Can I use stock springs with the clutch cushion mod?

Original Question: I’ve ordered and installed your clutch cushion mod for the 01-04 GSX-R1000. Would it defeat the purpose if I put the cushion in but left the stock springs in? With all 5 of the HD springs in the clutch lever it is very difficult to pull in, especially in traffic. Im not that big of a guy, at only 130lbs fully suited.


If you change the spring pressure of the cushion you will reduce the life of your clutch – WARNING we have seen the clutch destroyed in a couple of passes with all stock springs! A new clutch cable can work wonders to reduce lever pressure.
