easier pull but the slave cylinder was touching the header pipe and would melt the line for sure (with both a FMF Gnarly and SST header pipe) unless you want to modify clutch cable stay or put dents in your header I would not recommend. Newer yz with the clutch arm on other side of engine would work fine Im sure. installed WC ez build lever kit instead and found my lever pull was much much lighter with heavy duty clutch springs.

I've mostly ridden ktm's so switching to a honda and a regular clutch was a huge change, but putting this after market hydraulic clutch on was the best upgrade ever!
Fitment is perfect. Motosport knows which unit to send for a given bike. Installation was less than 1/2 hour. It's a 1 or 2 finger clutch pull now.
Install went fine. I had to take off number plates, seat and exhaust to get it routed correctly. It works great. I have heavy duty springs installed on my bike and now I can use just 2 fingers on the clutch. The instructions said after install to pull in clutch and put it into gear (motor not running) to make sure it releases properly. Don't bother. I spent the next hour trying to shim it and get it to release and never could get it. I reread the reviews and nobody had this problem so I started up the bike pushed the front wheel against a wall and put it into gear. It worked awesome! No shims needed. Engagement is just how I like it.
great clutch lever! it does its job in making the squeeze quite a bit less tough on your hand. Don't freak out about the slight extra cable length...Just get your zipties and go to work!
let me be clear this is worth the money. I am a xc racer and after a while i was having trouble pulling the clutch and i hated cleaning the cable and all that so i found this and i LOVE IT i can pull it with my pinky it was so easy to hook up, i am a professional mechanic but any dummy with a socket wrench set can put this on in a matter on minuets. the only thing you may not like is if you have to replace the lever it is a bit more expensive, but if you're a racer and have a budget this is no problem. The only other thing is you have to bleed the line eventually, its very easy to learn and if you didnt want to im sure any shop even some bike shops and bleed it.
I installed this on a CR250R, for a rider that has smaller hands. The MAGURA clutch lever can be adjusted for a shorter reach, enabling those with smaller hands to have more control. The easier pull at the lever is worth it alone, but the adjustability is why I bought one.
I recommend this to anyone who rides. Best product I've put on my bike hands down. Greatly reduces fatigue.
Works Great! make sure you route the line so it is away from the pipe... I was so excited to try it I threw it in, in the same location as the stock cable and it was to close to the pipe resulting in a awesome clutch for about a minute! haha. I got a braided line for it now and made sure it was clear of the pipe and it works awesome!
I have one of these clutches on my new 2014 CRF450R and it is absolutely amazing! I had one on my 2010 CRF250R but we parted ways to get my 450 and i bought the brand new Magura Clucth with the sick black oil resevoir. They pull with such ease and help reduce tired hands and forearms! it's a great product to have and i would and have recommended it!
The Magura Hydraulic clutch 167 is a must have if you ride a 450 and are tired of getting torched out in long motos or just want an easier feel in a clutch. It goes in like butter with minimal effort which translates into less energy used by you and gone are clutch lever adjustments every moto! This is one product that is worth the price.
I like the product. Instructions were not clear for install on my bike. Had to figure it out. Might just be.me. used once so far. Worth it
Installed this on my 2014 CRF450. Makes the clutch pull extremely smooth and is very easy to install.
For people wondering, the little cylinder piece at the end of the line fits snug into the original Honda bracket that holds the cable. The honda clutch arm that holds the cylinder pin pulls the cylinder into the bracket and holds it in place.
I would recommend zip tying the line to the end of the throttle cable down on the throttle body to keep it away from the exhaust.
The only problem with it is I think the instructions were a little unclear. Additionally the instructions are printed poorly so you can barely see the diagrams.
Overall very happy with it.
LOVE THIS CLUTCH !!!
Light consistent pull and consistent actuation.
I was a little nervous about dropping this much on a lever, but I rode it today and it was great. I have an 07 CRF450 and my left arm would always pump up worse than my right arm at the sand track we go to. I installed it in about 45 minutes but I'm very careful when working on my bike. If you have had the clutch cable out recently, it could be 15 minutes. On my bike, the slave cylinder mounts in a different area than the clutch bracket, so don't spend 15 minutes trying to get where it will not. The big deal about this product for me was not the reduced effort to pull the lever (which was a lot better), it was the smooth engagement and the improved feel of the clutch. I found myself stalling less and turning faster laps because I was not avoiding the clutch as much as I used to. I'm a 43 year old novice and I definitely think this was a worthwhile improvement for me and my setup. If you're younger and in better shape, might not be worth it. Also might not be as big of a deal on a smaller bike with lighter clutch springs.
I have this on my race bike and practice bike (Honda 450s). Works great. Easy consistent pull, no fading as it self adjusts when the clutch heats up.
The 2011 Honda CRF450 clutch has a pretty stiff action to it and the play would change quite a bit during a moto. This Magura hydraulic clutch is easy to install (at least on the 11 CRF 450), fits perfect and I estimate the clutch pull is about 20% easier.
Didnt know what to think at first, but install was very easy and took no time. First ride i was a believer. I cannot say enough how nice it is to be able to pull the clutch in with one finger on my 2011 yz 450. It has kept consistent pull throughout use and hard rides. I was a little worried since the slave cylinder sits so close to the head but it doesnt effect it at all. also the slave cylinder sticks out slightly farther than Im comfortable with it being but its gone through a series of crashes on that side and it remains untouched. Buy one and you will love life.
Installed on a 2012 CRF250 and it fits excellent and WORKS Great !! 2 finger pull in, and it stays that way the whole Moto.... We installed Heavy Duty springs and this was a MUST have then...
Lifechanger for Crf450r, Just Buy It!!!
