Wasn't sure after i install it on my 13' yz250 (2stroke!). It pulled so smoothly I was sure I would fry the clutch the first weekend. After I rode it for a while I did notice a more positive clutch engagement and I wasn't as hard on the clutch as with the cable. My hand also didn't get a tired with the Hinson clutch springs. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend it to old guys like me!
