Any advice on hydraulic clutch?

So I have been looking at the Magura hydraulic clutch kit to convert the cable to hydro.

Any other kits out there?

Any advice as to pro and con of each system? (cable vs hydro)

All the Euro bikes have them and we have sold 100's . All I can say is I hate hydraulic clutches. The pull is not easier , they get air in them are bitch to bleed and wish someone would invent a kit to go back to cable . That is all

That covers my main concerns, Goal was easier pull, But i have read there same as cable. Yet the hassles of bleeding another hydraulic line.

My other interest was those easy-pull stunt clutch setups. Any good?

I run a MSR Raptor EZ pull on all my bikes. So do all the stunters. Far better than hydraulic. Easier pull nice feel

What Bill says! There are alot of aftermarket cable clutch levers that offer a different leverage point making the pull easier. I put factory connection on all my off road bikes. They have a tiny bearing at the pivot taking away any friction and the leverage ratio makes the pull is not quite half of stock but a whole lot easier. I can cover the clutch with one finger.,,,,,guess which one
