BTW, I got some very very good news today!
Kevin, I HOPE your babies are coming home!!!!

Clutch pull is not much of an issue, not 125 light by any means but not that stiff. As you know you can leave this bike in 3rd gear and get around 90% of stuff just fine. I shoot/flush WD40 down the cable the night before and that cleans and lubes well. I will get an extender though as a lighter pull would make fanning the clutch that much nicer; man you could really throw some dirt then. Yes, I went for neutral also just to make things EZ'er to start.
