There are several reasons for switching to a hydraulic clutch. Some want to relieve the clutch hand to allow for hydraulic operation with much less effort. Others want to avoid disturbing features at the front end and give the bike a cleaner look. In any way, the changeover can meet both requirements.
If you switch, you also need a new clutch cover. Rick’s Motorcycles manufactures a part for 6-speed hydraulic clutches that fits precisely, made out of milled and polished aluminum. Rick’s Motorcycles offers the cover in a polished, black-matte, black-glossy, or black-wrinkle version. All required small parts are included.
