A friend of mine recently took two of the springs off of clutch preasure plate on his 851 and said it signifigantly reduced the pull required on the clutch lever. He's been riding it like so for several weeks with no obvious problems and his forearms are much happier.

Can you guys think of any long term drawbacks to doing this?

I have heard of this. It would seem in the long run it would possibly warp the pressure plate, and or cause slippage. Just a thought, no evidence to support that statement.

2/6 springs = 30% less friction force on your clutch plates. You should thus avoid full torque accelerations, wheelies, etc, or accept more frequent clutch repairs:).
