Is there any advantages to having a hydraulic clutch?

I will be getting new pedals and saw some really nice hydraulic pedals.

I like the fact that the freakin' clutch cable hook (tends to break) is a thing of the past with my hydraulic setup...

I think it should be more reliable than manual. As for adjustment, I haven't had to do much to it yet, so I can't say for sure. I don't think it's a big deal once you know how to do it though.

As far as Hyd clutches, I pulled the engine and 3 rib installed a 6 rib with new clutch, I hooked up the slave cylinder to the clutch arm and that was it, no bowden tube, no messing with cables, Done!



Reliability depends on the quality of what you buy.

I am looking to get the CNC model. Seen the most of you guys use it and I figured I couldn't go wrong with it.

What type of fluid do you guys use??

DOT 3 Brake fluid. I bought a cheapy slave cylinder and ended up replacing, CNC has been good to go.

Has anybody tried the silicone brake fluid? Doesn't absorb water and won't peel paint. It can't be mixed with DOT 3 though so using it when installing a new system would be the hot ticket. Cool

I have heard the same thing. I actually useDOT 5 Racing Brake fluid on my motorcycel. From the graphs and charts I have seen the DOT 5 takes a lot to break down and does not heat up as fast.
