull from beginning to end? Whatís the condition of the plates?
