HYMEC – the legendary MAGURA hydraulic clutch conversion which built its’ reputation in the off-road/MX world is now available for many street and adventure motorcycles.

How do you make a good bike better? – Simply improve the controllability. MAGURA now offers a HYMEC clutch conversion kit for many street and adventure models.  The system is compatible with most cable operated clutch systems and is easy to install.

The advantages of the Hymec are well documented in the press and rider forums worldwide and offers a clear and stable pressure point, reduces clutch pull, and is self-adjusting meaning no maintenance required. Regardless of on-road or off-road, city riding or long haul trips the HYMEC rider always has the advantage. Any rider with small hands who has difficulty reaching and pulling the clutch lever, and world champion sport riders who require accuracy and single or 2 finger operation will immediately notice the benefits.  Off-Road and track riders benefit from the stable pressure point due to smooth hydraulic operation and compensation as the clutch heat expands.
