Shit, the Ducabike cart I loaded was $1200, but that's for the wet clutch window, pressure plate, spring retainer, slave, lever/ line kit. Good to know the Duca kit is at least a radial.

You didn't mention lever w/ reservoir. What are you doing about that? I'm a little upset because I like my cheap shorty levers. Hopefully I can swap them.

I'm currently undecided on the master cylinder. I want to see what I can find used. I'd like a radial one but it wouldn't match the front brake master cylinder. It all depends on what I can find for a good deal. The RSC billet clutch I have was like $130. Its crazy to think that for a few dollars more I could have done what I'm doing now. You dont need to do the clear clutch window to do the conversion. I was also kicking around the idea of machining my old cover, brazing on a ring and making a clear cover of my own. There is a guy who does exactly that for the DRZ and they work great and look great. I feel I'm being a little ambitious though. We will see how the hydraulic conversion gos first. I can get the megura hc master for $120-150. If I buy new that might be the one I go with. It's the same one that most of the stunt riders use as a left hand rear brake and is highly regarded.

You'll need to plug the old clutch throw out arm if you keep the stock cover. I guess you could just cut up the stock piece.

It's over the top but my case has rash from a bad storm anyway. My bikes been down for too long. I just want to get it running again.

I hated the clutch when I first got the bike. When that judder spring modification finally came to fruition I jumped right on it. It really does make the bike more comfortable on a day to day basis. I tried to swap out to the RSC clutch first to compensate. It helped but not enough. I have read that the hydraulic system moves the clutch more. That might help. The back side of that center push/pull button looks like it's already machined to accept the push rod. Worse case scenario, I cut the pull piece off the button, pull the arm out of the cover and plug the hole .

For anyone following this, found that Permatex Ultra Grey RTV is a good substitute for Ducati ThreeBond which, despite it's price, is not made of crushed diamonds and gold. Honda RTV is very good, as well.

I also like the permatex grey. That's what I use when assembling engines, even when putting 2 halves of a case together. Very good product. My Andreani fork cartridges came yesterday. Any tips for me? I will be doing it at home. I made a clamp for the fork lower yesterday. The tool that needs to clamp the shiny part of the fork to separate it from the lower axle mount. I have read a few things about machining the set screw vs just hammering a torques bit in and just backing it out. What dis you do.

DISCLAIMER: I took mine to a shop. Just moved to Italy and don't have a garage, let alone most of my bench tools.

Did read up on them. As long as you are good with an angle grinder, no prob. Filling the tubes with oil seemed like the messiest part. You'll need to check alignment but bike wheels are relatively easy. I'd get a good suspension setup before hand. Then, if you need to drop your triple tree, you'll already have a reference line. The adjusters are difficult to access with the bars in the stock position. I ordered some pre-load hand adjusters that mount to the top of the cartridges.

Just realized the stock sprocket cover won't fit when slave cylinder is mounted. You could probably cut the stocker. Ducabike sells one that is cut for the slave.

I seen that too. I intend on cutting the original one (or leave it off) till I can afford a fancy one that is already cut. Not a big issue.
