Anyone heard or aware of a Hydraulic replacement for the Clutch Lever
After riding solid for over 12 hours & just under 1000K my hand had given up & the thought came to me that while on a normal days it seems pretty good but on the day in question I needed some help. Anyone else hit the same barrier ??

This posting relates to the Speed Triple NOT the Street

Haven't heard of any clutch pull problems for the Streety. Judging from your avitar....did you mean to post this under Speed Triple??

Funny you should ask as that was the question I posed to the dealer in SLC. The answer was "No." I then asked why. The response was "You get better feel and control with cables." At first I was skeptical, but after purchasing my CBRXX, I can vouch for the fact that cable does give better feel and better control. Some bikes benefit from hydraulics, others don't. Hydraulics on a big Goldwing make good sense. Not so much on a rock-n-roll hooligan bike. IMHO

Buy a Powerball and build up your wrist strength. Really works wonders but just like any equipment you need to use it regularly. I had the same problem for a long while and the powerball was the cure.

Just a thought, have you adjusted your clutch lever position so that it is slightly below the level of the bars.......and have you got an adjustable clutch lever because the standard ones are a long stretch for small hands ?
