How do you like the hydraulic clutch? One complaint I have about the clutch is it's all or nothing.

I've got a rear shock spring on it's way and I'm going to ride with the forks for awhile to see what I don't like, then I'm sending them in to get a Phase4 modification. Other than that I have the full White Brothers exhaust for mods.

Replace the clutch plates and be sure there's not a lot of slack in the cushion unit.

You're going to really love the Phase 4 if you get it done. Smart Performance, right? Have Dave tweak the rear shock too. Huge improvement.

I can't even begin to describe how great the hydraulic clutch is. Buttery smooth and lightning fast. It is so easy to pull in because you don't have the friction of a cable, which is great when you're deep into a moto and don't have much strength left to pull in the clutch. :thumbsup:

That smart performance kit is very very interesting to me. Any more info on it? Any direct experience with it gray?

Not with Phase 4, but I'm running some of his latest stuff for the newer KYB twin chamber forks and his revised rebound stack in the rear shock, and it's really, really impressive.
