Ok, thanks guys. I got rained out this morning, so I snuck out to the garage. I took off the clutch handle, and there was the push pin sitting in the piston boot. The piston is stuck in. Wont come back out. It's all sludged up in there. That's where i'm at right now. I did clean the resevoir real good the first time around, but inside the master cylinder musta been pretty gunky too.
SubSailor, I think i remember you mentioning in a different post to put in a new diaphram too when I reassemble?
Not exactly. I mentioned that I took my ex-Busa to a local shop to have it serviced and they screwed it up by installing a diaphragm from God knows what bike instead of the proper one.
This diaphragm was much, much larger than the original. And of course did not seal.
So as the bike sat, the fluid sucked up all that humidity here in Florida, and turned into a black goo.
I thought initially the fluid discolored from use, as they often do.
But when I when to flush and bleed last year in preparation of selling it, what I saw was way more than discolored.
It had black slime all inside the reservoir.
Needless to say, I was pissed when I compared diaphragms.
It ain't hard to to do a good job. Just attention to detail.
That's why I always try to do the work myself, if I have the tools to do it.
And gradually I'm obtaining the tools to everything myself.
