    Default Hydraulic Foot Clutch - HELP

    I have a 99 softail with a mystery design trike kit with floorboards and a Baker five speed with reverse. I just bought a hydraulic side cover but am having trouble finding a foot pedal and master cylinder to be able to use my side shift setup. Does anyone have a connection or info on this set up. I'm doing this as the strength in my left hand is shaky at lights...

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    While not a simple "bolt on" work, seems logical that a rear footbrake master cylinder could be "reversed" to adapt to the left hand side, somehow. Making a mount, and footlever would be the biggest challenge, but it doesn't seem like rocket science?

    Hopefully someone on here can help you.

    Another option for you might be an "automatic" clutch. Rekluse makes one for several HD models, perhaps yours is one?

    Here's a link in case you haven't already checked them out... https://rekluse.com/

    Let us know how you do this, if you don't mind...

    Peteg59;

    While not inexpensive I ordered a Chrome Forward Controls w/Hydraulic Foot Clutch # 055114 from Zodiac. I was able to talk to lonny@heartlandbiker.com.

    Through Lonny I made the order. Planning on customizing them to fit. Zodiac is in the Netherlands so shipping was pricey but all in all still less expense than anything else I have found.

    Glad you were able to find a hyd. foot clutch Zaven. I've never heard of, or seen anything from, Zodiac.

    Just goes to show that there's a whole lot out there that doesn't show up on the aftermarket radar at all times here in the states.

    When you get it rigged up, post pics for all to see!

    Default Works Great

    I am having trouble attaching the photos but those Zodiac controls bolted right to the frame and look great. I ended up using them as sent and removing my floorboards.
