Well that was anti-climactic.
It works. ..but as expected, it's damn heavy. Not any heavier than it was with a cable, but a lot heavier than other bikes I have tried.
I did this:
1. Cut clevis away from an old cable and filed the little nut thingy they provided with the slave cylinder to fit inside the clevis.
2. The slave cylinder comes with three nuts (the one farthest in, doesn't appear to be removable without excessive force), I removed one of those nuts and fitted the clevis on with the filed nut screwed in so that it is flush with the rod inside. This gave me the ideal reach to the clutch actuator arm. *Note: See how the threaded part of the slave cylinder is of a smaller diameter than the metal tip of the clutch cable? The threaded part just fits into where the original cable sat and the rod is passed through where the cable was originally located.
3. Put the slave cylinder into place. *Note: I think it wise to test fit with the banjo bolts loose then tighten everything BEFORE putting it in place, because tightening once everything is together is damn hard.
See how the rod passes through the cut part where the cable is supposed to go? The threaded part of the slave cylinder just passes through the original hole and the nut that you left behind, butts up against the crank case housing.
4. As I am a big fan of their products, I once again used Venhill lines to make the fit exactly how I wanted it.
5. Installed a single banjo pressure switch to take the place of the clutch safety switch and wired it into the original points by snipping the end off the stock wiring coming out of the clutch perch and using that on the end of the wiring on the pressure switch.
Total time: 3 hours.
While I am thrilled with the result of the brakes, I am not happy with how heavy the clutch is. I feel I will revisit this in the future with different clutch MC that uses a smaller piston diameter.
If I could do this all again, I would not use the levers that I bought. I regret now not buying the Brembo knock-offs and my assumption that the levers that I bought would use the same piston diameters that the clone levers did. See, the ad for the ones I bought didn't specify what diameter they were, while the clone ones did. The clone ones were also half the price! Hind-sight is always 20/20, or so they say. Maybe the cheapo MCs would have leaked or not had the feel that these one's do. ...but I think that armed with what I know, I would buy the clone levers if I could.
