Well I got a reply on a few questions from this guy:

http://stores.ebay.com/KingAir2000-Enterprises

Seems to be giving all the right answers ie, gave me the slave stroke and lengths etc., and saying all the right stuff so if his price is right I will probably go that way.

Looks very possible so I shall measure a few things and see where it goes from there.

May have to convert to Magura front brake lever too if the clutch works  ;D ;D ;D But thats ok most of my other rides have Magura stuff fitted.

There you go its fine for racing even in stock series.

"human power is excluded" ..... that'll be me.

No boosted systems ...... well thats fine by me too as I ain't doing anything to theclutch springs to warrant it.

But anyway thats neither here nor there as I have no intention of racing at the present juncture in time.

But to me it is an advantage .... a cable system compared to a hydraulic clutch mechanism is like say trying  to write with a baseball bat compared to a pen  ;D ;D

Unfair or not .... Im up for it!  ;)

Mike is right - to a degree

You can't RETRO FIT a hydraulic slave actuator to operate the clutch.

Wrong , you CAN add or change the Clutch from one system to what ever, I said it just was not race approved , I was just looking at Class Racing.  You can do what ever you can afford in the anything goes classes.

As for a street conversion on a Hyosung, I do not think this is an improvement over correctly adjusting the clutch cable..

But if I was building a bike for a handicapped person I would sure look at one and other things like hand shift and single brake control.

Human power is excluded from the ban.

.   For 1000 cc 2 cylinders
Clutch system (wet or dry type) and method of operation (cable/hydraulic) may be altered or replaced from those fitted to the homologated motorcycle.
 
. For 1000 cc 3 & 4 cylinders and 1200cc 2 cylinders Clutch system (wet or dry type) and method of operation (cable/hydraulic) must remain as homologated.

I haven't grown any more cylinders than two on my Hyo, and I don't plan on entering it in any Superbike races   ;D ;D  ;D

But in any case I'm not building a bike to fit any racing code, its for me. ::) So banned or not I'd be doing it.

How far do you think your current Hyo would get in scrutineering for any race code!??  ???  ::)

Lights are out, stands, racks, mirrors etc. etc. etc. probably even emmissions rules today too.

Edit: Its all ok my racing career is not going to be affected!! I can still race it in MGP!! even if they do ever ban it for 2 cylinder bikes elsewhere!!  ;D ;D ;D

Yeah will do. Curretly chatting with Magura, seems they have a good range of slaves and the only difficulty will be selecting the correct master piston dia. 9, 9.5 or 10.5mm. They do a system for the Buell XB which looks pretty much what the Hyo needs so maybe the best I can do is go the same dia. master Piston as that and start from there.

Then I'll have the hassle of finding the right front brake master too.  :-X

Ok still waiting on Magura .....  :-\

but in the meantime

being impatient ....

impulsive .....

and cheap .....

I bought one of these sets off Ebay:

but in Silver
 ..... not really thinking it would fit the Hyo but just semi amazed at the price, so thought I'd get one to play with and fit it on one of the littler bikes I have here. It kinda suggests its for pit bikes etc.  :-\

It arrives .....

its not a badlooking bit of gear  :o

its pre-assembled and hasn't lost any fluid  :o

and to be honest I think it will fit almost straightin the Hyo  :o

Not dead sure the hose is quite long enough as is yet though  :-\


so in a few days time I will fit it and see how it goes.

Imagine that ..... a hydraulic clutch kit for < $AU50

 ;D ;D ;D

and for the Ebay/chinese product sceptics ...... I also ike quality however I also take pride in my cheapness ...... I'm hoping it works and I won't even need the Magura stuff  ;)
