Clutch feel

searched.
I just did a clutch flush on my 05 LT and an 04 GSA. The clutches feel very different. The GSA when I release the clutch lever it snaps back out but the LT is little slower when released. Is this a difference in the bikes or a problem? Whatcha guys think?
Thanks guys

Re: Clutch feel

How the heck would we (I) know what your clutch feels like...If someone invents a way to "feel" over the internet, it wouldn't be your clutch lever I'd be feelin'... a nice pair of _____ would be my choice!!!

Re: Clutch feel

Rest easy Marc,

I just compared my 05 LT and the 09 GS clutch feel. The GS is very snappy and the LT is sluggish by comparison. I am sure that either would feel perfectly normal if you didn't have them side by side to compare.

Re: Clutch feel

How different is the feel from before the flush, I think that would be more of what you should compare it to. I have hydraulic clutches on three of my bikes and they all feel different.

Re: Clutch feel

Thanks guys for the help. Can't take the bikes out right now because 1 is torn apart and too much snow and salt. I am going to assume they are ok.
