    I've ran the clutch lever for 400hrs. between 2 different bike and I really like it. But recently have been riding buddies bike with a stock lever and it feels smoother, as in easier to feather the clutch. Making the midwest lever feel more like a light switch, anyone else find this?

    I am the very same and I have not used my midwest in about 2 years, I found for racing the Midwest is great as it helps with arm pump and fatigue etc. Part of the drawback with the midwest I suppose, but the product is well priced compared to any other solution IMO (Apart from removing clutch spring or washers)

    Same. I don't think I could get along with it on my 2 stroke, but the trade off seems worth it on my 500. Before the lever my left hand fatigue was really holding me back on that bike and I'm too proud (read: CHEAP) to invest in a rekluse. With it, I can ride the bike all day much happier. Clutch on a 250 or 300 2 stroke is much lighter anyway and that precise stock feeling really makes a big difference. Big, brutish 500, not as big a loss.

    I think it's a trade-off, the Midwest lever lessens the pull, at the cost of moving the break point back toward the grip and making it a little more abrupt.

    I think the Midwest does a good job of lightening the pull but at the expense of a longer pull to completely disengage. I get a lot more stalling on downhills/switchbacks because you have to pull the lever so far in.

    I ran it on my 2011 because the pull was a lot heavier on that bike. On my 18, I stuck with stock lever.

    I recently installed the MME lever on my 2020 250xcw tpi and canít get used to the clutch engagement so close to the grip.
    Is there anyway to adjust it so I get more room for modulation away from the grip?
    I also get some annoying clutch drag, but it does lighten the clutch pull a touch. I wouldnít say 50%
    but enough to feel the difference.

    Any insights?

    That is the drawback of the lever - you are trading clutch effort for travel in that the MME lessens the pull but needs to be pulled further back. I never got on with the one I use so sold it. You can adjust it so it engages further from the grip but be careful because that will generally mean that the clutch not 100% engaged when it's not being used.
