The Magura conversion required quite a lot of cutting in my 2000, but it was easy to do with a soldering iron and file. Now the housing looks crude and I am a bit worried about possible water damage with time. Anyhow, I think it was worth of it. Clutch pull is so much easier now.
KTM had some trouble with a subcontractor some years ago. I went through three clutch cables in about 5000 km. They corrected the problem with a cable which has a plastic knot at the lever end. The previous one was made of metal. I think that 14k is not too bad even with the new one, because a cable will stick in that time and becomes too hard to pull.
