Anyone try the Magura Hydraulic clutch

Recommended Posts

Yep, got it on my bike, love it! The clutch is very easy to modulate and is a lot lighter and smoother. Never need to worry about silly cables again! Make sure you get the longest lever they make, clears the switchblock a lot easier.

Thanks vudboy: I put the ROX bar up and back on and the kink in the OEM Cable sucks. I'm really thinking of the Magura fix. cheers,  KimoFJ burn't out Ojai CA.

You can buy longer cables from Motion Pro or use a cable from an R1...I dunno the years but I recall some post with owners using an R1 cable since it's longer than OEM

Ya I read that R-1 longer cable fix but the Hydraulic clutch had got to be better I'm thinking. kimofj

I went through the hymec catalogs and found it all manually, I don’t have the list of parts anymore though. It was close to the Mt-09 kit but with a longer hose. And no I too paid through the nose for it! ?

The slipper-assist clutch from the XSR and 2017 FJ would reduce lever pull and add a host of other benefits, and whereas there still would be a cable, it would be under significantly less stress and strain.

That's true, but now you need to flush clutch fluid on the same interval as brake fluid. You've traded one kind of maintenance for another.

Less than a minute with a vacuum bleeder.. good trade I say! ?

That XSR slipper clutch does sound like a great swap out. Maybe I'll do it if I have to do any future clutch work. kimofj

Yes, I suppose that's true.
 
I've been averse to hydraulic clutches ever since the clutch master cylinder failed on my VF700 Interceptor way back in 1991. I was riding in to work wearing my US Navy dress whites, and they looked a little less dressy after being doused in hydraulic fluid. That was the first and last bike I ever owned with a hydraulic clutch.
 
It's a personal hangup, I know. I've definitely experienced a few clutch cable failures over the years, but none of them ever ruined my pants.

Depends when it breaks and your definition of ruined pants! ? I already broke a genuine cable and then the replacement I made was on its way too, I do like the simplicity of cables but hydraulic is a nicer feel and lighter pull so I rather them now.
