Anybody have one? Read a few posts on speedzilla and the guys who have it swear by it, as with most of the Durbahn products. Been looking into doing this for awhile, just haven't convinced myself to throw down the money for it, pretty expensive.

Any thoughts?

better clutch control allowing clutch slip and better launches, reduced handforce to operate, adjustable declutch stroke, weighs about 1/3rd of the hydraulic system. One less fluid to worry about and maintain.

Hydraulic systems are very on/off. Having a cable allows you to fine tune your clutch operation. Similair results in replacing a hydraulic system a 38mm slave.

i definitely notice the difference between the two. Featherig the clutch is more precise with a cable and gets rid of the sudden grab points you have with the hydraulic system. I'm guessing that is one of the reasons all manufacturers went back to cable. I'm sure a lot of it is personal preference. for a roadbike it doesn't matter and you probably won't notice the difference.

The only thought I have is what a waste of money!! You would be better advised to spend your money on upgrading the standard front fork internals and a decent rear shock if you haven't already done so. I had K-Tech internals installed and an Ohlins rear shock. A REAL improvement in my view. And for those people talking about weight saving, a diet would be more sensible to lose weight. There would be health benefits as well ; )

get a nice billeted 19 x 18 brembo clutch master.
the feeling is sublime,constant and much lighter than the horrid OEM Nissin master
I concur entirely. I also have a Brembo cnc clutch master cylinder and it offers beautiful and precise control. :)

i'm considering the Clutch master as well. If i went that route i'd want to do the 38mm slave as well. anybody know where i can get one?

As for the suspension, i completely agree plasticmaggot. i've got a pretty good plan on what i'm going to do with that.

Thanks for the input guys.
