    That clutch setup is crazy. I thought it was a dry clutch setup at first but after looking at it for a minute it’s like a piece of glass or plastic and not really a dry clutch. Ooo

    This XS with ‘open view’ clutch belongs to my friend Bert Kettingvet.
    He was the first who did this trick on a XS 650, that’s about 5 years ago. It’s really nice to see, especially with engine running!!
    The hydrolic clutch in pic four is my own bike I made a couple of years ago, a XS 650 in FZR style. The open view clutch have I also done on my LynXS project, here you find a pic of it
