Designed for use by the off-road crowd to facilitate 1-and-2-finger clutch operation, but I have reports of it being adapted for use on HD's and other bikes. My mechanic is "positive" that it'll adapt to my bike.
I am looking for something to help ease the pressure required to operate the clutch lever on my 2010 Triumph Thunderbird 1700 cc bike with these arthritic 72 y/o hands and wrists. I have already ordered a set of aftermarket adjustable levers and I'm sure that they'll help as well. I spend a lot of time riding the little back roads and "twisties" and it's becoming more of a problem every year that goes by.

I tried it. It can ease the pull a bit. The thing is big and ungainly though and I hated the way it looked on the bike. If my wrist got worse than it is already, I'd use it or get a bike with a lighter clutch pull or a clutchless model.

Anything that makes the clutch easier to pull also adds the risk of you not being able to disengage the clutch fully.
I had an aftermarket clutch slave cylinder on the hydraulic clutch system of one of the Ducatis that I used to own that was designed for an easier pull, and unless everything was adjusted perfectly, the clutch would drag enough that I couldn't get it into neutral when stopped with the engine running. I eventually replaced it with a stock unit to solve the problem.
Other than that, I don't know of any potential issues.
