I just got my 2013 Black Devil and I love it of course. Smile Smile Smile 

First thing I noticed is how easy/soft the clutch lever is to operate and I love that.
It is a real mofo on the 09, I was contemplating a radial master cylinder as a solution.

Do the newer bikes have a different clutch disc/pressure plate or does the M/Cylinder has a bigger piston maybe?
Because there is a huge difference...

Different pressure plate/spring. Changed late in 2010 from memory.

Your 2 valver uses the old multi-spring twin plate which should be fairly light. It was the early 4 valvers that had the 'Clutch spring from hell'. Having said that it has never really worried me as I don't do a lot of city work. Also I used to work on Laverdas. If you want to find out what a REAL clutch feels like? Try a clutch on a Jota! Very Happy

I have owned a couple SF2's and an RGA.
The SF2 is THE BEST motorcycle EVER made. I love it as much as life itself.

It ain't bad at all on the 1100, lol.
Try the early 4V like Pete says and you'll love yours. Wink

While I may yearn for a 1200 8V I am very happy with my 2007 1100.
DAMN fine machine.

Late last season my '09 developed a very stiff and "mushy" feeling clutch pull, accompanied by very hard shifts. Suspecting some sort of internal woes, off to the local guru it went, for what I thought would be an expensive visit... I felt pretty stupid when he took apart the lever assembly and saw that the lever had started to chew into the housing. Apparently a small bushing had come adrift, and it was simply friction due to metal shavings in the action.... Cleaned up, lubed and now good as new. Which admittedly is not as nice my buddy's '11 Tenni, but not bothersome by any means.

Go ride a LMI in urban traffic. You'll grow a pair, or cry for mama to come gitya.
