Brembo Hydraulic Clutch

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here successfully added the Brembo RCS19 Hydraulic clutch to is bike?  Looking for winter projects and want something to match the Brembo Corsa Corta master cylinder I just ordered. I did a lot of web research and seems like there is little out there on the FJ-09 and hydraulic clutches except for Magura. By the way, Magura is great, have them on my mountain bike. Thoughts and / or reasons to completely avoid? Otherwise I guess come Feb there will be some data on the conversion. It’s not cheap. Could only find one company to that makes the slave cylinder to actuate the clutch. Any advice here is welcome as well.

There is a lot of good reading here.  https://www.tracer900.net/search/?q=magura hydraulic clutch

One other clutch option if you haven't considered it yet, - the Assist/Slipper clutch from the XSR and '17 FJ09 is a direct fit on the '15/'16 FJ09.  I haven't compared the clutch pull from the Magura hydraulic clutch vs. the A/S clutch but I am very happy with the A/S clutch.

Currently nestled inside my clutch. Lol. Added that fine upgrade over the winter last year. And ordered from the source noted above.

 Why not use the Magure slave cylinder and find a Brembo master to power it, it's only money😈

Have you done the suspension, had the ECU flashed, maybe a new exhaust? Do you have heated grips, led lights or a better windshield? I'm really curious about why you feel you need a new clutch. Will it make your bike faster, last longer, more reliable. Maybe the reason you don't see a lot of clutch stuff is that the stock part works well.

What's the maintenance interval? Don't most require rebuilding regularly? Definitely check on cost and availability of a rebuild kit etc.

Seems like it might increase weight and complexity but that's only a guess. 

One reason I might consider such an upgrade  might be say an arthritic wrist and this provided an easier pull etc.

All good questions. I’m assuming next to no maintenance other than keeping the fluid fresh. Easy with proper tools. Weight will nominal difference, I’m guessing 1-2 beers possibly. I’ll have the clutch and the slave here Friday. Clutch pull with my slipper will be melted butter. Any suggestions on where to get a custom hydraulic line? Need to make some measurements and get that ordered and then we’ll have the $500 answer. Or at least I will.

I'm really curious to see how much lighter pull this has when used in combination with the assist/slipper clutch.

Let me see if my trigger pull gauge goes up that high - lol.  But you make a great point.  I need to do some measurements before I start the swap.  Still trying to find a decent pressure switch that is needed.  For some reason the clutch does not have a mechanical switch, whereas the brake did. I had one delivered today but not a sure that what i want that one on the final product.  I'm not good at documenting stuff, but in this case I will.  Always have to give back to this forum whenever possible.  Even if no one ever reads it, its part of the knowledge database.

I’ve got the magura/xsr clutch fitted to mine, beautifully smooth, I’ve got some sort of funky nerve pain in my left arm and no longer notice the pain when commuting in heavy traffic now.

well worth the wait - and a fairly easy install to boot.  Hardest part of aligning up the shift rod with the internal cogs.  You will know what I'm talking about when you get there.  Have a beer or two ready to ease the frustration.
