Hi all,

A couple of month ago, I was deep cleaning my 2005 SP2 and took the front sprocket cover off. Whilst there, I also changed the slave cylinder's gasket as it was looking worse for wear.
Whilst there, I also looked at the clutch lifter rod, pulled it out, replaced it back.

Last week, I restarted the bike for the first time on its stands (I had the wheels resprayed and new tyres fitted, hence the time lapse). I tried to change gear and the clutch would not release, as in: there is no resistance at all in the lever and engaging first just makes the rear wheel spin. It also sounds like a bag of bolts when the gear is engaged!
When on the ground, engine off, 1st gear on, I cannot roll the bike by pulling the clutch.

What did I do wrong? Missed?

Thanks for helping this idiot. :rolleyes:

John

The clutch slave piston probably extended far enough to pull air into the system. Bleed it and it'll be back to normal

When the slave extended out it probably emptied your reservoir and pulled air in. When you pushed it all back obviously some air stayed trapped
