    Thats pretty good footage 1 Lunger[​IMG] . Was pretty impressed with the lack of wind noise and the clarity in which you could hear you and the bike. Were abouts is the mic positioned and how long can they film for.

    2 hrs continuous in 1080p HD and I forget how long in 720p, maybe 4 hrs. [​IMG] the mic is right next to the lens and its got back round noise buffering. I think these are a great deal! Cheaper than a GoPro and a nice goggle ($60-80 value) too

    Nice. A group of us were out there a while back. We met some hikers too and they seemed cool. Share the trails people. It can be done. We also met mountain biker Jim. I think he had me confused with you (you know, a Husky rider) because I had never met him before. Ed G knows him.

    Yeah that guy seems to have disappeared, emails go unanswered.

    Besides, he was charging around $100 for that...To get an extra 6-8 ounces? Not worth it to me.

    Harley had these back in the 50's. They reduce pull effort but increase pull length. Not to mention additional weight.

    If you think the clutch pull is excessive on your Husky, something is wrong.
    I say that because the clutch on my 2000 model has a super easy clutch pull, best ever!
    Y'all must have a rotten cable, lever in need of cleaning and lube or bad shaft bearing.

    Yeah, and? My 07 clutch is buttery smooth and has just the right amount of resistance. I've seen a lot of people wanting to go to a hydro clutch, never understood why, those things are horrible, spongy and no feel to them.

    But maybe that's just because I've only ever had one bike with a hydro clutch (which I changed to a cable LOL)

    not worth it for the extra capacity but worth it to me for convenience and an extra bit of bling!

    Yes they sure have. The 07 clutch has 07 springs, 07 plates, 07 cable, and an 07 lever. The 2000 model has the same items but they were made in 2000.
    Try a good cleanning, lubracation, and adjustment before condeming.

    Isn't it funny how some folk just want to change for the sake of change?
    They always rip on and want to change the easy stuff like side stands and seats. Instead of servicing the steerhead bearings they add a steering dampner.:rofl
    A hyd. clutch is great! Hey, less moving parts. But of course the master and slave cylinders take alot of wear as a result of use. The clutch is used much mpore than brakes. The seals and cylinder bores wear. My K1200 has a hyd. clutch and at 64K miles it is still working smoothly.

    Getting the cable aligned properly at both ends so it doesn't rub against the end of the housing making a corner when it's under tension, and cleaning and lubricating the lever and cable makes a huge difference. Mine is buttery smooth, and I'm not worried about wearing it out. The effort is on par with, or lower than, the hydro clutches on new bikes at the dealer.

    I lube mine all the time and the pull is fine - how do you align the cable and keep it so?

    That thing must work like a block and tackle. I too have no trouble with clutch pull on the 610. My OEM cable broke at 2k, but the motion pro +2" I replaced it with has been great for 5k+ and I also haven't had any trouble finding -N- ever! I think it's important the cables routed proper (a zip tie) near the lever to keep the cable from bowing helps.

    Edit: with the pad and risers I don't have it zip tied anymore. It lines up very nice by itself now. [​IMG] I think like most of us, I too run the cable up through the top bar clamp. I did spend some time fiddling with the bottom cable mount when I installed it, marketing sure it wasn't rubbing on the cable housing. FWIW, don't spend the money on one of those fancy cable lube things. They make as much of a mess as spraying the lube in with a straw. [​IMG] this stuff works good! I use it for almost everything.

    Does the cable run inside the radiator next to the frame or to the outside?

    I bought my bike used and its on the outside of the radiator,,,

    Thanks!

    It should run inside by the frame and up over the rad if I remember correctly. I zip tie it to the rad fan housing to keep it off the head and then up, but DON'T pinch it between the the rad and frame. I got mine back from the shop once like that and had to take everything off down to the right rad to reroute it.

    That's a clean bike!! I'm mean that in a good sense. It's cold here so I'm not washing mine and it looks like the "red headed step kid in the corner".

    Thank You! But it's not always clean!

    You can also see in this photo that the cable route is behind the right radiator. But not between rad. and frame.

    The bike cleans up well:
