I have had a /2, now have a /6 and a "later clutch".... while I have no problem with the old-style (/2 and /6), the clutch actuation is noticeably easier with the "later clutch" using the clutch carrier assembly.


I think that the EasyClutch was developed 'way back when, originally for those with "softer hands"..... (before pc-ness, when we could lay the issue on women who wanted an easier clutch!!)....brings to mind a friend back in the early '70's who had a souped-up norton with a clutch that needed the assistance of my other hand to fully disengage.... ever tried to do that??!.....hmmm.....rode it only once, got it back and handed it off to stronger hands than mine....
