Digital - thanks for the reply.  I actually used the clutch basket retention tool, the plates were not separated.

I have been out of town all week; will be digging into it tonight/tomorrow; worst case I am sure is a new/rebuild of the slave.  I don't think my issue is with the clutch itself but actuation.

Keep you all posted and appreciate the help/guidance.

There have been a few Forum Members that have had the Clutch Slave Cylinder Seal fail.

Not a major job to fix it wth a new seal, but if the Clutch fluid has leaked out
it is likely to contaminate the engine oil, so be prepared for the additional costof new Oil & Filter.

Clutch Slave Cylinder repair kits available here for £27.95 including UK Postage,
not sure if they will Ship to the US :

I remember that when we purge the clutch pump circuit, we must place the clutch lever wheel in one position and when the circuit purge is finished, return it to the correct position. It seems like a simple operation that we don't remember because it is simple. But…

You are talking about the wheel that the rider can adjust to suit the size of their hand span basically? That's a good point to remember, to spin it back to position/setting number one but I can't figure out why you couldn't successfully bleed the system when it's on any of those numbers. :187:

Surely the plunger on the handlebar would move the same amount no matter what number the wheel/lever is set to? The adjustment happens due to the depth of each hole within that thumb wheel does it not??

Correct, I mean that wheel.

I don't know exactly why, I read it in some section of the workshop manual.

The adjustment happens due to the depth of each hole within that thumb wheel does it not??    So is.
