Clutch mod question???

Does anybody here plan to, or has ever heard of changing the hydro clutch to a cable clutch?

Is it even possible?

There are kits for the RC51 to do the conversion.

Personally, I don't see the point, unless you have a race bike and you need to save every ounce of weight. I prefer the hydro clutch over cable anyway.

Clutch can be changed to a cable type but there are trade offs. Typically, the reason if to provide improved "feel" and control when launching the bike. Next, the cable setup is a little less weight. The actual benefit and value is boarderline, unless you are having some problem of course. I have not seen a cable conversion on the 1000RR yet, and even the factory bikes are still using the hydraulic setup, although very different fromt the stock stuff. Clutch pull is also typically more effort with the cable setup. We have worked on some minor clutch mods to improve feedback and make it easier to launch the bike. Oil type can also play a significant role.

Cable clutch conversion available here: I posted it about 3 weeks ago. Looks like he's got some new goodies in the works too. Check out the carbon airbox, pretty schnazzy.
