Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.

From what you are describing the issue that you are having comes from the clutch has been replaced with a aftermarket clutch and not with the original parts, this is where the stiffness comes from. The stiffness will get better with time, but it will take a while. In the mean time the only option that you have is to deal with the clutch or have it replaced with the original equipment.
