Default Cross Country/Roads Hydraulic Clutch?

I was looking at installing a hydraulic clutch on my Cross Roads but the Victory version doesn't fit. I assume because the clutch cable is longer the hydraulic line in the kit is too short.

Has anyone heard of a hydraulic clutch conversion kit that fits a XR/XC?

You tried it? Did you route it a bit different then the instructions? What if a custom length hose is made up?

I didn't buy it because the Fitment guide says it doesn't fit:
Hydraulic Clutch PN 2876299-266
Fits Models/Years:
Hammer '08-'11
Jackpot '08-'11
Kingpin '08-'11
Vegas '08-'11

The length is an assumption since I also noticed that the Sav-Ur-Ride has two different lengths. From your website:
Quote:
This emergency clutch cable repair kit is specifically designed for Victory Cross Roads and Cross Country. This cable will also work on other 2010 models, but it is longer than it needs to be for some and can be trimmed off if necessary after it is installed
I didn't want to risk ~$400 without doing some more research.

First you will have to know what size banjo fitting on the hand unit.
Them you will have to know what fitting on the slave cylinder.
Now go to barnett and see there fittings. The brake line and hydraulic line will be the same.
Now you can do your measurement for how long a line you need.
Of coarse you'll have to order parts from your dealer.

Measure your line then find a vision and measure it. Try to measure as close as possible. If you can't find a vision let me know and I will do mine. Send to my account.
Keep in mind that a extra inch or two will not hurt you.

Why wouldn't the hole vision line and master cylinder work?

Don't see why that wouldn't work...they use the same master cyl and same slave cylnder.

Witch Doctors sells a hydraulic clutch conversion kit for the Cross bikes. Does anyone have feed back to give as I have not pulled the trigger on this conversion. There is a How to install video on that kit here somewhere but no feedback on it's performance that I know of. One nice thing about this kit is they use a Victory master cylinder so it perfectly matches the brake cylinder.
