Other manufacturers have had hydraulic clutches since the late 80s. They don't suck. Harley either couldn't figure out how to do it, or do it to a mandated budget. I have no issues with mine.Have you serviced the lines? I've been fighting fluid spilling over ( unless you put the bike on a rack, which is pain in the ass ). You try and bleed the lines but the reservoir holds less than a mouth full of spit. I have replaced the components inside the cylinder and I still have a clutch that SUCKS! 2017 and wanting to convert to old school that friggen works. Pretty sure Harley went back to cable because this was a REALLY bad idea - rant off...
