Hi
I have just joined the club. I have a 2013 bike, black with the white stripes. Love it!
I was scanning through previous posts to see if anybody had modified their clutches to reduce the pressure required to operate. Fitting a cb1300 master cylinder is mentioned in one. Can anyone advise if this is worth doing?

Hi Mike, welcome to the club. I did the cb1300 mastercylinder change only because of the Barnett Clutch upgrade. Light as a feather now :D

Thanks.
I'm just having trouble in traffic, thumb joint starts to ache. I think the clutch in mine is stock. Did you just do a straight swop or is any modification needed?

I will, always wanted one. Had a VFR800 before this not as nice to ride as the XJR. It's a keeper.
