Finally I got my RC finished and a break in the weather so I can get it to the dealer for it’s out of province inspection. I’ve spent the winter servicing the bike (filters, plugs, tires, pads, and all fluids) which included fixing a leaky clutch slave. I cleaned out all the crap gave the cylinder a rub down with fine grit paper replaced the seals and it worked great, although like others the clutch bites right at the end of the lever.
It’s a 30km ride to my dealer and my RC performs well and gives me a chance to get used to its character, it sure is different to every other bike I’ve owned and will take some getting used to.
So I check the bike in with the service manager and he gets on my bike to ride it over to the workshop. Of course he cannot get it started, so I explain were the choke is and it fires right up, then he cannot get it moving, what the heck! I give it a try, and the clutch won’t engage, WT…
The lever felt normal, there’s no hydraulic fluid leaks that I can see
Disappointed, I had no choice but to leave my bike with the dealer for the inspection and to fix the clutch, driving home I’m thinking the clutch slave piston must have stuck.
I’m hoping once the bike sits overnight maybe it will release and if it doesn’t have encouraged the shop to try tapping the cylinder to see if it that will release it, I just hate the thought of them ripping into it and telling me about all the parts that need replacing.
