WHAT WE LIKE
- Installation of the Elite Perch is quick and easy
- Elite Perch lever action is buttery smooth, thanks to the pivot bearing
- Clutch pull is lightened considerably on most model motocross bikes
- Nylon sleeve allows perch to rotate on bars in the event of a crash
- On-The-Fly adjuster is easy to operate on the track and features positive adjustment notches
- Forged clutch lever is strong and resists bending
- Shape of clutch lever is unbeatable
- Anodizing resists fading

WHAT WE DIDN’T LIKE
- The Elite Perch clutch lever’s pivot ratio softens the pull greatly on the Kawasaki KX450F, but it doesn’t actually disengage the clutch completely. Works Connection is in the process of developing a KXF-specific lever.

WHAT WE REALLY THINK
The Works Connection Elite Perch is an amazing part that not only looks great; it also provides measurable performance gains over stock. In addition to improving the clutch feel at the lever, it is easier to adjust on the track than the stock units that come on modern motocross bikes. We have Works Connection Elite Perches on all of our test bikes, save for the KTMs.
