Just wondering if someone could tell me what difference a hydraulic clutch conversion made on their TnT? Is it worth it and do you get a lighter clutch pull?
I'm finding with age that the heavy clutch is becoming a real problem now when riding my TnT in traffic.

I run one of my bikes with the hydraulic clutch, the others are still on cable.
I do not notice any difference to be honest.
Is the cable running smoothly through the outer, disconnect it and check its operation.
I think Errol led the way on this , having had a cable break, and getting spares in Oz ain,t easy.
Wyn broke one once and I let him have the spare I had.
it is not a difficult conversion to do, the mechanical lever "pushes " about 6 mm to free the clutch, so it is not a great degree of throw to free the clutch.
That's a pity. I was hoping for a reduction in lever effort.
Cables can bind as they wear as well, making it harder and harder to pull in without warning you that things are deteriorating. That can't happen with hydraulics.
I just converted an RS that had an impossibly heavy clutch. I ended up with it much lighter and could find neutral. Win-win.

Where's the best source for a conversion kit these days? It might be worth a try.
Agree with some of the above statements. Not the 899 but on the 600i, the clutch is unreasonably heavy and gets worse in heavy traffic after a long ride. Few months ago converted to hydraulic clutch using kit off aliexpress. The lever feels more consistent but with increased throw.
Downsides = Less feel on the biting point vs cable, but that resolves with frequent use. Only marginal reduction in lever pull effort 😞
Overall, recommended only if the kit is reliable. With stock, a falling cable gives no advance warnings which was one of the reasons to switch in my case.
