    Default 2015 F3S stiff clutch pull

    Can anyone recommend a fix for the stiff clutch pull on my 2015 F3S? I'm tired of having to find neutral at every stop light or getting cramped left hand. I recall Lamont discussing this but my dealer knows nothing of it. Help?

    I believe that BRP did address this issue: tell your dealer to take another look...
    If not: this has also been discussed in the F-3 Section. Use the search feature, and happy hunting!

    Default Little checking..

    Google " clutch assist on spyder F3" and you will get some hits. Check with Lamont as well but there is a kit to help. The older models like my 2012 RS came with the assist making the clutch softer at slow speeds or stopped...

    yep Spyders have tough hand clutch. I tried one in the showroom and that was enough to stay away from the manual Spyders. It took less then 15 seconds.

    I thought about doing something about it, but procrastination and the passage of time has just made my hand stronger. It really doesn't bother me much anymore.

    I also have a 2015 F3 S and I was worried about the clutch but I am almost to where I don't notice it unless I have been on a long days ride or a lot of traffic. I would like to feel the difference between mine and one with the clutch assist.

    Find someone with a RT manual and try it. RTs' have the clutch assist from the factory.
