    Re: Complete loss of clutch

    Stripped the slave out and there was fluid lying around the area.

    Manged to keep the cylinder but there was pitting on the piston so I have a new old stock one on order so just waiting for all the goodies to arrive.

    Cheers

    I should probably look at mine this winter.

    I noticed a very small amount of fluid on my left boot over summer, and on pulling the clutch there's a very slight squelchy noise as the piston actuates.

    Hopefully just needs a clean up but might as well do seals at the very least.

    Mine seemed to draw in air rather than leak, bleeding got it working again until it stopped working a few hundred miles later. New seals and spring kit sorted it. Suppose its more reliable than a clutch cable though lighter too.

    No grease.
    Make sure to grease it well before assembly. Cleaning removes protective coating from cylinder.

    Evening Gents.

    Managed to get some garage time this afternoon and the clutch is done I think as haven't had a chance to road test due to a footrest problem.

    Master cyl. and slave cyl. seals all new greased and fitted.

    Bleeding took a little time but feels like I've got one now.

    Thanks for the help Amigos, much appreciated.

    I was rather hoping you did but it does nothing on a moving seal that is followed by brake fluid and is purely an aid to assembly

    As such, there are those who believe any such seal should be lubricated by brake/clutch fluid as its argued the grease can contaminate the fluid

    Trusting you did the goid job prepping the cylinder if it lasts more than 1000 miles you will have proof if grease worked for you
    I am not using your red stuff tho but ATE "brehmszylinderpaste" ( damn germans) hopefully red works as good as blue.
