    And that's why I saved this thread (5gb) along with the entire FAQ (7gb) to my harddrive right when the poo hit the fan.
    It opens instantly off my local harddrive.

    I apologize for accusing the mods I just assumed it was pulled down by them.

    The Tilton MC you see there is a 76 (76-875) series that I have chosen for the job. The idea is to slide the adapter into the firewall with the same diameter as the OEM - lock into the clutch mounting plate. The OEM bulkhead seal should wrap around it. Then bolt to the MC flange.

    I'm just sharing my rough design. I still need a lot of measurements and define the locking features into the clutch mounting plate.

    ***Edit***
    I just purchased a brand new OEM clutch master cylinder assembly for the V1. I'm going to use it to get the measurements I need. Then I'll tear the car apart to check clearances and get a better idea of the design. This should limit the down time so I can enjoy driving my car

    This was a popular thread so I wanted to share the outcome that was spilled out over so many pages:



    Thanks!

    I installed it and verified fitment - confirmed, fits perfectly. I'll be testing it this weekend and row those gears. It installs about as fast as the OEM unit does. A technician could install it under an hour - 2hrs for the regular guy with basic garage tools. I'm sending out 2 complete kits next week to some V1 testers for feedback on the quality, installation, and performance.

    Re: pig in slop

    Here is a video of the clutch master cylinder where I show assembly on a spare clutch pedal that I used to design it. I installed and tested it out on my car and solved my issues! No more double pumping that clutch pedal to get into gear and reverse is seamless - gets it every time! Every shift is silky smooth like butter.

    Well done... All of it. The idea, the R&D, the testing and the video. If you say it will make shifting the car better/smoother...sign me up.

    Very nice! I'll do whatever it takes to have better/smoother shifting. The shifter seems to be my biggest complaint in this otherwise very fun to drive car.

    I should be launching it for production in a week. It's been quite an experience designing, testing and fabricating. I can't even count the hours I spent on it. It adapts 100% to the factory hydraulics and electrical clutch pedal position switch seamlessly.

    I appreciate the compliments especially from someone who does a lot of custom work for the V1 - it's blood and sweat on this platform but it's also a lot of fun!

    Hopefully I'm not stepping on any toes here but I have a "feeler" thread gauging interest. It can be found here:

    Re: pig in slop

    I am very interested in your set up. I feel between a much improved hydraulic clutch system and solidly mounting the shifter itself to the tranny the shifting will be to my liking.....(well, I guess a new twin disc clutch wouldn't hurt either!) I think my moms 1981 Chevette had a better shifter than this.

    Re: pig in slop

    Any ideas on pricing yet? Understandable if you are not to that point yet. One of these days as we head north I will have to stop by for a visit if that's cool. We get up to B'ham and Nashville every now and then....

    Come on up and we'll have a beer.

    I like this forum and it's a fine political line when selling anything whether it's out of your garage or professional custom products - so can't talk about that. I updated this thread to show how ideas can materialize. Something that you put in a lot of hard work and can hold in your hand or point to it and say...I MADE THAT! It's a great feeling!

    Re: pig in slop

    Understandable.....I have a side business involving Buell motorcycles and sponsored a forum for over 6 years. I also have my own website which made things much easier once the word got out. I sell products literally world-wide. Sponsorship is not cheap but is worth it in the beginning if you plan on fabbing/selling semi-regularly. I don't know what it costs on this forum but it was around $600 a year on the one I sponsored/sold on. I'm eager to improve the shifting on this car though. Still amazes me how sub-standard the shifter is. But then again.....I'm not an engineer either...

    Making something yourself is an awesome feeling. I like it when a Buell rolls by and I can say "Hey, he has my muffler!"
