I don't remember what your clutch pull was like, but mine is very easy. Perhaps a previous owner installed a heavier spring?

Interesting, we have a similar set of bikes (T800XC, R1100R, XT550). My girlfriend prefers the R1100R. She says the Tiger's height makes her nervous. She'll never get on the XT again because I lofted...

Does it die while riding after 10-15 minutes or at idle? As an aside, I would never leave one of these bikes idling for 15 minutes. It will get mighty hot.

I'm running Shinko 705s on my XT, no complaints. They're an 80/20 tire, so more road biased but would be okay on fire roads and such.
