As you may already know: NOW is the time to replace the transmission seal at the rear of the input shaft. If it leaks the gear oil will go down the clutch rod onto the disc. Do you see any evidence (gear oil) that it may be leaking?

Cheers
Steve

Are you referring to the seal at the trans end of the input spline shaft? If you are, I assume "should" be OK, as the clutch and trans was rebuilt about 3 years ago and 10K miles. Other than the DOT 4 on the slave, I have not seen any gear oil to indicate leaks occurring. ...famous last words....

How about the question in my last post concerning the hydraulic line slack? any idea?

Never mind, managed to get both banjo fittings off. I assume getting them back on will be even more fun.

The slave appears to be toast, with the bearing totally shot.

OK, can see the clutch rod (pretty much) and am wondering if I should pull it out for any reason. I believe it should just ull out if my memory serves me right. Or just slap the new cylinder on (after much cussin' and contortion) and call it good. Thoughts?

Never mind, again.....

Did not pull the rod, after reading a few hints that it was probably not necessary/needed. Lines are reattached and the slave is mounted back on the trans. Just need to tighten the mounting bolts. Whew. Would not want to do that again....

Will tighten and reverse fill wit DOT 4 tomorrow.

But first, a beer ;>)

Yeah - reattaching the lines is easier than detaching them, huh...
If anyone else has to do this (and there might be SOMEONE who might have to do it, maybe), I would recommend cutting down the short leg of an L-shaped allen wrench so you can detach the lines before removing the slave. There just isn't enough room above the swingarm with the slave in place to use a full sized allen wrench, but if you had one that was only about 1/4 inch long, it would fit perfectly.
I had thought about mentioning this earlier, but money seems to be in short supply, so I thought I would save you some dough, and just let you suffer... wave

Hi Flars,
Re the cut-down Allen key; I'll be doing the friction disc spacer-insert job to push the plate's hub fully back onto the input shaft splines and thus avoid further spline wear. Presumably I'll be removing the horizontal chassis-bar that impedes access to the slave attachment bolts, and with the muffler, foot-peg attaches, rear brake solid lines, etc., removed and the bike looking as if somebody's thrown a hand-grenade underneath it, access won't require a cut-down Allen key ...??

With the frame in the "ass up" position there is nothing in the way. You can use as long of a tool as you want to. wave


I want to be unique, just like everybody else.
