I just did the cdv delete last night.
the clutch catches like it should. no more guess work on when to apply the throttle when i take off!!!
I think the valve restricts clutch RELEASE as well as engagement.
I have a habit of grabbing the shifter as soon as I start pressing the clutch. Previously, 1st gear was much harder to engage when starting from neutral.
Much smoother shifting now.
Everyone should do this mod...
