The actuator fits in the same bracket on the engine where the stock one does. Just measure up the length of travel from the bracket to the clutch actuator arm and order the right kit.

These are good kits for those having troubles with their clutch.
OK, thanks, I might just buy a new TT/XT later. Right now I needed the cash for MX bike for my daughter anyway.

First disc brake was on a mid 70's Rokon Enduro. A late 70's PE 250 or IT 250 work well and still have parts available. Neither clutch is heavy.
Husqvarna 250's we used to weld on a longer clutch arm to make the pull easier. There was a aftermarket clutch lever- maybe EZ pull? Changed the leverage at the handlebar.

Im sure it was KTM first with the hydraulic clutch i can remember being at the races and they stopped working and they were trying to bleed them but then if it didnt quit working something else on the bike would. They earned it Kant Take Much.

Googled Rokon and that is really the perfect bike for me, at least from spec. Disc brakes and, even better, CVT transmission so no clutching. Where can i get one?

About to buy this 1981 Husqvarna 420 Automatic (modified to 430cc). Twist and go, no clutch, problem solved Only brakes left, will try with the drum brakes but minimize braking and see how works first.
