Hi Debbie, my name is Kenny,

You start out saying that your "clutch pedal" is way to hard to push, not sure if I understand what you are saying unless it was changed from the original configuration ?

Ho many miles are on this bike ?

Thanks

1200 miles on bike. brand new clutch
Expert:  Kenny O. replied 2 months ago.

OK thanks for that but it doesn't answer my question, are you referring to the shift lever, or the clutch lever on the handlebar ?

Thanks

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
shift lever
Expert:  Kenny O. replied 2 months ago.

OK Debbie, I'm going to opt out, getting the information from you is very vague, since I cant see or ride the bike, so that makes it really difficult for us experts to diagnose problems unless we get detailed info back.

Thanks
