Brembo Hydraulic Clutch

Recommended Posts

Ohh baby. Lines in, DOT fluid in, air bubbles out. And damm, it’s working. I have some tweaking to do, but so far it’s all going together as hoped. Clutch pull is smooth and easier than before. So I have the slipper clutch and best test I was able to conduct was to see if I could pull the clutch in with thumb and index finger, and so on down the finger line. Was able to pull the clutch in with the cable installed with every finger except pinky. Hydraulic clutch, I can pull the lever in with just thumb and pinky. So pull is definitely lighter.

I found a mechanical switch in Germany and I’ll have it tomorrow. That is the only outstanding issues. Clutch switch. I’d just pass it and live with the risks, but my Healtech Quickshifter monitors clutch activity and I think I’d be in for some angst.

Glad to hear that it is all functional and working as expected!  👍

Me too. Lol. $550 litmus test. Real world trials have to wait. Old Man Winter came early to NY.

The clutch switch also plays some form of role in returning the fuel mapping to a base setting when idling. Mine wasn’t quite set up right and wasn’t engaging soon enough and was making the idle rough. Occasionally the motor would stall on fast decelerations. It was also stopping the silly eco light from coming on for some reason.

Interesting. Going to reach out to Ivan’s (my flashed ECU) and ask what specifically he is doing with the clutch switch. The switch is normally closed and interrupts flow when engaged. I’ll definitely keep this mind. Make sure it closes the circuit as soon as I’m truly engaging the clutch. Thanks.

Hi , can you share the list of parts+prices that you use in this project ?,

I think that I'm going to do that too.

Thanks

Look through this thread... he has posted pictures of every part number and documented every step of the install.

FWIW, the mechanical clutch switch on maguras one needs a layer or two of heat shrink on the micro switch arm to correct its operation.

Let me get the switch working so the whole solution is complete and I'll put something together.  Sadly enough I have to remove everything to install the switch and I hate working with brake fluid.  I'm too anal about drips and splashes - makes for not-so-nice activity.  Also, forgot to use the Spiegler crush washers on the slave, so get that taken care of at the same time.  I knew I was going to have to disassemble for the switch, but had to make sure it worked before.

Switch arrived today from Germany.  Looks like a fairly simple install.  Just tap a small hole in the lever and bolt-er up.  Way cleaner than a hydraulic switch.
