1800 Slave cylinder
Has anyone changed the clutch slave cylinder on an 1800? I've bled the air but I keep losing fluid. I've looked for leaks but can't see any which makes me think it is internal. I've found the part and it is not too bad. The local dealer wants about $250 to change it and that includes the part. Should I try it or let them tackle it? :?:
If you have the service manual and/or a lot of experience you can probably handle it. Just make sure before jumping in that you know what you are doing so you don't have to tow the bike to the dealer later and have him fix it anyway.
From the 2003 service manual
