Hard to pull clutch KTM 450 exc 2003
 
Recently I fell on the left side bending my magura clutch lever. I replaced the lever but ever since the fall the clutch is hard to pull. I've back bled the system but that didn't help. The clutch seems to work ok but my wrist gets tired. Any thoughts are appreciated!

Could be any of a million things. Is your clutch master cylinder aligned properly? What about a crushed fitting at the cylinder connection? The cylinder may need rebuilt after a incident like that! Do you use the mineral oil based fluid as provided by the manufacturer? My suggestion would be to work from the cheapest solutions first! Keep us posted.:ear

I use the mineral oil. Of course, I was hoping the cheapest fix of back bleeding would make a difference but it didn't. Nothing seemed out of align or jammed in regards to the lever and line but I haven't taken apart the master cylinder yet. I'm thinking rebuild the master cylinder is the next step. Thanks!
