k.
I don't think it's the primary. I adjust by the sound method, and actually felt that I adjusted more to the loose end.

It may be improperly adjusted clutch. I have wondered how tight "lightly seating" the nut means. Maybe too tight, or too loose?

The extra work is on the list, I will do it, but after then end of July (my last test, ever hopefully)

Are there any special tools needed to perform either one of these clutch mods?

Yes - you will need a clutch spring Kit Tool - American Sport Bike sells them, and they are found elsewhere as well. Thats the tool mentioned as well in the manual - except theirs is their brand name.

I was referring to the parts listed in the service bulletin.

Iron Machine lists the clutch lever as 03-09 XB silver for $24.95

So, we could use the xb black lever. And American Sport Bike has both the silver and black for $17.50 with hardware.

Thanks for the Service bulletin. I got the parts and the American Sport Bike tool and a friend did the installation to my wife's Blast on Thursday. What a transformation to the clutch operation. Now it works like my XB clutch. When my wife is happy, I am happy. Thanks Badwebbers.

The worst part of the job was knowing it would be harder to get the left footpeg bar back onto the bike. What a miserable, patience trying job that was.
