Opinion on RSC Clutch

Hi all,
I an interested to lighten my clucth on the 390.I know some going for hydraulic.Would like to ask your opinion on RSC clutch lever. So the product claimed to reduce effort by 50%. Covered by a Lifetime Warranty.

The RSC is machined out of solid 6061 billet aluminum, and is offered in 3 lever lengths,shorty (design for 1 finger),full length (design for 2 fingers),XL (design for 3 fingers). It provides enough room for The RSC has 2 pivot options to choose from, needle bearing or delrin bushing.

Righteous Stunt Metal - RSC Stunt Clutch Lever

So looking at it I am interested to get the fulllength.I am unsure whether bushing or bearing. Furthermore would like to ask if it does lighten the clutch.

I can't see how it can help that much -the geometry is not that different and of course you'll lose your mirror mount.

I can see the XL maybe decreasing effort as it will require less torque to get it moving since its longer.. The full length I'm not sure.

There might be design changes that might make it require less torque/effort to pull. Its possible.. But no experience to back it up for you.

Here is a video I found on YouTube but not for the Duke 390

Thanks guys for the input. From my short read up, un cable clutches, there is 2 way to lighten it. Change cable pivot, change longer clutch link. RSC clutch simply change the location of the cable pin. I have seen in MX forum they just DIY drill another hole on the original clutch. Maybe this a good experiment.Just need to find myself some 2nd hand levers.

I'd be much more interested in Philcoures hydraulic clutch mod (using Racing Boy parts).
