    Default Hydraulic Clutch

    Is there a Hydraulic clutch conversion for the M109R available. I have broken so many cables that I think it is now time to covert. On the other hand why does the Boulevard cables break so easy?

    Its all about adjustment. Back off on the cable adjuster so you can adjust the cable on the pull side. Adjust so you have it pull all the way in and it shifts smooth. That way you have all the play you can get out of your system.

    What you want to check is take the bike out and put her under stress in 2 gear and feel to see if you have a little play at that moment. If so, you have it adjusted correctly.

    After you have it adjusted. Ride it for a bike and see if you have to do a fine adjustment. Just turn the adjuster half turns will be plenty.


    Your cable will love you for it.
    Good combo for the nine. 265/40/18 Michelin Pilot Sport and Metz 130/70/18 front. Try it, youll like it.

    Currently, we have 70k miles, combined, on both nines. I have never had a clutch cable failure. I leave it very slack, and just tight enough that there is no issues getting into neutral.
