2000 Rc 51 - Front Sprocket cover will not fit back on after sprocket and Chain cng

Hi All,

I recently picked up a RC51/SP1. While changing the sprockets and chain my friend accidentally pulled in the clutch lever which is rock hard now. My mistake i did not tell him not to. Any how now the sprocket cover will not go back on properly there is a gap. I will search the forum but any suggestions that you may have are greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

V

It should push back on, chances are the slave has come out either too far or far enough to have jammed,
Try pushing the slave back in by hand, be aware it must be square to the bore so may need jiggling a little

odds are it's the slave cyclinder, either push it in or crack the bleeder and push it in and make sure to bleed it once it's on

Thanks for the info will try to follow instructions. I went through the manual and couldn't find how to deal with this issue. Clutch i know i will be able to fix by draining and then topping up. I am more worried about the clutch rod not going in all the way to properly fit the sprocket cover. Thanks once again you all good peps....

this is simple. take the cover off the master cylinder and push the piston back in. make sure i didnt come out far enough to pinch the seal when pushing it back in

and do the nicky mod so you dont have to remove the sprocket cover to change sprockets anymore!

Thanks for the info. Will look into it this evening after work. I tried to look for the nicky mod but couldn't find it. Would you care to elaborate? Thank you!!
