Soften clutch pedal

Previous owner replaced the stock clutch with a stage 1 performance clutch not sure what brand but the pedal is pretty stiff and I'd like to have faster shifts from a softer pedal. Any way to soften the pedal?

Well without knowing which clutch, if it was installed correctly, if he lubed the clutch cable or in what condition the cable is in tough to tell.

Aftermarket quadrant and adjuster are good as the stock units are plastic, get brittle and brake. Will it make it softer no but it will help with adjusting and keeping it adjusted.

Nope, only thing that might make a difference is if the PO did not use an OEM cable. Aftermarket cables are junk and are known to bind up and cause extra pedal effort.

But failing that the only way to lighten your pedal up is to get a new clutch.

Soften clutch pedal

Okay. I can live with it how it is. Is that just how staged clutches are? Or is it how it's installed?

It depends on what clutch it is and if the cable is OEM or not. Some clutches are firmer than others and any non OEM cable is going to make it harder to push in.
