So basically the 6 speed is just a closer ratio box. Fair enough.

Glad it worked out man!

..those levers! Enough said.

Plus it looks neater than my setup too. The banjo coming out near the bar, instead of underneath, like mine, it makes for a cleaner look.

It's a rewarding feeling right? Lots of heart in your mouth "Ohh no!" moments that end up as pleasant surprises.

Since this is the sticky for Hydraulic clutch conversions, I just wanted to link this thread here so it doesn't get lost later:

Hydraulics and universal harmony: http://korider.com/index.php?topic=26035.0

Great general hydraulics information, lots of detail about cylinder size selection and a bunch of builds with photos.

So Just finished up a hydraulic clutch conversion with new matching MC for both brake and clutch, sintered pads and braided lines (dark red). (http://korider.com/index.php?topic=26035.0) Now I need some help deciding on what colour levers I should fit. I have the all black ones that came with the MC's on there but I also have Gun metal gray with black and red bits and red with black bits. Opinions?

Finished up the brakes and did some testing today. Forget what I said earlier, the brakes feel amazing!

Brake lever travel is the same as stock BUT bakes are now super linear. The 'bittyness' of the stock setup is completly gone. At the start of the stroke, the lever is fairly light and will apply the brakes very gently and gradually. At the end of the stroke, lever is hard as a rock. With full locked brakes the lever does not touch handle bar.

In between the start and end of the stroke is a very very nice progressive build up of both braking force and lever firmness. Call me crazy but when squeezing gently I can kinda 'feel' the texture of the rotors and pads through the lever! (this maybe a psychological effect since I'm sooo proud of my own work LOL. Independent testing needed!  ;D)

Final thoughts on my set up: Its prefect for street riding and commuting in traffic! Both clutch and brakes are now much easier to control and modulate. Also really happy with the look of matching MC's and levers. If I didn't ride in stop start traffic everyday I would probably have gone with the larger MC's as the clutch/brake feel Umop described would suit spirited riding much better.

Not the best solution LOL. I will probably cut up one of my old spanners next week to get it nice and tight. I just wanted to get it done for now.
