  • Clutch bracket..

    Hi all, i'm looking to do the clutch conversion from hydro to cable but i'm having trouble picking up just the bracket that the lever sits on..

    I'm going to get a set of cnc'd levers so only need the bracket..do gsxr ones work?

    i have a tlr brake MC but with the tls/gsxr clutch lever will, tl100s cnc'd levers fit?

    Sorry for all the questions but the bikes coming apart for a good old deep clean so be prepared for a shit load more

    Cheers..
    Thats the great thing about forums, for the 10% of useful information you have to have the 90% of shit that goes with it...

    Just get the one for the tls. You will only use the perch. Cross reference through bikebandit.com if you have to.

      You can buy every part you need to do that conversion new from ron ayers for about $115. I just did it, had everything I needed. Racrboy came over and it was done in less then 30 mins.

        he can supply the cnc levers with the parts to fit your combo
        www.cycleinnovations.com.au

        It never ceases to amaze why people ask for advice then when I give it they either ignore it or argue against it.
        But then I don't know all that much about TL's

        wwjd.......what would jimmy do.

          From what I got out of his post he is looking for the bar mount/clutch switch/adjusters assembly for the cable clutch. If this is the case, it comes as an assembly, with a factory lever from Ron ayers for something like $20

              Can I ask why you're going from hyd' to cable
              People I will not deal with: tl1000swill or tlrwill or crazywheelie or whatever it decides to call himself.

                Cause its more controllable. Not sure about hydro on the s, but on the r it turns into an on off switch after it gets hot. The cable clutch feels like the hydro did cold. I had a stainless line, bled and bled and bled the system, cleaned everything over and over and it never changed. When it go hot I had less then 5mm of lever travel from full slip to full grab.

                  Think he was talking to me..

                  I had a couple of ZX7R's before this with a hydro clutch and it was great! i new where the the biting point was everytime-loved it.

                  The TL on the other hand, well i just can't get used to it (all personal really)
                  and it's not about just off the lights (which is a pain in the arse) just want a clutch that i can let out about half way and i'm off, not nearly full out and knows where!

                  And for all those who "don't have a problem with it"

                  ..i'm not doing it for you

                    If the biting point is an issue I have a mod kit that fixes the problem .

                      ITs the clutch cam set that makes launches and actuation point and lever pull inconsistent. The cable setup is OK but IMHO not any better than the hydrualic and is a lot less reliable. I had to replace the calbe on my TLS much more often than I had to change fluid on the TLR. But to each his own.
                      It's about control skill; this is a motorized dance for joy and not Russian roulette.

                        So this would be when people get the cam set welded?

                          Mine is doing great with the cable. It no longer changes the engagement point when hot. So ??

                            That's really surprising, because in theory the cable system would change but the hydro would self-adjust.

                              Right but your not taking into account for the viscosity of the fluid changing with heat. When it was cold/thicker I had a larger area of slip, when it would get hot/thinner it would turn into an on/off switch. Now with the cable, i will have to adjust for wear, and the pull is a bit harder, but I have the control of the clutch when it was cold. Traffic sucked, and I can only imagine what a standing start would be like during a race when I start that next year. This way, its predictable and when I get one of sams slipper kits, I will have. totally sorted clutch.
