How far does the clutch move?

On a normal fireblade, how much does the clutch arm move when the cable actuates?

Thanks

James

Not very much, the external arm that the cable connects to probably moves an inch or so (5cm?) when the lever is pulled. It's not as much as you would think.

No worries J, I actually just went and measured it because I had 900 withdrawal. been laid up after some surgery and needed to see the old girl. It's actually less than what I said. It was only like 1 to 2 CM depending on where exactly I measured it. It's barely any at any rate.

Crikey that's much less than I expected, I'm glad I asked before ripping everything apart! Many thanks indeed
