    Mechanical is a lot more work. I have one on my K20 and it is WORK. Hydraulic is a lot easier to work, but more parts that can potentially leak or break. You can fix a mechanical clutch on the trail or side of the road much easier than a hydraulic one, but I will soon be converting my mechanical to hydro. To me the hydro is worth it.
