Cable clutch conversion

Has anyone successfully done a cable clutch conversion on an RC51 SP2?
If yes, details would be appreciated.

I converted my TL1000R from a hyraulic clutch to a cable clutch (using TL1000S components) and I really like it for racing.

OMG... that is SO expensive!!! The cable conversion for my TLR was around $100 maybe... since we took parts right off its brother bike TLS.

No no, the weight savings has nothing to do with it... it's the feel & engagement properties of a cable clutch that I prefer for racing. The feel of a cable clutch is much nicer and easier to modulate than the on/off response of a hydraulic clutch.

Thank you for the link, though!
