$2200 for slave cylinder at A&S...Ouch!!

My slave cylinder for the clutch just went out on my 2001 LT. A&S said over 2k to fix it. Does anyone know where I might get it fixed cheaper around Sacramento?

Hopefully that includes a new clutch as well...

If it's just the slave, Why don't you do it yourself....

Get some of the Cali group to help you... The part is just a hundred...

One year ago I paid $1100 for a clutch and output cylinder replacement, where parts were $523 of the total. Work was done at a BMW dealer.

Try calling Cycle Specialties in Modesto, CA. They do great work, especially, Justin or John. I've had great results. I don't know what they would charge though. I think their hourly rate is $78.

Thanks, you were right. They are cheaper. I'm just deciding whether or not it's worth the hassle getting the bike down there.
