After handling related modifications this, to me, this makes good sense. Self-adjusting. Direct. Simple.

The first ones I saw were Kawasaki GPZ slave cylinders and matching master cylinders. Easy. Cheap. Effective. Means modifying the left hand engine cover. Opening out the hole. Sanding a flat spot on the case outside. Drilling for mount screws. Making an adapter for the push rod. Install. Bleed. Check. Use. A day-no problems.

I have a unit that bolts directly into the left case. No modifications. Push rod adapter required.

 

VA (stainless steel) slave cylinder … using tidily small KTM master cylinder … bolts into original case … here it’s test mounted to an old cover that was just hangin around (actually i was about to use the cover as a test mount for a KTM slave cylinder)
