Stiff clutch could be a number of things:

-guide tube or throw-out/release bearing
-helper spring
-clutch cable
-improper installation of cable
-pedal bushings
-pressure plate
-release fork shaft bushings

I'd start with the cable. If the cable isn't inserted properly into the bowden tube, the cable doesn't operate correctly and gets messed up.

The 915 I remember has a bit of resistance and the start of the pedal push and then partway down you feel the helper spring kick in and the pedal effort lessens. Very smooth and direct if I remember correctly. Lighter feeling and less effort than the hyd. setup in a G50 I think.
