Re: Clutch Replacement Question
It would only be about 15 minutes additional to replace the slave, since nearly all the work has to be done anyway. Three bolts holding the slave cylinder on (which has to be removed to remove the transmission anyway) and two hose fittings on the slave. I would be surprised if they charged you ANY additional labor to replace it.
MANY slave cylinders have failed in the 30-50,000 mile range, so replacing it now is the only sensible thing to do.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
EX: '01 Black LT, BAT BYKE (Totaled at 110,000 miles)
IBA SS, BB, BBG, 10/10ths.
No bike now, but maybe in the future.
