Clutch help... hydraulic conversation

    I’ve converted to a hydraulic clutch setup. Before I fire the bike up and put in gear I’ve got a question.

    With the bike NOT running but in 1st gear and clutch depressed, can you rotate the rear wheel WITHOUT the engine compressing?

    Prolly not by hand. Oil bath multi plate clutches are pretty draggy cold at zero RPM.

    Awesome. Thx for confirming.

    Was a bit concerned since so much of the bike is custom.

  4. I done many . Start bike up and what I do is while holding front brake put bike into every gear and let clutch in gauge . If you feel a pull in every gear at same opening you did just fine. I had one where the pusher rod was just a little off and no matter how much I played with it didn't in gauge completely . Post pictures would like to see what you used .
