Has anybody tried replace cable clutch with hydraulic clutch?

I did not find any post about moving to hydraulic clutch. I wonder if this would be easy mod and makes clutch moving lighter/easier.

Magura manufacture a kit to covert cable clutch to hydraulic. Its a bolt on kit, not super cheap.
I think if your clutch pull is heavy then the hydro unit will be lighter.
Haven't tried one personally.

Featherlight do teflon lined clutch cables. These reduce clutch pull significantly by reducing the friction of the cable.
Have tried these (not on a TTR) they are magic.

Modifying clutch to hydraulic

Talking to a friend of mine the other day we discussed why the majority of bikes have cable operated clutches. He rides trials and his Montesa (Honda engine) has an hydraulic clutch and it is much lighter than a cable one even when we'll lubricated.

Anyone any thoughts please?

I have just ordered an easy pull. Looking forward to one or two finger operation on my clutch.
Thanks for all the advise.
