How often should I change my clutch slave cylinder to avoid a problem with it failing and screwing the clutch up .

I performed this mod in conjunction with clutch and rear main seal and much more.jpspen said:Do the drill mod on the housing and if it does fail it won't screw the clutch..
You drill a hole in the base of the housing that the slave cylinder fits in to .
So if the slave fails the fluid leaks out instead of getting past the seal to the clutch disk..
Someone can point you to the link with instructions... I am going to hopefully do mine when I get it apart this winter...
But today in OKC it's supposed to be 75 degrees and I's gonna ride...
Good write-up and photos Pete - thanks. More details in the HoW (b.2) - click David Shealey's link #4:murray said:In the pictures of my job I was about 3/4" away from the case at 6 o'clock.
Thanks Dave, Yes David S is the man who stimulated the modification. Here's to only slave cylinder failures without clutch contamination !beemerlt said:Good write-up and photos Pete - thanks. More details in the HoW (b.2) - click David Shealey's link #4:
- I drilled a 5/32" hole starting in the radius between the transmission housing face and the protrusion, angling up toward the bearing about 45 deg.. That put the exit of the hole about 1/2" out from the bearing
Not really. I guess a flat could be made on the bottom of the nose of the cylinder, then a hole drilled in it's mounting flange, but then you would have to do that every time it was replaced. The drain hole in the transmission case is a one time fix.bikesnumbnuts said:Would it be possible to drill the hole in the clutch slave cylinder seeing as they are cheap to buy.
