The unbelievable Cable Clutch Conversion on your RC 51:
Click to enlarge
This is a very special technical feature with lots of different Advantages , as:
Weight : Complete Kit ( incl . lever,cable) about 370gr ! Stock is 1170 gr !
A continuos adjustment possibility of clutch disconnection stroke from 0.8 to 2 mm !
Okay,you'll say :what do i get out of it ?
I tell you : If you have chosen your best individual adjustment of Mechanism ; already at the first meters you go out on road you'll notice ( i swear ) ,what you constantly missed :
Finally you have the feeling to slip the clutch (a satisfied custumer described as follows : you feel the effect of each clutch lining ).Not insignificant at a first gear , that reaches until 130 km/h.
Finally the handforce to declutch is such minimated as you constantly thougt it has to be.
(I dont know exactly , why it works this remarkable way , i thought a lot about ; but it works .)
Subordinated Advantages :
Your can remove the sprocket without removing the declutch System !
At engines disassembling , just unhook the cable (don't need to care about hydraulic fluid )
Maintainance : Mechanism is insensitive against dirt , but you get a second bearing and axle-kit.(My opinion : you won't need'em lifelong).
Easy to mount :once adjusted ,2 minutes max..

The milling Man studying raw draft of Mechanism ( 1998 Nov ) :
My today's Idea-just to test
the Handforce you need to pull the clutch -lever.. Ok ,even if i've got at
present no RC51 with std.hydraulic -clutch,i've got a RC30 here to test it.It
maybe only an approximate comparison,and-free will- i deduct
2 pounds-the values must convince everyone.Admittedly,my RC51 cable clutch is adjusted very meticolous (the advantage,when you've developed this)-but it shows the possibility of this System vs. hydraulics. The values: RC30 hydraulic,17.21 lbs. My RC51 ,7.94 lbs
