    Suzuki Boulevard C90T

    I purchased my first bike, a new 2007 C90, in March of 2008. I've learned a lot since buying the bike and now know I hate a hydralic clutch. The clutch catches very high and creates problems, especially stopping on a steep grade. I took it to my dealer who advised me that hydralic clutches are not adjustable. If this is true, does anyone have any suggestions?

    You will get used to it. I prefer hydraulic clutches over cables. Cables break, and always need adjustment.

    I have to agree that the clutch gets to be very easy to use and feather after a few miles on the bike. The gearing can be a little tall for slow speed maneuvers, so you will have to get the swing of it.

    If it's your first bike, then you have no idea what a pain in the butt clutches that use cables can be. Very tight, subject to snapping at any given time and a pain to adjust. I bought my 90 in May of 06 and it was the first bike I ever owned that had a hydraulic clutch. Much easier on the hands, especially in stop and go traffic.

    Welcome to the forum.

    You will get used to the clutch. I have had one bike with a hydraulic clutch and it is great. A cable breaks and periodical they must be lubed and adjusted. The hydraulic is just lower maintenance. Every motorcycle has a different feel. You will get used to it and be in heaven in no time.

    I like the one on mine. I remember the cable clutch on the '72 Yamaha 650, and I also recall having a sore left hand from working it every spring until I got the muscles built up again.

    That didn't happen with the C90T that I bought in late December. Yesterday was the first decent day we've had since I bought it and I rode about 200 miles. No sore hand today.
