    I have searched and searched and can't find it. I saw in one of the 4wheel magazines a few months back someone had come out with a cable replacement to the z-bar setup. Could someone point me in the right direction. Thanks

    Sounds like a good idea if there is such a thing.

    I'm starting my hydro clutch conversion tomorrow. Found out the reason I've had so many linkage issues is that my frame is tweaked about 3/8" in that spot, thus not enough engagement of the Z bar there, so it constantly pops apart.

    Nothing really wrong with the frame though, so hydro should fix it.
