Not sure why. The math is correct. The piston moves the same amount as the math said it would...but no clutch activation!!!! RATS (is OK to say rats?)!!!

I guess i'll be going back to a mechanical clutch

I guess that the trouble with designing & building from scratch.

And it was the right thing to do...I got a fresh start this morning and almost instantly saw my problem! I dealt with it and now I am happy to say that my hydraulic clutch "seems" to be working perfectly. Of course the real test will be on the first test ride.

Hey Moonshiner, are you running your bike on "your own" fuel??? I hear that is the "legal" way to brew and not be hassled by the G-men.
Woah! We need more info on your hydraulic clutch!!!!
