My 500t has a very stiff clutch lever and it's really hard to get neutral
Changing from second gear is also difficult
Any suggestions

These have a fairly light clutch, even with heavy duty EBC springs.

So ... most likely, your cable is in need of cleaning and lubing. It makes a big difference and is worth doing regardless.

Also, at the adjustment at the lower end both nuts should be on top of the projection from the engine cover, not one above and one below. This can make the clutch stiff and/or behave strangely

Also lube the lever pivot.

Marcus you might also want to check that the clutch cable is routed according to the illustrations in the factory service manual.
