Torsion to Linear Clutch Spring Replacement

TL;DR - The linear clutch pedal spring I installed is working great. Everyone with a torsion spring on their clutch pedal should do this proactively.

For anyone looking to do this upgrade themselves, I've got a short, simple guide to the work:

Fixing the Clutch Pedal Spring
(Torsion to Linear, Eliminate Squeaks)

As easy as the conversion from the stock torsion clutch pedal spring to the linear spring (90507-14030) variant ended up being, it took me quite a while to get around to doing the swap, for two reasons:

  1. I had a bit of a tough time learning exactly where the linear spring attaches.
  2. Every opportunity I had to replace the spring, I was out on the trail and I didn't want to end up in a situation where something went wrong and left me in a situation where I had no clutch spring at all.

Ultimately, when I finally got up the gumption to pull out the torsion spring, everything went very easily. Now, the clutch pedal always returns fully, and I chuckle every time the muscle memory of my foot reaches around the pedal to pull it completely out ...only to find that it's already in the right position!

Time will tell if it's as good as it seems, and my money is on years of trouble-free operation.

Out with the old, in with the new.
