I wondered, because it enters the gear box in a slightly doifferent location than the bikes ive seen with cable clutches.

figured there was some benefit,

so the rod goes all the way across the trans case, and pushes a lever in the other engine side cover right?

Yup, basically the clutch works the same, it's just how the rod is manipulated. I'm guessing the benefit is that using a hydraulic system keeps the clutch feel consistent.

just gonna toss this out there, been reading a good book, if you have a kindle or an amazon account its 99cents.

very enjoyable, I started it yesterday, and im nearly half way through it, funny, like a futuristic Robinson Cruseo with a bit of a potty mouth.

I don't think it is as much hate as it is just plain fun to rib Albie and his mechanical misfortunes However, you are right, Albie will ride more in one week than I get to ride all year; and of course, he can also break an anvil in a sandbox.
