These hydraulic clutch components came to me with the Tracker project, still sorting parts and deciding on assembly options.
Do any of you recognize this clutch kit? The only identifying markings are stamped #214
Thanks for any information -R

Its from this German based parts shop. Bought one over the summer. Its supposed to be bolt on, requiring little to no modification. Don't have any feedback on performance though, as my build is still in the disassembled/assembly stage. Tried out the fitment though. Goes in place of clutch actuator. Appears to clear everything, but one small little over sight is that there's nowhere on the crank cover to route it through. One would have drill a hole or some kind of opening.
 
650badger, that sure looks like it !
I as well confirmed fitment under the cover and saw that the hydraulic line would have to be routed low and then up the frame?
Plenty of time to decide on this I suppose .
Thank You for identifying this !
 
I’ve read about this before and it may require grinding off some material on the crankcase to achieve the required clearance. You can see this in the link provided above. The second download in the link is the installation instructions. Without fully understanding the need to remove this material, I think I’d rather shave the slave cylinder if possible rather than the crankcase.

I have a slave I made a while ago with a 25mm piston, but haven't fitted it yet as I don't know what size master to use, fused fingers require a light clutch.
I wonder if you'd be kind enough to measure the piston diameter on both slave and master for me, that'll give me some idea what size master to use.

Can't say that was the case for me.

I'm not sure if it's a translation thing, but it appears that it depends on model year. Still, doesn't make much sense why you'd need to grind off material from the crankcase itself.

Mornin’ curious, gave it a try to disassemble the clutch slave cylinder.. after removing the Allen screws and screws, it became clear that this is German made item😅
Seems to be assembled in both a tight fit, and then a mystery sealer which looks more stuck
than a boat outdrive (and that stuff is real goo)
*! note to all, remember the Germans consider fire, ice, and slide hammers to be commonly used shop tools.
The handlebar master cylinder is small and marked 12B28A so it’s most likely a 12mm piston there.
