Hydraulic clutch

Post  Thackers on Fri Dec 27, 2013 10:27 am

Has this been talked about before? I seem to remember somewhere an idea where the clutch cable could be kept and used to activate a Hydraulic ram. My clutch is "firm" and with the Vega short levers I find it slightly uncomfortable since I had a go at half sawing through my fingers  Mad Rolling Eyesaffraid a couple of years ago

I don't recall it been discussed Thackers, it certainly is a good idea with the power of your machine and the one Simon is planning.
I think a guy called lloydy did a conversion some years ago on a series 3 casing, ill have a look and if I find it I will put the link up.

Thanks for that Daz, it's a different one to what I've seen before. The one I'm thinking had the standard cable to it which operated a hydraulic ram that connected to the standard clutch arm. Looking at the space that's going to be left with the reed block etc I don't think it would fit. Making the one you showed more useable. I'll have to look further into it.

stiff clutch

Post  boozee on Thu Feb 20, 2014 12:01 am

having rode motocross for years I found the clutch stiff on some bikes.a good easy solution is to cut the clutch arm and extend it by 10mm this used to make a big difference.

Yes, I could see how that would help, like using a larger lever to shift a stubborn object. I have got a pair of lever covers on to try and see if it makes it more comfortable on the fingers.

That looks like a good bit of kit, no fluid to leak it works on a pulley type system. Around £17 on Ebay, I'm interested indeed.
Thanks for the post Cool

easy clutch

Post  boozee on Sun Feb 23, 2014 1:54 pm

those easi-clutch are a good bit of kit used them on the bikes before. there is a lever and pin inside with a couple of different positions so loads of adjustment.
