I'm finding the throttle twist action and clutch lever pull on my V65 a bit on the heavy side.

I've lubricated the cables and greased the nipples so they can rotate.  The cables are in good condition and route with no tight bends.  My Lario throttle has 2 cables and is lighter than the 1 into 2 setup on my V65.  The clutch arm is adjusted to 90 degrees to the rear of the gearbox for maximum leverage.

I've already fitted the lightest springs in the carbs, too.

Any ideas on how to lighten the throttle and clutch lever actions please?

Get a new clutch cable from Venhill. Then make sure the adjustment at the gearbox end is correct. The cable should be at a right angle to the lever.

Twistgrip, have you considered a crampbuster?

Better 5 minutes late in this world than years early in the next.
