I Ride: Hyperstrada 821
I have a 2015 HS. Most of the time the clutch is totally normal. But occasionally it is terrible on pullaway, where it pogoes and wants to stall the engine. On a couple of occasions I have stalled. I cannot know when it will do it, it is so random.

I assume this fix will not help me as with a 2015 model I would already have the updated parts? So why would mine occasionally be so crazily grabby. I am experienced rider so itís nit rider error.

Hmm interesting. I doubt this kit would help. Perhaps issues with the clutch cable, a replacement or service of your current cable may help.

This may not be related, but I had an issue like this with a car I bought (2004 Golf TDI) I assumed it was just harder sometimes because diesels have more torque. Turns out there was a problem with the clutch, it was a dual density clutch or something and those two parts had become separated. Sometimes they'd stick together and work properly, and sometimes I'd go shift and there'd be nothing, nothing, nothing and then all the sudden it would engage abruptly.

Probably not related, but I suppose if adjustment doesn't solve the issue there could just be a problem with your clutch.

I finally got around to installing the updated clutch and spring. It's so much better than stock. Behaves like a normal motorcycle clutch now. The hardest part was getting the belt cover back on. I probably could have left it but didn't want to smear the RTV.

Thanks guys for locating the parts and the excellent write ups.

Great to hear! I did the job with just moving it out of the way but it is a bit clumsy.

I tried to do the replacement but couldn't even break the seal of the clutch cover.

Would anyone be kind to post a picture of the tool used to do so? I'm thinking I just need the proper tool and see how to use it.

I don't have any photos but I recall using a bolt and a nut wedged into some spot in order to pop it off. There are a few leverage points on the cover. A thin piece of metal like a feeler gauge can also be inserted and dragged around to slice the sealant.

I took the oil filler cap off and used a small 2x4 with a rubber mallet seated on the oil fill hole. Tapped a couple of firm hits and it unseated.

I struggled quite a bit. There are 2 tabs on the cover to pry against. Just be gentle.

Im in the middle of doing this project, the 3mm rod is supposed to thread into the clutch basket correct, not just stay in place? I am not able to get the rod to thread into anything. Maybe Im not understanding this part.
