I just "tried" to install the Magura hydraulic clutch (bought it from RMATV) and I am having a few issues with it as it sounds like some others had as well. I am hoping you guys who have these installed and working well can shed some light on my issues.
First issue is lack of any free play at all. Using none of the washers and the supplied bracket I have no free play in the clutch arm. There are no washers in there to take out so I am not sure what I do to get more free play. I do have the supplied bushing in there though. Did you guys use this bushing?
This is the length with the lever out.
This same measurement with the lever pulled into the grip (lever position adjusted all the way out for maximum pull distance) is 28.34mm. So I am getting about 9mm of action at the slave. Is this what you guys are getting?
Here's the slave with the supplied bracket and the supplied bushing only.
What are these supplied washers for?
Second issue is that the line doesn't seem to be long enough. I have tried routing the line a few different ways on both sides of the motor (yes, I tried the stock routing) and I can't get the clutch perch anywhere close to the grip. The closest I can get it is about 3" away. It is not ridable like this. I do have a scotts sub mount so my bars are taller, but the stock line fit just fine with no issues.
It was also annoying that the slave bracket didn't fit with the capacitor bracket so I will have to relocate the capacitor.
I actually cut a slot in the bracket so that it can work with the Magura slave bracket, but I need to get the Magura working correctly first before I clutter up the area with another bracket and capacitor.
Oh, and did yours come with a spot for the neutral safety switch in the clutch perch like the stock one has?
