Has anyone permanently fixed it? How did you do so? I'm contemplating a complete Barnett clutch kit soon as I just can't live with it - I'm afraid I'm going to get asspacked by a cager some day pulling too slowly off a light!

Best place to start is to clean the slave cylinder. That's where my problem was.
Remove, dissassemble, clean thoroughly, reassemble - preferrably with brake grease, bleed.
Now mine is smooth as butter.
It's cheap and not hard to do.

I changed the clutch a couple thousand K's ago, just because I would have the cover off, and doing the clear cover mod, and the clutch still works fine.

I keep my lever pivots greased, my hydraulic cylinders clean, and my fluid clear (Not brown!). Just switched over to an SP1 clutch master with my front end rebuild, and it's even better than the stock VFR was.
Cheapest thing to try is flushing the fluid, maybe even pull the slave cylinder and clean the bore and seal, make sure the pushrod is clean and straight. Take off the lever and clean the pivot and where the lever pushes the master cylinder and lightly grease them.

kaldek, did you use factory Honda parts or aftermarket?
